Space, Haunting, Discourse
15-18 June, 2006
The department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, invites session
organizers and presentations for an international, multidisciplinary
conference with a focus on different relationships between space, haunting
and discourse. We are very happy that a number of people from different
countries and disciplines responded to our first call, which means that the
conference will be a truly international and interdisciplinary forum for
presentations and discussions related to the conference themes.
This is a call for proposals for 2 areas of the Mid-Atlantic Pop/Am.
Culture Annual Conference. The 2005 conference will be held at the Hyatt
Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, NJ from November 4-6, 2005. The 2 areas
are: "This Builds That: The Architecture of Literature" and "Technology and
the Home"; descriptions are below. I look forward to receiving proposals at

The Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association (CEA-CC) plans to
publish the proceedings of its Spring 2005 conference on "Transgression and
Taboo." We are seeking an additional 5 papers to supplement this volume. We
are interested in essays that explore instances of the dialectics of
transgression and taboo in theoretical, poetical, fictional and dramatic texts.
We are particularly interested in papers that explore the intersection
between transgression, taboo, and incest.
Call for Papers: 'Reconstructing Hybridity'; An Anthology of Critical Essays
We will greatly welcome your original high-quality contribution to the
volume Reconstructing Hybridity which will provide an interesting
international forum for the discussion of hybridity. In recent years,
hybridity has become one of the most important and influential as well as
contested concepts in post-colonial theory. While theorists like Homi
Bhabha have used it to describe the effective and productive conditions of
culture, others like Aijaz Ahmad criticize the application of the term as a
form of postmodern alienation, devoid of historical particularity.

CFP: Political Perelman RSA (Rhetoric Society of America) 2006
Beginning with the statement, ?We combat uncompromising and irreducible philosophical oppositions presented by all kinds of absolutisms? (510), Chaim Perelman and Lucie Olbrechts-Tyteca close The New Rhetoric on a decidedly political note. They suggest that a new rhetoric that explicitly describes modern discourse exposes the political structures of that discourse, and thus has political as well as philosophical utility. However, during its initial reception, the political implications of a new rhetoric were overshadowed in the flurry of interest over the ?universal audience? and other markedly philosophical questions.
