The Department of French at NYU
announces its annual Graduate Student Conference:

… but is it art?

March 8th and 9th, 2013

The Department of French at NYU is pleased to invite papers which explore how art is defined, institutionalized and practiced in the Francophone world. We are interested in how boundaries are established and shift between the spheres of art and non-art, and will welcome submissions that deal with all artistic genres and media, spanning all historical periods. Papers are welcome to focus on individual authors or works, or to approach the topic more broadly.

[UPDATE] First Annual Fandom and Neomedia (FANS) Conference

Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Association

We are pleased to announce a CFP for submissions to the First Annual Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Conference in Dallas, TX, on 1 and 2 June 2013. We are privileged to have Helen McCarthy as our keynote speaker.

Fandom for us includes all aspects of being a fan, ranging from being a passive audience member to producing one's own parafictive or interfictive creations. Neomedia includes both new media as it is customarily defined as well as new ways of using and conceptualizing traditional media.

[UPDATE] Keynote speakers: The Arts of Attention Conference, Budapest, Hungary (Feb. 28, 2013)

updated: 
Thursday, December 20, 2012 - 11:44am
Károli Gáspár University

Attention is increasingly regarded by cognitive scientists and evolutionary anthropologists as a faculty whose development in human animals is constitutive of what it means to be human. This conference invites papers on (1) the ways in which literary texts encode this faculty (tropologically, discoursively, narratologically, ideologically), and/or (2) the ways in which theories of reading have recognized or underestimated the arts and techniques of attention. We particularly invite contributions developing or dismissing the suggestion that literature offers privileged insight into the function of attention as a possibility condition for the imagination, for agency, and for community formation.
