Modernism and Justification (MSA13, Oct. 6-9, Buffalo, NY)

Tuesday, March 15, 2011 - 11:05am
Evan Kindley / Modernist Studies Association

This panel takes inspiration from recent work in pragmatist sociology – particularly Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot's landmark On Justification: Economies of Worth – that seeks to move beyond sociology's disciplinary focus on how unconscious collectivities exert pressure on unknowing individuals, on the one hand, and economists' disciplinary focus on rational actors engaging in self-interested commerce on the other. Boltanski and Thévenot ask instead: how do people construct agreement and settle disputes in everyday life?

Penser le zouk

Call for papers
« Penser le zouk »

Following the symposium « Penser le zouk » that took place in Martinique from April 2010 to November 2010, the organizing committee solicits contributions to a collection of academic papers, "Penser le zouk".

At first glance and utterance, a Creole onomatopoeia, the term "zouk" seems to bear no specific meaning or significance. Yet, zouk refers to the modern form of music and dance created out of the sense of aesthetic and creativity of the French Caribbean countries of Martinique and Guadeloupe.

Call for Papers: Indigenous Health

Monday, March 14, 2011 - 6:54pm
AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples

Colonization and health have an intricate relationship for indigenous peoples. For many indigenous groups, colonization brought with it diseases that proved devastating for peoples without immunity, but it also brought with it ideas of health that were different from those carried by the more than 5,000 groups that identify as indigenous today. With traditional approaches to health standing alongside mainstream structures in many nations today, health becomes a sphere where the politics of indigeneity and race are negotiated.

[UPDATE] One Week Extended Deadline! Octopus Journal: Invisibility CFP

Monday, March 14, 2011 - 3:28pm
Octopus Journal, Visual Studies Dept. at University of California-Irvine

Octopus Journal (, an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed online journal published by the graduate students of the Ph.D. program in Visual Studies at UC Irvine, invites proposals for submissions to its Spring 2011 volume, Invisibility. Across the humanities and social sciences invisibility has proven to be a fecund topic, which we wish to further explore through papers that test and stretch the limits of visuality and visual forms of representation.
