fethallah KARIM

In this paper, the transfer matrix method based on the coupled mode theory is presented to analyze the raised-cosine chirped sampled fiber Bragg grating. This filter is proposed for the purpose of dispersion compensation in wavelength division multiplexing systems.
Simulation results show that five channels can be obtained in a bandwidth of 0.6 nm, with the dispersion of -1400 ps/nm. The wavelength spacing between two neighboring channels is 0.8 nm.

American Polynesian Pop-Culture at Mid-Century MA Dissertation

Ashley Roop, MA student, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London

I am working on a Masters degree at Central Saint Martins in London and for my dissertation I am designing a hypothetical exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and I will also be publishing a corresponding catalog (200+ pages) to go along with the exhibition. Being a fan of Polynesian Pop and all things tiki for nearly half my life and given total free reign to chose whatever topic I want, I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to work on a major project I really cared about. My project will focus on the Polynesian Pop movement of the mid-20th century rather than today.

Genre Migration in Antebellum Popular Print Culture (Proposed MMLA Special Session--November 12, 2009-November 15, 2009)

Timothy Helwig/Western Illinois University

Antebellum popular print culture was notoriously fluid, as texts regularly migrated from one genre to another. For example, popular city-mysteries of the 1840s and 1850s drew upon sensational crime-reporting and were often first serialized in weekly story papers and then printed in a series of pamphlets before being compiled and sold as complete novels. This session invites papers that explore any aspect of genre migration during the rich emergence of the penny press, the black press, and the labor press in the pre-Civil War period. How does the migration of texts from one genre to the next affect their meaning and their reception? What common interests did these print sources share on questions of racial, ethnic, or class identity?

Dear Contributors

I got informed from the editors that more than 90 paper proposals had submitted an abstract for the publication "Skin, Culture and Psychoanalysis". Unfortunately it was not all of us who got a place within the publication. I am trying to gather the contributors who are interested in the topics on -racialization and the production of "national skins" and migration, critical whiteness and Psychoanalysis, to make another publication on this more specific themes. If you are interested in this "alternative" publication, please contact me.

Best regards
