The international conference on the gender of sovereignty in European politics and aesthetics, organized in Leuven, Belgium (18 - 20 December 2017) wants to bring together investigations that revisit issues of gender and sovereignty from a variety of disciplines. The historical scope of the conference ranges from the beginnings of modernity to the present. We invite papers that address imaginations of sovereignty in political and cultural discourse either through case-studies or in comprehensive analyses envisioning a modified history. Topics of interests include but are not restricted to:
Popular Cinema in Bengal: Genre, Stardom, Public Cultures (forthcoming)
Edited by Madhuja Mukherjee and Kaustav Bakshi (Jadavpur University, India)
Publisher: Routledge, UK/ India.
With the erosion of totalitarian regimes in Africa and the intense development of popular protest, women have always found ways to cope with the national disenchantment that has eternally attempted to exploit them as a means to preserve the nation’s homogeneity. Thus, the relationship between women and the nation remains rather complex: on the one hand, they are members of communities, institutions and groups that secure the nation’s political agenda, on the other hand, they are still looked at as social categories holding specific roles in the nation, namely that of reproduction.
The theme of the spring 2018 issue of Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research: The Journal of the Council on Undergraduate Research (SPUR, formerly CUR Quarterly) will focus on undergraduate research and student success outcomes. Four to five articles of 2000–3500 words each are sought from a wide range of disciplines that explore how undergraduate research influences student success in a variety of educational and professional contexts. In addition, shorter vignettes (300 words) are welcomed that offer concrete, creative suggestions with regard to the measurement of engagement in undergraduate research and student success. Examples of topics of interest include the following:
Peace, Literature, and Pedagogy Panel
Topic: “Artists and Activists”
The Midwest Modern Language association invites proposals for the 2017 conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. Papers on any topic will be considered, yet participants are welcome to explore this year's conference theme: “Artists and Activists.” A general description of this theme can be found here.

“Nous habitons notre corps bien avant de le penser”, Albert Camus
With the election of Donald Trump as the President of the United States and Brexit, it appears like we have been returned to aggressively hegemonic geopolitics and spatial exclusions, globally and in the Pacific. We think that, under these conditions, it is important to revisit and extend Edwards Said's provocations.
