This is to announce "The Alchemy Issue" of Pataphysica, journal
of a certain science. A symbolic science of imaginary
solutions, alchemy is a branch of pataphysics, the "science of
sciences" founded by Alfred Jarry (1873-1907). Jarry's own work
is steeped in alchemical allusions, from (among many other
instances) his 1894 exhortation to "study conjunctions!"
("Visions Present and Future"); to his 1898 "neo-scientific"
novel Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, pataphysician,
where the evicting locksmith, Mr. Lourdeau, resides at "205 rue
Nicolas Flamel" (Flamel was a legendary 14th century alchemist);
to his 1899 "Automovable Feast" in Père Ubu's Illustrated

Asian Gothic Literature (extended deadline)

I am extending the deadline for the solicitation of abstracts on Asian
Gothic Literature until the last day of February 2004. I would like to
encourage work on Asian literature with strong Gothic flavour outside
Japanese literature as this seems to be predominating at the moment.
Thanks.
Please send all abstracts to: ng.hock.soon_at_engsci.monash.edu.my and
address it to Andrew Ng.

The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the “state of emergency” in
which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a
conception of history that is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall
clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency.

Material Religion: The Journal of Images, Objects, and Belief
A new journal from Berg Publishers, Oxford

Material Religion seeks to explore how religion happens in material
culture – images, devotional and liturgical objects, architecture and
sacred space, works of art and mass-produced artifacts. No less
important than these material forms are the many different practices
that put them to work. Ritual, communication, ceremony, instruction,
meditation, propaganda, pilgrimage, display, magic, liturgy and
interpretation constitute many of the practices whereby religious
material culture constructs the worlds of belief.
