*Extended Deadline for Abstracts: January 30th, 2006*

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?

CFP: Rhetoric and Science

(dis)junctions: lost in translation
April 7-8, 2006

This panel is concerned with the question of how science and scientific
dialogues have influenced national rhetoric. Some questions we seek to
examine are:
          How has our vision of the place of science in everyday secular society
changed in the past fifty to one hundred years, or even in the past twenty?
        How has science affected American political rhetoric?
        How have the rhetorics of science and religion shaped each other through
the debate over Darwinism and intelligent design?
        How has the rhetoric of science altered the way we understand or
conceptualize works in the humanities?
