This special issue of EJES (http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/titles/13825577.asp) addresses the dislocation of bodies (human and non-human), concepts, cultures, and goods across borders of various kinds not just in relation to notions of mobility, but with special attention to their interaction with their surrounding environments.
This NeMLA conference panel aims to address aspects of 1930s French cinema that have been excluded from the canonical focus on "poetic realism" and its concomitant themes, stars, and filmmakers. Studies of French cinema tend to view poetic realism as somehow emblematic of the period bookended by the arrival of synchronized sound and the outbreak of war. However, this narrow perspective belies the diversity of the cinematic experience in France during the 1930s, which included many filmmakers, stars, genres, and themes that have since been left out of critical and historical assessments of this period. Such films range from the unknown to the known (but infrequently examined), and they include financial successes along with box-office duds.

Welcome to the Childhood Session of ABWFA Interdisciplinary Conferences. It is within this area that discussions concerning the creativity of educating children, curriculum teaching methods, teaching children life skills, personality development in children, philosophy, and cultural thinking are expected to develop.
Some areas of concern are:
I am again seeking submissions for the Nabokov panel at the Literature Since 1900 conference from February 24 – 26, 2011 in Louisville, KY. This is a wonderful, friendly conference held on the U of L campus in a great Midwestern city. I have attended many times, and am happy to talk more off-list about the conference if you have questions.
Although the topic is "open", I'd like to select papers that share some connections to better facilitate post-presentation discussion. One area I am interested in is Nabokov and the law, but that's just one idea, which comes from my research addressing law enforcement writing and technical communication. If you would like to talk more about topic ideas, please email me off-list.
