The PETRA Conference brings
together different types of technology to address an important social
and healthcare issue: as the world's population ages, there is
growing interest in solutions for the in- home care of the elderly as
well as for the care of people with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and
other disabilities or traumas. PETRA (which means "stone" in Greek)
reflects the needs of the domestic environment, or "Oikos" as it was
known in ancient Greece, but from a technological perspective.
People's living environments are particularly important in an
increasingly crowded and complex world where the need for
inclusiveness and connectivity with the rest of the world is key.

Proposed Collection: Beyond "The Lottery": Critical Approaches to Shirley Jackson

Editor: Matthew B. Prickett, Longwood University

 

Deadline: October 30, 2009

Beyond "The Lottery" will be a peer-reviewed collection of critical materials examining the life and works of American author Shirley Jackson. The collection will be an opportunity for scholars to draw attention to lesser-known works of Jackson's, and expand on current scholarship in regards to more widely-known works. Ultimately, the collection will provide the author, and her works, with the critical attention that she has been denied until recently.
