Determining Form: Creative Non-Fiction Journeys is a two-day conference being held at Glasgow University (June 11-12) which will provide a venue for the exploration and discussion of creative non-fiction within (and outwith) academia. Creative non-fiction encompasses a wide range of genres, including biography, autobiography, travel writing, memoir, journalism and essay writing. Works such as In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers and The Next American Essay edited by John D'Agata investigate literary spaces with a focus on the journey rather than the destination.

In these past years the musical genre has once again gained momentum and come back into the spotlight thanks to very successful projects. Be it cinema, theatre or TV, or even the web, singing and dancing are the new rallying cry. The influence of this genre on the media landscape can't be ignored.
The next Ol3Media issue seeks brief papers that can be the springboard for reflections on this topic regarding sundry productions, and about both those shows that are "pure" musicals and those that use some of the elements of the genre.
The Institute of African American Research (IAAR) will offer a $1000 prize for the best cross-disciplinary, collaborative effort in the Arts and Humanities that yields a historically-grounded script on a topic of African American research. Established and aspiring scholars and writers with expertise in creative writing, literary criticism, philosophy, history, communications, performance studies, sociocultural anthropology, and other relevant disciplines are encouraged to apply. Submitted scripts will be considered for production. There are no limits on the historical time frame or genre of writing. Scripts should be submitted electronically and in hard-copy format to the IAAR by March 1, 2010.
"We must more than ever stand on the side of human rights. We need human rights. We are in need of them and they are in need, for there is always a lack, a shortfall, a falling short, an insufficiency; human rights are never sufficient." (Jacques Derrida, Philosophy in a Time of Terror)
If human rights are insufficient yet necessary, we must then ask what to do with "rights." This conference will explore historical and theoretical definitions, constructions, and performative notions of rights. How do texts challenge predominant conceptual narratives of rights? In what ways does literature explore notions of rights outside of the juridical realm? Can we have a discourse on rights that exceeds the anthropomorphic field?
