Critical Norths: Space, Nature, Theory- Deadline April 1, 2013

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Deadline April 1, 2013
Critical Norths: Space, Nature, Theory

Melting glacial ice reminds us of the North's role in global climate change. Detritus from the 2010 Japanese tsunami reveals the ring-of-fire traffic of economies, risks, species, bodies, and waste. Environments and communities in the North disproportionately bear the costs of the planet's dependency on oil. It is clear that the North is not an isolated, anachronistic, pristine, exceptional, or "authentic" space, as prevailing assumptions hold. As this collection seeks to demonstrate, the North is a dynamic, transnational, connected and contested space where natures, identities, histories, and politics constantly intersect.

Call For Participants to Build a PLOS-style Model for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 3:13pm
Martin Paul Eve, University of Lincoln

For quite some time, I have been interested in/incensed by the scholarly publication system; the exclusions, iniquities and absurdities of it can be clearly seen from only a brief survey of the economic field. I have watched with despair as the sciences have made projects work while the humanities and social sciences have almost sleepwalked into a disaster. The Finch Report published in the UK and accepted by the government will wreak havoc on our modus operandi and work to stratify an already split field.

But in the midst of the long row there hangs a canvas which differs from the others. . . . on this one plate no name is inscribed, and the linen within the frame is snow-white from corner to corner, a blank page.

Description of Conference:

Hemingway and the Chicago Renaissance--MLA 2014, Chicago (Deadline: March 1, 2013)

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 11:00am
The Ernest Hemingway Society

Taking advantage of the Chicago location for the upcoming Modern Language Association Convention (January 9-12, 2014), we invite papers that explore Hemingway's relationship with the Chicago Renaissance. While Hemingway's direct interaction with prominent Chicago literary figures would not occur until later in the Renaissance, his proximity to Chicago while growing up and the knowledge of the city and its culture he gained during his early adult life make many of the figures and books associated with the Renaissance period, both early and late, viable options for contrast with Hemingway's development as a writer and his own literary production.

Neither Here Nor There, Yet Both: International Conference on the Luso-American Experience July 11-13, 2013

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 - 10:32am
Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon / Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, New University of Lisbon

The past decades have witnessed a significant emergence of new approaches to the heritage of Portuguese-speaking people and their descendants in North America, which includes the expression of varied Lusophone communities. The University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies (ULICES) and the Centre for English, Translation and Anglo-Portuguese Studies (CETAPS) will host a conference in Lisbon, July 11-13, where we hope to stimulate the debate on Luso-American diasporic exchanges, with the worldwide participation of those who study, live, endure or enjoy such experiences – scholars, writers, readers, community workers and supporters.
