The "Reading Medieval Multimedia: Interdisciplinary Approaches" session seeks papers across the disciplines of medieval studies that explore avenues for understanding medieval multimedia works, that is, works which utilize multiple forms of media as a way of appealing to the minds and senses of their reader-viewers and thereby shape reception. The goal of these sessions is to bring into dialogue approaches from a variety of fields that acknowledge the interdisciplinary demands of studying multimedia but otherwise tend to direct their discussions to monodisciplinary audiences.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Ireland is a land of pastoral greenery, but its landscape is an arguably 'unnatural' construct, a topography shaped by a history of conflict and suffering. Gerry Smyth asserted in 2000 that 'Irish Studies and ecocriticism ... have a lot to say to each other', yet despite the centrality of the land to Irish identity at home and abroad, ecocriticism remains largely absent from Irish Studies in Ireland.

41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA April 7-11, 2010 Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure)
From depictions of freedom and enslavement to portrayals of race relations and everyday life, African-American bodies, their capabilities and limitations, and their cultural representations play a strong role in African-American texts. This panel seeks to explore the way bodies are written into being in African-American literature and asks how they are extended and delimited to portray the presence or absence of power, unity, and cultural capital.

'Palestine: Culture, Conflict and Representation'
An Interdisciplinary Symposium, Friday 2nd October 2009
Nottingham Trent University, UK
Keynote address by Professor Nur Masalha,
Director of the Centre for Religion, History and Holy Land Studies, St Mary's, Surrey
As a site of complex and enduring conflict, Palestine – conceived as a cultural entity – poses many challenges to those who wish to engage in the task of its meaningful representation. Nevertheless, a desire to confront these challenges continues to flourish – among political thinkers, activists, scholars, creative practitioners, writers and critics both within and beyond the Palestinian territories.
