The field of positive psychology, catalyzed in 1998 by Martin Seligman and others, has generated new interest in the concept of well-being—conceived in its fullest sense as human flourishing—the implications of which scholars in other disciplines have begun to explore. Owen Flanagan, a philosopher at Duke University, has coined the term eudaimonics to designate the growing, multi-disciplinary framework for critical inquiries into well-being, a topic fueling research in psychology, medicine, neurology, philosophy, ethics, neuroeconomics, and other fields. To date, however, scholars from the humanities, despite noteworthy contributions from philosophers and ethicists, have generally not addressed the subject.

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Newman University English Department presents:

11th annual Literary Festival & Scholars Day
"The Well-Spread Fable: Food and Its Meanings"

Conference Description: Food is something we all think about every day—sometimes as scholars, and certainly as eaters. How have cultures been shaped by food production? How has food been used symbolically? What does it mean to eat? These and other questions will guide our discussions of the many meanings of food. Although the theme of the literary festival is "food," the Scholars Day in which it is set encompasses submissions of work on any topic and in any format. Essays, poster presentations, and artwork from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged.

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) at Oklahoma State University, an organization of English graduate students and faculty members committed to promoting student academic development and scholastic achievement, is currently accepting proposals for its annual graduate conference. The theme of this year's conference is "Transforming Words." In his 1969 work, The Way to Rainy Mountain, N. Scott Momaday asserts, "We have all been changed by words; we have been hurt, delighted, puzzled, filled with wonder." During the conference, we would like to explore the practical ways language functions to effect change. How can language overcome supposed barriers of race and gender?

Early Modern Migrations: Exiles, Expulsion, & Religious Refugees 1400-1700 — April 19-21, 2012

The early modern period witnessed a dramatic increase in the migration, expulsion and exile of social groups and individuals around the globe. The physical movements of religious refugees triggered widespread, ongoing migrations that shaped both the contours of European colonialist expansion and the construction of regional, national and religious identities. Human movements (both real and imagined) also animated material culture; the presence of bodies, buildings, texts, songs and relics shaped and reshaped the host societies into which immigrants entered.
