Keridiana Chez

I am putting together a panel exploring relations between England and the U.S. during 1870-1910 for the Midwest Conference on British Studies 56th Annual Meeting (October 8-10, 2010, Cleveland), given their strong preference for completed panels.

We have room for one or two more papers on English/American literary relations 1870-1910 that pertain to race/ethnicity or gender studies, especially as such pertain to issues of national identity and transatlantic issues.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: The conference deadline has been advanced to 5/15/10.

Please send a 200-word abstract and a brief, 1-page CV to kerychez@gmail.com by Monday, April 26, 2010.

Torture: What is the fascination with this arcane activity? The very nature torture is that it speaks to us viscerally—a prolonged sensory activity that captivates its audience with images of pain and misery. It is something society looks down upon yet simultaneously has an almost obsessive interest in viewing, dissecting and in some cases applying.

This panel seeks to present theories and analysis regarding the use of rhetorical methods in history, literature, art and film to rally the masses in support of the very activities that society collectively deems heinous.

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 - 3:04pm
agency

agency, an online, peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary journal, invites submissions for its inaugural issue, a special issue on Obama, Race, and Empire. The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States in November 2008 was hailed by many as a transformative moment in the history of race relations within the United States, and the USA's relationship with the global community. Yet, Obama's first year as President has resulted in frustration for many of his supporters, as policy goals remain goals not achievements and the USA continues to be seen by many as oppressive and imperialist.

agency

agency, an online, peer-reviewed and interdisciplinary journal, invites submissions for a special issue on Immigration and Visual Culture.

CALL FOR PAPERS:

Rhetoric/Composition/Play: How Electronic Games Mediate Composition Theory and Practice (and Vice Versa)
[Extended Deadline]

Computer and video games continue to inundate the entertainment market, and culture along with it. Traditional text games, adventure games, first-person shooters, the immersive worlds of role-playing games (massively multiplayer or otherwise), simulations, "casual" games such as solitaire, and even web advertisements posing as games have formed a landscape rich with opportunities to examine composition-rhetoric's history, theory, pedagogy, and practice, where scholars can use, examine, and imagine the impact of games and gaming on writing.
