“American Hospitality” – PAAS/IASA 2024 - September 25-27, 2024

In today’s rapidly changing global landscape, hospitality emerges as a pivotal focus in academic discourse, especially within Western geopolitical contexts. Hospitality, as a mode of conduct, garners both ardent enthusiasm and staunch opposition. As a concept, it presents both notable limitations and diverse modalities. This multidimensional notion encompasses a right, a privilege, an obligation, an act of sympathy, and an expression of charity. It shapes and is shaped by various environments, from tangible spaces and places to non-places and heterotopias (as articulated by Marc Augé). Its expansive research potential warrants a thorough, interdisciplinary exploration.

Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association (RMMLA) 77th Annual Convention

October 10-12 (Thur.-Sat.) at the Westgate Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada

Join us in Las Vegas this October, where we will defy the odds and time, and you can learn how to read some of the 418 (and counting) letter runes found in the first third of Beowulf.

This groundbreaking, ninety-minute session is the first of its kind in teaching how one can detect and decipher between two alphabets that use the same letters, with one being just a letter and the other being a letter that represents a word. Unlike Odin, you will not have to give up an eye.

All attendees will receive a letter rune chart.

Call for Presentations – The Solarpunk Conference 2024: Rays of Resilience

Solarpunk is a growing subculture, existing across various veins of human endeavors, such as fiction, media, politics, technology, agriculture and urban planning and development. Solarpunk imagines an accessible, equitable world either without systemic barriers, or with those barriers in the process of disassembly, while championing intersectional social and climate justice. Drawing on ideas from permaculture, post- and trans-humanism, social ecology, and anarcho-socialism, while reacting against late stage capitalism, Solarpunk declares that our world is worth saving, and that saving it is possible.
