As Steven Yao observes in *Translation and the Languages of Modernism,* both the practice and the idea of translation were integral to experimental early twentieth-century modernist work in English: "feats of translation not only accompanied and helped to give rise to, but sometimes even themselves constituted, some of the most significant Modernist literary achievements in English." And in their translation work, many anglophone modernists were especially responsive to the literatures of Ancient Greece and Rome. As H.D. would note of the work of Euripides, "these words are to me portals, gates."

Indigenous communities offer models of collective sustainability, territorial sovereignty, ecological justice, and cultural persistence keenly appealing to a world threatened by environmental rapine and ideological warfare. The Eighth Annual Charles Town International Maroon Conference aims at nothing less than building a global indigenous community without borders. Legacy of the recently deceased Colonel Frank Lumsden, leader of the Charles Town Maroons, this vision of global unity among geographically distinct yet politically allied indigenous communities advances an alternative to global woes that combines transnational commonality with cultural specificity and political purpose.
The Steering Committee of BWWC 2016 will be accepting proposals until 1/15/2016. Please find our original CFP online at https://bwwc2016.wordpress.com/call-for-papers/.

UNApocalypse: Exploring Dystopianism in Texts
We welcome proposals for our upcoming Conference 6-8 October 2016, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The proposal should focus on the artist's use of science in literature, whether physical, biological, or medical. For example, Dante utilized many aspects of medieval optical physics in the creation of his "Paradiso." William Carlos Williams, used his education as a physician to create his works of poetry. Science and Art possess a deep connection that extends through centuries. This is your opportunity to reveal this symbiotic relationship to others. Please submit your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 1 March 2016. We look forward to hearing from you.
Talks on any aspect of the session topic are welcome: models, tips, strategies for teaching literature (English, American, world, other). Come share what's working in your classroom. This is a fun panel with great energy and enthusiasm.
Please send a 250 word proposal and a brief bio by March 1 to Monica Hart at email@example.com.

The Gender, Translocality and the City Research Group at the University of Debrecen is pleased to announce its first annual workshop, which is going to explore the intersections of gender, location and emotion in post-1945 literary and visual texts. The primary aim of the workshop is to investigate the production of metropolitan spaces in a comparative theoretical framework, focusing on iconic cities such as London, New York, Budapest, Berlin, among other locations. The main theoretical questions we intend to address are the following: what is the role of literature in mapping the intersection of emotion and contemporary urban spatialities?
