The Condemned Playground:
Aldous Huxley and his Contemporaries
Balliol College, Oxford University
1-4* September 2013 [*NOTE NEW DATES]
Scheduled to coincide with the centenary of Aldous Huxley's arrival at Balliol College as an undergraduate, this major international conference seeks both to reassess his diverse oeuvre, and to bring new attention to a constellation of writers whose work developed in dialogue with literary modernism. The conference, which incorporates the Fifth International Aldous Huxley Symposium, will look broadly at Huxley's engagements with fellow British and American writers and with some of the key movements of his time.

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now recruiting postgraduate peer-reviewers for a themed issue on the concept of 'Dis/Orientation' in literature of all periods. We are looking for doctoral students who are interested in gaining experience and developing career-relevant skills in the publishing process. As peer reviewer for Stet, you will screen and blind-review a manuscript article and produce a short evaluation report.

King's College London

Stet, the online postgraduate journal of the English Department at King's College London, is now accepting submissions from current postgraduate students for its third peer-reviewed publication. In this issue, we will present articles from an international pool of students on the concept of dis/orientation. We seek to explore the question of how we are and have been located or dislocated in space, time, and history. Which parts of our personal, social, cultural, geographical, genetic, or technological landscape orient us? What incidents construct our conception of ourselves and our environments?

CFP: Abstracts for edited collection, 'Deleuze and Guattari on Economy', March 15, 2013

Kane X. Faucher, Western University

We are currently putting together a prospectus for a book on Deleuze and Guattari on Economy. Ideally, this book of edited essays would be more than an exegesis of what Deleuze and Guattari say about economy and would function as a launchpad for providing a critical blueprint as to what a Deleuzian and/or Guattarian (e.g., anti-semiocapitalism) approach to economic theory would look like. If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please send an abstract of between 250-500 words to kfauche@uwo.ca no later than March 15, 2013.

[UPDATE] "Labor Beyond Economy," ACLA April 4-7 2013

Friday, November 2, 2012 - 7:14pm
ACLA

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.
