Keynotes: Doctor Holly Furneaux and Professor Joanne Bailey.

To commemorate the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo and the lasting impact of the Napoleonic Wars upon the history of militarism, submissions are welcomed for 'Military Masculinities in the Long Nineteenth Century', an interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Hull on the 20th and 21st May 2015. We welcome papers from scholars across the humanities on the topic of nineteenth-century 'military' manliness. The conference will encompass a range of themes relating to notions of gender, war and empire, exploring the ways in which nineteenth-century society responded and reacted to ideas of militarism and mobilised manhood.

Natures 2015: Seventh Annual Interdisciplinary Humanities Conference

Natures 2015: Reading the Books of Nature
Authors and artists, from Galileo to Rousseau, Woolfe to Kingsolver, Attenborough to Cousteau, have been exploring how to read or record nature for thousands of years. We seek papers that continue this quest in the context of any genre, time period, or discipline within the humanities. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
• A particular character's or author's way or reading or misreading nature, speaking to or speaking against nature.
• Representations of nature as pitifully silenced victim, ominously silent threat, or speaking agent.
• Linking or de-linking nature with books, reading, or writing.
• The 'book of nature' as a parallel to, or competitor with, sacred texts.

Missed Connections

A missed connection is an attempt to reach out to a stranger whom one has encountered in the past, often with the hope of establishing an emotional or physical contact. At its core is a search for a new beginning or, at least, the potential of a closure.

Literature offers countless examples of missed connections: desperate lovers and failed revenge, comedies of errors and Kafkaesque scenarios, cultural gaps, open endings and unfinished novels. These unfulfilled encounters are never concretized, yet they can be sources of inspiration for writers for whom absence is a productive condition.
