The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.

Sociology and Anthropology
Examining time and space as anything but concrete and singular, Elizabeth Grosz states that they “are in some sense correlated with representations of the subject” (99). Such a conception associates spatio-temporal location with subjectivity, and to some extent, embodiment and corporeality. Space becomes about more than physical conceptualizations—such as land, location, or locality, or more specifically Earth, land, nation, city, or home—and comes to include broader, more metaphorical, notions such as the space within body and mind, as well as narrative space.
Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.
Many of the finest poets in America and abroad have been exposing the destructive relationships between humans and nature and reimagining our place on the planet to help us avoid catastrophe. As environmental writer John Nichols once stated, "To save the world, first we must love it.” This virtual (online) session on ecopoetics aims to inspire and cultivate such a love. We particularly welcome scholars and poets who explore the natural world as a text and the literary achievement of great nature writers as exemplary readers. Works by Adrienne Rich, Gary Snyder, Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Pablo Neruda, including original poems or translations, such as Merwin’s translations of Jean Follain, are encouraged.
We invite proposals for this virtual (online) session exploring any aspect of Afro-Asian coalition-building projects in literary or cultural studies, with interest in engaging across cross-racial, interracial, or interminority studies bridging Black and Asian cultures and values. The tension and conflicts of interminority in the US, especially the Black-Asian conflicts, have been a big issue… but is it really the issue between the two communities only? Afro-Asian solidarity means a lot to both Black and Asian groups as their coalition, connection, allyship, and understanding have been undermined for decades, for many reasons, but here we gather to call out to say the Afro-Asian solidarity is revolutionary.

Reading into Murder: interpretative essays on select cult texts.
This symposium explores North American Indigenous intellectual and narrative traditions that were recovered, reclaimed, or (re-)invented in the wake of Red Power movements that emerged in the 1960s in the settler colonial societies of Canada and the USA. It asks: which new perspectives and visions have been developed over the last 50 years within Indigenous studies and related fields when looking at Indigenous land and land rights, Indigenous political and social sovereignty, extractivism and environmental destruction, oppressive sex/gender systems, and for describing the repercussions of settler colonialism in North America, especially in narrative representations?
