Heidegger and Joyce: Call for Contributors to an upcoming Anthology

We are seeking to round out a collection with a few essays connecting the
thinking of Heidegger to the works of James Joyce. The underlying goal of
this collection will be to open up avenues for thinking of Joyce as an
equally valid instantiation of the "poetizing-thinking" tradition which
Heidegger located in Holderlin among others.

Fractured Dialogues: The Crisis of Human Rights

Editors, Helen Delfeld and V.G. Julie Rajan, Rutgers University

In the past few decades we have seen at least two dialogues on human rights,
which have been fractured even in their emergence. The first is the positive
assertion of rights, especially through legal regimes. The second loose
grouping of activists and scholars are troubled by four issues: the
universalizing nature of rights talk; the Western bias evident in common
discussions of rights; the contradictions masked by the apparent moral
simplicity of rights talk; and the hegemonic nature of the problems that are
discussed. It is this second dialogue to which we seek to give voice.

Humanities announce two interdisciplinary half-day conferences about
Brooklyn to be held at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.
Entitled "Imagining Brooklyn," the conferences will ask what makes Brooklyn
Brooklyn. With much of Brooklyn undergoing a major social and cultural
change to match its architectural transformation, we will explore the
borough¹s identity, past and present; the role of its ethnic and
neighborhood communities in creating that identity; its tradition of
authenticity; and the idea of Brooklyn as cool. We call for papers that
