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.

In the Margin: e-text and its readers (proposals 30 April 2012)

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 - 3:06pm
Drs. Ann-Barbara Graff and Kristin Lucas

We solicit contributions for an edited collection of scholarly essays entitled In the Margin: e-Text and its readers. Considerable scholarship of the past three decades has addressed the history, readership, and materiality of the book. The architecture of the page, paperstock, fount, blank spaces, and readerly annotation have been the subject of economic, material, and theoretical analysis. Attention to how books have been copied, signed, and annotated has illuminated a history of reading and literary activity. The codex, in short, has been invaluable to the material turn in bibliographic and literary scholarship. But what of the digital turn?
