We are pleased to announce a CFP for submissions to the First Annual Fandom and Neomedia Studies (FANS) Conference in Dallas, TX, on 1 and 2 June 2013. We are privileged to have Helen McCarthy as our keynote speaker.
Fandom for us includes all aspects of being a fan, ranging from being a passive audience member to producing one's own parafictive or interfictive creations. Neomedia includes both new media as it is customarily defined as well as new ways of using and conceptualizing traditional media.
We are pleased to announce a CFP for articles and reviews for the first edition of our online peer-reviewed journal, The Phoenix Papers. We welcome articles on fandom and media topics as well as reviews of anime, manga, books, movies, video games, TV series, web series, musical albums, performances, and other pop culture media products. We encourage scholars at all levels of achievement, whether affiliated with an institution or independent, to contribute to our journal. We accept submissions throughout the year. However, to be included in our January 2013 edition, you must submit your completed article or review by 15 December 2012. Articles may be on any topic relevant to US or global fandom and/or media studies.

"Feminist-infused participatory and action research clarifies the mediated nature of all knowledge construction and exemplifies 'ways of knowing' that are frequently absent from mainstream, top-down theory building." M.B. Lykes and R. Herschberg
The twin issues of religion and development have had a long history of engagement in the humanities. From the perspectives of history and international relations, language and literature, and theatre arts, there have been many far-reaching scholarly enquiries into the complex relationship between the two and the roles they have played in helping to facilitate or to hinder personal, national and global progress.
MANIFEST, a new annual independent print journal on American architecture and urbanism, is requesting text, project, and photographic proposals for its first issue entitled, "Looking Inward." Edited by Anthony Acciavatti, Justin Fowler, and Dan Handel, and supported in part by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts, MANIFEST was founded to initiate a critical conversation about the state of American architecture, its cities, and its hinterland, tackling head-on what others have abandoned.
The Women's and Gender Studies Program at Morgan State University, in conjunction with B'More Proud and the Maryland State Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, invites scholars to participate in a one-day academic symposium.

The symposium is open to scholars in every discipline whose work is pertinent to Queer Studies and/or the LGBTQ community.
Call for Papers for nº23, "Crisis, Security, Politics", of Relaciones Internacionales Journal
to be published in June 2013.
In recent history, and especially since September 11 2001, new Security Studies perspectives have achieved significant academic success. Despite "security" having continually been present in academic research, throughout the 1990s and the beginning of the 21st century, security has become increasingly visible on the political agenda and in academic debates. We have witnessed theoretical developments, diverging from the dominant American perspectives on national security, in other parts of the world including Europe.
