This Symposium aims to explore the complex and contested relationship between Trauma Studies and postcolonial theory, focusing on the possibilities for creating a decolonized trauma theory that takes account of the suffering of minority groups and non-Western cultures, broadly defined as cultures beyond Western Europe and North America. Our symposium will build on the insights of, inter alia, Stef Craps's book, Postcolonial Witnessing, and will respond to his challenge to interrogate and move beyond a Eurocentric trauma paradigm.
Urban Outcasts in South Asian Literature: SECOND CALL

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: JANUARY 23, 2015.
Keynote Speaker: Ulrich Baer (NYU)
The image of the river in Latin/o American literature has been multiple and varied. The slow, meandering streams of nostalgia, the raging currents of conflict or the stagnant waters of social decay are just a few of the ways in which the river has become a potent symbol and inspiration to many of the region's writers.

Guest Edited by Alison Lacivita
For our autumnal scholarly issue, we are interested in papers exploring pedagogical approaches to teaching sustainability, ecocriticsm, ecopoetics, and greening the humanities.
We are also interested in book reviews of pedagogical books and edited collections. We can generally provide a review copy. If one is needed, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Lehigh Valley Vanguard is seeking submissions of critical prose which showcase community-oriented and/or activist work that provides social commentary on diverse dimensions of human suffering, such as poverty, marginalization, racism, and political, structural, and gender-based violence. Those accepted will be published in our open-access online journal.
Submissions may take a variety of approaches to this topic: historical, polemical, examination of literary works, book reviews.
We - an international group of students enrolled in the MA Global History at Free University Berlin - would like to inform You about a conference in Global History for bachelor and graduate students, April 24-25 in Berlin. (We will be able to cover some travel and accommodation expenses.) Our idea is to provide a venue for ambitious students to spread and discuss their projects with a larger audience. This conference presents a very good opportunity to broaden perspectives ahead of future challenges. We accept texts written in English, Spanish, French and Italian, and the discussions will be held in English.
