CFP (ALA 2013): Melville's Bibles Beyond Moby-Dick

Wednesday, October 10, 2012 - 11:54am
Zach Hutchins / Herman Melville Society

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).

With automotive companies looking at sustainable transportation, supply chain management companies are also looking at following suit.

Ford Motors is taking positive steps to ensure the health and safety of its customers and the environment. The company has teamed up with Weyerhaeuser to develop a range of electrified vehicles to promote sustainable transportation.

Ford and Weyerhaeuser have found that biomaterials can be used for not only exterior, but also interior and under the hood components as well. The companies are working on creating a new type of plastic composites that can replace traditional materials such as fibreglass and minerals.

Terror Feminista/Femenina? MLA 2014

Feministas Unidas

From the Conquest narratives of the New World and Spanish Inquisition testimonies to the ravages of the Spanish Civil War, ETA and, more recently, the March 3rd, 2004 train bombings in Madrid, Spain has struggled with the problem of terrorism. Likewise, Latin America and the Caribbean have seen their share of terrorist activities as dictators and factions as diverse as the FARC and Sendero Luminoso have unleashed their vitriol on citizens. In this panel, we seek to engage the language of violence/terrorism in its diverse forms as it has manifested itself in the works of women writers, film makers and visual artists of the Spanish-speaking and U.S. Latina worlds.
