Identity


'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'

Karli June Cerankowski, Stanford University; Megan Milks, University of Illinois at Chicago

"Asexual: a person who does not experience sexual attraction." This definition is provided on the homepage of the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), a web community of nearly 30,000 members worldwide that is generally considered the mouthpiece of the asexual community. AVEN's political platform calls for the depathologization of asexuality and the recognition of asexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation, with AVEN working toward these goals through an engagement with a variety of media – their website, blogs and discussion boards, guest appearances on television talk shows, documentary film, and participation in public events like Pride parades and public sex workshops.

LOVE AND SEX IN ALAN MOORE, EDITED COLLECTION [July 15 deadline for abstracts]

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 - 9:23am
Defiance College

With the publication of Lost Girls and 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom, the centrality of love and sex in Alan Moore's work has become indisputable. Thus far, however, little scholarly attention has been paid to this facet of his work. This collection, provisionally titled *Lost Loves: Why Men and Women Make It (or Don't) in the Work of Alan Moore*, aims to remedy that situation.

Keynote speaker (to be confirmed): Prof David Leatherbarrow, University of Pennsylvania School of Design

Is architecture a cult of the externalised object? It would seem so: of 46 images of prize winning entries on the 2009 World Architecture Festival website, for example, only four show interiors.[2] So efficiently are interior and exterior sealed off from each other that they are frequently treated as discrete professional domains. However, inside and outside are always ready to be reversed and today's spaces may seem even more involuted, fragile and unsettled than those of the past.

More than one commentator has mentioned that science fiction as a form is where theological narrative went after Paradise Lost, and this is undoubtedly true…The form is often used as a way of acting out the consequences of a theological doctrine….Extraterrestrials have taken the place of angels, demons, fairies and saints, though it must be said that this last group is now making a comeback.
