CFP: [Graduate] 22nd Annual GAFIS Symposium: (Un)Marked: Intersection of the Universal and Particular

The Graduate Association of French and Italian Students
is pleased to announce the 22nd Annual

GAFIS Symposium
Un)Marked:Intersection of the Universal and the Particular

April 3-4, 2009
University of Wisconsin-Madison

What lies at the intersection of the universal and the particular?

Culture--a phenomenon that is simultaneously universal and particular,
unmarked and marked.

Culture permeates all human interaction: every human society has a culture,
a language, a literature, a song, a dance, an art. Yet each culture is
simultaneously highly particular, unique, unlike the others.

Call For Papers: The Future of Politics & Media
Movement 1.2
 
In this historic presidential election, the interactions between media and
politics were as symbiotic as they perhaps have ever been. However,
virtually all interactions between the two can be seen as all three of the
biological types of symbiosis at once â€" mutualastic, parasitic, or
commensal. With various new media outlets and new movements in global,
national, and local politics, there is much work to be done on the most
effective ways to think about these interactions. The future of politics
and media is the subject of Issue 1.2 of Movement. Some potential questions:

Interrogation Techniques: Law, Texts, Culture
Simon Fraser University English Graduate Conference, May 29-30, 2009

This interdisciplinary conference will interrogate the role of the law in
the production, content, dissemination, and critical reception of texts.
The relationship between legal and other discourses affects how cultures
and individuals perceive the world, and act on that perception. Law,
literature, and society intersect in diverse forms, from the Ten
Commandments to the political role of the novel in Victorian England, from
vigilante justice in revenge tragedies to the establishment of the Creative
Commons online.

CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Special Issue of Clio: "Historicizing Disability"

updated: 
Thursday, November 20, 2008 - 4:10pm
Rachel Hile

Clio: A Journal of Literature, History, and the Philosophy of History, an
international triennial journal, publishes scholarly essays on three
interrelated topics:
• literature as informed by historical understandings
• historical writings considered as literature
• philosophy of history
Clio does not so much publish in three disciplines as it seeks essays that
are themselves interdisciplinary in their arguments. Our focus is
historiography, in reference to any time period and literatures. We do not
publish factual expositions of historical events or
uncontextualized "readings" of literary texts.
