ABSTRACTS DUE 1/22/07

A recent article in London's Financial Times (FT) warned its
market-minded readers that the "plight of La Paz provides an
illustration of how a city's unchecked growth can threaten
stability."* The article went on to detail how El Alto, a "slum" city
of 1 million located on a plateau above the Bolivian capital, disrupts
business as usual not just with by now familiar complaints of
"pot-holed roads, belching minibuses, street vendors and packs of
stray dogs," but the radical spatial praxis of its inhabitants.

  "Queer Space" (3/1/07: ELN Special Issue)

A respected forum since 1962 for new work in English literary
studies, ELN (English
  Language Notes) has undergone a change in editorship and an extensive makeover
  as a biannual journal devoted exclusively to special topics in all
fields of literary
  and cultural studies. The new ELN is particularly determined to revive and
  reenergize its traditional commitment to featuring shorter notes,
often no more than
  3-4 pages in print, an attribute of the journal that will provide a
unique forum for
  cutting-edge scholarly debate and exchange in the humanities.
