POLITICS, PERFORMANCE AND POPULAR CULTURE IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY BRITAIN
7-9 JULY 2011
To be held at the Storey Institute, Lancaster.
This is advanced notice of the second conference held under the auspices of our AHRC-sponsored project 'Cultural History of English Pantomime, 1837-1902'.
We welcome proposals for 30 minute papers which explore the connections between politics and popular culture, 1820-1910. In particular, we are interested in examining the extent to which popular theatre can reveal public perceptions of contemporary social and political issues. And conversely, how might popular entertainment influence and shape contemporary political debate?

This event is a two-day interactive training initiative for postgraduate students in the arts and humanities whose research is connected by an interest in gender and sexuality. The event aims to both introduce and 'demystify' public engagement by providing a toolkit of knowledge and skills to help enable postgraduate researchers to realise the public engagement potential of their research. In addition to keynote presentations by experienced academics actively involved in public engagement, the event will offer an interactive workshop and Q&A session.
Inter/Intra Textuality: An Interdisciplinary Examination of Texts
The Graduate Students in Literature at the University of Idaho invite submissions for conference presentations on the topic of inter- and intra-textuality. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Timothy Seiber, from the University of Redlands Johnston Center; he will be presenting a talk entitled "Total Ecology: An Investigation of Bodies, Media, and Texts."
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 POSTERS
Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing International Conference
July 14 - July 17, 2011
The Book in Art & Science
Sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution Libraries, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library and Institute, and the Corcoran College of Art + Design.
This interdisciplinary panel focuses on the shifting and difficult to define relationship(s) between literature and philosophy, both as genres and as disciplines. The indeterminate relation (?) in the title provides a space for speakers to insert their own approach so that the panel may generate a dialogue between different interdisciplinary methods, practices, or views (in addition to a dialogue between literature and philosophy). This panel welcomes papers focusing on any aspect of this complex topic either in theory or in practice.
Proposals are invited for a one-day postgraduate conference, which will take place at the University of Manchester on 1st February 2011. This event will bring together postgraduates and early-career researchers working on travel, tourism and leisure histories from a wide range of methodological perspectives. The conference seeks to highlight the volume of historical research currently being undertaken in these emerging areas, which are too often split between more established sub-fields such as transport history and sport history.
Suggestions for proposals include:
In the nineteenth century, railways made distant locations ever more accessible, the Grand Tour became more and more a pastime of the middle classes and British imperial expansion brought exotic locales and non-Western cultures ever closer to home. New ways of thinking about and communicating experiences of travel and of interactions with other cultures held a significant influence in various areas of nineteenth-century culture. This period saw an enormous expansion in museums and popular exhibition culture, technological innovations such as photography and film, as well as the vast growth of a popular press that served to deliver these experiences, images and objects to an increasingly literate public.
