[DEADLINE EXTENDED to 30 July 2020] Weird Sciences and the Sciences of the Weird

PULSE: the Journal of Science and Culture
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, July 30, 2020

Recent scientific discoveries in climatology, animal cognition and microbiology have radically altered our conceptions of ourselves and the environment we live in, both on micro and macroscales. Zooming in on the human microbiome and out to the planetary ecosystem, or even further into infinite cosmic spaces, the sciences are revealing strange dynamics of human-nonhuman interconnectedness, doing away with the established anthropocentrism and the idea of human exceptionalism.

Extended Deadline: Shared Futures: The Symbiosis of the Humanities and the Sciences

Monday, February 10, 2020 - 3:50pm
University at Albany English Graduate Student Organization
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020

The relationship between the sciences and the humanities is one that is currently marked by tension. Often viewed as distinct in their approaches to collecting and creating data, the two fields rarely come together to combine methodologies and form what could be a powerful symbiosis of qualitative and quantitative research. For our 18th annual conference, the English Graduate Student Organization is especially interested in exploring the past, present, and future relationships between STEM and the humanities.

Neoliberalism in Literature and Media Studies [SAMLA 2020]

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 - 2:41pm
Michael J. Blouin / Milligan College
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 1, 2020

DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED! Over the past seventy years, neoliberal thinkers have strategically reinvented classical liberal ideals in order to privilege a sense of personal freedom over the perceived overreach of government intervention. Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become the central tenet of American life. It is now nearly impossible, for example, to imagine any mainstream voice espousing tax hikes or championing the sorts of policies enacted under Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson. Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life. This epistemic shift can be felt far and wide, from politicians to postmodern theorists.
