American Comparative Literature Association

Hannah Arendt argued that labor is anti-political because its collective nature precludes the possibility of individual consciousness and because it is performed in the name of the economy of the household. Similarly, scholarship on labor and class has been accused in the past of being too invested in the problem of economic distribution to the detriment of identity and political recognition.

Florida Conference of Historians

Over the last thirty years there has been an increasing interest in media, arts, and culture as means to understand the national experience. The complexity of social, political, and economic ideas represented in comic books, videogames, online media have joined studies of television, film, and music to further complicate the "high" versus "low" culture debate that have defined academic inquiry. The Media, Arts and Culture (SIS) of the Florida Conference of Historians welcomes presentations that explore topics related to media and culture that seek to consider these vibrant changes. Papers and panels exploring comic books, fandom, film, television, media studies, technology, literature, and music are invited.

Sunday, October 14, 2012 - 8:10am
Keynes Library, Birkbeck College, London

Early modern books are full of numbers, representing both practicality and mystery. This multidisciplinary conference explores numbers in British early modern literature and textual culture. How were numbers and numerical techniques used in drama, dance, and music? What were the practical issues arising from printing numerical texts, and how were numbers represented on the page? How were the index and the cross-reference created and used? To what extent would an early modern audience recognize mathematical references in literary texts and performance? Who would buy an arithmetic book and how might they use it?

Proposals for papers are invited on, but not confined to, the following subject areas:

Digital Philology: A Journal of Medieval Cultures

Digital Philology is a new peer-reviewed journal devoted to the study of medieval vernacular texts and cultures. Founded by Stephen G. Nichols and Nadia R. Altschul, the journal aims to foster scholarship that crosses disciplines upsetting traditional fields of study, national boundaries and periodizations. Digital Philology also encourages both applied and theoretical research that engages with the digital humanities and shows why and how digital resources require new questions, new approaches, and yield radical results. The Johns Hopkins University Press publishes two issues of Digital Philology per year. One is open to all submissions, while the other one is guest-edited, and revolves around a thematic axis.
