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.

Imagining Brooklyn
The Center for the Study of Brooklyn and the Ethyl R.Wolfe Institute for the
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

Deadline extended to 11/30/06:

We are seeking contributions for a collection of essays (to present for
publication in 2007) which will address the status of the workshop model in
creative writing and composition. The workshop model has been around for a
long time. Has it become static or is it alive and well in our writing
classes? What's working and what's not? What is its aim, purpose, and
future? How do teachers keep workshops fresh and productive? What innovative
techniques are used in conjunction with the workshop model?

Contributors should send completed essays to Dianne Donnelly-Smith at
djsmith_at_mail.usf.edu.

Deadline for submission is now 11/30/06.
