SUNY COW 2014 – Call For Proposals
Transitions: The Changing Landscape of Higher Education
September 26-27, 2014 Onondaga Community College, Syracuse, NY

Writing is a process of transition, from invention to drafting to revision and then back again. Every day we urge our students to move their writing from one stage to the next, to make the transition from thoughts and ideas to words on the page, from hastily scribbled notes to well-reasoned paragraphs and papers.

Submissions are sought to complete a collection of essays titled The City after 9/11: Literature, Film, Culture, which is under contract at Fairleigh Dickinson University Press.

Most of the chapters are already in place, but I am seeking up to two additional essays to address the following: 1.) issues of gender and urban space or queer readings of the post-9/11 city; and 2.) fantasy or sci-fi cinematic representations of the post-9/11 metropolis.

I welcome inquiries to avoid duplicate proposals. Otherwise, please email 500-word proposals and a 150-200 word biography to Keith Wilhite (kwilhite@siena.edu) by April 15, 2014.

Familiar descriptors such as the "information economy," "creative economy," and "knowledge-based economy," all reveal how education today functions as a dominant narrative framing technical and economic reforms as well as struggles over political, intellectual, and moral leadership on an international scale. A wealth of intellectual work has outlined the increasingly intimate relationship of capital and education under a neo-liberal rationale providing an absolutely thorough sense of the contemporary university as a corporate body with a new and powerful cosmopolitan sheen.

In Religion and Violence, Hent de Vries argues that the "critical resources of the historical phenomenon called religion […] constitute an immense archive of concepts and figures, practices and dispositions, whose analytical yet highly ambiguous potential for the present age we have not yet begun to fathom" (35). This panel assumes that the concept and figure of redemption represents such an archival site that, in the midst of the "return to religion" that we are witnessing today, is worth our time re-opening.

African American writers have long grappled with the possibilities and limitations of freedom in the United States. In Forging Freedom, Amrita Chakrabarti Myers points out the ways in which ideas of freedom, citizenship, and rights are "always in flux and are definitively fluid" such that the freedom proffered African Americans--most notably the dissolution of slavery and legal recognition as citizen--was never an end in and of itself.
