Virginia Woolf and Jews/Jewishness

updated: 
Friday, January 27, 2012 - 10:00pm
Woolf Studies Annual

Call for submissions—a special issue of Woolf Studies Annual on Virginia Woolf and Jews/Jewishness.

The 2013 volume of Woolf Studies Annual will be devoted to the topic of Jews and/or Jewishness in Woolf's writing. We are less interested in the question of whether or not Woolf herself was or was not antisemitic (except insofar as this can be articulated in readings of her texts) than in how the figure of the Jew operates within her work.

The special issue is not limited to work on Virginia Woolf herself, but also will welcome contributions on Leonard Woolf, and on the Bloomsbury milieu. In addition to full-length articles, we also envisage a forum of short commentary, and an annotated bibliography.

Teaching the Environment: Transdisciplinary Perspectives ( Sep 18. – 19. 2012)

Friday, January 27, 2012 - 1:43pm
University of Cologne (Germany), English Dept. II

We are looking for contributors to a transdisciplinary symposium on the didactical implementations of ecocriticism, critical animal studies and green cultural studies. With a special emphasis on transdisciplinary perspectives, we would like to discuss how the tenets of these academic fields can be incorporated into the daily practice of teaching the humanities and arts – without either breaching the topics' complexity, falling into the mode of environmentalist propaganda or succumbing to warnings and claims to catastrophic urgency which are hard to reconcile with an ethos of critical and democratic pedagogy.

If there is 'no friend', then how could I call you my friends, my friends? By what right? How could you take me seriously? If I call you my friends, my friends, if I call you, my friends, how dare I add, to you, that there is no friend?

- Jacques Derrida, The Politics of Friendship (1994)

From this day forth, I would like you all to report to me your findings on the magic of friendship when, and only when, you happen to discover them.

Leonardo Electronic Almanac (Leonardo/ISAST)

Leonardo Electronic Almanac in collaboration with FACT (Foundation for Art Creative Technology) and following an exhibition organized by FACT and Tate Liverpool on Nam June Paik announces a special issue titled: Far and Wide: Nam June Paik. This issue explores the role of Nam June Paik in shaping the future vision of contemporary new media approaches, experimentation with emerging technology, aesthetics and conceptualizations.

Nam June Paik (1932-2006) changed the very idea of what making art might look like. An artist, philosopher, performer and composer (widely considered to be the first video artist), Paik was a true visionary whose work is defined by collaborations with other innovative artists and experimentation with emerging technology.

Speed, Dromology and Invisibility? - Deadline: January 31, 2012

Friday, January 27, 2012 - 5:04am
Leonardo Electronic Almanac (Leonardo/ISAST)

From the futurist's speed through contemporary dromology to the disappearance of the human body? What are the future trajectories of a continuous process of acceleration? Is the disappearance of the body through artificial speed a process of invisibility or that of a visibility through acceleration?

The instantaneous communication across Web 2.0 and the speed of interactions has created the feeling of a contradiction between an idea of constant presence and that of the disappearance of the body in a constant trajectory of 'self-dissemination.' In 1909 the futurists envisaged a new world and some of their far-fetched visionary ideas have come to pass. What is the role that speed will play in the future of humanity in the twenty-first century?
