The Medieval Studies Institute of Indiana University invites proposals dealing with any aspect of Medieval Globalisms: movement, discourse, and cultural exchange. Scholars have rigorously interrogated modern models of globalism, but what does "global" mean for the Middle Ages? This symposium aims to identify the global perspectives that emerged in this period in which people, ideas, and objects traversed the globe through travel, trade, war, and exodus, and to explore the larger geographic context in which the Middle Ages occurred. In addition to the geographic, papers might explore studies of medieval conceptions of the globe and its relation to the self.

Unravelling the threads of "revealed knowledge": deconstructing gender in Hinduism.
Trans-Humanities is an academic journal envisioning a new horizon for the humanities. The journal is published by the Ewha Institute for the Humanities (EIH) which has pursued the Humanities Korea (HK) Project since 2007 with its agenda "Trans-Humanities: Reimagining and Reconstructing the Human Sciences." Trans-Humanities aims to transcend the limits of the existing humanities studies as rigid disciplinary research and offer instead an arena for discussion to generate new humanities discourses that can respond to the age of trans-boundary culture by supporting researches with interdisciplinary, convergent, and practical implications.
