Friday, September 3, 2010 - 12:48am
Rubric Journal

Rubric is an online interdisciplinary journal centred around creative writing. It is a space in which to explore the nexus of text and subject, and critically consider the definition of these terms. We welcome contributions of fiction / poetry / fictocriticism / electronic literature / writing and critical theory / practice-based research and as yet undiscovered modes in-between.

As of this issue, all submissions will be double peer-reviewed by our editorial board: this is an exciting opportunity for contributors to help shape the future direction of the journal. We welcome international contributions.

Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge

Hives, Tribes, Assemblages: New Collectivities
In introducing A Thousand Plateaus Deleuze and Guattari famously quip: "The two of us wrote Anti-Oedipus together. Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd." And matters only get more congested as their mental geography unfolds among landscapes traversed by herds, swarms, bands, gangs, hoards, flocks, packs, masses and multiple other collective becomings. This special issue of Rhizomes invites essays and multimodal works that consider new manifestations of and approaches to collectively, community or other multiplicities—whether inspired by D & G or not.

New book series: Material Readings in Early Modern Culture

Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 3:38pm
Ashgate Publishing Company

This new book series provides a forum for studies that consider the material forms of texts as part of an investigation into early modern culture. The editors invite proposals of a multi- or interdisciplinary nature, and particularly welcome proposals that combine archival research with an attention to the theoretical models that might illuminate the reading, writing, and making of texts, as well as projects that take innovative approaches to the study of material texts, both in terms the kinds of primary materials under investigation, and in terms of methodologies. What are the questions that have yet be to asked about writing in its various possible embodied forms? Are there varieties of materiality that are critically neglected?

Objects of Inquiry and Exchange: Eighteenth-Century Thing Theory in a Global Context

updated: 
Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 12:13pm
Christina Ionescu, Mount Allison University, and Ileana Baird, University of Virginia

Submissions are being sought for a collection of essays tentatively titled Objects of Inquiry and Exchange: Eighteenth-Century Thing Theory in a Global Context. Whereas the temporal expanse of the "long" eighteenth-century has been repeatedly emphasized, its spatial inclusiveness and thematic coincidences beyond British (or British colonial) boundaries are still insufficiently addressed. This volume invites papers that may fill in this informational gap: they will focus on how the increased production and circulation of things during the century has encouraged processes of cultural, scientific, and commercial exchange that justify its consideration from a more globalizing perspective.

Panelists are invited to submit papers addressing the group or any members: Adams, Benchley, Broun, Connelly, Kaufman, Parker, Ross, Sherwood, Toohey, Woollcott. Our goal: remove some dust from this exciting 20th-century group. Please submit abstracts to cathy.fagan@ncc.edu by 9/30.
