New Deadline For Submissions: April 1, 2007

Call for Papers: ELN 45.2, Fall/Winter 2007, "Queer Space"

Volume 45.2 of the new ELN (Fall/Winter 2007) seeks to make a radical
intervention in the discourses of both spatiality and sexuality studies.
Contributors will explore gay, lesbian, bisexual, and queer definitions of
space not only in relation to the built environment but in response to a range
of boundaries and sites. We invite analyses of conceptual, geographical,
discursive, virtual, and metaphoric understandings of queer space, welcoming in
particular interdisciplinary essays that move beyond extant work on the topic
that deals primarily with male experience.

The Transforming Body in popular culture

University of Southampton, UK, 2007

There has recently been an intensification of interest in the changing body
in popular culture, from films and writing focusing on the makeover
phenomenon or gender reassignment, to reality TV programmes detailing surgical
alteration, to health-, celebrity- and horror-focused narratives presenting
transformation sentimentally or monstrously. These contemporary perspectives are
embedded in a longer history of transformation stories in
classical/post-classical cinema, literature, photography, art and performance.

Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory

Theory Faith Culture

— an international interdisciplinary conference —

Cardiff University

4 – 6 July 2007

Second Call for Papers

Religion is one of the most contested aspects of twenty-first century life. How can we understand and theorise the power of religion in the constitution of subjects and in its social, cultural and political manifestations?

This conference will look at the interface between Theory, Faith and Culture. It will explore a range of theoretical approaches to the subject and attempt to further our understanding of some of the most important and pressing issues of the day.
