The Elizabeth Bowen Society is delighted to announce its second international conference.

In addition to ongoing supernatural series, there are at least seven new witch-themed shows which started this year: The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Charmed, Legacies, A Discovery of Witches, Light as a Feather, Disenchantment, and Britannia.
The William Carlos Williams Society is sponsoring two panels at the ALA convention in Boston on 23-26 May.

This collection seeks to bring together some of the most recent international scholarship and developments in the interdisciplinary fields of digital and public humanities. Alongside a critical exploration of the production, distribution and scholarship of culture in relation to digital media and technologies, the collection will examine the possibilities and challenges of publicly engaged scholarship in the digital humanities and beyond. Working with a broad definition of ‘public humanities’, we wish to interrogate the multifaceted interface of arts and humanities scholarship and engagement with wider ‘publics’ beyond academia, from literary and cultural heritage to creative arts and performance.
