Creativity and Knowledge Cultures

Creativity is an object of study, a process of knowledge production, and a contemporary cultural obsession that crosses many disciplines. This special issue of Knowledge Cultures (http://www.addletonacademicpublishers.com/knowledge-cultures) seeks to generate new and potentially disruptive conversations about creativity by paying attention to the diversity – and, perhaps, even, incommensurability – of knowledge practices around creativity that exist across a broad range of disciplinary fields.

The Academic job interview isn't a monolithic entity: each academic institution--ranging from research universities to community colleges--has its own processes. Learning to navigate these different environments is difficult, and job seekers can benefit from hearing from a wide range of stakeholders (administrators, departments chairs, junior faculty, etc.)

To that end, we are calling for a wide range of voices to join our roundtable and examine the academic job interview from a variety of perspectives.

Please submit brief abstracts (200 words) and a bio by Sep 30, 2016.

To submit, please use NeMLA's portal: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/login

Premodern Futurities: Speculative Objects and Prognostication in the Medieval World (Kalamazoo 2017)

Interpreting the medieval arts entails setting in motion forms of anachronism; within the arts we see complex negotiations of temporality, which themselves pose significant challenges to our understanding of historical objects. Scholars have been both resistant to and complicit in these forms, a challenge of historicism having been, to a greater or lesser extent, to unlearn certain histories in order to “restore” the contingency of a specific historical moment. For, indeed, medieval people theorized futures of their own. They refined procedures of prognostication and speculation, and, significantly, crafted aesthetic objects that imagined divergent futurities.

'Gendered Innovations in the Social Sciences'

7-9 November 2016, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia

What impact does women's limited presence in key fields of research have upon our capacity to grapple with social and political change? And if gender is ignored as an analytic category, can the social sciences make a meaningful contribution to understanding or resolving issues of gender inequality in society? 

Human Rights Discourse in Antebellum America

This panel will explore the presence of eighteenth-century human rights discourse in antebellum American culture. We will have two goals: first, to seek persistences of eighteenth-century human rights theory even as it was eclipsed by discourses of Nationalism, European Imperialism, Anglo-Saxonism, scientific racism, economic determinism, and so on in the nineteenth century; second, to articulate the relationship of Enlightenment cosmopolitanism to the forces that would stifle it during the period between the American/French Revolutions and the post-WWII resurgence of human rights.
