Special Issue of Criticism on 'Critical Air Studies'

updated: 
Saturday, November 17, 2012 - 10:54am
Christopher Schaberg / Loyola University New Orleans

Now accepting submissions for a special issue of Criticism shaped around the topic 'Critical Air Studies'.

From the poetics of airborne perspectives to the halting grind of airport delays; from the politics of full body scanners to pressures on labor unions and massive corporate mergers; from narratives about contemporary globalization to the early instrumentalities of Empire; from serving as staging grounds for ecological crisis to acting as reserves for certain performances of gender & sexuality; from the secret machinations of drone warfare to the banalities of in-flight WiFi—air travel finds itself at the nexus of myriad popular conversations and charged discourses.

REVISTA LIBERIA - CALL FOR PAPERS

DEADLINE: January 15th

SUBMISSIONS: http://www.revistaliberia.org

Revista Liberia will be publishing its first issue in May 2013.

Our first issue aims to discuss the intertwining discourses of

history and literature. We would like to explore how Cultural

Studies and Cultural History merge and diverge: how recent

academic cultural research seems to be closely linked to the

ideology of postmodernism and its conceptualization of

"history" -from its thesis of the end of history to its apparent

disregard for the historical dimension of cultural phenomena.

Tell me a story, show me the world
The Department of English at the Zurich University of Teacher Education is organising a conference to celebrate story-telling and reading as a window on the world and as a key stimulus for learning a foreign language.
The two-day conference aims to provide insights into the state of the art of children's and young adults' literature and into new developments in story-related methodology at primary and secondary level. With input from authors, illustrators, storytellers, teachers, researchers and teacher educators, we hope to make our conference as authentic and lively as possible.

Deadline for proposals: January 6, 2013

Keynote speaker: Chandan Reddy (University of Washington), author of Freedom with Violence: Race, Sexuality and the U.S. State (Duke, 2011)

This conference will explore the many definitions of cruelty, both banal and extraordinary. Cruelty can be inherent in the ways that we perceive, interact with and take pleasure in one another and ourselves. At times it cannot be distinguished from violence. Cruelty is lived and experienced differently across boundaries, borders, bodies, and time periods. It continues to spread and mutate with globalization in the 21st century.
