In the past two decades, universities, professional organizations, and businesses around the western world have placed a great emphasis on celebrating diversity on their grounds, welcoming members, students, faculty, and employees from different ethnic, religious, gender, sexual, and class identities. This trend toward embracing otherness has often been instituted and protected by laws and policies in different countries, and employees have been trained to effectively maintain agreeable and harmonious work atmosphere with each other.

(UPDATE) CFP: Literature and Censorship (Deadline Sep 30, 2015)

Sanglap: Journal of Literary and Cultural Inquiry (Vol 2 Issue 2)

India is one of the few countries in the world to have a film censor board. And one of its recent casualties is a lesbian film significantly titled "Unfreedom." The current government has upped the ante by extending the ban culture of censorship from the aesthetic realm to the realm of everyday consumption with the ban on beef. The ban on Jafar Panahi, the Iranian filmmaker, continues and he continues to express himself in his art form in house arrest. The recent Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris has put the limelight back on censorship.

[ACLA 2016] Liquidly Queer: Fluids That Matter

updated: 
Wednesday, August 12, 2015 - 11:22am
American Comparative Literature Association

Slick, lubed, squirting, dry: bodies, fluids and the act of sex have long been sensually, erotically intertwined. But what would it look like to move from a poetics to a queer politics of fluids? From the fluids of the sex act to liquid metaphors employed to express trans*/gender/sexual fluidity, to a broader, critical exploration of new (sensual, fluid) materialisms, this seminar centers on a hypothesis: a closer reconsideration of fluids, both literal and figurative, may open up new approaches to queer analysis.

[UPDATE] Public Intellectuals Lecture Series (Fall 2015)

updated: 
Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 8:05pm
Carleton University

DEADLINE EXTENDED: August 18

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series has just wrapped up a successful spring lineup featuring four fantastic, well attended lectures. We are now planning a second series for the fall.

The Public Intellectuals Lecture Series aims to create a bridge between scholars in the Arts and the general public. While the complex ideas these scholars help develop have important, real world applications to the way we understand and interact with each other, they are often couched in jargon and confined to the journals and lecture halls of the academic sphere. This lecture series will offer a venue and format in which scholars can present these ideas to the public in an accessible manner.
