Hope and Change: The Representation of Barack Obama (ASA 2013, Abstracts due January 18th, 2013)

Cameron Leader-Picone

This panel will focus on Barack Obama as a symbolic figure related to the idea of indebtedness. The logic of debt undergirds the idea that Obama's election signals a transition into a "post-racial" era. This framework suggests that the election of Obama signals a full restoration of democratic values, an absolution for the sins of slavery and Jim Crow, and signals a decisive push towards a new era. In contrast, since his election, Obama has been critiqued for failing to demonstrate his indebtedness to communities of color. African American leaders have specifically critiqued the president for his failure to act on issues of particular interest to the black community.

Virtual Wildernesses: Ecocritical Explorations of Wildness in Gameworlds

Despite the rapid increase in the popularity of gaming in the last decade, there has been little ecocritical consideration of how virtual worlds fit into the ecosystem that supports our increasingly hybridized experience of reality. Thus, the intent of this collection is to (re)consider the virtual spaces of gameworlds as a new kind of wilderness and players as a new kind of explorer.

EDITED BOOK COLLECTION
Critical Norths: Space, Nature, Theory

Melting glacial ice reminds us of the North's role in global climate change. Detritus from the 2010 Japanese tsunami reveals the ring-of-fire traffic of economies, risks, species, bodies, and waste. Environments and communities in the North disproportionately bear the costs of the planet's dependency on oil. It is clear that the North is not an isolated, anachronistic, pristine, exceptional, or "authentic" space, as prevailing assumptions hold. As this collection seeks to demonstrate, the North is a dynamic, transnational, connected and contested space where natures, identities, histories, and politics constantly intersect.

Call For Participants to Build a PLOS-style Model for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Martin Paul Eve, University of Lincoln

For quite some time, I have been interested in/incensed by the scholarly publication system; the exclusions, iniquities and absurdities of it can be clearly seen from only a brief survey of the economic field. I have watched with despair as the sciences have made projects work while the humanities and social sciences have almost sleepwalked into a disaster. The Finch Report published in the UK and accepted by the government will wreak havoc on our modus operandi and work to stratify an already split field.
