We seek submissions for a new digital project that focuses on innovative teaching in American literary and cultural studies.

We hope At the Edge will offer scholars and teachers a lively forum for reflecting on our teaching practices, exchanging ideas about how we make our discipline come alive for our students, and presenting exciting new finds from the digital archives, and in the process, opening our classrooms to a broad audience of fellow teacher/scholars in the field.

Special Edition of Archival Science

CFP
Special Edition, Archival Science: Archiving Activism
Editors: Ben Alexander and Andrew Flinn

The proposed Special Edition will explore the myriad connections between contemporary archival practice and activism. This is a topic which although not new is one of rising contemporary significance as archive materials, the institutions which hold them and the many archivists which look after them are increasingly recognized and actively recruited in the cause of political and social justice. This comes at a time when notions of a more active, collaborative and participatory archival practice is gaining currency in the professional archival world.

Article topics may include but are not limited to:

UBO / Quimper Institute of Technology

Researchers in the Social and Human Sciences (SHS) investigating the sustainability of our modes of collective organization are faced with fundamental questions. Dialogue between the various disciplines within the SHS is unavoidable, as is exchange with researchers in the life sciences. Even if there currently exists a general consensus on the reality of a multidimensional ecological crisis (radical climate change, depletion of resources, loss of biodiversity…), the positioning of the social sciences researcher is more controversial.

With Melville's Bibles (2008), Ilana Pardes rebooted the study of Herman Melville's relationship to religion and the Bible, placing Moby-Dick in the context of contemporary exegetical practices. Her pivotal work situates Melville's most famous novel among "an impressive array of interpretive discourses—from literary renditions of biblical texts to traditional commentaries (among them, Calvin's commentaries and rabbinic lore), Gnostic mythos, popular sermons, political speeches, comparative accounts of religions and mythologies, and biblical encyclopedias" (2).
