Proteus: A Journal of Ideas seeks submissions for our upcoming issue, "Privacy and Freedom in the Digital Age." We are soliciting articles and creative works from a wide range of disciplines that reflect upon the issue's theme. We are looking for broad theoretical inquiries, individual case studies, and traditional scholarly articles related to the theme. Additionally, we strongly encourage submissions of theme-related photographs, poetry, and creative writing.
Please see below the call for papers for the graduate student conference hosted by Princeton University's French and Italian Department.
This panel explores the theme of "literature and the other arts" through the unique dynamic of word-image interaction situated in the poet-artist collaboration. Paper proposals addressing poet-artist collaborations from any time period found in ekphrasis, illustrated books, book arts, children's books, broadside printings, digital projects, and museum/site-specific installations and exhibits are welcome. By May 30, 2015, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Anne Keefe, University of North Texas, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fifteen years in, our twenty-first century literary traditions are beginning to take shape, and, indeed, it may be time to bring the poorly-named "contemporary" period to a close after its 70-year reign. Questions remain, however. Have we noticeably shifted into a new literary period? Or, is the defining crisis that will launch a new literary period just on the horizon? The 9-11 Attacks, globalization/neoliberalism, the Anthropocene, the collapse of a post-Cold War détente with the resultant repolarization of world powers and many other cultural shifts may serve as useful markers of an incipient yet-to-be-labeled era.

We are constantly under pressure to define the "now." When did it begin? What does it include? When will it end? Recent attempts to capture this moving target have offered an array of starting points--the end of World War II, 1968, the end of the Cold War, the start of the new millennium, 9/11, the 2008 financial crisis. These attempts have also offered an array of periodizing concepts--postmodernism, post-postmodernism, late capitalism, neoliberalism, the anthropocene, the post-civil rights era, the post-human. We propose to respond to and circumvent this pressure in two ways. First, by creating a dialogue between our periodizing concerns and recent literature and art.
