Abstract Deadline Extended to May 25, 2008

In 1961, John F. Kennedy said of his “Food for Peace” program that “Food is
strength, and food is peace, and food is freedom…” This panel invites
papers that address those connections. Adequate access to resources is
fundamental to assuring peace. Discussions of literature revealing problems
of sustenanceâ€"-i.e. nutritious food and clean water--in a global economy are
especially welcome, as are multiple and interdisciplinary perspectives.

Tuna Erdem

Fetishism is used in three distinct but, arguably, interconnected ways: commodity fetishism, sexual
fetishism and religious fetishism. In all cases, the fetish is always, an object that exceeds both its
value and its function as a mere object and always a stand-in for something else. This conference
aims to explore what this “something else” may be, how the substitution functions and the possible
connections between the three kinds of fetishism.
Papers are solicited from disciplines that include, but are not limited to, cultural studies, film
studies, literature, art history, cultural anthropology, sociology, psychology, psychoanalysis,

Issue 7: HAUNTING

The idea of haunting points to a residue or surplus of meaning that cannot be affirmed in the
present and nevertheless makes itself known in unexpected and disruptive ways. The haunting
traces of the forgotten, the disavowed and the effaced fundamentally undermine and trouble
what we have come to know and rely on as, or in, the present. In this sense, haunting opens up
the complex possibility of spectral knowledge and emerges as a powerful tool of
conceptualisation and representation.

CFP: [Computing-Internet] "Discursive Treatments of Media and Materiality" 4th Annual Digital Assembly Conference

The University of Florida's graduate student group, the Digital Assembly
(http://www.english.ufl.edu/da) in the Department of English is hosting its 4th Annual
conference. Branching beyond game studies, we are looking to cross disciplinary lines
incorporating research and original works from various fields including English, Art and Art
History, and Visual Anthropology to name a few. We are particularly interested in discursive
practices and the role and implication of media conventions in the above fields especially given
the rising importance of materiality in criticism and analysis.
