Samuel Hynes identifies the Great War as "the great imaginative event": "not a falsification of reality, but […] the accepted interpretation of the war, repeated in texts written by authors who did not experience the war, but who inherited its myth." With the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War just behind us, and the bicentenary of the end of the Napoleonic Wars just ahead, this panel explores the ways in which the 'great wars' of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries are (re)interpreted and (re)imagined, both by their contemporaries and, perhaps more pressingly, by ours.
Mediating the Sacred and Secular in the Medieval and Early Modern period - deadline Nov. 15
University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
February 20-21, 2015
The Early Modern Colloquium, a graduate interdisciplinary group at the University of Michigan, is seeking submissions for its conference on the conceptualizations of the sacred and secular during the Medieval and Early Modern periods. This conference will engage with issues of periodicity through questions of secular versus sacred authority both during and between these eras. More specifically, it will investigate particular literary representations that negotiate and mediate the divide of the sacred and the secular in Medieval and Early Modern Europe.

Space and Place in World Literature

Presenters are encouraged to explore the panel's theme using a variety of methodological approaches, situating the work both within global and national contexts. Specific areas might include:

ASECS 2015: Landscape and Sensory Perception - Roundtable Discussion
This roundtable looks to examine the pains and joys of teaching in the online classroom. There has been a rise in the quantity of online degree programs, but has the quality gone with it? Let's look at what educators could and should be doing to reach out to students that choose this medium for their education. In return, what possible online classroom staples and lessons could be used and brought into the face-to-face classroom as well?
The conference is through the Northeast Modern Language Association and will take place April 30 - May 3, 2015 in Toronto, Canada.
Submissions are due: September 30, 2014.

We invite paper proposals for a panel the H.D. International Society is organizing at the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 26-28, 2015, hosted each year by the University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. The focus of the panel, "New Approaches to H.D." is open-ended, and we will consider work focusing on any aspect of H.D. and/or her circle, although the interdisciplinary emphasis of the conference (which expressly embraces literature's relationship to other arts and disciplines) means that an interdisciplinary angle might be especially appropriate.
