This panel considers the twin roles of accumulation and circulation in the reproduction of capitalism, with a focus on forms of accumulation that inhibit capital's life-cycle. As David Harvey argues, capital is 'value in motion' and the cessation of movement produces crises. This panel is especially interested in the figure of the house as a type of property that has ceased to circulate or generate profitable surplus. We welcomes papers that address resistant or unproductive houses in American literature, film, popular culture, and history, including but not limited to dream houses, palaces, haunted houses, abandoned and foreclosed homes.

Quantum Metaphors and Fractal Verse: Intersections in Contemporary American Poetry and Science
Public Intellectuals Lecture Series
Presented by the Department of English and Literature at Carleton University and the Ottawa Public Library
Call for Papers DEADLINE EXTENDED (Jan. 12)
The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series aims to create a bridge between scholars in the Arts and the general public. While the complex ideas these scholars help develop have important, real world applications to the way we understand and interact with each other, they are often couched in jargon and confined to the journals and lecture halls of the academic sphere. This lecture series will offer a venue and format in which scholars can present these ideas to the public in an accessible manner.

CALL FOR PAPERS
"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
