English Creative Writing: Theory and Practice for Non-Native English Speakers

updated: 
Friday, January 30, 2015 - 1:01pm
Asst. Prof. Salinee Antarasena

In Asian Countries, English is seen very much as the language of business, not as the language of expressing their ideas in creative writing piece. Therefore, creative writing skill is a challenge for most non-native speakers of English to master as it not only becomes an arduous task when they need to begin their creative writing piece but the writing process is also more complicated, involving a series of forward and backward movements between the writer's ideas and the manner of expressing thoughts; both require a high level of their language control as well as creativity.

Hostile Intelligences and The General Antagonism: CALL FOR PAPERS

"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
–Matteo Pasquinelli

Radical Kinship - Tufts University (Deadline: May 7)

Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

RADICAL KINSHIP

Keynote: Omise'eke Tinsley, University of Texas at Austin
Conference Date: October 16, 2015

Kinships that cross boundaries often entail radical decenterings of family, community, or subjectivity. What happens when Yellow Peril supports Black Power in Ferguson? When Maggie Simpson holds up a Je Suis Charlie sign? When, in a single frame, Kordale and Kaleb dismantle stale notions of Black masculinity, queerness, and fatherhood?

Can we undomesticate kinship?

CFP MLA 2016 (Austin, 01/07-01/10) Special Session "Food and Feast in Outlaw Literature"

updated: 
Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 12:22pm
Alexander L. Kaufman

Conference papers invited to explore the literary, cultural, and theoretical aspects of food and feasting in traditional outlaw narratives, or texts that have characters who are outsiders, tricksters, transgressors, or marginals. This session will consider the presence and function of food and feast in texts (broadly defined), with an eye to considering whether and how instances of food preparation and eating can be said to display, to develop, or to subvert the conventional ideas of community and fellowship most commonly associated with foods and feasts. This session encourages papers that examine post-medieval texts, cultures, and practices, especially Australian, Native American, Pan-American, and Eastern.

Abstract/shuns

Joshua Adair and Paul Walker

What about those ideas you entertain but never fully develop? Those notions which are reviled and dismissed by peer gatekeepers? Follies so whimsical they unsettle even you?

We're looking for those submissions, the ones shunned by polite society and keepers of the status quo.

Let us be up front: Abstractshuns endeavors to become an ersatz academic journal, middlebrow at best. If Grindr/Tinder (depending on the orientation of the idea) spent a really naughty weekend with Notes and Queries, this would be the spawn, with Courtney Love and Jack Halberstam as godparents.
