Lore: An E-journal for Teachers of Writing
<http://www.bedfordstmartins.com/lore/> is seeking submission for its next
issue set to appear December 1, 2003. While the "Being Adjuncts" section
has traditionally focused on highlighting the voices of adjuncts
themselves, this upcoming issue will center on the perspectives of
administrators who supervise the teaching and professionalism of adjuncts

adjunct labor, and administrators who work directly with adjuncts often try

Umbr(a): A Journal of the Unconscious 2004 (12/01/03; journal issue; war
and psychoanalysis)

Call for Papers, UMBR(a) 2004

WAR

We are at war. Since the fate of psychoanalysis has been formed by previous
wars, we believe the present configuration of global conflicts to be one of
these key moments in its history which simultaneously provides the object
of psychoanalysis and its living context. In the next issue of UMBR(a): A
Journal of the Unconscious, we propose to take up the relationship of world
war to the very beginnings of psychoanalysis, and war's relationship to
knowledge or truth, as well as the psychoanalytic concepts of war, the
enemy, aggressivity, rivalry, and violence.

The Sounds of Vision: Spectatorship and Aural Perception

The musical score, dialogue, and sounds of contemporary screen based
products of the past ten years have addressed a far more aurally
aware spectator, as demonstrated by the increasing complexities of
style and construction of the sound track. What might be some of the
methodological approaches that can account for the direction of the
spectatorial eye via the ear?

Superhuman, Supernatural, Superlative, or Simply Super Entertainment? :
Contemporary forms and conditions of entertainment media

Materiality aside, the entertainment media possess a refractory
nature: they are often obstinate, stubborn, wayward, perverse, and
disobedient, refusing to be pinned down by critical responses that
seek to homogenize their nature. For this special issue of the
Refractory Journal, we are interested in critical and theoretical
discussions of the forms / conditions / relationships of contemporary
entertainment media products / industries that may include films,
comic books, computer games or theme parks.
