UPDATE--Being Erica and Philosophy CFP (Deadline: 10-1-10)

updated: 
Friday, September 24, 2010 - 1:11pm
Dr. Heath A. Diehl

Since its premiere on January 5, 2009, the Canadian Broadcasting Company's Being Erica has delighted fans in its native Canada and gained a considerable following as a syndicated export in a number of other countries, including Australia, Mexico, the Netherlands, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. At the same time, the program seems to have confounded many media critics. On one hand, precious little "writing" about the program actually exists despite its swift release to DVD (usually a sign of both popularity and potential profitability—both typically strong indicators of media interest as well as scholarly pursuit).

Iranian Voices Across the Globe

updated: 
Friday, September 24, 2010 - 2:45am
Sanaz Fotouhi, University of New South Wales

This collection of scholarly essays for an edited volume aims to explore the writings of the Iranian diaspora, particularly outside of the North American context. While in recent years, due the rising number of books in English, there have been a few studies focusing on Iranian writing emerging from America in English, far less scholarship has been dedicated to the study of Iranian writing across the globe and in other languages. This collection, therefore, focuses on Iranian fiction or autobiographical writings across the globe and various languages.

Rethinking Baudrillard and Feminist Theory [deadline 11/1/2010] ACLA 2011, Vancouver, 3/31-4/3/2011

updated: 
Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 12:42am
Panel proposal for American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting

From Jane Gallop's 'French Theory and the Seduction of Feminism', Meaghan Morris' 'Room 101 or A Few Worst Things in The World' to Douglas Kellner's 'Baudrillard's Affront to Feminism,' the French sociologist Jean Baudrillard has been widely condemned in the 80s and 90s as an anti-feminist philosopher. This criticism makes some sense: Baudrillard's major mistake has indeed been his caricaturizing of feminism and feminist theory as mere emancipation or equal rights discourse.
