The Journal of Law and Social Deviance publishes articles about the interplay of law and socially deviant behavior. We are interested in how law creates, inhibits, or challenges deviant behavior, especially as it evolves from, responds to, or inspires art, the animal kingdom, the body, fashion or design, pop culture, propaganda, sex, terrorism, and youth or youth movements.

Service learning and internship experiences have a successful and established history in American higher education—particularly in literature and writing classrooms. John Dewey provided early theory. Vita Dutton Scudder, an early 20th-Century professor at Wellesley College implemented service learning projects in her literature and writing courses (see Julia Garbas) and the late 20th-Century work of Bruce Herzberg, Linda Adler-Kassner, Ellen Cushman, Thomas Deans, and others explores initiatives taking students beyond the walls of traditional classrooms to connect writing to community and develop civically-minded citizens.
The Fat Studies Area of the Midwest Popular Culture Association solicits proposals of either full panels, roundtables, individual papers, or forms of artistic expression for its annual conference.

Renaissance and Baroque in Critical Theory
A panel to be held at the 5th Biennial conference of the Society for Renaissance Studies, University of Manchester, July 9-11, 2012
Proposals are invited for papers making up a panel on representations and appropriations of culture from the mid-1300s to the early 1700s by modern critical theory. Taking 'critical theory' broadly to include all those writing in the wake of Marx, Nietzsche, Freud and feminism, this panel seeks discussions of its passing remarks (such as those by Nietzsche and Lacan), sustained analyses (Bakhtin, Foucault, Kristeva), and more multifarious appropriations (Deleuze's baroque) on and of Renaissance texts, culture and terminology.
