International Gothic in the New-Liberal Age--edited volume

updated: 
Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 7:38am
Agnieszka Soltysik Monnet, University of Lausanne

The explosion of interest in the gothic in recent years has coincided with a number of seismic political changes that have reshaped the world as we know it: the fall of the communist bloc, the revolution in information and communication technologies, the emergence of biotechnologies, the proliferation of transnational corporations and, since 2001, the US-led 'War on Terror.' Each is itself underscored by the rise to global predominance of economic neo-liberalism.

The proposed edited volume seeks to trace the ways in which Gothic texts have both represented and interrogated the global changes wrought by neo-liberal economics since the 1980s. We welcome papers that address themselves to:

New Narratives of the Cold War

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 7:28am
Agnieszka Soltysik Monnet, University of Lausanne

In the year of the 25th anniversary of the Berlin Wall's fall, this conference aims to bring together scholars of the Cold War to assess the state of the field and discuss new directions and recent developments. With the post-cold war availability of new archival sources and growing interest in cold war espionage, surveillance and counter-intelligence, the field is rife with opportunities for rethinking some of its stock narratives about Communism and anti-Communism in the twentieth century.

"[Dis]Embodied Disciplines: Blurring Boundaries in the Academy"
Conference Dates: April 11-12, 2014, The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ
Deadline for Abstract Submission: January 20, 2014

The body is a site where regimes of discourse and power inscribe themselves, a nodal point or nexus for relations of juridical and productive power. And, yet, to speak in this way invariably suggests that there is a body that is in some sense there, pregiven, existentially available to become the site of its own ostensible construction.

INVESTIGATING INEQUALITIES: AN INTERDISCIPLINARY ACADEMIC CONFERENCE

updated: 
Tuesday, January 7, 2014 - 12:38pm
Fordham University Graduate Student Association

Inequality has marked human existence and its effects have been felt worldwide. Academics and public intellectuals have pursued the causes and effects of inequalities through academia and the public sphere. The concepts and realities of inequality have been much examined through the lenses of literature, philosophy, theology, sociology, political science, economics, and psychology. From the ancient to modern analyses of the subject, the interpretation of equality and inequality has evolved, but inequality has always been a central theme of academic discourse. This conference will explore inequality as it impels us forward in our pursuit of an end that may ultimately be unattainable.
