What place is there for the unique and multifaceted identities of regions in a globalised world? How might we theorise a sustainable concept of the local that could survive into the future? How do online communities affect our experiences of the local?

The second symposium of the Leverhulme-funded 'Imaginaries of the Future' research network seeks to investigate what the concepts of local and regional identity might mean in the future. One of our key objectives is to explore these concepts in a way that avoids the risk of becoming either exclusionary and inward-facing, a mere neoliberal branding exercise, or morbidly nostalgic.

The IT field has witnessed many advances over the last decade. This included a remarkable progress in distributed and high-performance computing that led to the emergence of some technologies such as cluster, grid, and cloud computing. However, the amplification of large, structured and unstructured datasets, millions/billions of threads, multi-core/many-core architectures, hybrid CPU/GPU models, mobile and wireless networks, and billions of smart objects connected to the Internet are very complex. For this reason, these challenges need further analysis and understanding as they are shaping a new era of high-performance computing.

Few American philosophers had as great an impact on modern American culture and society as John Dewey. From his early experimentalism to his groundbreaking philosophies of education and aesthetics, Dewey not only changed the shape of American philosophy, but his ideas reshaped the way that we think about art, literature, and poetry. This panel seeks to examine further the influence of Dewey's ideas on American poets of the early twentieth century, as well as how his philosophy might help us to rethink the way that we read and understand poetry and its relationship to society, politics, science, and the arts. Possible topics include:

Western University's 2015 Visual Arts Graduate Conference, Boredom, has extended its deadline for submissions to February 6th, 2015.

We invite graduate students at all levels and from various fields, including but not limited to, visual arts, history, museum studies, cultural studies, gender studies, and theory to submit abstracts or artist panel proposals. Possible topics could include: boredom as critical gesture, theme, or strategy; boredom in the making or experiencing of art; the wrote exhibition experience; the mundane.

CFP for edited anthology / Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy, 1945-1975

Requiem for a Nation: religion, politics and visual cultures in post-war Italy (1945-1975)

The main objective of this edited collection is to examine the ways in which religion, culture and politics converge in configuring the contradictions of a post-war Italy's cultural history.

Starting from the assumption that to conduct a critical reflection on Italian post-war visual culture one must investigate the inevitable impact of Catholic religion on everyday life and its social, political and cultural dimensions, I choose the vantage point of cinema and visual culture to propose a critique and exploration of religion's influence on the Italian cultural and political landscape.
