Authors and artists, from Galileo to Rousseau, Woolfe to Kingsolver, Attenborough to Cousteau, have been exploring how to read or record nature for thousands of years. We seek papers that continue this quest in the context of any genre, time period, or discipline within the humanities.
Performing the Accidental Archive, the fourth annual York University Theatre and Performance Studies Graduate Student Symposium, invites submissions for papers, installations, performances, manifestos, and workshops. In recent years, much theatre and performance studies work has been devoted to investigating, critiquing, and expanding upon the embodiments, objects, places, and practices that comprise the archive. Performing the Accidental Archive is a call to further these discussions by imaginatively exploring the places, practices, objects, and events that are archival despite themselves and that point towards the unintended and incidental remains of our everyday lives and actions.
The School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Maryland, College Park invites paper proposals for our biennial Graduate Student Colloquium. This interdisciplinary conference will address perspectives on power and all its implications within, but not limited to, political, literary, cinematic and cultural contexts, as well as linguistics and Second Language Acquisition studies. We welcome papers from graduate students of the humanities and encourage works that take an interdisciplinary approach and consider intersections of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, resistance, disability, nation, empire, class, civil rights, labor, and religion, among others.

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".
1. a long journey involving travel by sea or in space.
Synonyms: trip, expedition, excursion, tour
There is no mistaking the physical exploration entailed in this simple definition of a voyage, and yet the word's Latin origin, viaticum, or "provisions for a journey," calls to mind far more than embarkment alone. The origin of the word itself invites us to consider the predicate needs at our own or others' starting point(s): How will we prepare ourselves? What will allow us, inspire us, or force us to leave our present situation in pursuit of something beyond our realm of experience?

Circling Our Wagons Conference: Stories and Histories of Hip Hop
April 16-19, 2015
Rap music is a black cultural expression that prioritizes black voices from the margins of urban America. Rap music is a form of rhymed storytelling accompanied by highly rhythmic, electronically based music. It began in the mid-1970s in the South Bronx in New York City as a part of hip hop, an African-American and Afro-Caribbean youth culture composed of graffiti, breakdancing, and rap music. From the outset, rap music has articulated the pleasures and problems of urban black life in contemporary America.

Call for panelists: "New Ways to Conceptualize Diasporic and Migrant Subjectivities: Re-Departing to Re-Arrive"
Proposed Panel for the Annual MELUS Conference 2015 Athens, GA, April 9 – 12, 2015
In When the Moon Waxes Red: Representation, Gender, and Cultural Politics (1991), feminist, post-colonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha presents the identities of diasporic peoples as engaged in a process of re-departure. Revisiting suppressed or denied heritages, she argues, does not necessarily force hyphenated people to choose between singularity and plurality. On the contrary, it offers them an opportunity to "start again with different re-departures, different pauses, different arrivals" (14).
