Air and the Visual Session
Association of Art Historians 2016 Conference
University of Edinburgh
7–9 April 2016
'The air is unique among the elements in having this affinity with nothingness, in signifying the being of non-being, the matter of the immaterial' (Steven Connor, The Matter of Air, 31).
The study day we organized on April 21st 2015 investigated the theme "Order and Disorder" in different fields. Several participants were enthusiastic about the theme and presented an important selection of papers which covered such panels as reflections on order and disorder in the literary imagination, innovation and education, formation and information, social and political order in the contemporary world.
As a theme for an international symposium, we need to pursue the investigation into these fields but also extend it to other spheres such as art and linguistics.
It is our pleasure to inform you that the deadline for manuscript submission for the 8th issue of Reči: a Journal of Language, Literature and Culture has been extended to 31 July 2015. All submissions should be sent as e-mail attachments to email@example.com. The journal welcomes contributions in all research areas pertaining to language, literature and culture. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the instructions given at http://fsj.edu.rs/images/instructions-for-contributors.pdf.
First Year Seminar courses provide a way for first year students to undertake the rigors of intellectual study in an environment supportive of the transition they undergo as they enter college. As such, First Year Seminars can be sources of tension, discovery, frustration, and connection. From the instructor's point of view, the experience of teaching a first year seminar can cause new understandings to emerge—understandings of disciplinary value, of first year students, of institutional culture, and of effective pedagogy.
On January 31st 2015, we started the CFP for the fourteenth issue of the 452°F Journal of Literary Theory and Comparative Literature, to be published on January 31st 2016.
- Deadline for submissions is July 31st 2015; all articles received after this date will be rejected.
- To be considered for the peer review process, all articles must follow the regulations described in the style-sheet.
- The monographic section will bring together a body of texts dealing with "Thinking about Affect in Culture and Art". A non-comprehensive list of possible topics is:
"Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows."-Shakespeare's The Tempest (2.2)
UC Riverside's (dis)junctions conference invites papers and panels that push at the boundary of contemporary scholarship. Our critical focus, "Strange Bedfellows," is geared specifically toward innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to cultural, literary and theoretical texts. We are looking particularly for scholarship that emerges from the disjunction of incongruent forms, that thrives on the border of the unfamiliar, and that transgresses the boundary of the expected.
