Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are one of the best known couples in Literature. Since Arthur Canon Doyle first published his famous detective stories in 1887, with his work covering the years 1880 until 1914 when Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson finally retired to the countryside, these stories have not lost any of their charm. Frequent adaptations in both the book world and the movie world have demonstrated that the famous detective has neither lost his charm nor his appeal. Different adaptations have added different layers to the Sherlock Holmes universe. While Robert Downey Jr.'s Sherlock brought a sexy playfulness to the screen, Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock made his social ineptness as well as his disabilities more prominent.

Drawing from Raymond Williams's assertion that "the idea of nature contains, though often unnoticed, an extraordinary amount of human history," we seek to explore how problems of human rights are manifest within environmental problems and proposed solutions. What do problems that arise at the intersection of sustainability and human rights elucidate about the inclusionary politics (including, but not limited to race, class, and gender) of these respective social movements? We welcome papers that consider the overlaps between these two movements and the politics involved in each. Possible topics of investigation include vulnerability studies, fair trade and labor movements, and resource wars.

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2014

From the late 1920s to the mid-1960s, the Western genre underwent a series of surprising transformations, experiencing a decline, a rebirth, and finally, its Golden Age. From highly successful traditional "oaters" and musical "horse operas," Westerns developed into complex, "revisionist" forms during the Cold War that included the noir Western, the cult Western, and the Spaghetti Western. At the same time, the Western also dominated the small screen, its popularity peaking in 1959 when 26 shows were aired on television.
