twentieth century and beyond
Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the center of digital humanities.
Call for Papers Annual International Conference July 2, 2018: Identity and Memory in War and Peacebuilding
Date of the Conference: July 2, 2018
Place: Hope Park Campus, Liverpool Hope University, Hope Park Liverpool L16 9JD
Deadline for paper submissions: April 1, 2018
Identity and memory play key overlapping roles in both war and peacebuilding. Indeed, the construction of collective identities can make a difference between choosing war or choosing more peaceful paths to dispute resolution. Identity is also deeply entwined in the ways we choose to remember past wars, through commemorations and memorials.

“Ezra Pound and his Palpable Poetics of Environment in The Cantos: The Making Visible of Ideas”
Ezra Pound Society, American Literary Association (ALA) conference in San Francisco, May 24-27, 2018.
Digital America is now accepting submissions for Issue No. 11. We are an online journal that focuses on digital art and culture with an eye towards impactful perspectives in the digital age, as well as deconstructing what it means to live in our current political climate. We are looking for critical essays, film, artwork, design, and reviews that question, analyze, and/or hack the tools of digital culture. We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and global networks of power and influence are examining what it means to be American.
This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.
