CFP: [Collections] Special Issue: Documents and Interpretation ((Vol. 34, April 2008)

updated: 
Friday, November 30, 2007 - 2:39am
National Central University Journal of Humanities

In the area of humanities, a central role is often awarded to the
interpretation of documents of various kinds. Theories of the document
and the archive long enjoy a scholarly standing and posses a
systematicity of their own. The interpretation and organization of
documents, through a process of theoretic reflection, gives birth
to “philosophical hermeneutics” and “archaeology of knowledge” in the
contemporary world.

CFP: [Graduate] Sex, Lies, and Literature: The Fourth Annual University of Wisconsin-Madison Literature Conference

updated: 
Thursday, November 29, 2007 - 6:19pm
Kevin Boettcher

The fourth annual University of Wisconsin-Madison Literature Conference (MadLit) invites paper
proposals for this year’s topic, “Sex, Lies and Literature.”

In the opening chapter to his recent book, After Theory, Terry Eagleton claims, “What is sexy…is
sex.” Eagleton reminds us that even the most cutting-edge look to the future of theory can, and
should, involve a return to the essentials of the human condition. We wish to take a
comprehensive view of our field that encompasses both our past and future, and interrogate the
concepts: sex, truth, and the text.
