Call for abstracts: NEMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association annula convention https://nemla.org/index.html 2015 Ryerson University 30 April to 3 May 2015 Panel "Digital Humanities and Publishing Humanities Scholarship Today." Participants in the panel discuss digital humanities from various perspectives relevant to the publishing of humanities scholarship. Owing to the current situation worldwide whereby fewer students are interested in literature and culture, digital humanities has promise for the social relevance of the humanities insofar as content is linked with practice and pedagogy including technical matters. Please submit abstracts by 30 September 2014 to https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html on any aspect of digital humanities and digital publishing including the electronic publishing of journals and ebooks. Following double-blind peer review, selected papers from the panel are planned to be  published in CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture (AHCI, etc., indexed).

Call for papers for a major conference

Being Modern: Science and Culture in the early 20th century
Institute of Historical Research, London 22-24 April 2015

Engagement with science was commonly used as an emblem of "Being
modern", across culture in Britain and the western world in the years
around the First World War. Today, historical studies of literature,
art, design, lifestyle and consumption as well as of the human sciences
are exploring intensively, but frequently separately, on that talk of
"science". Historians of science are exploring the interpenetration of
discourse in the public sphere and expert communities. This pioneering
interdisciplinary conference is therefore planned to bring together
people who do not normally meet in the same space. Scholars from a range
of disciplines will come together to explore how the complex
interpretations of science affected the re-creation of what it was to be
modern.

Please see the website for more details:
