The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities
Research invites abstracts that address the
relationship of visual culture to other forms of human
expression and thought. Presentations may address
aspects of image production and image reception in the
humanities, whether the image be printed, projected,
digitized, rendered artistically, imagined, or
destroyed. Topics may include exploration of pictorial
as opposed to written or oral expression; the ways in
which images may fill interstices in language, music,
and thought; the centrality of different forms of
picture making in human history, society, and culture.
We encourage papers that range across the spectrum

Religion and Gender in the Early Modern Period:

This is a call for papers for a book-length collection of essays that brings
into dialogue male and female voices on the question of gender and religion
in the literature, visual arts, religious writings, and culture of the late
medieval and early modern period. We are interested in treatments of
authors who directly or indirectly engage one another in debate, but we are
also interested in bringing into dialogue by their juxtaposition in this
collection male and female voices of authors who may not necessarily have
known of each other's work but who nonetheless seem to "speak" to one
another.

CFP: Digital Citizenship: Technology, Documentation, and the Divide
Editors: Adrienne Lamberti and Anne R. Richards

The practical and ethical responsibilities of professional communicators
have been greatly complicated by the digital divide. Because of the
increasing reliance on new media to convey information previously conveyed
in print, critical inquiry into the accessibility and usability of digital
documentation is needed.

Women Writing Nature: A Feminist View

Rachel Carson, writer, scientist, and ecologist, became famous as a naturalist and science writer for the public. Embedded in her early works was the view that human beings were but one part of nature distinguished primarily by their power to alter it, in some cases irreversibly. With the 1962 publication of Silent Spring, she challenged the practices of agricultural scientists and the government, and called for a change in the way humankind viewed the natural world.
