We are interested in panels and papers that situate the idea of "connections" alongside challenges, developments, and innovations impacting the future of English scholarship, English as a profession, and English as a program of study.

"Connections" embraces a set of experiences that increasingly has come to inform humanistic inquiry and, more precisely, literary scholarship:

Fear and Loathing: Phobia in Literature and Culture 9th-10th May 2014

Centre for Gender, Sexuality and Writing, School of English, University of Kent, Canterbury, United Kingdom

Focusing on the literary and historical representation of irrational emotions or phobias, Fear and Loathing seeks papers on topics and authors from any period, which aim to demonstrate the extent to which literary-historical study offers us unique insight into the cultural politics of emotions. Given the growth of both affect studies and historical enquiry into emotions over the past decade, Humanities scholarship has generated a rich and varied body of work on the representations and histories of emotions, sentiments, feelings and affects. This two-day international conference seeks to build upon this research and to reflect upon the relationship between the Humanities and the study of emotions more generally.
