The New York Public Library is pleased to offer Short Term Research Fellowships to support scholars from outside the New York metropolitan area engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research. Individuals needing to conduct on-site research in the Library's special collections to support projects in the humanities, business and the arts are welcome to apply. Preference is given to scholars whose work is based on materials in the NYPL research collections, especially when those materials are unique; fellowships are normally not granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library.

We need new figurations for the humanities. We need to explore intellectual pathways in which critique goes together with creativity. We need critical practices that, defamiliarizing consolidated patterns of thinking, escort us out of the safety zones in which anthropocentrism, Eurocentrism, sexism, speciesism, ableism, constitute the normal discourse of our cultural paradigms. These inspiring ideas were expressed by the philosopher Rosi Braidotti in her keynote lecture on "Posthumanist Paradoxes" held in Zurich at the 2014 Conference of the American Association for Italian Studies.
Deadline for Submission: March 15, 2015

Dirty Talk:The Forms and Language of Pleasure
The 11th Annual Graduate Conference on Language and Literature (MadLit)
at the University of Wisconsin-Madison // February 26-28, 2015w
Dirty talk. Guilty pleasure. Darkest desire. Our everyday discourse is littered with phrases that shun or shame the pleasurable. Yet seeking pleasure, as fig- ures from Chaucer to Freud have argued, is a basic human instinct. Scholarship across a variety of fields has gravitated toward humanity's complex relationship with pleasure.
Looking for additional participant(s) for "Arriving in the 20th Century: Public Speaking and Literary Resistance" panel at 2015 MELUS conference (April 9-12, Athens, GA). Please respond with 250-word abstract and two-page cv by December 12 so that we may meet the MELUS submission deadline of December 15; send to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Broadly speaking, papers could focus on the work of literary/political figures and their writings, public speeches, or performances pertaining to uplift, belonging, citizenship, assimilation, or other related topic, at the turn of the 20th century.
Traditional distinctions between "highbrow" and "lowbrow" are not sufficient to describe the cultural production of our times. We live—and have been living for a long time—in the age of "nobrow," which intertwines art and entertainment into a complex yet identifiable mode of cultural practice. Our increasingly global, digital, and culturally eclectic world is dominated by endless varieties of nobrow culture. Yet, with few exceptions, the historical nature, aesthetic complexity, and social interpretation of this cultural formation have largely escaped critical analysis.
