CFP: [20th] 2009 M/MLA session French III: Frontières réelles ou imaginées : Les défis de lâespace migratoire

Thursday, February 5, 2009 - 4:48pm
Marina Calas

A l’heure actuelle, une personne sur 35 dans le monde est un migrant. Les
aspects du phénomène migratoire sont multiples et complexes. La progression
des techniques de transport et de communication qui ont pour effet de
relier des lieux et des personnes partout dans le monde favorise
l'émergence d'un
«espace migratoire transnational». On voit ainsi disparaître graduellement
la distinction entre «espace géographique» et «espace migratoire».
Aujourd'hui, les Etats reconnaissent que l'appartenance à un lieu n'est
plus liée à des considérations de territoire. Cependant, les défis subsistent.

Gaining a Public Voice: Alternate Genres of Publication for Graduate Students
(3/1/09; 12/27-30/09)

Call for abstracts; MLA session sponsored by the Committee on the Status of
the Graduate Students in the Profession (CSGSP)

This panel examines graduate students’ transition from the classroom to the
public, within and beyond the scholarly community. While graduate training
initiates young scholars into the discursive behavior and traditions of
their department, the broader disciplinary contexts of knowledge
construction become increasingly important as graduate students leave that
intimate framework and make use of the various genres of publication.

CFP: [International] BEYOND CONSTRUCTIONISM: TECHNOLOGY, COMMUNICATION, COMMUNITY,â a Symposium on Contemporary Philosoph

Stephen Dougherty

Volda University College, April 16-17, 2009

In recent years a paradigm shift has been underway in the humanities and
the social sciences. This shift has resulted in the declining influence of
"constructionism," where the body's meaningfulness is understood in terms
of social practices, and the rising influence of theories of embodiment
that take fuller account of the body's materiality and its physical
situatedness. This two-day symposium will explore how the critical turn to
embodiment has impacted our understanding of technology, communication, and
community.
