International Conference on Ecocriticism and Environmental Studies 19 October 2019 – London, UKorganised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary ResearchMultiple environmental crises are increasingly inescapable at both transnational and local levels and the role of the humanities in addition to technology and politics is more and more recognized as central for exploring and finding solutions.
International Conference on London Studies23 November 2019 – London, UKorganised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
Since its beginnings, London has been regarded as the epitome of progress and advancement even in times of profound crisis and discord, exerting the charm of the vast setting that concentrates most, if not all, human experiences. From ancient Londinium to the 21st-century metropolis, the ever expanding urban settlement has emerged as a complex heterogeneous entity forging a particular code of conduct governed by imagination and originality, talent and vision that generate almost endless significations of the self.
We now invite proposals for 20 minute-papers or performative presentations (e.g. poster presentations, show-and-tell etc.) for a one-day symposium on the theme“Classroom Acts: performativity, identity and the emergence of new communities in German language teaching.” The event will be held at the Modern Language Centre at King's College London on Saturday 14th September 2019 and is primarily aimed at teachers of German as a Foreign Language in Higher Education and lecturers in German Studies or Theatre Studies. We also invite submissions from researchers and teachers specialising in related fields, provided the topic is transferable to German language teaching and/or German Studies.

Special Feature Section: “American Studies in the Archive”
The New Americanist seeks articles for its fourth issue’s special feature section “American Studies in the Archive.” Articles whose framework largely depends on archival materials, or which theorize the role of the archive – either historically or in current practice – will be considered. Special consideration will be given to articles which take race, transnational, LGBTQ, or disability studies approaches.
The Australian Women’s History Network
The Australian Women’s History Network 2019 Symposium will focus on the female frame and contemporary approaches to wellbeing in local and global perspective.
We use the phrase “female frame” as a catalyst for discussion on the way bodies are socially constructed and gendered. Our focus stretches from the individual subject to the national body, and we place these bodies alongside biopolitics and wellbeing to open a conversation around legacy and impact.
This session examines the relationship between religion and American literature. In particular, it welcomes papers that explore the topic of theodicy in contemporary American literature. How have the events following 9/11, and the developments in post-secular and trauma studies made the question of theodicy a more vital, urgent topic in our contemporary moment? How has 9/11 transformed the ways in which Americans think about the problem of evil? How has this event and other acts of terror influenced our cultural imaginations of suffering and death? How have contemporary American writers contributed to the conversations about the presence or absence of God in suffering?

Deadline for Submissions: 5 January 2020
2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of a historical period that arguably came to a close with the deaths at the Altamont Free Concert in 1969. The era of the hippie, or flower-power, or peace-and-love, has shaped our current times like few if any periods of such short duration.
