The International Conference Stereo & Immersive Media'16 aims to gather researchers, artists, curators, and archivists working on visual and sound media renowned for their immersive features.

"Stereo" environments (stereoscopic and stereophonic) have been widening the fields of photography and sound since the 19th century, contributing to the emergence of a progressively immersive media culture. This conference aims to bring together photography and sound research fields and their relationship with stereo environments, including other immersive visual media (e.g. panoramas, optical displays or virtual games) as well as sound art practices.

'I am Elizabeth Reegan and another day of my life is beginning' she said to herself. 'I am lying here in bed. I've been five weeks sick in bed, and there is no sign of me getting better. Though there's little pain, which is lucky, and the worst is fear and remorse and often the horrible meaninglessness of it all. Sometimes meaning and peace come but I lose them again, nothing in life is ever resolved once and for all.
- John McGahern, The Barracks (1963)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry

The recent refugee crisis in Europe has brought to the fore the pressing aspects of the precarious nature of human life. This is not a sudden crisis as scholars have traced its historical roots with the exploits of "Western" capitalism, imperialism, environment, and war on terror. Such engagement has also given us different politico-philosophical points of analysis of the condition: for instance, the rise of terms such as "precariat," "new subaltern," "precarity" (Guy Standing; Simon During), the debates on "Anthropocene" and "capitalocene" (Dipesh Chakraborty; Jason W Moore), or the interest in neuro-biological or communal human affects (Catherine Malabou; Judith Butler). Added to such is the challenge of the machines and objects in our daily life.

The Scope of Debt in America

updated: 
Sunday, April 17, 2016 - 9:30am
Lehigh Valley Vanguard

"You are not a loan." The organization Strike Debt uses this double entendre to unite debtors nationally.

Americans face a unique problem as usurious lending practices have become a norm, especially for the poorest of citizens, minorities, and students.

Many Americans work to simply pay down a debt that will never go away. Some are going into debt to cover basic needs every month.

Unfortunately, solutions to debt are not as simple as saving money, just not buying with credit, or refusing to take out loans. It is not useful to tell many of those with debt to "just budget their money."

"Financial planning" becomes a distant luxury for those strapped with massive debt.
