The Department of English and Philosophy at West Point will host an interdisciplinary symposium to consider the relation of the material text to the formation and function of states and state-like structures. In particular, we seek to investigate the methods and effects of state and institutional manipulation of textual materialities to create, control, or shape responses. We welcome abstracts that consider texts from the oral ancient to the digital contemporary.

Keynote speaker: Michael F. Suarez, S.J. (University Professor and Director of the Rare Book School at the University of Virginia, Member of the National Council on the Humanities).

THE USES OF UTOPIA
26 June 2016, Clare College, University of Cambridge
A SYMPOSIUM AND CELEBRATION
ON THE 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THOMAS MORE'S UTOPIA

In Fredric Jameson's Archaeologies of the Future, he writes: "can we invent a way of reading Thomas More's Utopia (1516) so as to recover something of the shock and freshness of its elegant new Latin for the first European readers?" This symposium is both interdisciplinary investigation provoked by this question, and a celebratory reading for the 500th anniversary of More's text.

The symposium welcomes researchers from diverse disciplines to read utopia today from their own fields, which may include but not be limited to:

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 1:18pm
full name / name of organization: 
Sibeal Network

Following on from the success of our 2015 conference we are looking for submissions for our next journal. Papers are invited to engage with the theme of the conference, (In)visible Lines. We are also accepting feminist or gender studies book reviews. The books must have been published since November 2015.

The journal will focus on how the feminist movement has been categorised as a series of different waves, first, second and third, with some contemporary critics suggesting we are now on the precipice of a fourth wave. Each of these stages had their own aims and means of achieving those aims: underlying all was a quest for equality, for some or for all.

Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the ABC Family/Freeform to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. In November 2001, Fox Family Channel was purchased by The Walt Disney Company and ABC Family was born. Launched in 1977 by the Christian Broadcasting Service, the network has gone through many changes in ownership and title, and its most recent incarnations feature a unique mixture of programming and over the past decade has taken significant risks to become one of the leading cable channels with its targeted demographic of 14-34 year-olds.
