2012 SCSECS Conference
German Panel
Asheville, NC

At the threshold of the modern, science once again (for it had been Greek and Arabic fashion once upon a time) finds fashion, but this time in the laboratory known as Europe. In Germany, the "Klassik" period begins Germany's long look back to Greek forms. Faust is the scientist who--though digressing through a spiritual investigation--ultimately finds resolution in civil engineering. Goethe is the literary giant who initiated scientific studies into the effects of colors. The very idea--we see clearly now because everything is "enlightened."

SSAWW Conference 2012: Citizenship and Belonging, Denver, CO Oct. 10-13

Jill Bergman / Charlotte Perkins Gilman Society

The theme for this year's SSAWW conference, "Citizenship and Belonging," could have been designed with Charlotte Perkins Gilman in mind. (The conference theme information is posted in the "Calls for Papers" section of the website, under "SSAWW Tri-annual Conference." http://public.wsu.edu/~campbelld/ssaww/call.htm#ssaww2012 ) Gilman was certainly interested in nationalism, citizenship, and belonging, and her work posed a series of related questions, such as: Who are citizens? Who should be citizens? What kind of citizenry makes for a healthy and productive nation? What contribution can women make to the nation?

Anthology of Essays on Race and Poetry

updated: 
Thursday, September 29, 2011 - 2:50pm
Edited by Dwayne Betts and Laura McCullough

We invite submissions of abstracts of articles for an anthology on Race and Poetry. Abstracts should be submitted by Oct. 25, 2011. The goal is to generate an inclusive and broad exfoliation of the subject with an ear towards essays that will work in dialogue with each other, though not necessarily in agreement. Please include a short biographical statement with your abstract.

Essays appearing in the anthology will average 3,000 words. They can range from the lyric to the academic (hence, poets who are not scholars are invited to submit), but should be cited in Chicago style where citation is required. If an abstract is accepted, we'll send a note indicating any additional formatting requests.
