An upcoming special issue of Jacket2 will be dedicated to the work of poet Leslie Scalapino (1944-2010). The editors seek essays that have some degree of focus on Scalapino's more recently published works (from 2008 to 2011) including the new edition of How Phenomena Appear to Unfold; The Dihedrons Gazelle-Dihedrals Zoom; Flow-Winged Crocodile & A Pair/Actions Are Erased/Appear; Floats Horse-Floats or Horse-Flows; The Animal is in the World like Water; and It's go in horizontal.
Papers are welcome for the 85th Annual SAMLA Conference, which will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, November 8-10, 2013. This panel supports the special focus of the conference, "Cultures, Contexts, Images, and Texts: Making Meaning in Print, Digital, and Networked Worlds" by thinking about the relationship between digital writing environments and composing. One of the driving forces of web 2.0 is increased access to production and delivery of content. To open up access, developers, users, and designers separated the practice of designing of texts and systems from creating content for/in those texts and systems (Arola, 2010; Wysocki, 2004). But in opening up access, have we automated tasks that define composing?

Oh you lost God! You endless trace!
Only because in the end hate divided you
are we now nature's mouth and listeners.
~ Rilke, The Sonnets to Orpheus, 26
A 'trace' can be that which has existed, and which is now past; or that which has passed, in the case of a track or a footprint; or that which copied or drawn or outlined, such as a map or a word in the sand. It can be used as a noun or a verb: as an object or concept, or an active process of discovery.
In the disciplines of art history and visual culture, the portrait is often understood as the depiction of a unique human subject. But what are the limits of portraiture? What can a portrait represent other than the visual or essential likeness of an individual or group?
This one-day conference aims to address non-traditional forms of portraiture and self-portraiture, and to explore the potential of the 'anti-portrait' for rethinking the boundaries of the genre. For the purposes of the conference we define the anti-portrait in the broadest possible terms as a work that simultaneously engages with and resists the conventional codes of portraiture.
