"There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to feel an excessive and unhealthy interest in them. They themselves are equally pleased by both errors, and hail a materialist or magician with the same delight." C. S. Lewis. The Screwtape Letters

"He had vanished like a dream, and yet he was not a dream. He was the only thing real in the unreal emptiness of her unlived life." –Anzia Yezierska, "Wings"
From Anzia Yezierska to Lara Vapnyar, Jewish American women's immigrant narratives have frequently addressed the quest – sometimes successful, more often detrimental – for love in the New World. In many of these works, the desired other stands in for an idea rather than a person, obscuring the material and emotional realities of the parties involved. The love plot hence often encapsulates the immigrant's hunger to bridge cultures, frequently evoking the yearning to find a familiar sense of self, one that feels like home.

Every culture has its conception of animals: as pets, as workers, as subjects for ethical consideration (or not), as national symbols, as objects of scientific study, as embodiments of the complex relationship between humans and 'nature.' This panel invites papers discussing the representation of animals in British modernism. From the humble daytime moth that occasions Virginia Woolf's essay "The Death of the Moth," to the terrifying animal totems that populate DH Lawrence's fiction, modernist animals bring into focus a range of vital concerns in twentieth century British culture.

"Problems of Education in the 21st Century" ISSN 1822-7864
In a 2005 essay entitled "Why Experimental Fiction Threatens to Destroy Publishing, Jonathan Franzen and Life as We Know It: A Correction," American fiction writer Ben Marcus suggests that by catering to the masses, authors have willingly diluted their literary works. For Marcus, this is frightening because it means that novelists are "selling out" to readers who crave easy reads in exchange for the author gaining some economic stability. Even worse, he attests that the publishing world is squeezing out those experimental writers whose works are not necessarily economically viable precisely because they do not appeal to a wide audience.
