We welcome papers concentrating on 'spaces' that could be considered 'monstrous' or are in some way capable of creating 'monstrosity.' Spaces may be real or imagined, literal or metaphorical, psychological or material. Literal places may include sites of trauma, genocide, or biological experimentation; dystopias; colonized regions; mythical lands; etc. Psychological spaces may include memory, neurosis, philosophy, etc. Monstrosity may be perceived as depravity; social or sexual taboos; hegemonic power in the form of racism, classism, sexism; etc. Papers may challenge, call to light, or reinforce perceptions of monstrosity.

Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.

Call For Participants to Build a PLOS-style Model for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 3:13pm
Martin Paul Eve, University of Lincoln

For quite some time, I have been interested in/incensed by the scholarly publication system; the exclusions, iniquities and absurdities of it can be clearly seen from only a brief survey of the economic field. I have watched with despair as the sciences have made projects work while the humanities and social sciences have almost sleepwalked into a disaster. The Finch Report published in the UK and accepted by the government will wreak havoc on our modus operandi and work to stratify an already split field.
