Call for Book Chapters: Sustainability and the City: Urban Poetics and Politics. April 1, 2015.

Lauren Curtright/Georgia Perimeter College

Conventional deployments of the term "sustainability" emphasize "avoiding the long-term depletion of natural resources," as the Oxford English Dictionary defines this word. However, the emergent idea of "comprehensive sustainability" considers the so-called natural environment and human politics in equal measure and means not only reconciling preservation and development but also achieving social justice and equality. Does this altered definition of sustainability mark or require a profound shift in perceptions of cities? Or might we trace concepts of sustainability in past ideas about cities?

Writing and Ability

Friday, January 16, 2015 - 2:26pm
Praxis: A Writing Center Journal

For its Fall 2015 issue, Praxis: A Writing Center Journal welcomes submissions relating to the topic of "Writing and Ability." Debility and capacity are experienced broadly, according to Robert McRuer, who points out that "all people" will experience disability eventually "if they live long enough." Dis/ability shapes the way we communicate with others and impacts our identities as writers, rhetors, and intellectuals.

To that end, the editors of Praxis seek submissions that reflect on the way that issues of dis/ability, both invisible and visible, embodied and mental, shape writing center work. Considerations of dis/ability could even encompass contemporary academic notions of what it means to be a "capable" writer.

Merwin and the Anthropocene, Deadline August 1, 2015

Friday, January 16, 2015 - 11:28am
Merwin Studies: Poetry | Poetics | Ecology

At the turn of the century, the term Anthropocene began gaining traction. Though still not formally accepted, the term suggests that the earth has moved into a new geological epoch due to the impact of human activities. That is, we have so impacted the earth that the human mark is written into its very geology, and will be present for epochs to come.

The Anthropocene, then, presents us with a reconception of our relationship with the earth. Like previous reconceptions (Galileo, Nasa's photograph of the Earth, Gaia), the Anthropocene prompts us toward an existential grappling with the implications of being human on this earth.

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
