UPDATE: New Formalism Collection

Extended Deadline 11/15

We invite contributions to a proposed collection of essays that examines
new formalism as a vehicle of literary inquiry. We see new formalism as a
literary, cultural movement that harkens back to new criticism, Russian
formalism, and structuralism, while embracing cultural theory and actively
drawing on new historicist methodologies. Because that’s a lot to cover, we
think it appropriate and timely to take another look at contemporary
literary/cultural theory and to call on scholars to reconsider the ways in
which they approach, analyze, and write (about) texts.

CFP: Bernard Stiegler and the Question of Technics

"What has been neglected and repressed by cognitivism, as well as by
philosophy as a whole, going back to Plato's first gesture of thought, is
the place of technics in general in life, technics as the condition of life
that knows".

- Bernard Stiegler, "Desire and Knowledge: the Dead Seize the Living"
