The present pleasure,
By revolution low'ring, thus become
The opposite of itself

If, in the near future, all data, movies, etc., were to become instantly available, if the delay were to become minimal so that the very notion of "searching for" (a book, a film …) were to lose meaning, would this instant availability not suffocate desire?

For its 2012 issue, Criterion (an undergraduate and master's level student journal) anticipates reserving space for up to four essays exploring issues that relate to transnational American studies. To provoke thoughts on this topic, Dr. Jared Hickman of Johns Hopkins University has provided a prompt, "(Meta) Critiques of 'Transnational American Studies'." Authors should not attempt to address all of the issues raised by Dr. Hickman; rather, Criterion hopes this prompt will serve as a springboard for creative and well-focused essays on relevant issues and texts.
Criterion seeks original, well-researched, and intellectually rigorous essays written from diverse critical perspectives and about texts from any time period or literary tradition. We encourage upper-division undergraduates and first- and second-year masters students to submit. Submissions are peer-reviewed by a selection board at BYU, and final decisions are made by the journal's two Editors-in-Chief in consultation with a faculty advisor. Essays may be submitted on a year-round basis, but Criterion is currently soliciting submissions for its 2012 issue, scheduled for publication in April of 2012. The submission deadline for the 2012 issue is 20 January 2012. Essays received after this deadline will be considered for the 2013 issue.
The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches to literature and the development of ecocriticism as a scholarly discipline in the 1970s did not remain very long the prerogative of the Anglo-American literature and scholarship. Other national literatures and literary studies have been rapidly developing their views on the connections between literature and ecology; these are oftem based on different premises and follow their own respective literary traditions.

The official reaction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to The Book of Mormon, the musical from Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park and Robert Lopez of Avenue Q, consists of a single sentence: "The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people's lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ."
But the musical has done much more than merely attempt to entertain people for an evening: it regularly brings audiences to their feet in a wild ovation at its end, and it earned a whopping 14 Tony nominations, winning in nine of the categories it was nominated in, including "Best Musical."
Deadline: Please send abstracts of 150 words to firstname.lastname@example.org* by January 10th, 2010
