We seek creative works that use new media and/or are on the subject of technology, and essays from a broad a range of academic disciplines that focus on cultural studies of technology.

Topics could include depictions of technologies that treat a wide range of subjects related to the humanities. These subjects might include:

Aliases and Editors: Negotiating Identity in 19th Century Periodicals (Panel) - DEADLINE EXTENDED 10/10/11

NeMLA Annual Convention - Rochester, New York

The following CFP is for a panel taking place at the Annual Northeast Modern Language Association Annual Convention in Rochester, New York on March 12-15, 2012.

The periodical writer often depended upon establishing a distinguishable identity to achieve his/her popularity. Yet some of the most successful examples were pseudonymous figures like Charles Lamb's Elia and James Hogg's Ettrick Shepherd. Such figures often played fast and loose with notions of stable identity, altering and contradicting their fictional backstories with each month's contribution. Operating through such mercurial personas, these writers utilized the market's potential for fluctuating identity described by Lynch.

Epistemic shifts are themselves inherently violent and the uncertainty and instability that these shifts produce frequently elicit a violent response. This seminar intends to put into conversation scholarly works that explore both the representation of violent acts and the violence of representation. We are interested in a diverse conversation across multiple disciplines and seek papers that deal with literary, cinematic, performative or documentary texts.

CFP: Textual Empires & Discursive Dissent: Reimagining Aesthetic Traditions in Race and Ethnicity Studies

updated: 
Monday, October 3, 2011 - 1:49pm
American Studies Association 2012 Annual Conference--San Juan, Puerto Rico

The horrors of empire have left an indelible mark on the geopolitical space of the circum-Atlantic world and hemispheric America. And the aesthetic expressions of this imperial site bear the traces of a past devastated by despotic and hegemonic rule.

Often, aesthetic expressions of the Other participate within otherwise legitimated and established forms—articulated with a difference.
