This series will address and assess the transformations in the concept of the "human" across the human sciences over the past half-century. The approach adopted is to single out two concepts that can align disparate inquiries, from the post- structuralist critiques of humanism dating back to the 1960s, to more recent studies, driven by both speculation and controlled laboratory experimentation into human cognition. These two concepts are "deferral" and "discipline." Each concept directs us toward a range of issues, intellectual and ethical, and the possible relations between the two concepts suggest further lines of inquiry.

While musical biography has recently received scholarly attention through an array of insightful research, the sheer breadth of possibilities for the study of biography (and biographies) in relation to music means that the broad field remains rich in untapped investigative potential. This conference will provide a forum for consolidated critical discussion on both the content of musical biography (national trends and ideologies; myths and mythology) and its form (narrative technique and meaning). It will aim to open up interdisciplinary avenues of enquiry across a wide range of subjects and time periods, in the domains of classical music, popular music, and ethnomusicology alike.
The Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts(SLSA) is sponsoring a panel at the upcoming ASLE Biennial conference (website: http://www.aslebiennialconference.com/) on this general subject. Approaches may be critical or creative (or a continuum of both) and could include -- but are not limited to -- the following topics:
Science and the poetics of process and/as place (including new poetic work concerned with science)
Science and Poetics as intersecting processes and/or onto-epistemologies
Fluid ontologies and hard realities (in scientific outcomes, ecological limits, etc.)

Abstracts are being accepted for a ground-breaking edited anthology on African-American and/or Afrocentric approaches to teaching actors and directing actors, complete with a foreword by leading African-American Studies scholar Molefi K. Asante. According to Asante, Afrocentricity has been defined by its progenitors as both an analytical process and actionable perspective that positions African-descended people as subjects and agents in the world (2013).
