The interdisciplinary field of the environmental humanities offers new ways of considering tropical disasters.  Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis and similar incidents were once thought to be acts of God or isolated natural occurrences.  New eco-critical approaches to the field, however, challenge the separation between human activity and environmental events.

Over the past two decades, a preponderance of Man Booker Prize winning novels (and even short-listees) have restored to life vanished worlds, suggesting that the appeal of the past persists in contemporary Anglophone fiction. This roundtable seeks to showcase contemporary historical fiction written since 2000 in the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. If historical novels represent sites of contested memory or cultural trauma, then which critical junctures do these recent novels depict? Possible areas of exploration might include wartime novels post-Pat Barker, the evolution of neo-Victorianism, the roles of pastiche and parody, the status of historical metafiction, and the new directions taken by novels from the Antipodes.

In an age in which the centripetal forces of multilateralism are being challenged by the centrifugal pressures of populism, nationalist agitation and the rediscovery of indigenous forms of collective identity, what exactly is nationhood?

Once defined as the enhanced awareness of one's exclusive nationhood, and laden with associated emotional impulses of pride and belonging, conventional ideas of nationhood are being challenged as never before.

The term ‘generation’ has played a formative role in literary histories of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to articulate notions of evolution, rupture, and continuity. Its use is, however, not uncontested and has been the subject of intense scholarly scrutiny in literary studies and cultural memory studies over the last two decades. As Astrid Erll has noted, the concept of ‘generation’ is marked by two dimensions: generationality and genealogy. The first term indicates how generations define themselves or are defined on the basis of a shared ‘space of experience’ (Koselleck); the second term points at the relation generations maintain to what or who precedes them.
