Problems of Democracy
Friday 30th April – Sunday 2nd May 2010
Prague, Czech Republic
Call for Papers
The opening decade of the 21st century sees democracy entrenched as the
ideal to which all should aspire who do not already enjoy the best of
all possible political systems. But to assert that alternatives to
democracy are (even) worse is hardly to give a positive argument in its
favour: Plato's objection, that the "ship of state" requires expertise
to steer it that "the many" do not possess surely deserves a better
answer. But what? And is an answer to be found in "democracy itself"
(whatever that may be) or in what democracy makes possible?

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87
San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.
Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.

Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference:
The Poetics of Pain: Aesthetics, Ideology, and Representation
February 25th-26th, 2010
Keynote: Peter Brooks (Yale University)
This panel explores the connections between reality and imagined or imaginary worlds by examining the ways in which sight, and in particular the seeing of things that are not present or do not exist, contributes to knowledge and understanding. The faculty of vision is often a metaphor for understanding and learning, and the mystical or otherworldly vision represents not only an explanation for the integration and processing of new information into an older worldview, but a metaphorical space in which personal growth can be demonstrated through "seeing" new connections and truths.
CFP: RHETORICS OF HAPPINESS
Happiness is a concept, an ideal, whose metaphysical, philosophical, ethical, religious, psychological and perhaps even aesthetic dimensions have been assumed, if not explicitly explored, throughout human history. It is implicit in most justifications of political, social and legal decision-making. In America, it was one of the three fundamental bases mentioned for the rejection of the status of the colonies.

45th Annual Comparative Literature Conference
California State University, Long Beach
"Visual Culture & Global Practices"
March 4-6, 2010
W. J. T. Mitchell, Prof. of English & Art History, University of Chicago
The contemporary situation in humanities and social sciences is often characterized by the so called "visual turn", or the increasing emphasis of theory on the power and scope of the visual in everyday life, science, literature, media and the arts. Visual Culture as well as the formation of the field of Visual Studies stems from this renewed focus upon pictoriality and the power of the image, and its expression through various linguistic, visual and media forms.
