Hellenic Association for the Study of English (HASE8) 8th International Conference "The Letter of the Law": Law Matters in Language and Literature 5-8 May 2011. University of Athens, Greece.
Education systems across the world are becoming increasingly socially, ethnically and culturally diverse, both as a consequence of globalization and in response to internationalization. The conference theme, "Globalization or internationalization?", has a particular focus on adult, distance and access education, and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this question from a variety of perspectives. However, the submission of other topics for consideration is welcome and we also encourage sessions within and across a variety of disciplines and fields related to Education, including:
CONFERENCE: American Comparative Literature Association
LOCATION: Vancouver, Canada; Simon Fraser University
DATES: March 31 2011--April 3 2011
What is street style, and what is the relationship between style, "the street," and popular culture? How have the Internet, digital cameras and other technologies impacted how we understand the way we dress? In what ways does street style engage with broader issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality?
The Urban Catwalk: Fashion and Street Culture, a one-day symposium at Yale University, aims to investigate and openly discuss the relationships between street style and identity. We are interested in papers that approach street style from a contemporary lens, but also encourage papers with more of an historical perspective.
This panel calls for papers on maritime literature that represents the experience of Black and Asian sailors and their contribution to nineteenth-century Atlantic maritime culture. Known variously as "Black Jacks," "Prize Negroes," "Seedy Boys" and "Kru Men," a growing number of blacks –- slaves liberated from slave ships, indentured servants and freed men –- joined the ranks of the British naval and merchant marine service as sailors, stokers, cabin boys, translators and navigators. Historical census records estimate that, by the late-nineteenth century, a third of Britain's maritime force was Black or Asian.
