Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts: The 'Canadian Fantastic" Call for Papers

Towards the end of "We Have Met the Alien (And It Is Us)" (1985), Judith Merril concludes "after months of immersion in Canadian futures, that there is something one just might call a Canadian consciousness, and that this unique sensibility of accepting-and-coping might just have something of value to offerto the uncertain future of a planet in perilous pain" (23).

[UPDATE] "Curiosities" Grad Conference - Deadline Extended to Dec. 18th

updated: 
Friday, December 9, 2011 - 5:49pm
Tufts Graduate Humanities Conference

What makes an object, a person, or a pursuit a "curiosity"? Are curiosities abnormal and rare? Are they always the extraordinarily strange, or can they be an everyday oddity? Enmeshed in a larger set of notions that often pit the social against the individual, the normative against the taboo, and the expected against the surprising, curiosities generate questions about desire, taste, knowledge, and inquiry.

5th International Deleuze Studies Conference (June 25-27, 2012), themed panel "Deleuze and Modernist Literature"

updated: 
Friday, December 9, 2011 - 4:10pm
Deleuze Studies Conference

We seek papers that examine the ways Deleuze's reading of modernist literature influenced his philosophy for a proposed themed panel at the 5th International Deleuze Studies Conference, hosted by Tulane University. Particularly interesting would be papers that undertake a study of modernist writers who have been comparatively neglected (alongside those like Kafka, Proust, and Beckett) in the field of Deleuze studies, such as Alfred Jarry, Virginia Woolf, Antonin Artaud, D.H. Lawrence, H.P. Lovecraft, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Henry James, William Faulkner, and Jorge Luis Borges, among others.

[The editors are pleased to report that this project has already received favorable attention from a scholarly press and, in order to present as wide a net of subject coverage as possible, are especially interested at this point in receiving submissions on topics related to film, television, performance and visual arts, though submissions from all genres are still welcome up to the deadline]

Patrice Evans, who blogs under the moniker "The Assimilated Negro," published an online essay on the ebonyjet.com website late in 2007 that lamented the seeming lack of satire in mainstream black culture:

[UPDATE] Graduate Conference The Violence of the Image, April 26-27, 2012

updated: 
Friday, December 9, 2011 - 12:40pm
Department of Comparative Literature, State University at Buffalo

Although the tradition of thinking about the image in philosophy and aesthetics goes all the way back to Plato and Aristotle there have recently been numerous critical approaches that depart from this tradition and envision the image as neither a copy of a copy nor as an ideological formation. The Graduate Conference "The Violence of the Image" seeks to further these new insights into the nature of the image.
