According to Terry Eagleton, English as a discipline was installed in England's universities to take up the slack when, in the 19-century, religion stopped providing the ideological glue required for social cohesion. Today there are increasing signs that, with its traditional emphasis on literature, English is going the way of religion as an agent of cohesion and unity. The question, not only of the future of English, but of the humanities as well, looms large.

When we think of translation skills we tend to think first of linguistic expertise, then perhaps of subject expertise (e.g. telecommunications, music, medicine, law). It is too often forgotten that central to the translator's skill set is the ability to write. This conference will explore the interfaces between subject expertise, writing and translation. These might include but are not limited to:
We invite brief and fast submissions for a book to be published next month. Much in the style of the American FACTS ON FILE, we are seeking essays for Graduate and Post-Graduate students on the following topics:
This is a call for contributors for a panel being proposed for the 2009 Modern Language Association Convention, to be held in Philadelphia in December 2009; I am also planning to put together an edited collection on the same topic, so any abstracts that are submitted for the MLA panel will also be considered for the proposed volume. I am interested in any proposals that approach the subject, dealing with texts old or new (from Ottoman literature to contemporary work) in any genre.

Ravenna is an interdisciplinary bilingual journal dedicated to the relationship between the British Decadent movement and Italy. Its aim is that of bringing together scholarly material devoted to the analysis of those British authors and artists whose lives and works were influenced by Italian art, its soil, people, history, its clime and light, its echoes. And vice versa. The choice of Ravenna as a title is a statement of intent. Oscar Wilde's poem, his first major work, is a crucible of all of these elements. Within the city's ancient walls, "where Dante sleeps, where Byron loved to dwell", Wilde watches the "turquoise sky" turning to "burning gold", the colours of the Ravenna mosaic we have chosen as background for the journal.
