Call For Papers:

A panel for the 16th annual Cultural Studies Conference on
"Entertainment" at Kansas State University, March 8-10, 2007.

(http://www.k-state.edu/english/symposium/)

"HOW TO BROW"

This panel seeks papers that explore how celebrities (open to any
culture, nation or time period) have used their status to impart
"highbrow" values onto their audiences.

Such individuals should have "celebrity" status before their
interventions into high culture; those who become celebrities based
solely on their demonstration of high culture should be excluded.

Parrhesia: a journal of critical philosophy

http://www.parrhesiajournal.org/

editors: Matthew Sharpe, Alex Murray, Jon Roffe

Michel Foucault’s last works tell us that parrhesia is the act of
fearlessly speaking the truth.To engage in parrhesia is never, however, a
‘neutral’ act. Parrhesia simultaneously incorporates aesthetic and
ethical dimensions. The parrhesiast is someone whose fidelity to the truth
becomes the pivot of a process of self-transformation.

Panel Title: The End of Tolerance?

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007 Baltimore, Maryland

As the new century began, 'tolerance' was supposed to pour healing oil on
American waters and enable some ground for a universal moral commitment. In
Europe, it was believed that the emergence of the European Union and the
"European Dream" would enable a culture of tolerance and a kindly
integration of The Other.

FLUX: The University of Melbourne School of Art History, Cinema,
Classics and Archaeology's (AHCCA) FINAL Postgraduate Association
Conference will be held on the 9th and 10th of November 2006.

To mark the end of AHCCA in 2006 the Postgraduate Association is
holding a two day conference on the subject of FLUX. With its
connotations of flow and fusion, of formation, dissolution and
reformulation, FLUX reflects both the interdisciplinary spirit of this
year's conference and the current status of AHCCA within The
University of Melbourne.
