Immaterial Materialities: Materiality and Interactivity in Art and Architecture
Materiality has recently claimed centre stage in architectural discourse and practice, yet its critical meaning is ever receding. Tropes like material honesty, digital materiality, material responsiveness and dematerialisation mark out an interdisciplinary field where scientific fact and artistic experimentation interact, and where what in fact constitutes materiality and immateriality is constantly re-imagined.
We are happy to announce the theme for the next issue (Vol. V, No 1) from Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities (ISSN 0975-2935). From the year 2013 onwards, we will include thrust areas in the issues along with regular articles and book reviews on other areas in the form of open issues. In other words, there will be Open issues with particular thrust areas. For the next issue the thrust area is "Recent Achievements in World Literature". However, articles and book reviews on Indian Writings in English will not be accepted.
Topics for contribution include:
• Electronic literature
• Other relevant forms

Although modern technologies largely benefit the individual and have changed the nature of social and political interactions, they have also served to make for a more dangerous world inasmuch as our lives are revealed for public consumption, and privacy becomes a disputed right. Many writers and artists have exposed the benefits and perils of technology.

For our inaugural issue, we are seeking submissions of graduate student work from around the world on the topic of mimesis versus invention. The Rat's Mouth Review, as a journal, seeks to invent itself, few would argue that it is not doing so in a mimetic fashion. We emulate other journals in order to forge our own identity and we do so with the hope of being "of [great] worth." To accomplish this, we require your contributions.
Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the publication of _Waverley_, the Lyrica Society is sponsoring a session on the interconnection between the works of Sir Walter Scott and music.

We invite 250-350 word proposals by March 1st, 2013 on any aspect of Scott and music. Send them to DrJSDailey@aol.com, and put "Scott MLA 2014" in the subject line.
