This interdisciplinary student conference endeavors to bring about discussion and ideas on the current themes of occupation expressing themselves in political demonstrations and movements
throughout our nation and the global community. Exploring these themes in literature, film, and rhetoric provides a textual landscape for the creative expression of occupation which foregrounds and/or responds to the world-wide movements of the early 21st century as well as addressing historical ideas of occupation. Traditional as well as novel approaches to this theme are encouraged.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 1. The twentieth annual MCLLM conference
welcomes submissions for our March 30 and 31 event in DeKalb, IL. Our
theme is Evolution: How Does the Old Create the New? It is inspired by
the work of Cary Nelson, our keynote speaker.
We are particularly interested in papers that examine the evolutionary
aspects of literature, language, media, or culture. As always, MCLLM
will also accept papers on any aspect of literature, language, media, or
culture from scholars at all stages in their careers.
The John Cage Centennial is upon us. To celebrate Cage's legacy, The New York Public Library will soon launch John Cage Unbound - A Living Archive, an online multimedia resource devoted to the life and work of America's most influential composer. In partnership with the John Cage Trust and C.F. Peters, John Cage Unbound will feature select digital images of Cage's music manuscripts, correspondence, programs, photographs, and ephemera drawn from the vast holdings of NYPL's Music Division. The centerpiece of the project, however, will be a rich video archive of John Cage interpretation with a special emphasis on the preparation and performance of Cage's work, including those works that are primarily language based.
The MU Cross-Disciplinary Project (formerly known as "The Body Project") invites all interested scholars and related researchers to submit proposals for our fifth annual conference. The 2012 theme is "Animals in Society." We welcome proposals for research or creative projects, including artworks, literature, performances, posters, papers and/or panels, and various other forms that escape our imagination but may live in yours.
