Ever since the publication of Appadurai's groundbreaking study Modernity at Large (1996), concepts like "multiculturalism", "globalisation" and, more recently, "cosmopolitanism" have contributed to raise questions about the future of Postcolonial Studies – opening up to issues of "canon expansion" and "rerouting", among others (Madsen 1999; Wilson et al. 2010). From a somewhat counter-perspective, attempts at turning Europe itself into a highly problematic region of postcolonial analysis have also been made.
The term "incorporated art" might be used to describe art that exists in the form of an institution, company, or other organization. In contrast with art that takes incorporation as its subject, incorporated art begins with the act of incorporation and exists only to the extent that the incorporated entity remains in operation.

Twentieth- and twenty-first century British writers have evinced an overwhelming interest in depicting communal cooking scenes, unsavory solitary meals, lavish dinners with family members, struggles with eating disorders, and WWII rationing in their works. Recent literary studies and articles focusing on food and gender, food and cultural identity, food and social class, and food and children's literature attest to this burgeoning critical interest. This panel seeks proposals for papers that explore the intersections between food and socialization in the twentieth- and/or twenty-first century British novel, short story, poem, and/or play.
The Medieval and Early Modern English Studies Association of Korea and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Seoul National University will co-host an international conference under the title of "Imagining Magic and Witchcraft in Medieval and Early Modern Literature." In medieval and early modern society, magic and witchcraft provided sources of popular and literary imagination and objects of both sheer fascination and collective anxiety, as well as pretexts for political and religious persecution. They also marked the frontier of scientific inquiry and human understanding. Imagining magic and witchcraft was an attempt to map the unmappable—the supernatural, the unknown, and the prohibited.
