It is an unfortunate truth that slavery, in one form or another, exists in almost all human societies. The 2014 United States State Department's Trafficking in Persons Report, for example, claims that virtually every country in the world is now a source, transit, or destination point for human trafficking, which it describes as a "modern form of slavery."

Public Intellectuals Lecture Series
Presented by the Department of English and Literature at Carleton University and the Ottawa Public Library
Call for Papers DEADLINE EXTENDED (Jan. 12)

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.

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

Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?

In her 2014 Modern Language Association Presidential Address, "Connective Histories in Vulnerable Times," Marianne Hirsch reconfigures vulnerability. She asserts that answers to problems lie within the "aesthetic encounters" that we practice, study, and teach, which "elicit a sense of vulnerability that can move us toward an ethics and a politics of open endedness and mobility, attuning us to the needs of the present, potentialities for change, and to the future." Vulnerability, in essence, sustains us. In this era of STEM-focused funding and vast academic change, the humanities continue to reconfigure vulnerability into sustainability.

When d'Eaubonne coined the word "ecofeminism" in 1974, related ideas were already being discussed in a range of social sciences and humanities. Within anthropology Ortner (1974) argued that the universal devaluation of women relative to men could be explained by assuming that women are seen as being closer to nature than men, while men are seen as being more intimately connected with the "higher" realm of culture. Other disciplines seriously engaged the connections between feminism and ecology only later.

A Call for Papers:
Travel and Translation in the Middle Ages

March 28, 2015 at Yale University

Abstracts from graduate students are now being accepted for the 32nd Annual New England Medieval Studies Consortium Graduate Student Conference, the theme of which will be "Travel and Translation in the Middle Ages." In light of recent endeavors such as the Global Chaucers project, the growing interest in the multilingual cultures of England, and the upcoming anniversaries of two great medieval councils, Fourth Lateran (1215) and Constance (1415), "travel" and "translation" are immediately relevant to many branches of medieval studies.
