This panel invites paper proposals that deal with modernism, the Great War, and streets broadly conceived. The Great War was a pivotal event in the development of modernism, and many of our key literary works - The Waste Land, Mrs. Dalloway, Parade’s End - respond in part to the pressures of the war. This influence extends beyond the traditional English modernist canon as well, to writers such as Mulk Raj Anand and Tayeb Salih.

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Patrick Johnson suggested in his article from 2001 entitled "'Quare' Studies, or (Almost) Everything I Know About Queer Studies I Learned from My Grandmother," "'quare'...not only speaks across identities, it articulates identities as well. 'Quare' offers a way to critique stable notions of identity and, at the same time, to locate racialized and class knowledges." Twenty years later, we ask whether southern studies has yet to be fully "quare"-ed.

There are two ways of defining what we mean by the precariat. One is to say it is a distinctive socio-economic group, so that by definition a person is in it or not in it. This is useful in terms of images and analyses, and it allows us to use what Max Weber called an ‘ideal type’. In this spirit, the precariat could be described as a neologism that combines an adjective ‘precarious’ and a related noun ‘proletariat’.

This forthcoming issue of Platform considers labour through the creation and analysis of theatre and performance. We follow Kathi Weeks’s (2011) contention that the lived experiences of work have thus far received little attention in political and cultural theory and propose that the material and aesthetic space of theatre can illuminate this daily and bodily dimension of work. In theatrical labour, aesthetic considerations link both the practice of making and the practices of performance. Yet, studies of the performance of work have also been critiqued for conflating dimensions of practice and labour (Wikström 2012). With these tensions in mind, this issue aims to examine the various theatres of labour.

De Montfort University’s Cinema and Television History Institute (CATHI) invites scholars and early career researchers to the second conference on Transnational screens.
This event seeks to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Transnational Cinemas Journal (Routledge) that has just changed its named to Transnational Screens to reflect a changing streaming landscape. This two day conference will reassess the histories, theories, methodologies and practices in transnational screen studies.
Professor Rob Stone from the University of Birmingham will be the keynote speaker at the conference, others to follow.
Recent attention has been dedicated to the study of environmental narratives that relate to current threats to the survival of the planet: global warming, environmental catastrophes, the extinction of species, massive migration crises, etc. A multidisciplinary approach to the discourses that have shaped our understanding of the human sciences is necessary in order to challenge the anthropocentric logic that has framed discussions on the topic. The binaries of nature and culture, human and non-human, subject and object, need to be reexamined not as the polar opposites in which they have been traditionally articulated, but as part of a larger complexity.

The Clute Institute, established in 1985, sponsors all Clute International Conferences to promote excellence in academic research.
In The Legacy of the Great War: Ninety Years On (2009), Jay Winter identifies four generations of critics, historians, novelists, and other cultural producers that engage with the representation of the First World War: “the Great War generation,” who had first-hand experience of the First World War; “the generation ‘fifty years on’,” writing in the 1950s and ‘60s; the “Vietnam generation,” working primarily in the 1970s; and the “transnational generation,” which broadly encompasses the more contemporary representations of the Great War. Winter adds that “everyone writing today draws upon or reflects upon earlier publications in this field,” speaking to the importance of intertextual and cross-generational analyses of the war.
