The InterDISCIPLINARY Journal of Portuguese Diaspora Studies (IJPDS) is an online, as well as printed, peer-reviewed academic journal, to be published annually, and in affiliation with Anderson University, Indiana. The first volume of the journal is scheduled for fall 2012. The editors of the IJPDS welcome contributions from scholars in the humanities and social sciences, as well as writers and poets working in areas of the Portuguese diaspora within a transnational sense of community and self. We are particularly interested in proposals from a wide array of scholarly proveniences, approaches and perspectives that embrace a construct of Portuguese diaspora identity whose discourses and ideas travel across time and space.

Marxian Cartographies: Mapping/Re-drawing the Trace

Anthony C. Cooke/The Marxist Literary Group

This panel will consider Marxism in all of its various manifestations over time, as well as attempts to imagine how it might travel and take on new shapes in the future. How has Marxism traveled, via fiction, poetry, or as an ideology, over time? What sort of geographical or theoretical traces has it left behind, particularly where it is proclaimed that we are "beyond" Marxism? Does memory, whether in the present or as hope for the future, play a role? Is it possible to construct an atlas of Marxism? Can one claim Marxism in any of its forms (Post-Marxism, New Historicism, and so on) in an era of increasing corporatization of the academy?

Bullying is a global problem. Whether it takes place in the schoolyard; the board room; the corridors of academe; a detention centre for alleged terrorists; a government office, or cyber space; and whether it involves insult, physical assault or manipulation of the environment with the intention of making another person's life intolerable, bullying involves the abuse of power. Everyone is affected by it, whether directly or indirectly.

Solitary Spectacles

Proposed Panel for the Modernist Studies Association's 14th Conference, "Modernism and Spectacle," October 18-21, 2012, in Las Vegas.

Modernist writers experimented to find both the essence and the furthest limits of their genres, as well as how their genres intersected with each other and with the other arts. This panel will investigate how modernist writers used spectacle within genres that normally don't lend themselves to spectacle: in what ways, to what ends, and to what effects did Modernist writers use spectacle (theatrical, painterly, or musical means) in their novels and poems – in works understood to be usually read silently and solitarily?

9th Global Conference
War, Civil Conflict, Security and Peace

Wednesday 7th November – Friday 9th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call for Papers:

What is the experience of war and what does it mean to us? Is war an extension of politics by other means? The locomotive of technology? Does a state of peace truly exist, or do we perpetually live in absentia bello ? Is humankind at war in its most natural state; or is human society – despite perceptions and ongoing conflict around the world today – actually moving toward an aversion to war and toward a state of peace? Are Human Rights illusory and is the quest for Human Security achievable?
