MP International Feminist Journal invites you to contribute to a special
themed issue on "Popular Culture". The machinations of culture take many
forms, and while the Academy has not opened up its arms to completely accept
popular culture, it is beginning to see that the study of popular culture
contributes toward an interdisciplinary understanding of our world, our
social interactions and our future as an international community. Papers on
any aspect of popular culture as they apply to feminism and feminist
discourse are welcomed: television, popular literature, music, film,
"reality" television, street culture, fashion, pop psychology (self help)

Karen Zumhagen-Yekplé

Call for papers: Modernist Studies Association 8, October 19-22 2006 Tulsa,
Oklahoma
 
Precision and Soul in Modernism
 
In 1922, Robert Musil wrote of a ³miscommunication between the intellect and
the soul.² ³We do not have too much intellect and too little soul², he
continued, ³but too little intellect in matters of the soul². This panel
focuses on the ways in which the intellect and the soul are made actively to
communicate in modernist texts in which the impersonal, the abstract, the
logical and the technological provide a means of accessing the poetic,
mystical, epiphanic and extraordinary aspects of the everyday real.
