Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge

Hives, Tribes, Assemblages: New Collectivities
In introducing A Thousand Plateaus Deleuze and Guattari famously quip: "The two of us wrote Anti-Oedipus together. Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd." And matters only get more congested as their mental geography unfolds among landscapes traversed by herds, swarms, bands, gangs, hoards, flocks, packs, masses and multiple other collective becomings. This special issue of Rhizomes invites essays and multimodal works that consider new manifestations of and approaches to collectively, community or other multiplicities—whether inspired by D & G or not.

New book series: Material Readings in Early Modern Culture

Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 3:38pm
Ashgate Publishing Company

This new book series provides a forum for studies that consider the material forms of texts as part of an investigation into early modern culture. The editors invite proposals of a multi- or interdisciplinary nature, and particularly welcome proposals that combine archival research with an attention to the theoretical models that might illuminate the reading, writing, and making of texts, as well as projects that take innovative approaches to the study of material texts, both in terms the kinds of primary materials under investigation, and in terms of methodologies. What are the questions that have yet be to asked about writing in its various possible embodied forms? Are there varieties of materiality that are critically neglected?

UPDATE--Second Call Personal and Social Myth-making in the Work of Margaret Atwood

updated: 
Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 4:50am
Northeast Modern Language Association

A central concern of Margaret Atwood's work has been myth-making. She has said the Edible Woman and Surfacing are about characters with unworkable mythologies. The Handmaid's Tale has been read as exploring potential consequences inherent in the beliefs(or mythologies) of religious conservatives. Her most recent work The Year of the Flood features a cult-like group. This panel seeks papers that examine Atwood's evolving vision of the role of mythologies in our lives.Please send 250-750 word abstracts to Mary Lannon at mary.lannon@ncc.edu

MELOW and MELUS-India -The Society for the Study of the Literatures of the World and The Society for the Study of the Literature of the United States - India Chapter

In a world that is rapidly changing it is inevitable that our parameters for the study of literature, culture and society are forever being re-defined. There are emerging spaces that cry for attention, black holes that have remained undetected for too long, alternative solutions that may provide an answer to many of our problems, and novel ways of negotiating issues related to the multifarious aspects of human life.

MELUS-MELOW 2011 focuses on these new approaches that (a) move away from the beaten track to clear fresh ground; (b) advocate the use of fresh critical / theoretical approaches to questions faced by human society; (c) focus attention on areas that have been under-represented; or (d) provide new insights into prevalent issues.
