The journal /qui parle/ is seeking submissions for a special dossier,
"Urban Intercessions: The City as Limit Politics." The dossier will
focus on how we could imagine the effects and conditions of violence or
political force — whether it be legal, racial, geographic, or gendered,
and whether the force be oppressive or emancipatory — within the
specific locality of a metropolitan context, one which is somehow
inflected by local or particular concerns and yet reflects a global,
international, or, at the very least, extra-metropolitan politics. What
role does the city — "modern" or "not" — have in current inter/national
political formations? How does it function as a site of violence or

Papers should be about 10 pp. long, delivered in about 20 minutes, which will leave 10 minutes for discussion. By 1/1/2007 please send abstract (no longer than 300 words) to wharmon03_at_mindspring.com.

Criminal Imaginaries: Transnational Capital and Moral Economies

Description:

The notion of criminality calls to mind the state apparatuses required to
control or eradicate such activities and the felons who perpetuate them.
As such, discussions of the criminal figure imbricate discourses of the
nation and its institutions. This seminar will look at who or what the
nation-state criminalizes, and the relations of "criminals" to
transnational capital.

CFP: Shakespeare and Islam (journal issue)

Scholars have long associated Shakespeare with the wider world beyond early
modern England's shores, notably Europe of course and, in the wake of New
Historicism, the Americas. One of the most interesting recent developments
in early modern studies, however, has been the recognition that writers
looked towards the East as well as westwards - to the Islamic world, and the
Ottoman Empire in particular.
