Design Research with RMIT University Press: Call for Proposals

Joseph Gelfer

Our aim is to promote the publication of design research. Design is a core activity in many disciplines, yet there are few publishers who specialise in design-driven research. Research can be conducted through designing, and the process of designing also parallels "traditional" research in interesting ways. Designers have a way of thinking and communicating that is different to traditional researchers, but which is equally robust when applied to its own kind of questions.

This panel will interrogate the upsurge of the new(?) homicidal/suicidal religiosity in the West. Possible perspectives are political, sociological, activist, and philosophical. Approaches can cover the full range from critical analysis to prescriptions for action action. Some possible ideas, not intended to restrict ideas but to spur thinking on a few possible approaches:

- the suicide bomber as Kierkegaardian hero
- religious mania as a reaction to/ byproduct of Western modernity
- leaps of technological faith: the new high-tech cargo cults (Heaven's Gate, etc)
- the faith of Abraham vs the faith of Andrea Yates
- when religion comes to power: implications from the Taliban to the Christian Right

MSA 11: The Voicing of Poetry

In her study of voice, Adrianna Cavarero writes that "there is a realm of speech in which the sovereignty of language yields to that of the voice. I am talking, of course, about poetry." Taking Cavarero's philosophical cue as its jumping-off point, as well as Charles Bernstein's related call for "close listening," this panel welcomes papers that attend, in material ways, to the vocal performance of modern and postmodern poetries. That is, how do poets "voice" or perform their poetry? How does vocal performances inflect andor complicate textual readings of poems? Voice, then, for the purposes of this panel, is disarticulated from homogenizing metaphors of disembodied selfhood (i.e. finding your voice) and community (i.e. vox populi).

MSA 2009 (Nov 5-8, Montreal): Modernism and Scientific Knowledge Panel CFP

The first half of the twentieth century produced both scientific and cultural revolutions; what it also produced, as CP Snow pointed out in The Two Cultures, was the perception of an even greater divide between scientific and "non-scientific" knowledge.

But in fact, throughout the modernist period, scientific knowledge and non-scientific knowledge—like literature and literary criticism—proved to be inextricably linked. And this is what this panel hopes to explore: how 20th century science can inform our understanding of modernist literary practice and how literary modernism can change the way we discuss the history and practice of science.
