Young Perspectives to Legal Education in Universities

The law is in our lives since the 22nd century BC, when a Sumerian ruler Ur-Nammu created the first law code

which consisted of casuistic statements. Since then, every society happened to create their on laws in order to live in

ordonnance and security, which would bring justice to their lives. For Plato, justice is an asset establishing rational

order, with each part performing its appropriate role and not interfering with the proper functioning of other parts.

Shakespeare scholars regularly encounter social justice issues in the material that we study and teach. Most often in the classroom our engagement with such issues takes the form of thematic identification and critical parsing. Yet we struggle to form more direct, material connections between coursework and social justice work. This book is for professors of early modern literature who want to heighten the intellectual impact of their courses by thoughtfully using their classrooms as laboratories for social formation and action.

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, January 28, 2017

   The annual Minnesota Writing and English Conference(MNWE) will be held at Southwest Minnesota State University, Marshall, Minnesota on March 31, 2017-April 1, 2017. The theme  of the conference is "Connecting Landscapes." Our age of globalization and  virtual communities can obscure the reality that we are all literally grounded in our landscapes, our locales and institutional sites. MnWE's theme, Connecting Landcapes, invites us to consider the most fruitful ways of connecting geographical and metaphorical landscapes. As English educators, we speak of discovering "where we stand" on issues, of being "moved" by words and images, and of using languagae to change others' positions and points of view and create movement.

2017 Blackfriars Conference

On odd numbered years since the first October the Blackfriars Playhouse opened, scholars from around the world have gathered in Staunton, during the height of the Shenandoah Valley’s Fall colors, to hear lectures, see plays, and explore early modern theatre. In 2017, the American Shakespeare Center’s Education and Research Department will once again host Shakespeareans, scholars and practitioners, to share ideas about Shakespeare in the study and Shakespeare on the stage and to find ways that these two worlds – sometime in collision – can collaborate.

Taking Flight: assembling, becoming, queering Deleuze Studies Conference and Camp

updated: 
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 9:30pm
10th International Deleuze Studies Conference, Toronto, 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Taking Flight speaks to Deleuze and Guattari’s petition to leave bounded territories and to connect and to create and to “establish a logic of the AND.” Privileging intense and transformative encounters with others, they ask us not to cling to the state apparatus that reinforces the normative or the binary machines which rigidify us (man-woman, adult-child, straight-queer etc.), but to invent more supple and fluid connections, which, in turn, create new concepts, new thought, and new experiences. This invitation for anomalous creations and diversifications across and beyond disciplines ruptures genealogies, totalities, and unifications.

. . . . we moved together out of the clutch of the Fates, inhabitors of a world without doom; with a scratching, licking and chewing of pens, a whisper and passing of jokes, a titter of tickling, a grumble of labour, a vague stare at the wall in a dream. . . . (Laurie Lee, Cider with Rosie)
