CFP: Utopian Spaces, Utopian Places (grad) (12/31/06; 3/9/07)

Monday, November 6, 2006 - 2:37am

The Fourth Annual English Department Graduate Conference at Brandeis

?Utopian Spaces, Utopian Places?

March 9, 2007

      ?Utopian Spaces, Utopian Places,? an interdisciplinary
conference, will interrogate the concept of utopia across a broad
spectrum of historical, theoretical, and literary contexts.

      We seek papers that intervene in critical discourses surrounding
either the conceptual space of utopia or the creation of actual
utopian places (or both). We encourage examinations of utopia in such
disciplines as literature, film, visual culture, anthropology,
cultural studies, psychology, history, gender studies, philosophy, and
critical theory.

CFP: Currents in Social Networking (1/15/07; journal issue)

Monday, November 6, 2006 - 1:35am
Doug Freeman

We are excited to announce that Currents in Electronic Literacy is
moving in a new direction. The Spring 2007 issue of Currents will
focus on reviews. We believe a journal based on reviews can be of much
greater relevance to the field than our past models, which consisted
of a few long articles supplemented by short book reviews. However, in
this new model we will conceive of "reviews" more broadly. In addition
to reviewing books, we are soliciting reviews of software, websites,
blogs, conferences, parallel academic programs, and pedagogical
practices. We hope that the new version of Currents will point out
emerging trends in the field of electronic literacy.

Spring 2007 Call for Reviews:

  This year's SHARP conference theme is "Open the Book, Open the Mind," which will highlight how books develop and extend minds and cultures, and also how they are opened to new media and new purposes.
