Synapsis (European School for Comparative Studies)

For some time now, philosophers, sociologists and neuroscientists have started to look once again at the world of emotions and passions to try and understand the mechanisms behind them. The development of this field of inquiry bears witness to a renewed fascination for human behaviour. Many disciplines seem to be characterised these days by this 'affective turn', which has led to fresh attention to the nature of artistic and literary expression, and for its capacity to illustrate the physical and ethical dimensions of feeling.

Proposals for panels and papers are invited for a conference entitled "Captivity Writing Unbound," to be hosted by the University of South Alabama's Department of English and held at its Baldwin County campus, which is set in the heart of the quaint artist community of Fairhope, overlooking scenic Mobile Bay. As conference organizers, we envision a relatively concentrated event in which select scholars working in various disciplines and historical periods will present new ideas about the general area of writing and captivity. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing, whether these are conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms.

[CALL FOR ANTHOLOGY ARTICLES] Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace

Anthony C. Cooke/Emory University

At present, capitalism seems to enjoy a certain status as the last remaining "ideological superpower" in the global arena; however, many committed scholars, activists, writers, philosophers, and others continue to seek new avenues for humanistic engagement even as corporate and political interests work to circumscribe the academic community's contributions to issues affecting the public sphere. Such imagining of alternative epistemologies is the focus of an edited volume currently under consideration at Cambridge Scholars Publishing, entitled, Marxian Cartographies: Mapping and Re-drawing the Trace.
