updated: 
Monday, November 9, 2009 - 12:37am
Sara Sullivan/Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies

The Iowa Journal of Cultural Studies seeks essays on cultural representations and experiences of labor and work, from the perspectives of the humanities and interpretive social sciences. Theoretical engagements are also of interest. While this call is not limited to interests of any period, we seek topics with relevance or insight into contemporary experiences and constructions of work.

Possible topics:
- Cultural (literature, film, TV, etc.) representations of work
- Artists whose own work is reflective on questions of labor
- Cultures of labor and the workplace
- Discourses of labor in media
- Theoretical engagements with labor and work (Virno, Hardt & Negri, Badiou, etc)

Certain conditions have defined the beginning of the 21st century: imperialist war for control of the Middle East and Afghanistan, super exploitation of labor and global resources like the food crisis of 2008, deep-rooted racism and sexism, and the conspicuous disparity between the voraciousness of corporate accumulation and the deprivation of basic necessities of entire populations, as the environmental catastrophe of Katrina and the recent capitalist crisis reveals.

Disability and the Enlightenment

Dwight Codr/ South Central Society for Eighteenth Century Studies

Although scholars have long recognized the centrality of the body in the cultural productions of "Enlightenment" England -- whether it be in terms of empiricism or sensibility, in the context of acting on stage or walking the streets of London -- the history of the disabled body has played a conspicuously minor role in these investigations. One of the reasons for the absence of a vigorous discussion of disability in the eighteenth century may have to do with the belief that such a discussion might be anachronistic, eighteenth-century England having had no operative category of disability.

The Visual Imagination: Across Boundaries

updated: 
Sunday, November 8, 2009 - 10:55am
4th Annual International ACSA Conference, The Visual Imagination: Across Boundaries

Imagination has more than often been conceived of as an art of forming mental images,particularly in relation to objects and phenomena not completely perceived in reality. But if imagination resorts to images then does not the notion of the visual imagination imply a sense of redundancy? If, on the other hand, the word "visual" refers us to the sphere of sensory perception then how can we utilize the sense of sight to arrive at a realistic representation of illusion? In what sense then are images visual and in what sense are they imaginary?
