Special Issue on Aging, Ageism, and Old Age, Spring 2006

Feminist theorists of old age, such as Baba Copper, Barbara Macdonald,
Cynthia Rich, and Margaret Cruikshank have charged that women's studies and
the feminist movement have, in large part, ignored the issue of aging. In a
field in which so many other aspects of body-based identity are recognized,
debated, de- and re-constructed, and challenged, the subject of old age
remains relatively unexamined and untheorized - nearly taboo.

-Nebula is an international, unique, first-class
publication. The project of Nebula is to provide an
interface between specialist and highly sophisticated ideas
and their articulation into a comprehensible medium of
layman’s terms. Unlike many academic publications, Nebula

CFP: MTV and Philosophy (5/30/04; collection)

Do the philosophical implications of MTV really get you going?

If so, you are invited to submit an abstract for a collection of essays on
'MTV and Philosophy'. I seek to obtain the permission of Open Court Books in
publishing the result as part of their trendy Popular Culture and Philosophy
series. The series has spawned six successful volumes since its 2001 debut
with 'Seinfeld and Philosophy', including the best-selling 'The Matrix and
Philosophy', and is noted for revitalising philosophical narratives through
its celebration of pop culture as worthy of in-depth analysis.

Social Semiotics is a refereed journal and has been published continuously for
14 years. The journal invites work that explores relationships between Culture,
Meanings and Practices in a broad range of contexts. We invite contributions
from anyone who feels at home in the transdisciplinary conjunction which the
journal represents. We would be interested in papers which deal especially (but
not exclusively) with the following topics:

- asylum seekers
- cultural geography
- space and identity
- risk and communication
- surveillance

Papers should be 5-7 000 words in length and referenced in the Chicago Style.

Deadline for Proposals: September 15, 2004

In J. R. R. Tolkien's THE LORD OF THE RINGS, the Hobbits are warned, "Do not
meddle in the affairs of wizards"; yet, few readers today, in a time when
the wizard features so prominently in both popular culture and scholarship,
would choose to follow this admonition. Accepting this as a given, proposals
are now being accepted for an essay collection co-edited by Charlotte A. T.
Wulf and Michael A. Torregrossa and investigating the figure of the wizard
in Western culture.
