Education
The following is a call for manuscripts for the Peter Lang Publishing
Education and New Literacies list.
One of the premier education publishing groups, Peter Lang Publishing is
looking for works that understand how new literacies and new ways of seeing
education are being invented -- as people from all walks of life, in
diverse sites, wrestle with new technologies, shifting values, changing
institutional forms and processes, and emerging structures characteristic
of postmodernity/New Times/the Global Informational Age. These texts aim to
explore these emerging domains and to create awareness of key trends and
features, translating them into educational consciousness and practice.

There is a need to start a List-Serve group which will be focussed on
Indology in all its possible multi-disciplinary splendor. Contemporary
Indology and Post-Colonial Studies is being fuelled by insular academic
discourses. We need to study Indian Literatures, and especially those in
English with some openness to the ideas of those who are in the
universities today. We need to answer questions like whether the text of
Katha Upanishad can be interrogated by some of the same tools that Form
critics use to interrogate the Bible. We need to commission studies on
Indian dramas and may be have someone gloss the Mahabharata with the same

Salman Rushdie’s work is overflowing with visual images. Essays are
invited for an anthology tentatively entitled Salman Rushdie and Visual
Culture(s) that seeks to shed light on Rushdie’s fictional and non-
fictional writings and their various connections with visual culture. The
collection does not intend to set aside textuality, but draws it into
dialogue with visuality. Some possible topics for consideration include,
but are not limited to:
- film;
- photography (e.g. The Ground Beneath Her Feet and essays on portrait
photography);
- painting (e.g. The Moor’s Last Sigh);
- sculpture (e.g. Rushdie’s collaboration with artist Anish Kapoor in
Blood Relations);
- advertising;

Justin St.Clair

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first American publication of
Vladimir Nabokov's masterpiece, _Lolita._ In celebration of this
milestone, and of the novel's unabated cultural importance, this panel
seeks to offer a selection of contemporary approaches to the novel. Papers
engaging the most tenacious strands of _Lolita_ criticism are certainly
welcome (censorship/obscenity debates, _Lolita_ as a pop fusion of
"highbrow" and "lowbrow," the novel as the "Great American" whatever), but
eclectic and original submissions on any aspect of _Lolita_ are strongly
encouraged. Please send abstracts of 250-500 words to Justin St.Clair,
University of South Alabama <jmstclair_at_jaguar1.usouthal.edu>.

I hereby invite proposals for a session I'm organizing on "Atlantic History and Literary History"
for the Biennial Conference of the Society of Early Americanists to be held in Hamilton, Bermuda,
4-7 March 2009. This session aims to build upon the similarly titled (and, I've been told, highly
successful) session I organized at the Montreal ASECS of 2006.
