Independent Libraries as the 'Great Good Place'

Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 2:45pm
Independent Libraries Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 22, 2020

In the heart of their communities and repositories of some of the most independent cultural collections in the UK, independent libraries are social, educational, working spaces which deliver numerous personal benefits to those who use them. This year’s theme is inspired by Ray Oldenburg’s The Great Good Place (1989), in which Oldenberg discusses the desirable ‘third place’: public places where anyone can gather and interact. Unlike the first place (home) and the second place (work), third spaces offer inexpensive access to discussion, pleasure, and community, leading to social cohesion, civic engagement, and the wellbeing that comes from a sense of place. Third spaces can be cafes, main streets, coffeehouses, beer gardens…

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 15, 2020

This two-day interdisciplinary conference is hosted by the AHRC Funded Chronotopic Cartographies project (Lancaster University) in partnership with The British Library. It comes out of primary research into the digital visualisation of space and time for fictional works that have no real-world correspondence. Chronotopic Cartographies develops digital methods and tools that enable the mapping of literary works by generating graphs as “maps” directly out of the coded text.

Theories and Strategies for Teaching Creative Writing Online

Theories and Strategies for Teaching Creative Writing Online Edited Collection
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 1, 2019

To meet the needs of the growing body of online students, online pedagogy scholars persist in their efforts to ensure online education is as vibrant and effective as its onsite counterpart, if not more so. However, scholarship focusing on teaching creative writing, specifically, online is limited. As Bronwyn T. Williams rightfully points out, “the scholarship in creative writing pedagogy remains remarkably unengaged with digital technologies” (247). Given the youthfulness of creative writing scholarship, particularly when compared to other work that has taken the forefront in English studies, it is fair to assume that creative writing scholarship might be too limited at the present to include online education perhaps as it should.

The Object as Process. Call for Essays Situating Artistic Practice (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:21am
German A. Duarte
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, November 30, 2019

Objective

As a research team devoted to artistic practice, we are motivated by the questions: How does artistic practice lead to the production of knowledge? How does, in turn, artistic knowledge relate to its material base? How does contingent materiality guide the artist towards finding form and developing a statement?

The proposed volume is consecrated to the object as a process in order to offer new insights into the ways the object (broadly construed, comprising digital and other non-classical objects) becomes an active element in artistic practice. This exploration intends to furnish a better understanding of artistic production.

Digital Humanities: Contemporary Trends

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 31, 2020

Digital Humanities is an emerging field of study that makes an interface between the application of the digital tools and methods to the study of humanities. It’s an interdisciplinary field which utilizes the computational methods and techniques to make significant interventions in the study and research in humanities and social sciences.  In recent years, this interdisciplinary study has made remarkable changes in the tradition modes of research, and pedagogy and this has facilitated a kind of inquiry that has never been undertaken in the field of humanities.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

In a letter written to Jacques Derrida in 1982, Gilbert Simondon poses a question to the project of deconstruction: “Why not think about founding and perhaps even provisionally axiomatizing an aesthetico-technics or techno-aesthetics?” Aesthetic thought has for too long remained at the level of subjective contemplation, which effaces any substantive understanding of technology’s effects upon the larger cultural sphere. The technical and the aesthetic, Simondon contends, should instead be understood as a “continuous spectrum” of experience, as each are composed of a “set of sensations” that emerge as matter is transformed, whether by the artist, the engineer, the designer, or the machinist.

This panel examines the teaching of college writing, rhetoric, and composition in the digital age by exploring rhetorical situations, genres, and technologies in both the professional and academic realms, with particular attention to digital rhetoric, pedagogy, information and media literacy, and literary and cultural studies.
