Chiasma: A Site for Thought is pleased to invite submissions for its sixth issue, on the theory and philosophy of “disenchantment”. While the contemporary world roils from accelerated inequality across diverse sectors of the global population; technological advancement and complexification; proliferating ‘connectedness’; network, information, and media sinkholes within which the distinction between fact and value is increasingly void—and all this in the midst of great political absurdity—disenchantment, in all its Janus-faced nuance, is again critical to be thought today.

Walls, Wells, or Welcomes: Libraries in the Lives of Immigrants, Old and New
The Library History Round Table (LHRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) seeks papers for its Research Forum at the 2019 ALA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., June 20-25, 2019. The theme of the Forum will be re-examining the relationship between libraries and immigrants/immigration, in any country, any region of the world.
The long Eighteenth Century is the time when ocular-centric thought established itself in Western society. Images and illustrations permeated textual spaces to the point that few books were printed without illustrations. From arts to sciences via fiction and geographic literature, the eighteenth-century citizen was therefore exposed to wide array of visual and textual combinations as part of his/her everyday life.
This one-day symposium will be held at Mount Royal University, Calgary, Canada on March 8, 2019.
For its 6th symposium, the Enlightenment Group welcomes 20-minute paper proposals engaging with:
