At the turn of the twentieth century, modernity positioned itself as an unsettling force that changed traditional modes of communication, facilitated new forms of transportation, and transformed social experiences. Modernity also prompted technological advances that disrupted political/cultural boundaries through war, empire expansion, economic migration, and the like.

Eventually, these movements spread across Britain's African and Caribbean holdings, as well.

Environmentangled: A Germanic Perspective on Ecological Coexistence
11th Annual Germanic Graduate Student Association Conference at The Ohio State University
Keynote Address by Professor Caroline Schaumann
Academic Freedom and Academic Lives
The concept of “academic freedom”—always contested—has been muddied, polarized, and done violence to in recent years. This special cluster of Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly invites contributions from a variety of perspectives that seek to illuminate the politics of academic freedom and censorship in the face of rapidly escalating racist, xenophobic, anti-semitic, Islamophobic, sexist, misogynist political currents. Essays connected to personal experience, or that situate questions of academic freedom within the problem of experience as a category of scholarship and public knowledge, are particularly welcome and encouraged.
