Glossator: Practice and Theory of the Commentary

Glossator publishes original commentaries, editions and translations of
commentaries, and essays and articles relating to the theory and history of
commentary, glossing, and marginalia. The journal aims to encourage the
practice of commentary as a creative form of intellectual work and to
provide a forum for dialogue and reflection on the past, present, and
future of this ancient genre of writing. By aligning itself, not with any
particular discipline, but with a particular mode of production, Glossator
gives expression to the fact that praxis founds theory.

Photography, Modernism, Feminism
 In her essay "From Clementina to Kasebier: The Photographic Attainment of
the ’Lady Amateur,’” art historian Carol Armstrong argues that
photographers such as Julia Margaret Cameron, Lady Hawarden Clementina, and
Gertrude Kasebier took astute advantage of photography's low place on art's
hierarchical scales to assert themselves as artists. The work of these
women, therefore, indirectly calls attention to the relationship between
photography and the emergence of feminism in the U.S. and Britain in the
nineteenth- and early twentieth- centuries. This panel seeks to bring
modernist literature composed by women into the relationship between

Bi-directional Perspectives in the Cognitive Sciences
 
February 27 â€" March 1, 2009
Philipps-University Marburg, Germany
 
In recent cognitive research, there has been a shift from mental representation in individuals
towards the interactional, testified by social cognitive neuroscience, machine learning, discourse
analysis, and so on. Aiming at bringing together researchers who engage in the trans-
disciplinary study of cognitive phenomena, this conference intends to investigate the bi-
directionality, that is, the mutual heuristic applicability of diverse (and possibly complementary)
research topics and methodologies in the cognitive sciences.

Serial Novel(ty): The Evolution of the Novel in the Digital Age

Eager readers in days past would anxiously await the next novel installment to arrive via
newspaper or magazine, delaying (and perhaps heightening) the pleasure of the narrative world.
Today’s new media, including television, internet, and digital media, also rely on various forms
of serialization to deliver new texts with the click of a button. We are interested in exploring how
contemporary authors use serialized formats to reach their audiences, and how today’s forms of
serialization resemble, reaffirm, and reject the challenges and advantages of traditional
serialization.

CFP: [Collections] Global Encounters: Taiwan Literature vis-à-vis World Literatures

updated: 
Monday, April 28, 2008 - 2:21pm
Bennett Fu

Globalization, a trend prevailing to the future development of Taiwan, has
tremendously transformed the vistas of political reforms, cultural
productions, and ethnic re-composition on the island. The globalized
landscape concurrently re-channels the visions of not only the local
residents, including indigenous indwellers and foreign settlers, but also
the international communities keeping an eye on the island’s route of
development. Such gradual but radical transformation, in many ways, has
encouraged the nation-state identity and identification to vacillate
between insularism and globalization. In this transitional state, Taiwan
can be regarded as a post-industrial, postmodern, or postcolonial cultural
