Western States Rhetoric and Literacy Conference http://www.public.asu.edu/~petergo/wsrl/wsrl.html

For the 2013 Western States and Literacy Conference, we turn our attention to the field's ongoing exploration of rhetoric and literacy as material practices. In addition to traditional understandings of rhetoric and literacy as symbolic activity between human actors, the field has begun to consider human and nonhuman bodies, animality, technology, and matter not simply as backdrops for human activity but as contributors to persuasion, communication, and pedagogy.

One World, One Speed? Globalization, Neoliberalism, and the Nation (MLA 2014, Chicago)

Juan Meneses

Our lives seem to be marked by the fact that the neoliberal clock can be heard ticking throughout the planet as it sets the pace of globalization. Paul Virilio, for instance, has argued that "what is being effectively globalized by instantaneity is time. Everything now happens within the perspective of real time: henceforth we are deemed to live in a 'one-time-system.'" Yet it also seems that globalization advances with different intensities throughout the world, contributing to what could be called a "heterogeneous synchronicity." This proposed special panel seeks papers that investigate specific locales where neoliberalism advances at a different speed with respect to the rest of the world.

From "A" like Aquagirl to "Z" like Zatana. More than 200 female superheroes have been around for the last 70 years. It all started with Fletcher Hanks's minor character Fantomah in the 1940s Fiction House's Jungle Comics #2 and from that moment on the seal was broken. Female superhero after superhero made their appearances on paper as well as on screen. These female superheroes were simultaneously shaping and mirroring society; with the rise of second wave feminism some of these female characters changed as well. Suddenly, they could be more self-assured and more forceful; Marvel Girl transformed from an average superhero to the very powerful Phoenix. Later on, the years 2010/2011 witnessed a huge transformation in the graphic novels realms.
