                                         ECOLOGY AND INTEGRATIVE DISCOURSE: A REFLECTIVE ANALYSIS

CONCEPT NOTE

 

The word eco comes from the Greek word oikos, which etymologically implies household or earth and logy from logos implies rational discourse. Together they mean criticism of the house- the earth as represented in writing.  It is therefore defined in general, as the study of literature and the physical environment put together. However, in larger context, it incorporates numerous variants of human life.

CFP: “Intelligence,” Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association (JMMLA), Spring 2024

The Journal of the Midwestern Modern Language Association invites submissions for a Spring 2024 special issue on the theme of “Intelligence.”

Soon thereafter, the November 30th 2022 launch of ChatGPT-3 elicited responses ranging from the apocalyptic (the software is a huge step toward artificial general intelligence) to the skeptical (the software is not and cannot be intelligent).
