The Great War: From Memory to History

An Inter-disciplinary Conference at The University of Western Ontario

10-12 November, 2011

There are now only a handful of surviving veterans of the Great War. Within a few years, we will lose even those who lived through the war as children on the home front. At that point, the war will pass from memory to history. This critical transition is at the heart of an international conference that seeks to examine the experience of the Great War from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, including the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts.

A series of questions guide our discussions:

Bram Stoker Centenary Conference: Bram Stoker and Gothic Transformations (12-14 April 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 1:22pm
University of Hull, UK and Whitby, North Yorkshire

"My revenge is just begun! I spread it over centuries and time is on my side."

Count Dracula's declaration from Bram Stoker's iconic 1897 vampire novel is, in many ways, descriptive of the Gothic genre. Like the shape-shifting Transylvanian Count, the Gothic encompasses and has manifested itself in many forms since its emergence in 1764 with the publication of Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto. Its revenge has just begun. It has spread over centuries and time is on its side.

PCEA Conference - Narratives of Travel & Navigation: English by Water, Air, Land, and Imagination

updated: 
Wednesday, December 8, 2010 - 1:01pm
Pennsylvania College English Association

Erie, Pennsylvania, the state's only port city, has historically served as a center for maritime and rail travel. Its waters were vital to winning wars and providing a point of arrival for immigrants. Erie's remote location and close proximity to the Canadian border also offered a conduit for those escaping slavery. Narratives of travel have long served to document the course of peoples' physical and imaginative movements. They have recorded minute details of lived experience as well as aspirations for the future and fears of the unknown, creating histories of time and place, directing individual lives, and shaping cultural realities.

SHAW: The Annual of Bernard Shaw Studies

SHAW 32 will be devoted to the theme "Shaw and the City," with Desmond Harding as guest editor. "Shaw and the City" will provide a composite picture of Shaw coming into his several roles as dramatist, critic, and cultural commentator in active exchange with the metropolis as a site of convergent literary traditions and histories, as well as a crossing-point of emerging national, cultural, political, social, and artistic boundaries. Inquiries and manuscript submissions should be sent to him at hardi1d@cmich.edu or mailed to Dr. Desmond Harding, Department of English Language and Literature, Central Michigan University, Mount Pleasant, MI 48859.
