Interface 2013: Creative and Critical Approaches in the Digital Humanities
Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
May 3-5, 2013

The digital humanities explores how emerging digital forms of scholarly inquiry and new ways to assess and to organize knowledge transform the creative and critical methods humanities scholars use to approach their objects of study. Thoughtful in play, interdisciplinary in engagement, utopian in spirit, transformational in intent, digital humanists "imagine new couplings and scalings that are facilitated both by new models of research practice and by the availability of new tools and technologies" (The Digital Humanities Manifesto 2.0).

This more comprehensive framework, constructing North/South and transamericanist paradigms, ambitions to revisit such topics from interdisciplinary and intercultural perspectives. Beyond traditional oppositions and stereotypes, we invite contributions which question permanence and change in the role and status of women in the Americas.

CFP: Literature and Pornography, March 17, 2013

LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory

The dust may have begun to settle in the blogosphere, but M. L. James's Fifty Shades of Gray novels continue to dominate the bestseller list, impervious to the literary outrage that greeted their remarkable success. In the wake of this phenomenon, LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory invites essays on literary works that flirt with, dabble in, or wholly embrace the pornographic. We are interested in scholarly engagements with the history, theory, and politics of pornography, as well as studies of the popularity, reception, censorship, and "literariness" of texts considered pornographic.
