Jen Spitzer and Meg Hammond / New York University

We are looking for a third contributor to round out a proposed panel on modernism and psychology for the 2012 Modernist Studies Association conference in Las Vegas. Papers for the panel will either explore the role(s) that psychological theories and practice played in the creation of modernist art or use recent psychology to illuminate some aspect of modernism. Although we are particularly interested in papers that treat schools of psychology other than Freudian psychoanalysis (such as behaviorism, social psychology, cognitive psychology, or self psychology), we also welcome papers that examine non-orthodox Freudian approaches. We especially hope to see proposals for papers on visual art, film, theater, or architecture.

CFP: The Archive

The Velvet Light Trap Issue #71: The Archive

From material to immaterial, the archive serves as an interface between past and future knowledge. In this relationship, the archive is both a method and a space of theory and politics. As the production and exchange of information continue to expand at exponential rates, understanding the role of the archive in the storage, accessibility, and legacy of this information becomes increasingly necessary. Already this call has joined the digital archives of inboxes, servers, and hard drives, underscoring the prevalence of archives in everyday life. The study of the production of knowledge necessitates an interrogation of the contemporary state of the archive.

If there is 'no friend', then how could I call you my friends, my friends? By what right? How could you take me seriously? If I call you my friends, my friends, if I call you, my friends, how dare I add, to you, that there is no friend?

- Jacques Derrida, The Politics of Friendship (1994)

From this day forth, I would like you all to report to me your findings on the magic of friendship when, and only when, you happen to discover them.

Call for Papers: Urban Apocalypse, Urban Renaissance: Landscapes in Science Fiction and Fantasy, June 28th-July 1st, 2012

Science Fiction Research Association Abstracts due by April 23rd, 2012

Detroit is at once an apocalyptic city and a Renaissance city. Over the past ten years, Detroit has suffered immensely, especially during the economic downturn and the virtual demise of the auto industry. Its apocalyptic landscape of abandoned buildings, its negative image due to high crime rates, a recently impeached corrupt Mayor, Kwame Kilpartick, and the loss of close to 300,000 people in the last census have made it the symbol of a city with a hopeless future. However, there is hope as the so called Renaissance city of the 1970s may now be experiencing a true Renaissance.

"Shaping Policy, Changing Law" - Research Conference, The Law Society, London, Friday October 12, 2012

The Law Society

The Law Society invites papers from academics for a conference on the relationship between academic research and policy development and law reform.

LJ Jackson's review of civil costs and the ensuing legislative process to enact his recommendations highlights the importance of, and necessity for, academics and their research in the development of policy and law reform. The requirement in the 2014 REF exercise to demonstrate the impact of research provides a strong impetus for the relationship between research and law reform and policy to be explored and invigorated.

This conference aims to provide a unique opportunity to do that by bringing together academics, parliamentarians, civil servants, judges and other users of research.
