Grand Valley State University is pleased to host Shakespeare Connects, October 2-3, 2009. This conference seeks to integrate aspects of Shakespeare scholarship and performance by bringing together a unique dynamic of Shakespeare scholars, practitioners, and educators. Through the integration of these dynamics, we hope to create a unique learning environment that will enrich our understanding of Shakespearean scholarship and performance.

Due to the wonderful response, our Editorial Board is now complete and we are suspending our call for Board members at this time.
The last decade has seen a surge of scholarship on the history of mental states in the eighteenth century, including boredom, happiness, curiosity, and grief. Building on this growing interest in modes of mind, as well as recent developments in cognitive approaches to literature, media studies, and the history of the book, this panel investigates the paired states of mind, attention and distraction. In this session, we would like to bring together scholars from disciplines such as music, drama, history of science, philosophy, literature, and art to explore eighteenth-century theories of attention and distraction through a variety of genres (e.g. philosophical treatises, newspaper advertisements, sermons, plays, scientific displays, works of art).

During the colonial period of the New World J. Michael Dash tells us that European colonizers viewed the Americas as a "New Eden" where civilization could be created anew. In terms of motherhood the colonial period in the Americas created a binary relationship between the races where the 19th century "Angel in the House" conflicted with the reality of motherhood and maternity for African slaves. After emancipation and decolonization while the ideal of the Americas as a New Eden has waned, the binary opposition in racialized views of motherhood has undergone various manifestations. How then does the modern era view motherhood in the Americas?
