The Confluence and Division website poses the question "How can modernist practices, aesthetics, and formations be situated within or in relation to modernity's energies, imagined as layers, structures, and figures of confluence and division?" We suggest that modernist representations of contingency afford unique ways of situating these energies in a variety of aesthetic, political, and philosophical contexts. Our panel proposes to examine texts, artifacts, and modernist contexts in which communities are constructed in relation to, and make productive use of, a phenomenon that has been identified as one of the key characteristics of modernity: that of contingency.

Midwest Modern Language Association 2014: The Lives of Cities
November 13-16, 2014 | Detroit, MI
In Programmed Visions, Wendy Chun suggests that "the call to map may be the most obscuring of all: by constantly drawing connections between data points, we sometimes forget that the map should be the beginning, rather than the end, of the analysis" (177). With this year's MMLA conference theme of "The Lives of Cities," the second annual permanent section of digital humanities will explore criticisms of, experiments with, and provocations on mapping, geographic visualization, or other conceptions of urban space that work with or against the digital. Possible topics/projects include:

Red Feather Journal (www.redfeatherjournal.org), an online, peer-reviewed, international and interdisciplinary journal of the child image, seeks submissions for the Spring 2014 issue (deadline April 20th, 2014).
The proliferation and popularity of life-writing in the last three decades has resulted in intense critical inquiry focusing on issues ranging from neurobiological sources of narrative identity to writing style and form, from ethical and legal concerns to narrative self-fashioning of the gendered and/or ethnic and racial self in life writing. While throughout the 1970s and 1980s gender provided an important lens through which to view life-writing, the early findings of the essential differences between texts written by women and men were soon invalidated.
