The annual Rice University Symposium in Houston, Texas invites papers that examine the unexpected material and affective supports of the common, commons, and community. Papers might explore representations of communities as they develop across spatial and temporal boundaries as well as how shared background understandings connect to the experience of the ordinary. We are especially interested in how these issues relate to the question of the commons and the role collective life plays in various social imaginaries. Submissions that range across periods, theoretical orientations, and disciplines are welcome.

Music is language, too! We communicate through it, it inspires movements, it infuriates governments and authority figures, and it is the soundtrack of our personal lives. This session, the only music session at PAMLA, calls for papers which critically engage with any and all types of contemporary music and either the effects of music on society or how society inspires the creation of music.
The Masks of Modernity: Un/covering Global Modernisms
Proposal deadline: May 15, 2011.
This panel seeks to explore the relationship between syntax and the category of "voice" in modernism. Recent scholarship on voice, including Mladen Dolar's book "The Voice and Nothing More," often complicates the Derridean distinction between writing and speech by arguing for a multiplicity of voices (musical voice, feminine voice, voice as object, interior voices, democratic voice, societal voice, authoritarian voice, hiccup, cough), a vocal variety that is particularly registered in the modernist period through innovative syntax.
