Kaleidoscope Journal: 'Evidence' Theme CFP

Friday, March 4, 2016 - 3:42pm
Institute of Advanced Studies, Durham University

Kaleidoscope is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal edited by postgraduate researchers at Durham University. Working under the auspices of Durham's Institute of Advanced Study, Kaleidoscope is designed to foster international communication between postgraduates in different disciplines, to promote excellence in interdisciplinary research, and raise awareness of the IAS as a public forum for interdisciplinary scholarship. A key feature of Kaleidoscope is that it embodies and connects diverse subject areas in a single publication, whether in the Arts and Humanities, the Sciences, or the Social Sciences. The IAS publishes a new theme for study each year, and submissions are particularly encouraged relating to this theme.

[UPDATE] Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television (Edited Collection)

Friday, March 4, 2016 - 11:16am
Betty Kaklamanidou - Margaret Tally

We are currently inviting submissions for 2-3 chapters for an edited collection on Washington and Politics on Contemporary US Television already contracted by Ashgate.
Television has been accommodating a bigger number of political narratives in the last years. From the dramatic "The West Wing," "Scandal," "Madame Secretary," "Homeland," "House of Cards," to the short-lived yet impressive "Boss," and "Commander in Chief" and the mini-series "Political Animals," as well as the comedic "Veep" and "The Brink," millennial TV is fraught with political plot lines that are edgier and more provocative than their filmic counterparts.

Editing the Amanuensis, due 15 March

The Association for Documentary Editing invites proposals for its 2017 MLA session entitled "Editing the Amanuensis." We seek presentations that address issues of editing material prepared with the help of an amanuensis, broadly defined. Among such situations are instances where someone prepares an original text on behalf of someone else, typically in the voice of that person, or where a scribe or clerk produces a fair copy of a previously oral or written text.

Proposals could address editing for publication

- the work of a person who prepared the original text on behalf of someone else, typically in the voice of that person (Alex Haley for Malcolm X),
