MUSIC AND POSTMODERN CULTURAL THEORY (AUSTRALIA)

CALL FOR PAPERS

International Conference
University of Melbourne
Australia
5-6 December 2006

Twenty years after the term "postmodernism" became common currency in
analyses of contemporary literature, architecture, visual arts,
philosophy and popular culture, we still find the editor of the recent
Cambridge Companion to Postmodernism (2004) lamenting "the strange
absence of a mature postmodernist discourse within music studies," and
suggesting that "the relative conservatism and autonomy of the world of
academic music study may account for its long resistance to
postmodernist formulations and arguments."

Decoding Literature in Conflict
Graduate Conference
Saint Louis University, Madrid, Spain
June 9, 2006

Sometimes violent, sometimes passive, literature not only relates conflict,
but also creates it. At Saint Louis University Madrid's 4th-annual graduate
conference, we invite our peers to consider "Decoding Conflict in
Literature." From the nuclear family to nuclear warfare, the Spanish Civil
War to colonial unrest, writers dealing with conflict in literature require
and demand their readers' attention and response.

Westminster English Colloquia Series
– Call for Papers –
Unpacking the Library: Literatures and their Archives.

The history of Western culture is punctuated by affirmations of the presence,
rebirth, or return of literature. Such affirmation involves, necessarily, if
implicitly or symbolically, a turn toward the archival forms of the text – that
is, traditionally speaking, a turn toward the codex and the library. This
recourse to textual holdings of various kinds clearly involves often
unacknowledged complexities of institutional, technical and cultural issues.
