Papers are welcome for the 85th Annual SAMLA Conference, which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-10, 2013. This panel supports the special focus of the conference, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" by thinking about the relationship between digital writing environments and composing. One of the driving forces of web 2.0 is increased access to production and delivery of content. To open up access, developers, users, and designers separated the practice of designing of texts and systems from creating content for/in those texts and systems (Arola, 2010; Wysocki, 2004). But in opening up access, have we automated tasks that define composing?

Romanticism has not yet come to its end.
–Heidegger, Contributions to Philosophy
What interests us in romanticism is that we still belong to the era it opened up.
– Lacoue-Labarthe and Nancy, The Literary Absolute
What is ultimately at stake here can be formulated in terms of the following question which weighs upon us and threatens to exhaust us: can we be delivered, finally delivered, from our subjection to Romanticism?
– Badiou, Theoretical Writings
'Post-Romantic' is, in its way, as uncertain and fluid a term as 'Romantic'; it is a necessary term, however…'

As evinced by the popular recent television show The Americans, in which deep-cover Soviet agents are depicted in a 1980s U.S. lovingly rendered in "retro" styling, the Cold War retains a hold on the twenty-first century popular imaginary even as it recedes further into the past. This panel seeks to assess the continuing significance of the Cold War in the sphere of contemporary cultural production, whether its spectral presence manifests itself as nostalgia, as with The Americans, or as apocalyptic anxieties (e.g. ambivalence about nuclear technology in the wake of the recent Fukushima Daiichi disaster).
Although European thought has traditionally placed 'nature' in opposition to 'culture', as the title UN/NATURAL HISTORIES suggests, the world in which we find ourselves and the narratives we tell about it can also be seen to stand in a shifting and mutually influential relationship to one another. Recent work in eco-criticism has emphasised the importance of the relationship between our environment and the literary work we produce; while in popular culture, programmes such as the BBC's Unnatural Histories (2011) investigate the ways in which even the most pristine 'natural' spaces can be seen as human constructions.

This one-day symposium is organised by Contempo, the Centre for Contemporary Poetry which is run jointly by Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities.
It will consider the scope and applicability of the ideas of Pierre Joris and Allen Fisher and related poetics, including issues of translation and place-specific writing, in the light of the archipelagic World-and-UK context of the many 'devolved voices' of contemporary poetry.
We would like to bring your attention to TWO edited books as follows: (1) Case Studies in Intelligent Computing – Achievements and Trends (2) Case Studies in Secure Computing – Achievements and Trends. These books would be published by CRC Press, Taylor and Francis and is anticipated to be in print by December 2013. We kindly request you to contribute chapters for these books based on your research area.

In 2010, Belgium (via its institutions, the media and civil society) celebrated the 50th anniversary of Congolese independence with a certain glorification of Belgo-Congolese relations. Yet, Belgium is far from having fully entered a postcolonial era of self-criticism. Despite the indisputable postcolonial historiographical renewal of the 1990s, the dominant ideology appears as permanently caught up in the paternalistic myth of a glorious and civilising colonial mission. The public apologies that followed the commissions of inquiry that brought to light the violence of the colonial power (e.g.
This panel will explore issues of childhood and hybridity in the fiction and film of Indian diaspora, looking at how childhood is represented and/or constructed at the moment of cross-cultural encounter. How are childhood and identity represented in texts or films whose child characters straddle geographical and cultural worlds?
