We seek proposals on early American literature and history for the Irish Association for American Studies’ 2018 Conference, “Foreign Bodies and Native Sons,” at the University College Dublin (April 27-28). Though the recent U.S. presidential election thrived on the division of “foreign bodies” and “native sons,” this panel aims to analyze who and what constituted “America” prior to the creation of the United States. These two categories offer especially productive lenses into early American history and literature: how does coloniality trouble the terms foreign and native? how did the New World alter the bodies and minds of its disparate peoples? in what ways did early Americans renegotiate their own cultural and national identities?

On September 19-21, 2018, the Biography Institute of the University of Groningen will host a conference designed to take a look beyond our own borders and delve deeper into the question of how the art of biography is practiced in other parts of the world. Biographers from different continents will gather to examine the ways in which their foreign colleagues practice their craft and discuss the cultural perspectives that guide biographers in their approach to the infinite complexity of the other.

BodyWorks takes an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to representations of bodies, embodiment and sensory experience across literature and culture. In doing so, we welcome responses from a range of disciplines, including cultural studies, literary studies, philosophy, arts, history, education, media, social sciences and medical humanities. Through this breadth of intellectual inquiry, the event aims to draw together a range of approaches and methodologies for exploring various facets of the contemporary shift towards studies of the body and emotions in the humanities.
What Future for the Philosophy of Religion?
Editor: Dr Russell Re Manning (Bath Spa University, UK)
We are inviting papers for publication in this special issue of Palgrave Communications, published by Palgrave Macmillan (https://www.nature.com/palcomms).
We are living through an exciting time for the philosophy of religion: a time of crisis. There is, it seems, widespread discontent within the discipline about its current state and future directions – indeed about whether it even has a future whatsoever.
