Dear Colleagues,

Submissions are currently being accepted for an anthology of Appalachian nature writing, tentatively titled Appalachian Nature. While there are locale-specific nature writing anthologies, this will be the first to focus on the entire Appalachian region.

Fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and one-act plays are welcomed and demographics traditionally underrepresented in Appalachian literature are encouraged to submit. While all contributions should engage with the Appalachian environment specifically, possible topics or themes include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:

-Travel narratives

-Bucolic nature

-Disability and the environment

-Animal studies

She looked up from her book. “What you despise most in the world is bad, is stupid art.”

“Possibly. But yours seem to me very clear and very good.”

“If I were to go to Japan next winter you would laugh at me,” she went on.

Osmond gave a smile—a keen one, but not a laugh, for the tone of their conversation was not jocose.

Mobility and Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe

Friday 23rd June 2017, University of Oxford

 

The application of spatial paradigms to the study of late medieval and early modern societies is now well underway. In contrast, the so-called ‘mobility turn’ has struggled to find its way from the social sciences to the humanities and, in particular, to disciplines concerned with the study of the past. This conference proposes to bring the two together by exploring how everyday mobility contributed to the shaping of late medieval and early modern spaces, and how spatial frameworks affected the movement of people in pre-modern Europe.
