"Distance and Proximity"
The dynamics of relation are central to interdisciplinary study in the Arts and Humanities. The relational dyad of distance and proximity provides us with a rich set of spatial, affective, theoretical, and historical relations in which we can explore the dynamics that run throughout the fabric of our own cultural inquiry. Moreover, navigating the distances between disciplines enables the preservation and affirmation of the significance of "difference", cultural, sexual, artistic, conceptual and/or otherwise.

In his recent best-selling book Inheriting Abraham, Jon D. Levenson explored some of the historical and theological dimensions of this central figure in the three main monotheistic religious traditions that are also the focus of the two exhibitions that will be held in Antwerp in the Autumn. On 18 and 19 December 2014 the University of Antwerp plans a two-day conference on the continued relevance of Abraham in theology, philosophy and literature.
1st Global Conference
What Is It that still Scares Us?: Mapping Fears in Contemporary Europe
Tuesday 29th – Thursday 31st July 2014
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom
Call for Presentations:
This panel seeks to open a conversation on innovative course design and classroom methodologies in teaching eighteenth-century literature and culture.
In this era of fiscal restraint in North American universities, many faculty members feel increased pressure to create courses that will fill classrooms. The second half of that equation is creating courses that will keep students engaged and returning to our fields of study.
This session invites presentations on all aspects of excellent teaching in eighteenth-century studies, from course design and classroom practice, to scholarly teaching using the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).
Please send a title and 100-200 word proposal by 31 March to tiffany.potter[at]ubc.ca
Intersections: Heritage, Development, Digital Technologies, and Pedagogy in Africa and the African Diaspora
Issue 6 of The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy
JITP Co-Editors: Stephen Brier and Kiersten Greene
Guest Co-Editors: Marla L. Jaksch, Ph.D. and Angel David Nieves, Ph.D.
JITP welcomes work that explores critical and creative uses of interactive technology in teaching, learning, and research. For Issue 6, we are seeking submissions under the theme of "Intersections of Heritage, Development, Digital Technologies, & Pedagogy in Africa & the African Diaspora."
We are seeking proposals and contributions for an edited collection of essays on Gothic chapbooks, bluebooks and schilling shockers. Critical and historical studies of Gothic fiction have long struggled to conceal its disreputable and degenerate offspring: the Gothic chapbook and variants. This contemptuous diffidence still endures and as the Gothic literary tradition has advanced its claims for literary value, curiously these short tales of terror remain marginalized; however, their unique history and impact on the Gothic is unmistakable. This unique collection will focus on the history, development and transmutation of these tales of terror.
