Craft Critique Culture

What does it mean to transpose? What might it mean to shift, adapt, migrate, translate, or even steal across the boundaries of genre, medium, discipline, culture or nation? Is a melody, a sentence, a method or a concept the same after transposition?

This year's keynote presenters are Kathryn Laity and Lori Branch. Kathryn Laity, Associate Professor of English (Medieval) at The College of Saint Rose, NY, works across medieval literature and culture, film, creative writing and new media with publications including scholarly work, fiction, poetry, column writing, translation, a play and even a comic book. Her talk will be titled "Converting Monks into Friars: Public Scholars in the 21st Century."

Call for Papers: How do writers represent the work of being women—where "work" is defined broadly to encompass not only paid labor inside and outside the home, but also the work of performing femininity and domesticity? How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose?

claims to justice and state legitimacy? Was 9/11 a tragedy? Is the
Israel/Palestine conflict tragic? Iraq? Afghanistan? The list goes on.

Special Issue on Cloud Computing and Dynamic Resource Allocation for Multimedia Applications

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2011 - 9:50am
International Journal of Digital Multimedia Broadcasting

Recently, cloud computing technology has offered great opportunities for multimedia applications. The cloud computers, the clients, and the networks connecting them constitute a client-cloud multimedia system, in which the cloud computers handle the data-intensive computing tasks, and the clients become much more lightweight and mobile. The performance of the client-cloud multimedia system can be improved by jointly optimizing the resources in the cloud, at each client, and along the network path. However, a multimedia system is essentially dynamic due to the source dynamics, the channel dynamics, and the topology dynamics. The source dynamics are represented by the time-varying rate-distortion characteristics of the encoded multimedia content.

The Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Program, City University of New York

The Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy seeks scholarly work that explores the intersection of technology with teaching, learning, and research. Because we publish in a digital format, we are interested in contributions that take advantage of the affordances of digital platforms in creative ways.

Submissions that focus on pedagogy should balance theoretical frameworks with practical considerations of how new technologies might be employed in the classroom. Research-based articles should include discussions of approach, method, and analysis.

Empathy, Sympathy, and Other Minds (MLA 2012, proposal deadline 3/6/11)

updated: 
Monday, January 31, 2011 - 11:35pm
Meghan Hammond / New York University

This is a proposed special session for the 2012 MLA convention in Seattle. Empathy and sympathy are capacious terms that have rich and overlapping conceptual histories in philosophy, psychology, aesthetics, and political thought. This panel will explore the ties between empathy/sympathy and the epistemological concerns of literature. What solutions, and problems, do empathy and sympathy introduce to the production of knowledge of the world (especially knowledge of other minds)? What do empathy and sympathy have to do with representational difficulty? How do they influence narrative or poetic innovation? Proposals for papers on any literary period or genre are welcome. Interdisciplinary and cognitive approaches are particularly welcome.
