There are strong indications that a significant transformation is underway in the so-called “Humanities.”  After a period of intense crisis and uncertainty, in which the human sciences have frequently sought to mirror or approach the hard sciences, the beginning of the twenty-first century seems to witness a broad renewal of disciplines, approaches and methodologies. From the questioning of its traditional foundations, the Humanities are reinventing themselves by a broad reconfiguration of its borders and even of the notion of “humanity” that served as its cornerstone.

At the 2005 annual meeting of the Conference on College Composition and Communication, Gregory L. Ulmer reminded conference-goers of the importance of understanding our relationships to writing and print, the apparatus from which our identities, perspectives, theories and practices emerge.  Over the course of thirty years and eight books, Ulmer has called for us not only to be aware of the emerging apparatus he dubbed “electracy” but also to help invent and shape it.

Shakespeare and Narrative Theory 

Deadline Feb. 10th

Call for papers exploring the connection between Shakespeare and narrative theory for a volume of essays entitled Shakespeare, Storytelling and Narrative Theory. Papers should explore the productive dialogue between Shakespeare’s work and the field of narrative, and aim to make a dual contribution to both areas of study. Abstracts (250 words) should outline the interpretative problems, the narrative theoretical contributions that the papers seek to make (revising or extending and established theory, developing a new concept, etc) and the connections to Shakespesare's oeuvre.
