Decades of the American Century (April 1-2)

updated: 
Thursday, December 23, 2010 - 4:50pm
U.S. Literatures and Cultures Consortium

In discussions of the 20th century, we often use decades as a means of organizing history, but decades come to signify more than simple ten-year blocks of time. Periods like the "roaring twenties" or the "swinging sixties" carry many connotations. The invocation of a decade can hearken back to specific events that took place at the time, but also to particular sets of historically contingent cultural norms and behaviors.

Representing Animals in Britain (Deadline for proposals 2/1/2011, Conference 10/20/2011)

Wednesday, December 22, 2010 - 1:12am
University of Rennes 2

Britain is traditionally seen as a nation of animal lovers and evidence for this has cropped up with mounting regularity over the past two centuries. Yet, the essentially self-congratulatory idea that Britain is "a nation of animal lovers" and that their representations of animals are unlike any other people's is currently being questioned, in both activist and academic circles. This conference, which will welcome the healthy confrontation of interdisciplinary viewpoints, invites in-depth examination of the representation(s) of animals in the fields of history, philosophy, sociology, politics, law, cultural studies, the visual arts and the media. How have animals been imagined, portrayed, idealised, regarded or disregarded, even effaced?

[UPDATE] Revolution! A Regional Graduate Student Literature Conference. April 2, 2011

Christina Hauck, Department of English, Kansas State University

At our inaugural Kansas State University Regional Graduate Student Conference in Literature, we will explore the ways in which revolutions of all kinds have affected (and continue to affect) our discipline. Revolution! is inspired by Jasbir Puar's groundbreaking work, Terrorist Assemblages: Homonationalism in Queer Times, which critiques contemporary configurations of sexuality, race, gender, nation, class, and ethnicity. Using Puar's work as a touchstone for revolutionary readings, our conference will examine representations of revolution in its various forms—cultural, political, textual, and theoretical—in British and American literature composed during any period.

This winter break I (English Instructor at the Edinboro University of Pennsylvania) have found myself watching Buffy, Stargate, as well as new film releases like Splice, Resident Evil, and Shrek through Netscape. It is frequently difficult for me to find a film on Netscape that I haven't seen before and they have most of them. My independent Pennsylvania Literary Journal, http://sites.google.com/site/pennsylvaniajournal, just finished an issue titled British Literature, for which we also included one general essay called, "Chronicle of a Movie Extra: When Background Becomes Foreground," by Dr.

Jason Farman / Future Internet Journal

In the first lines of Howard Rheingold's seminal book on pervasive computing, Smart Mobs, he notes an observation he had in Japan that changed the way he thought about mobile technologies: "The first signs of the next shift began to reveal themselves to me on a spring afternoon. That was when I began to notice people on the streets of Tokyo staring at their mobile phones instead of talking to them" (2002, p. xi). This shift from using a mobile device as a voice communication medium toward usages that focus on data (specifically the "mobile Internet") heralds the era of physical and pervasive computing culture.
