Public Knowledge Journal Vol. 3, Issue 1 CFP - Media and Society [February 11, 2011]

Wednesday, January 12, 2011 - 3:09pm
Public Knowledge Journal

Public Knowledge Journal seeks articles, book reviews, essays, interviews and multimedia submissions for Volume 3, Issue 1 on Media and Society.

Media allow us to comment, celebrate, and critique culture, politics, and elements of daily life that might otherwise go unremarked (or, at the very least, unpublished). The current political and public furor over WikiLeaks – most recently, over its release of potentially sensitive diplomatic cables – suggests an ongoing conversation over the right to and ownership of public knowledge.

[Update] The Crisis of the Confined Body: A Conference in Romance Studies / Abstract Deadline 1/24/10

Tuesday, January 11, 2011 - 7:06pm
University of California, Berkeley

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.
