April Durham/Legende Journal for SLSA Conference 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 31, 2017

Timothy Barker’s 2012 book, Time and the Digital, collated perspectives on time in Deleuze, Serres, and Whitehead to theorize a notion of time that is thick, dynamic, and multiple, clarifying the notion that all aspects art, scientific inquiry, and everyday life are involved in a complex becoming inside the operations of flexible, unpredictable movements of time. The idea of continual becoming has been circulating for some time now and informs work by Elizabeth Grosz, Karen Barad, Barbara Bolt, and others as they theorize the ability of subjects and objects to transform each other in an a-linear manner, through their situated relations.

MLA 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 10, 2017

This MLA roundtable will reconsider the “Theory” debates of the 1980s and after in light of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.  Is poststructuralist “de-centering” somehow complicit in the rise of “alternative facts” of recent newspeak or does it offer a critical bulwark against it?  (This is not a guaranteed session, so the proposal will be submitted once the roundtable is set.)  Please send a 250-word abstract and short biographical blurb by March 10 to David Ben-Merre (benmerdn@buffalostate.edu).

CALL FOR PAPERS

SCRUTINISING BEAUTY

 

Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.

-          Oscar Wilde

 

Beauty is desired in order to be befouled. Not for its own sake, but for the joy brought by the certainty of profaning it.

-          Georges Bataille

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, July 1, 2017

The current buzz word in academic circles is “student engagement.” Faculty are expected to engage in it, but many of us struggle to match our classroom practices with gridded and numbered administrative standards. How does your institution describe, define, view, practice, or measure student engagement? What are the goals set forth administratively and in the classroom? How do you strive to meet those expectations? And how does it matter to your college, to your administrators, to you, and to your students?
