The 2015 issue of the 29th volume of Études Francophones, entitled "(Un)/veiling the Self: Contested Desires," invites contributions exploring the avatars of the veil in the era of globalization, with emphasis on contemporary Francophone spaces. In France, and more recently, in Quebec, the veil has been a site of multiple contentions that illuminate dichotomies such as religious vs. secular, private vs. public, local vs. global, self vs. other. These contentions are moments that deserve reflection, as they invite us to rethink these polarities in terms of contiguity.
Columns - "Time"
The manipulation and treatment of time in film, television, and digital media has been subject to many different styles and interpretations across Hollywood's history, and therein time itself. Time is a factor that is often used to enhance and/or complicate narratives and filmic elements, which in turn attempts to intensify our viewing and interactive experiences. The aim of this issue is to explore time in its different forms and the roles it plays in film, television, and digital media - and to also take into account the role it plays for the audience.
Columns welcomes submissions of approximately 800-3,500 words (5-15 pages) in Chicago format. Topics may include but are not limited to:
The Organising Committee of the 12th Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference invites submissions aiming to expand both the knowledge and awareness of the discipline of piano pedagogy and the interpretation of keyboard music in general. Proposals for scholarly papers, recitals, lecture-recitals, as well as discussion topics suitable for open fora on any aspect of piano pedagogy and/or performance are welcome for consideration.

The work of graduate students is an increasingly public business. Yet graduate training typically features little to no training in how to navigate this brave new world. Those who mentor and teach graduate students are often hesitant to offer advice, and institutions are slow to recognize the value of public scholarship. Much of the best thinking on public scholarship has come from graduate students, adjuncts, and other populations that are often marginalized in the university. This panel will seek to contribute to this ongoing grassroots recalibration of graduate education.
