CFP Technoculture
Computers and Writing Online 2007
February 5 through February 9, 2007

Conference Co-Chairs:
Dr. Keith Dorwick,
The University of Louisiana at Lafayette
Dr. Kevin Moberly,
St. Cloud State University

Conference Co-Chairs Keith Dorwick and Kevin Moberly
are seeking synchronous and asynchronous presentations
that address a wide conception of scholarship that
focuses on a range of issues that could be briefly
summed up as "technology and society," or, perhaps,
"technologies and societies." Successful papers for
this online conference should focus on the ways
humanists read technology as a special case of
cultural studies.

CFP: Cityscapes: Town and Country in the Medieval Imagination (UK) (7/31/06; Leeds, 7/9/07-7/12/07)

The effect of cityscapes on the creative imagination has in recent years
become one of the countless concerns of contemporary cultural criticism, but
surprisingly little attention has been paid to the medieval roots of the
perception of urban environments. Building upon the considerable recent work
on the city in the Middle Ages, this session aims to address this critical
vacuum by bringing together papers that discuss the relationship of town and
country in the medieval imagination. Can we sustain a belief in an ultimate
and insurmountable otherness of the medieval imagination or are the medieval
and postmodern views of cityscapes in fact two sides of the same coin? I

Call for papers: "Earth, Air, Water, Fire: Twentieth Century Poetics of
Simplicity"

=20

Much of the best known and most widely admired poetry of the last
hundred years displays, even flaunts, its bookishness, its elaborate and
often thrilling systems of allusion and symbology, its theoretical
sophistication. The best of this work, from the high modernists to the
language poets, is both dazzling and exhilarating. We love this stuff,
for itself no doubt, and rightly, but possibly also for the way the
arcana make us feel useful to our students.
