Synaesthesia: Communication Across Cultures is an international, open-access interdisciplinary journal, rigorously peer-reviewed and oriented toward advancing new perspectives and understandings of how thought, engagement, and the communication of meanings hinge upon human perception.
The journal encourages new dialogues in communication theory and research by publishing original scholarship from scholars within the international community that explores issues from the interpersonal to mass-marketed, regional to global, academic to corporate, among genders and across time. The journal welcomes innovative theoretical essays and research articles and aims to advance the progressive exchange of ideas.
Through a geocritical focus, the goal of this panel is to explore the significance of spatial identity. Building on the "Familiar Spirits" theme of the conference, this panel will focus on the spirit and identity of an area and its people. Topics can vary from an ecocritical approach to a tribal community's relationship with the spirit of land, to the spatial identity of post 9/11 urban landscapes, or anywhere in between.
Please submit all proposals through the conference website: www.pamla.org
If you have any questions, please to not hesitate to contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org

TEXTUAL TRAILS - TRANSMISSIONS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN TEXTS
11th Conference of the European Society for Textual Scholarship
Helsinki, 30 October - 1 November 2014
Texts tend to travel across space and time, carried by sound waves, written on parchments and codices, sealed in envelopes and travel trunks, and streaming as bits in the internet. They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.

Call for Papers: Picking Through the Trash
PIVOT: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies and Thought
"Ours is a culture and a time immensely rich in trash as it is in treasures."
"[T]rash talks to us, or certainly speaks of us. However much we want to put trash and garbage and waste and rubbish out of sight, out of mind, out of smell, there is considerable evidence that we take them to be revelatory of all manner of not insignificant facts about individuals, communities, civilizations, or that tired old workhorse the 'human condition.'"
—Elizabeth V Spelman
