The EEBO Introductions Series

This nascent resource seeks to use EEBO’s role as a hub for early
modernists in order to foster communication and co-ordination between
scholars in different departments and institutions. The aim of the Series
is to provide a space for scholars of early modern texts to draw the
attention of their colleagues to texts which they feel are neglected or
which need to be revisited. The first batch of ten Introductions has gone
online and can be viewed at:

The intros also appear as a link to the relevant texts in a search query.

This session is designed to explore the challenges, pitfalls, rewards,
etc. of teaching paleography, manuscript transcribing, and text-editing.
The focus is mainly pedagogical, but papers presenting some general
issues related to manuscript editing are welcome. Topics may include (but
are by no means limited to) the problems presented by the Piers Plowman
manuscript families, recognizing audiences, addressing the problem of
loci difficiles in a text, ascribing authorship, teaching the importance
of manuscript-reading to students (undergraduate and graduate), studying
marginalia, studying manuscript groupings and collections and their
significance (e.g. Cotton collection, Harley MS 2253 group, etc.),

CFP: Bernard Stiegler and the Question of Technics

"What has been neglected and repressed by cognitivism, as well as by
philosophy as a whole, going back to Plato's first gesture of thought, is
the place of technics in general in life, technics as the condition of life
that knows".

- Bernard Stiegler, "Desire and Knowledge: the Dead Seize the Living"

for once it becomes of full academic interest in Mexico, doors will become
wide open to deepen into the study of a style whose manifestations go
beyond time, culture and genre boundaries.

Nancy.Rubin_at_virgo.sas.upenn.edu,

The Journal of Literacy and Technology calls for submissions as the
journal publishes two or three times a year, using rolling deadlines
throughout the calendar year rather than set dates. The editors believe
that publishing articles as they come in better reflects The Journal of
Literacy and Technology's mission as an online-only peer-reviewed
academic journal.
 
Submit article manuscripts for consideration at any time. The Journal of
Literacy and Technology currently publishes research articles and book
reviews two or three times a year.

John.V.Nance_at_virgo.sas.upenn.edu,

This is a call for submissions that you wish to be considered for
publication in The St. John's University (Queens, NY) bi-annual literary
journal, The Humanities Review. The journal has published several notable
academics in their respective fields over the last few years such as:
Gayatri Spivak, Amy King and Peter McLaren.

The working themes of this edition are Modern Social Custom Flourishes,
Exemplary Figures, Corruption of Dialect and Post-9/11 Noir. However, we
will not discriminate if your paper fails to converse with these ideas.
Whatever you have available will certainly suffice.
