'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.

Studies in the Novel welcomes proposals for its Fall 2016 special issue on any topic pertaining to the novel, from its origins to the present.

ALA 2015: Don DeLillo's Influences/Influence

Monday, December 8, 2014 - 1:24pm
American Literature Association

Don DeLillo Society

2015 American Literature Association Annual Conference.
May 21-24, 2015.

At this point in his career, Don DeLillo occupies a fascinating position in literary history, between modernist experimentation and the after of postmodernism, between the wide cultural changes of the immediate postwar decades and the similarly wrenching shifts of the 2000s, a widely-taught author in the Program Era who has never held an academic position, a darling of the high theory moment whose work continues to be relevant.

For a panel at the 2015 ALA sponsored by the Don DeLillo society, proposals are invited for papers that look at any aspect of DeLillo's influences and his influence.

Call for Papers for volume 8, n° 1(15)/ 2015_ESSACHESS – Journal for Communication Studies_Symbolic Communication

Monday, December 8, 2014 - 5:44am

The study of the indirect transmission of the meaning produced in a consciously and / or unconsciously manner, that is to say, "symbolic communication" – syntagm that in itself is an undeniable tautology – engages in communication sciences the conceptual, methodological and epistemological acquis of the research on the symbolic conducted not only in the territories of the humanities and social sciences but also in natural sciences as well. Thus, in the communication sciences, the symbolic is at the very heart of various scientific discourses and the constructions of the research objects that convene their theories to different degrees in the fields such as the philosophy, semiotics, sociology, phenomenology, anthropology, history or hermeneutics.
