The Flow Conference (Oct. 26 -29, 2006; Austin, TX) -- a series of roundtable
discussions with topics created by Flow (http://www.flowtv.org)columnists,
organized around the future of television and media culture -- is now accepting
submissions to join a roundtable. Deadline for submission is: June 15, 2006

The goal of the Flow Conference is conversation. There are no plenary sessions
and participants are asked to submit short position papers (not full-length
essays). We want to promote discussion amongst scholars, members of the media
industries, media activists, fans, and policy-makers over crucial issues
related to television and media.

As we are finalizing the program for the Society for the Study of
American Women Writers Conference, to be held November 8-11, 2006, in
Philadelphia, we have decided to add a session, hopefully of between two
and four panels, on two areas that are relatively new for the SSAWW:
1. women's popular culture and 2. third-wave feminism.

If you are interested in presenting a paper on either of these two broad
topics, please contact me (at dek7_at_lehigh.edu) as soon as possible, but
definitely before June 30.

The book, provisionally titled (In)fusion Approach,
Interdisciplinarity and Salman Rushdie, is nearly

theory. The first section has several essays that
critique (In)fusion theory in relation to aesthetics,
postmodernism, translation theories, environmental
ethics, communication theory among other theoretical
paradigms.
The second section of the book focuses on the use of
this theory and the reading of the fictional works of
Salman Rushdie. It is for this section that I would
like to consider abstracts on Rushdie's novels Fury
and Shalimar the Clown.
The abstracts need to focus on the following things:
