In 1938, a group of British expatriates led by Albert Stephen Gispert, known as G or "our father G," founded the Hash House Harriers (H3) in Kuala Lumpur. Other than during WW II, the group has been in continuous existence for almost eighty years; the original Kuala Lumpur group, Mother Hash, still exists. The hash house harriers, "a drinking club with a running problem," is a unique blend of athleticism, sociability, and hedonism. Hashing has a rich and diverse history spanning the globe, and this anthology seeks to capture its impact on global culture.

Comics and Life: Illustration, Intersections, and Insights
Higher education and research in humanities and social sciences have a rich history of addressing complex societal issues. But today, with technological advancements and globalization, academia is changing rapidly. Interdisciplinary research is the way forward, promoting innovation and preparing scholars for the complexities of our modern world. The emerging field of comics studies exemplifies this approach by exploring diverse subjects through a unique lens. This evolution in academia reflects our need to adapt and find creative solutions to the multifaceted challenges we face.

Epistemologies of Disability
Postcolonial studies as a way of reclaiming history from the perspective of the colonised continues to uncover the myriad fraught legacies of colonialism. The emergence of newer interdisciplinary areas of inquiry, such as climate change, has further revealed tangled legacies of colonialism that continue to persist. The burgeoning field of postcolonial print culture studies, in turn, has been bringing to the fore a fascinating terrain of production, circulation and consumption of print in colonial contexts that is particularly enriching our knowledge of anticolonial resistance in various ways. This conference aims to bring together academic work in some of the newer sub-fields of postcolonial inquiry with attention to continuities.

Rhetoric After Identification
Edited by David R. Gruber (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) & Jason Kalin (DePaul University)
Rhetorical identification seeks a common ground of existence in which divided individuals can mediate their differences. Perhaps, for this reason, either explicitly or implicitly, identification has become a commonplace of rhetorical theory and criticism. As Diane Davis (2010) writes, “Identification is not simply rhetoric’s most fundamental aim; it’s also and therefore rhetorical theory’s most fundamental problem” (p. 33). Any rhetoric, it seems, must pass through rhetorical identification.
