Fashion and Photography: An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Conference
29th to 30th June 2018
We are currently accepting proposals for papers and presentations to be featured at an exciting new Fashion and Photography Event in Palermo, Sicily, June 2018. Italy has a long-standing and highly valued history of fashion, and a highly developed fashion sense. Sicily is home to a number of internationally famous fashion designers such as Stefano Gabbana (of Dolce and Gabbana) and Arcangela Aiello, and Palermo is the heart of the island. We are excited to host our event there.
2nd Global Conference: Music &... Nationalism
29th to 30th June 2018
The spectre of national anthems being sung at mass events, political rallies and the use of pop music and established musicians providing endorsements at political rallies suggest that the relationship between music and the spirit nationalism is as strong as it has been since its emergence as a feature of 19th century romantic music. This conference aims to bring together interdisciplinary research perspectives on the relationship between music and nationalism.

The fifth annual British Association for Holocaust Studies Conference invites scholars, educators and practitioners to submit papers on any aspect of Holocaust studies. Papers should relate to any current debates or developments in the field, and submissions are welcome from across disciplines. The BAHS conference is an opportunity for scholars and educators to engage in dialogue, and to acknowledge their shared project of promoting understanding of the Holocaust. As such we are interested in submissions of papers or workshops from practitioners involved in any aspect of Holocaust education or representation. Submissions from PhD students and early career scholars are especially welcome.

The Faculty of Foreign Languages (Alfa BK University in Belgrade) is glad to announce its Seventh International Conference on Language and Literary Studies, which will be held on 18–19 May 2018.
For the seventh issue of our annual conference, we hope to gather academics and professionals whose research focuses on and contributes to the conference topic:
LANGUAGE, LITERATURE, AND EMOTIONS
Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds. As a result, modern authors refer to the coagulating ferment of the metropolis for characters undergoing a formative change, while more numerous voices later investigated the opposite, the fragmenting if not destructive impact on both individuals and the social groups they belong to.
The Martineau Society will be hosting its annual conference in London, England. The Martineau Society conference is an interdisciplinary conference that focuses on the lives, work, and contributions of the Martineau family, including its two most famous and influential members, Harriet Martineau (1802-1876) and James Martineau (1805-1900).
Started by Norwich Unitarians in 1994, the Martineau Society encourages scholarship on the Martineau family and their nineteenth-century context as well as their continuing influence.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Theology and Religion
Literature (all genres, including Children’s Literature and Travel Writing)
Language and Linguistics
