presentations last April, the conference organizers are now inviting
supplemental submissions to the “Graven Images” collection from further
individuals who did not read their papers live at the 2008 conference.

Polygraph 22â€"Call for Papers

Special Issue: Ecology and Ideology

The contemporary moment abounds with speculation concerning our ecological
future. Specialists in a variety of fields forecast immanent catastrophe,
stemming from a combination of climate change, fossil-fuel depletion, and
consumer waste. The recent bestowal of the Nobel Peace Prize on a group of
scientists studying climate change indicates the degree to which "peace"
has come to signify ecological balance; even the declaration by the Vatican
of a new set of "7 Deadly Sins for the modern age" includes pollution in an
attempt to grapple with the potential of individuals to inflict ecological
damage on a global scale.

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.
