[UPDATE]The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices.

updated: 
Wednesday, August 25, 2010 - 1:51pm
Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana

Current Deadline: January 1, 2011. The Atrium: A Journal of Academic Voices presents a unique forum for the community of professionals engaged in post secondary education and research. We seek both creative writing (short stories and poetry) and academic articles (both narrative and research) that invite discussion across the disciplines. We also publish book and website reviews. The Atrium intends to be a passageway of ideas and practice across the disciplines. There is a murky landscape that practitioners must traverse on their way from Learning Theory to Instructional Practice: we seek papers that describe best practices and student engagement of controversial topics.

Justin Rogers-Cooper & Neil Meyer / NEMLA: Northeast Modern Language Association

Brian Massumi writes that affect is "ever on the move from situation to situation." This observation might also describe the use of affect in contemporary scholarship, and raises question around periodization and the stable categories we use in our discipline to demarcate historical boundaries.

Karl Persson, University of British Columbia

Since Morton Bloomfield's initial identification of wisdom as an under-discussed category in Old English literature, two critical responses have emerged. On one hand, numerous critics have proven him right by taking his suggestion in a variety of fruitful critical directions; such critics include T. A. Shippey, Elaine Tuttle Hansen, Susan Deskis, Carolyne Larrington, Paul Cavill, and T. D. Hill.

This year the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor's Writer's Festival will include panels on the relationship between faith and fiction or faith and poetry. We invite artists, scholars, teachers, or graduate students of creative writing to submit 300-500 word abstracts for paper presentations on the role of faith in the artist's life or work, critiques of contemporary faith-inspired artists, or any other relevant topic. Also, we are accepting proposals on pedagogical methods for teaching creative writing. What are practical assignments that have worked well to inspire students? What obstacles do 21st century writers face? How have you taught students to succeed in the face of new challenges? Or other relevant topics.

Persons and Things: a Roundtable in Memorial to Barbara Johnson

updated: 
Tuesday, August 24, 2010 - 5:21pm
NEMLA Convention April 2010

In celebration of the life and work of Barbara Johnson, we will focus on one of her last books and its significance for fields ranging from law to film to the history of art. The essays in Persons and Things bring together concerns from throughout Johnson's career, and we will ponder her lifetime impact on criticism. She provokes us to reconsider the self-evident yet slippery difference between persons and mere objects, how 'non-life seems to lie behind what is considered most deeply human.' Abstracts are due September 30 and can be emailed directly to Charles Henebry, Boston University, henebry@bu.edu

CFP on Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Virus and the Viral

Excursions: An Interdisciplinary Journal

The logic of the virus has become endemic. Viral ads mirror contagion to convey their message. Computers and systems are struck down by infections. Pigs and birds are transformed into sinister hosts. Terrorists form cells and virulent covert networks, globalisation becomes a creeping homogenisation attacking the idiosyncratic, and media rapidly evolve to overcome any censorial attempt at information immunisation.
