GRAMMA: Journal of Theory and Criticism Issue Number 21 (2013): "The History and Future of the 19th-Century Book"

updated: 
Saturday, February 25, 2012 - 3:22pm
Editors of the issue: Maria Schoina and Andrew Stauffer

In the period between 1740 to 1850, the systematization of the entire process of making and selling books through a network of printers, publishers, booksellers, writers, readers, and critics led to the evolution of the book trade into a profit-making machine. The resulting professionalization and commodification of literature created not only professional authors and critics, making authorship itself undergo significant change, but set up an entirely new way of conceiving of reading, writing, and selling literary materials. The changing nature of books, media, information and communication defined the literary culture of the period and was central to the establishment of national identity.

3rd Global Conference
Making Sense Of: Suffering

Tuesday 13th November – Thursday 15th November 2012
Salzburg, Austria

Call for Papers:
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to explore if, or to what extent, meaning can be found in suffering. During the course of living our lives, we are invariably forced to stop and question why we suffer – be it through illness, pain, loss, grief or the multitude of distressing circumstances which we encounter. Problems arise in a variety of contexts and due to a bewildering variety of conditions. And because our lives are constant streams of experience, the nature of suffering and consequently the 'meaning' of such suffering continually varies and changes.

From Wall Street to Main Street: The Regional Politics of Occupying (an edited collection, April 1)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 8:03pm
Todd Comer and Nathan Crook

Broad messages, complicated political positions, and blurred generational and class lines characterize and problematize the Occupy Wall Street movement. As if its connection to the Canadian magazine Adbusters were not enough, this "U.S." movement's clearest and most original position may be its denial of position. Beyond "We are the 99%"—a general position against greed and inequality—the "movement" remains difficult to categorize in terms of the red/blue politics of the United States. The picture becomes even more complicated at the regional level where clear, defining symbols of nationalist power and capital are absent.
