Is the tragic an adequate category for thinking about the nature of
contemporary conflicts, and their cycles of revenge, violence and
claims to justice and state legitimacy? Was 9/11 a tragedy? Is the
Israel/Palestine conflict tragic? Iraq? Afghanistan? The list goes on.
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 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.
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.

Composing Live(s): Writing the Self and the Other within the Disciplines

"To withdraw myself from myself has ever been my sole, my entire, my sincere motive in scribbling at all." —Lord Byron
Writing about lives, writing that lives, or writing that comes to us live from an immediate, connected source shapes how we as scholars and teachers conceive of ourselves and others. Writing works within and out of academia to continually (re)define what is and is not important, what is and is not canonized, and what is and is not ignored within many discourse communities.
