Scholars across the disciplines are pleased to announce the formation of The
Levinas Society. Inspired by Lithuanian-born Jewish philosopher and Talmudic
commentator Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995) and contemporary Levinas scholarship,

and collaboration across the academic disciplines. The goal of this society is
to facilitate a broad and dynamic community of persons working toward effecting
the ethical in political, feminist, religious, critical, literary, pedagogical
and philosophical realms.

UPDATE: Lifewriting Annual 2006 (1/15/06; journal issue)

Tom Smith

Lifewriting Annual seeks critical and scholarly essays on lifewriting in
all its forms -- biography, autobiography, memoir, journals, diaries, and
works in other media. We are particularly interested in articles describing
and assessing scholarly resources for biographical writing, especially
collections of manuscripts and letters. We welcome hybrid essays combining
one or more lifewriting genres, e.g., memoir and biography, for a section
called "Crossings." We are also looking for reviews of recently published
biographies, autobiographies, and other works of lifewriting. Submissions
may treat works in any language or period, but must be written in English.

Deadline for 2006 issue: January 15, 2006.
