*NOTE*: The submission date has been moved back to December 15, 2012.

At the turn of the 20th century, Ezra Pound declared the need to "make it new." His call inspired numerous artists, creators, critics, and theorists to push the boundaries of their fields, to discover and invent original forms and technologies, to develop new modes of thinking about ourselves and our worlds—in short, to innovate. Nationally, this translated to the renovation of cities and borders and significant innovations in travel and technology. In the academy, scholars reconceptualized disciplines and established new canons, methodologies, and theoretical models. The drive to innovate to make things new is one of the 20th century's most noted legacies.

CFP: Spectral Spaces and Hauntings (anthology) (abstract submission by 29 March, 2013)

CALL FOR PAPERS: Spectral Spaces and Hauntings (anthology)
Edited by Christina Lee

"We moderns, despite our mechanistic and rationalistic ethos, live in landscapes filled with ghosts." (Michael Bell, 1997: 813)

We are soliciting contributions for an anthology which will explore the spectral quality of space. The language of 'hauntings' will be implemented to unpack how absence, emptiness and the imperceptible can signify an overwhelming presence of something (that once was, and still is) there. A major premise of the book is that space is constituted of both physical terrain and psychological landscapes that are infused with memory and history. As such, places are always ambivalent.

CONFERENCE THEME: "Connectedness and Alienation: The 21st Century Enigma"
Being connected through social networking sites has become an accepted form of communication in today's digitalized world. People can spend hours a day talking on mobile phones, on Skype, or on the Internet, which gives the impression that we are a more connected world than ever before. And communication is lauded. Because of the massive information flow we can call ourselves perhaps the most connected age in history. But is this connectedness, however, real or illusory?
