This session invites submissions for twenty-minute, scholarly presentations on any aspect of John Milton. Especially welcome are proposals addressing the conference theme, “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.” From Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost to Satan and Jesus in Paradise Regain’d to the Lady and Comus in A Masque, Milton encouraged readers to think power, identity, and relationships in many forms and in many contexts. What might these intersections of power, identity, and relationship reveal to us about Milton as a poet and political activist? By Friday, May 25, please submit an abstract of 200 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to Dr.

Tourism Security Safety And Post Conflict Destinations
Since the turn of the century, the international rules surrounding security and safety have significantly changed, specifically within the tourism industry. In the age of globalization, terrorism and conflict have moved beyond individual high-profile targets; instead, tourists, travellers and journalists are at risk. In response to this shift, the series invites authors and scholars to contribute to the conversation surrounding tourism security and post-conflict destinations. This call invites potential authors to present their book proposal revolving around tourism secuity and post conflict destinations.
