Call for Papers: The Sounds of Vision: Spectatorship and Aural Perception
Journal issue

The musical score, dialogue, and sounds of contemporary screen based
products of the past ten years have addressed a far more aurally
aware spectator, as demonstrated by the increasing complexities of
style and construction of the sound track. What might be some of the
methodological approaches that can account for the direction of the
spectatorial eye via the ear?

Original essays are invited for a collection entitled _The Re-Enchantment
of the World_. This interdisciplinary volume will explore a range of
secular strategies for finding enchantment in a desacralized and rational
world. The editors are interested in essays from a variety of fields,
including history, literary criticism, sociology, philosophy, art history,
and anthropology. (Essays on manifestations of the "New Age" are unlikely
to be considered, however.) Send an abstract of 250 words to Joshua Landy
(landy_at_stanford.edu) and Michael Saler (mtsaler_at_ucdavis.edu) by March 1,
2004.

Issues in Writing

Special Issue: Writing assessment/evaluation

As educators reconsider traditional approaches to teaching writing, they
must naturally reconsider assessing student writing. Whether the
assessment is objective, discursive, cumulative, or some combination of
the three, educators must still confront the issues of the reliability
of the instrument, the practicality of administering it, and how to
interpret the results. The important questions include the following:
How does one define good writing? How do we measure writing
improvement? If writing is a process, why do we assess product, or
should we?

CFP: Intellectual Work in American Fiction 1865-1910 (1/1/04; collection)

updated: 
Thursday, October 9, 2003 - 8:23pm
Armstrong, Rick

I am proposing an edited collection on the issue of intellectual work and
certification in American fiction 1865-1910. Many realist writers of the
late nineteenth and early twentieth century were preoccupied with the value
of intellectual work, especially the profession of writing. This
preoccupation could be due to university reform which emphasized a more
practical education as opposed to the pre-Civil War moral education.

Essays in the collection should focus on the way "the culture of
professionalism" functions in the novels of the period.

UPDATE: Faulkner in the World (1/31/04; collection)

Paula Pinto Elyseu Mesquita

Due to delays in submissions, and so as not to compromise the
geographical diversity of essays we are aiming for, the deadline for
article submissions to the volume Faulkner in the World has been
extended until 31st January 2004.

                      Faulkner In The World

Scholars from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania are
invited to submit their proposals for a compilation of international
essays on the reception of William Faulkner’s fiction in specific
national, political and historical contexts, to be published
internationally in 2004.
