The Trans/GenderVariant Caucus at NWSA welcomes papers, panels, and workshops for the 2015 annual conference on Precarity. The conference will take place in Milwaukee, Wisconson Nov. 12-15, 2015. We are looking for papers that address the themes of this year's conference with orientation toward the field of trans* and gender-variant research. (The full NWSA 2015 CFP can be found here.) The caucus seeks to accommodate as many qualified papers, panels, and workshops as possible, however NWSA will make the final decision about which panels are accepted. Presenters accepted into the conference program must become members of NWSA in addition to registering for the conference.
This year's theme is "Generation(s)." We invite submissions exploring "Generation(s)" in all or any of its meanings. Topics are not limited to, but could include: production/creation, lineage/ tradition, or history/ temporality.Areas of inquiry include the fields of literature, linguistics, composition, rhetoric, creative writing, cultural studies, critical theory, philosophy, history, film, gender studies, and the social sciences.The conference will be held on Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day and we especially welcome papers discussing Armenian history, culture, or the impact of trauma and violence.
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".
Update! We are very happy with the responses to our CFP, but have had requests to allow some additional time for submissions. We are delighted to do so, and have extended the deadline to Monday 2nd February 2015. Please share this with your colleagues!

"If there is one thing in this world that I hate, it's losers. I despise them," then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared to a group of high school students, expressing a firm belief in success and failure as the results of individual action and ambition. Himself embodying the American Dream as an immigrant who 'made it big in America,' Schwarzenegger demeaned the worth of individuals he perceived to be 'losers,' and thus echoed an attitude prevalent in contemporary Western neoliberal politics that glorifies 'success,' i.e. striving for the good life, as the only valuable way of being in the world and as the ultimate goal of one's existence.
CFP: THE GREAT WAR AS AN INTERCULTURAL EVENT
Studi interculturali, #3-2015 (December)
GUEST EDITOR: UMBERTO ROSSI
The nineteenth century saw the beginnings of mass education in Britain and elsewhere, while the more recent millennial turn has seen a range of reforms and 'revolutions' within educational systems world-wide, not least the insistent commercialisation of universities and a concomitant move to redefining educators and students as 'service providers' and 'customers' respectively. A large number of neo-Victorian novels are set in or engage with educational contexts, including universities, libraries, anatomy schools, private tutoring/governessing, ragged schools, and art colleges, mirroring the settings and concerns with Bildung in canonical works by Victorian writers such as Charles Dickens, Charlotte Brontë, and others.
