Ethics is a global endeavor bereft of any universal validity. Ethics is subjective, positioned and biased, commuting between subjectivity and collectivity/community. Ever since the birth of this concept, ethics was praised and betrayed, simultaneously, asking for resistance, empowerment and resituation.[...]
In a relatively new 'turn to ethics', this project seeks to work with an idea of the ethical that goes beyond colonial encountering and along the lines of cultural and economic surplus thinking as the fundament of the planet's present global amalgamation. Looking at the asymmetries and disjunctures of global (labour and mind) divisions and their value-coding, the project takes these questions as a starting point:

The official reaction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to The Book of Mormon, the musical from Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park and Robert Lopez of Avenue Q, consists of a single sentence: "The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."

The Graduate Center-CUNY English Student Association Conference: Trance
March 5-6 2015

This conference seeks to bring together critical and imaginative forms of scholarship, workshops, performance and other creative work around ideas of trance. From the Great Awakening's irruptive glossalia to the glossed eyes of late capitalist workers, from various manifestations of trance dance to the moving spiral, trance is woven into the fabrics of spiritual, theological, political, and literary histories, texts and methodologies. Trance not only challenges Enlightenment models of knowledge production, but also forces us to navigate extra-linguistic experience, thus destabilizing language as epistemological ground.

English Department of Ivy Tech Community College Northwest

The Atrium, a Journal of Academic Voices, is now in its sixth year of consistent publication. This unique journal presents a forum for the community of professionals engaged in post secondary education and research. One key focus for the journal is classroom best practices, that murky landscape we traverse between Learning Theory and Instructional Practice. The Atrium acknowledges the value of discourse in the project of uncovering the principles that might govern the development of Best Practices. Simply put, we can talk the talk, but can we walk the walk? The Atrium is meant to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines that will demonstrate how we do just that.

Mid-20th-Century American Poetry and the Question of Beauty (12/12/14; 5/21-24/15, ALA Boston)

The Charles Olson Society

"Rigor of beauty is the quest," writes Williams in his preface to "Paterson." "But how will you find beauty when it is locked in the mind past all remonstrance?" For the 2015 ALA conference in Boston, the Charles Olson Society invites proposals on Beauty and mid-twentieth-century American poetry. Although the 1950s are perhaps best known for the rise of the Beats, the Confessionals, and the Black Mountain poets, these were also the years of Adrienne Rich's formalist work ("Aunt Jennifer's Tigers"), as well as some of the best work of Richard Wilbur, Theodore Roethke, and other strong poets working with traditional forms.

Louisa May Alcott Society (Contact Christine Doyle)

"Transatlantic Alcott": Louisa May Alcott's status as a quintessentially American writer notwithstanding, literature and life on the other side of "the pond" interested her immensely. Her favorite writers included Dickens, Bronte, Goethe, Schiller, de Stael; admiration for their work surely added fuel to her own "burning" genius. New Englander though she was, she took not one but two European tours, producing sketches as well as fiction in response to the experiences. Even in the most American of her novels, _Little Women_, several chapters take place in Europe, where Amy and Laurie visit many places Louisa experienced on her first European tour in 1865-66. What does Alcott's writing show about her reading of Europe and European writers?
