The Bane of Their Existence: Making Interdisciplinary Humanities Matter

At many colleges and universities, there exist general education requirements in the so-called “interdisciplinary humanities.” Most students, even those majoring in the humanities, don’t look forward to these classes—which can be large and unwieldy—and they don’t regard them as especially important in their own degree trajectories. Students seem to think that they won’t learn anything, that they will have to endure lecture after lecture, write a couple of papers, take a final, and forget the rest. And, all too often, professors and graduate students saddled with the task of teaching these courses feel the same way. What might we do about this? Are there ways to make general education courses in the humanities interesting and engaging for all involved?

Digesting Discourses: Taste, Appetite, and Consumption #iuic16

full name / name of organization: 
Hosted by the Graduate Students of the IU Department of English
contact email: 
iugradconference@gmail.com

We are issuing a Call for Proposals for scholarly and creative submissions for an international, interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference entitled “Digesting Discourses: Taste, Appetite, and Consumption,” to be held at Indiana University—Bloomington, March 4-5, 2016. Join us for our 14th annual conference hosted by the graduate students of the IU Department of English.

Daily life is ordered by many kinds of consumption, all of which influence the way we produce and comprehend meaning within the world. “Digesting Discourses” invites scholars from the humanities, sciences, law, and public health to explore the diverse meanings of taste, appetite, and consumption across texts, methodologies, and time periods. What do metaphors of eating and digestion reveal about the materiality of knowledge? How do aesthetic and physical consumption differ? What does the critical history of material consumption reveal about patterns and power dynamics of cultural exchange? How do genre, discipline, and methodology impact the representation and study of these topics?

Call for chapters- Essays on DC’s Harley Quinn Due November 5, 2015

full name / name of organization: 
Shelley Barba / Texas Tech University
contact email: 
shelley.barba@ttu.edu

When Harley Quinn was added to the official comic book canon in 1993, it marked an unusual instance where an animated series for children influenced the comic books. Since her first appearance on “Batman: The Animated Series”, Harley has since captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of fans, and her popularity continues to grow. With the coming Suicide Squad movie and a stand-alone comic title, now is the perfect timing for an academic look at the character. This book, published by McFarland & Co., aims to shine a brighter spot light on the character of Harley Quinn as a complex figure in her own right.

The editors are seeking proposals for essays dealing with all aspects of the character of Harley Quinn.
