The fifth annual British Association for Holocaust Studies Conference invites scholars, educators and practitioners to submit papers on any aspect of Holocaust studies. Papers should relate to any current debates or developments in the field, and submissions are welcome from across disciplines. The BAHS conference is an opportunity for scholars and educators to engage in dialogue, and to acknowledge their shared project of promoting understanding of the Holocaust. As such we are interested in submissions of papers or workshops from practitioners involved in any aspect of Holocaust education or representation. Submissions from PhD students and early career scholars are especially welcome.

How do we right wrongs? And how do we write these wrongs?
Similar to narratives of the traditional, purely verbal format, topics of comics and graphic novels can range from purely fictional stories to accounts that make extensive truth claims. Graphic memoirs are probably the most discussed genre on the non-fictional–or at least not exclusively fictional–end of this spectrum. In fact, when we think of Spiegelman’s Maus which is often hailed as one of the first graphic novels, non-fictionality or semi-fictionality is central to this increasingly popular format.

In honor of the 2018 conference guest, Reyhan Şahin, PhD (aka Lady Bitch Ray), this panel welcomes papers that analyze and theorize intersectional feminism and feminist activism in popular culture in any medium within the German-speaking world and beyond. The panel will address new theories and analyze practices and performances within the rapidly changing contemporary political landscape. Possible questions include:
• How do performers/activists/theorists engage with self-staging, particularly regarding race/ethnicity, nationality/citizenship status, religious identity, gender identity, sexual orientation, queerness, and ability?
Following the economic development of the mid-nineteenth century, writers and journalists increasingly focused on urban contexts and the experience of protagonists moving from rural to urban backgrounds. As a result, modern authors refer to the coagulating ferment of the metropolis for characters undergoing a formative change, while more numerous voices later investigated the opposite, the fragmenting if not destructive impact on both individuals and the social groups they belong to.

American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference--May 24-28, 2018--San Francisco, California
"Embodiment and Charlotte Perkins Gilman"
The Society for Contemporary Literature (SCL) is a group dedicated to the study of literature of the last 25 years. SCL seeks, for ALA 2018 in San Francisco, papers that explore the intersection of truth telling and literary art in 21st-century American literature. As pressing concerns about real politics, justice, and representation loom large in the culture, and as Common Core standards actively encourage K-12 teachers to engage fiction a bit less and nonfiction a bit more, a clear and contemporary discourse on how literary art modulates and indwells all kinds of expression is becoming more and more necessary to scholars and teachers of literature.

The Velvet Light Trap Issue 83 - Politics of Space and Place
At the outset of Space and Place: The Perspective of Experience, Yi-Fu Tuan observes, "Space and place are basic components of the lived world; we take them for granted. When we think about them, however, they may assume unexpected meanings and raise questions we have not thought to ask." Power relations are often negotiated through space and embedded in place, and these dynamics resonate through and within media. As such, media studies stands to offer an important contribution to the critical study of space and place, just as this important area of study may help us to reorient and reimagine foundational premises and concerns within our field.
