- Nous approchons ici, dis-je au maître, d'une grosse objection que j'avais à vous faire…. L'obscurité !
- C'est, en effet, également dangereux, me répond-il, soit que l'obscurité vienne de l'insuffisance du lecteur, ou celle du poète… mais c'est tricher que l'éluder ce travail.

In the wake of the deaths of Michael Brown, Aiyana Jones, Eric Garner, John Crawford, Tamir Price, Ezell Ford, and too many others, and the ostensible inability of the law or the legal system to provide something resembling "justice" in the aftermath of these deaths by police violence, it is impossible not to consider the implications of a legally imposed condition of misery on Black bodies in the U.S. This panel takes up the meeting's call to consider a "long and changing past" of misery by asking how the historical imbrication of U.S. law and race - most obvious and yet still most crucial to analyze in slavery - further structures conditions of misery for Black Americans.

Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery

Paper-proposers are asked to consider methods of transmitting information about all aspects of food production, preparation, presentation and consumption from the earliest times to the latest – from painted prey-animals on the walls of the Lascaux caves to the byways of Wikipedia.
While the subject is open to wide interpretation, themes that might be addressed include the extent to which society is influenced or/and altered by information passed on by electronic means – food-related websites and bloggers, Facebook, Twitter, image-sharing media – as well as messages delivered in traditional format by recipe-writers, restaurant-reviewers, nutritionists, sociologists, food-historians, and through conferences such as our own.

CFP MSA 17, November 19-22, 2015. Boston, MA. Westin, Copley Place

The theme for MSA's 17th annual convention is revolution. The articulation of revolution is of particular interest – manners of expression and mediums of the propagation of "revolution" in any form offer insight and new avenues into the modern era. This CFP seeks proposals that explore revolutionary rhetoric in the early twentieth century: gender, political, scientific, socio-cultural, racial, artistic, print/media, and literary. Interdisciplinary approaches strongly encouraged. Please send proposal and 3 sentence bio to heather.lusty@unlv.edu by April 15th, 2015.

'When […] does occupation become possession? Who has a right to occupy what space? Who must work for whom? What happens in our society to those who can't—or simply won't—work? What obligations do we have to those who prefer not to fit into the system, or run on the hamster's wheel?' Jonathan D. Greenberg.
