Scrutinising Beauty

Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 2:22pm
MHRA Working Papers in the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017





Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.

-          Oscar Wilde


Beauty is desired in order to be befouled. Not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaning it.

-          Georges Bataille


Student Engagement across the Disciplines

Thursday, March 2, 2017 - 10:58am
The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

The current buzz word in academic circles is “student engagement.” Faculty are expected to engage in it, but many of us struggle to match our classroom practices with gridded and numbered administrative standards. How does your institution describe, define, view, practice, or measure student engagement? What are the goals set forth administratively and in the classroom? How do you strive to meet those expectations? And how does it matter to your college, to your administrators, to you, and to your students?

Documents in Human Life: Fresh Approaches

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 - 2:04pm
Proceedings from the Document Academy
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 12, 2017

Documents play roles in all aspects of human life. Recognizing this, the Document Academy seeks to celebrate and explore documents beyond traditional and formal academic research publications. We take inspiration from works such as Pablo Neruda's odes to common things and memoir essays telling the stories of particular documents, such as “The Money,” by Junot Diaz. Such approaches have the capacity to illuminate aspects of reality that are overlooked by traditional academic research.
