qui parle invites submissions for its upcoming issue, to be released in

dialogues that take place between disciplines and which challenge
conventional understandings of reading and scholarship in academia.

The editors will consider all papers that speak to our commitment to
publishing the very best of international scholars working on a variety of
disciplines, including philosophy, literature, history, and visual
culture. Papers treating questions surrounding epistemologies of

encouraged.

CFP: The Aesthetics of Tolerance

Western Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Convention
Tempe, Arizona, Feb 17-19, 2005

Papers are invited for a panel that will consider both
representations of religious tolerance and the aesthetic itself as a
means to promote tolerance in the Enlightenment. Papers that consider
toleration in relation to anxieties about Enlightenment modes of
disciplinarity, the containment of conversation in the public sphere,
or the ideological interests served by the promotion of toleration
are welcome, as are investigations of the rhetoric of tolerance, the
formation of liberal subjectivity, and ambivalent treatments of
tolerance.
