9th Global Conference
War, Civil Conflict, Security and Peace

Wednesday 7th November – Friday 9th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call for Papers:

What is the experience of war and what does it mean to us? Is war an extension of politics by other means? The locomotive of technology? Does a state of peace truly exist, or do we perpetually live in absentia bello ? Is humankind at war in its most natural state; or is human society – despite perceptions and ongoing conflict around the world today – actually moving toward an aversion to war and toward a state of peace? Are Human Rights illusory and is the quest for Human Security achievable?

The St. John's Humanities Review is a graduate student-run journal at St John's University in New York City that publishes book reviews, essays, and interviews on a broad range of topics in the arts and humanities.

We seek scholarly essays, book reviews, and interviews under the broad heading of Nationalism: Roots and Transgressions.

The approach may be primarily sociological and historical, or literary in nature.

CFP for Edited Collection: Primary Stein (Abstracts by May 15, 2012)

Janet Boyd (Fairleigh Dickinson University) and Sharon Kirsch (Arizona State University)

The overwhelming success of Gertrude Stein's The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas finally confirmed Stein's celebrity status in the United States in 1933. Yet she lamented that she had become known less as an important author than as the host of a Parisian salon in which famous writers and European painters gathered amidst her collection of modern art. Her earlier, more challenging writing continued to go unnoticed and unpublished despite the wide public appeal of the autobiography and the success of Virgil Thomson's production of Stein's opera Four Saints in Three Acts in 1934.

Transilvania University of Brasov, Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics

2nd Conference on Theoretical and Applied Linguistics: Structure, Use, and Meaning - SUM 2012, September 20-22, 2012, Brasov, Romania.

The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of theoretical and applied linguistics with a view to placing language in an interdisciplinary dialogue and promoting the merging of present-day approaches to the study of language. At the same time, this conference would be an opportunity to re-enforce the dialogue on research and collaboration in academic and professional contexts. Such collaboration, in turn, is fundamental to the design and implementation of effective pedagogy, assessment and curricula.
