Journal of Cognitive Liberties Call for Papers:

The peer-reviewed Journal of Cognitive Liberties is a scholarly open
forum for expressing thoughts on the importance of cognitive liberty-the
fundamental human right to experience multiple modes of thought and to
engage in independent, insightful, and creative mental processes free of
government prohibition.

The Journal of Cognitive Liberties seeks to define and vitalize the
public debate over human autonomy and mental emancipation. Our
international focus is on new and old drugs, techniques, and
technologies that have the potential to enhance, augment, or restrict
freedom of thought.

Kimmelman, Burt

I am editing A Companion to Twentieth-Century American Poetry (for Facts on

book. All essays will carry the author's name, and a list of contributors
will appear in the back of the book.

CFP: Preschool Culture: Theory and Practice (no deadline; journal issue)

Saturday, February 16, 2002 - 4:26pm
Benjamin Lefebvre

Perhaps more than other children's literature and film, preschool books
and television programs tend to be rooted in teaching the very young
something or other -- letters, numbers, colours, music, sports, values.

What is not clear is just what sort of research on cognitive and emotional
development supports these pedagogic efforts.

Are some books and television shows better than others at promoting
development and acuity in small children, and, if so, why?

What does research in developmental and behavioural paediatrics and in
social learning tell us about optimizng infant development, about the role
of observational learning, about how to promote moral reasoning and
language development?

CFP: Designing Children (no deadline; journal issue)

Benjamin Lefebvre

Canadian Children's Literature / Littérature canadienne pour la jeunesse,
a refereed journal founded in 1975, invites papers on the subject of
Design/Designing for Children. We welcome papers that examine the
design of children's books and posters, toys and games, television and
videos, theatre and performances, newspapers and magazines,
museums and libraries, parks and playworlds. We hope to highlight the
designer's crucial role in conceiving of and shaping our ideas about what
we think expresses a child's imagination, meets a child's needs, and
defines what is special about their province and perspective. Some of the
questions we hope to address are as follows:

CFP: Geomodernisms: 'Race,' Modernism, Modernity (no abstract deadline noted; collection)

Call for Abstracts

Essay Collection Geomodernisms: 'Race,' Modernism, Modernity
This collection seeks a select group of essays that interpret modernism as
one phenomenon of an uneven modernity, that is, a modernism emerging at
different times and places within such contradictory forces as technology,
diaspora, global capitalism, nationalism, and poly-lingualism. We are
especially seeking essays that probe the interlocking of cultural
aesthetics and geo-politics, taking into consideration the local and global
dimensions of a particular modernism.
