Since the January 25 Revolution, Egyptians have been offered several opportunities to make their voices heard through the ballot box. The elections held in 2011 and 2012 have been occasions for the different political currents not only to come into office or to influence politics, but also to test their worth. Due to the post-revolutionary context, this issue of Egypt Arab World will be both in continuity with previous studies of Egyptian elections, as well as reflect a rupture in the study of the subject.

Conference Theme: Learning and Teaching Through Transformative Spaces

As previous Asian Conferences on Education have shown, education and lifelong learning can be seen as a solution to a host of local and global problems whilst globalized education systems are becoming increasing socially, ethnically and culturally diverse. Nevertheless, knowledge is often defined through discourses embedded in Western paradigms, whilst globalised education systems become increasingly determined by dominant knowledge economies.

We invite papers that begin to map an "Asian American South," a term that this panel construes broadly. In what ways do Asian American cultural productions engage with the South? How are cross-racial interactions depicted? How does the context of southern regionalism complicate Asian American subjectivity? Is there an "Asian Southern literature"? This panel welcomes considerations of Asian Americans as travelers to and settlers in the South, in film, fiction, poetry, and memoir, from any time period. By July 13, 2012, please submit a 250-word abstract and a brief bio to Sailaja Sastry, Barnard College, ssastry@barnard.edu.

The rise of the ecologically-oriented approaches in German-language literatures and scholarship calls for a new look at some traditional literary topics and representations in connection with the relationship of man and his natural environment. This panel seeks to (re) evaluate the literary representation of animals and related images in the light of eco-criticism. We invite abstracts for papers exploring the image of animals in the works of German-language authors of any period. Possible topic areas include, but are not limited to, animal studies, animality studies, cultural studies, ethics and animal rights, and animal-related postcolonial and modernist discourses.

CFP Ol3Media: Sex

Sex has always been one of the crucial elements of all media productions (cinema, theatre, television, videogames, comics, web) and one of the hot topic of debates, and not just within the academic circles, on the ways and extent of its representation, from mainstream to porn.
The next issue of Ol3Media is seeking short papers on the subject, with respect to different productions: both those that focus on sex in a programmatic way and those that have representation of it within products that have a wider focus.

Possible suggestions (but proposals on different topics are welcome):
