To be announced
"Purity is the power to contemplate defilement." – Simone Weil
"Purity is a negative state and therefore contrary to nature." – William Faulkner
"Throughout human history, the apostles of purity, those who have claimed to possess a total explanation, have wrought havoc among mere mixed-up human beings." – Salman Rushdie
PURITY is a division, a concept, a value-system, a fallacy, an ideal state, a doctrine, a transfer. It marks the territories of sex and contamination, mathematics and martyrdom, economy and resistance, music and annihilation.

Announcement of Publication and Call for Submissions
We are pleased to announce the establishment of a new journal, Age, Culture, Humanities, published by the Atheneum Press of Coastal Carolina University.
Age, Culture, Humanities seeks to promote cross-disciplinary, critical investigations of the experiences of age, aging, and old age, as seen through the lens of the humanities and arts. The goals are to consider age as a category of identity, advance understanding of the aging process and of age differences across the lifespan, interrogate cultural articulations of aging and old age, and generate innovative, engaging scholarly approaches to the study of age and aging in the humanities.
This panel considers the writings of W.E.B. Du Bois, as discussions commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of his death in 2013 take place internationally. For Du Bois, abolition (often neglected in narratives of the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation) persists as an exemplar of an ethics of collective dissent: a "moral battle" that "cannot be truthfully minimized or forgotten." C.L.R. James, Toni Morrison, and Angela Davis (through Black Reconstruction) also draw upon the specter of abolitionism for an ongoing practice of dissent.
Looking for papers dealing with menstruation in postcolonial literature for a proposed panel. Please email with abstract, title, and bio information by December 24 for consideration.
