What is English studies in the early decade of the 21st century, when the national boundaries are being crossed and redrawn thanks to the international flight, the Internet and people flows, when the rise of China starts to challenge the dominance of the English, when it has dawned upon us much of academic production is enmeshed with the credit crunch? New intellectual paradigms seem to emerge as literary studies vie with cultural studies, and other subjects for finance, space, work force and, more importantly, students.

This conference aims to highlight emerging research focuses related to the studies of the English language, culture, literature, art, manners and tastes, etc. with special emphasis to their "oriental" context(s).

University of Nottingham

This one-day conference/symposium will address the significance of transitory, elusive texts in Britain, Europe and America, including textual artifacts that have eluded traditional categories of print, or have been dismissed as short-lived, disposable, or valueless. To this end, the conference seeks to establish the value of a wide range of ephemera, from pamphlets and pulps, agony columns or matrimonial advertisements to pictorial matter, cards, cartoons, competitions, display advertising and personal ads. Recent decades have witnessed a shift in scholarly interest toward this formerly overlooked print tradition. New digital resources in particular are bringing into view a wide range of printed materials once hidden from the sight of researchers.
