Stability: International Journal of Security & Development

Over the course of the past two decades, interventions to end conflicts, prevent conflict recurrence and foster peace have been launched across the world. These have involved transitional administrations in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo and Timor-Leste as well as efforts aimed at countering insurgencies and gang violence in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Chechnya, Mexico and elsewhere. Research, policymaking and programming in this area has been on the rise. It has brought together militaries, multilateral institutions, national aid agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international financial institutions, regional development banks, charities, the private sector and others.

Bill Wolff / Rowan University

I am soliciting abstracts by scholars from all disciplines, including scholar-fans and fan-scholars, to be considered for inclusion in an edited collection on Bruce Springsteen, which will eventually be submitted to Routledge's Studies in Popular Music series. The editor of this series has expressed an interest in seeing a Springsteen collection proposal.

In the middle of Bruce Springsteen's 2012 Wrecking Ball tour promotional interview with the Paris media, one reporter observed, "so many people these past couple years look to you for your interpretation of events… . Look at us: when we were waiting for you earlier, so many people care about what you think, and what you feel about what is happening in the world."

RSA 2015 (Mar. 26-28), Music in Theory and Practice on the Early Modern English Stage

updated: 
Wednesday, April 23, 2014 - 3:38pm
Renaissance Society of America

Early modern music theory was a complex web of intersecting ideas. Music was thought to be profoundly transformative for its listeners, entering through the ear and affecting the body, mind and spirit in ways that could be beneficial or destructive. It was deployed, too, as a metaphor for cosmic order, social stability and the health of the body and soul. But music was first and foremost a real sound in a real space, and the theatre in this period was unique in its capacity to place ideas about music into dialogue with its practice.

The Black Scholar

The editors of The Black Scholar welcome essays for a special issue examining the complexity of black cultural politics and identity in the Dominican Republic. This special issue seeks to analyze Dominican racial relations against the grain of the cross-disciplinary consensus, primarily U.S.-based, that focuses on Dominicans' "negrophobia," "anti-Haitianism," and "self-hatred." In this way, the issue inserts itself into a globally comparative Black Studies, including the articulations and disarticulations between blackness in the US, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
