CFP: Converging at the Vanishing Point (ECWCA Apr 8-10, 2010)

updated: 
Thursday, September 3, 2009 - 3:58pm
East Central Writing Center Association

Writing centers are at an interesting time in our history. During the past two decades, many of us—in four-year and two-year institutions, and even secondary schools—have moved from the margins to the center as we become more professionalized, better funded and more physically visible in well-designed spaces. In essence, we have converged with larger institutional structures and missions.
• What have we gained from this convergence? And what price do we pay?
• When we give up being marginalized, do we sacrifice independence?
• Do we risk giving up important parts of our identity—or vanishing altogether?
• What aspects of your writing center are in danger of vanishing? What aspects would you like to see vanish? How or why?

CFP Philosophy and Kafka August 2-6, 2010

INternational Society for the Study of European Ideas

CALL FOR PAPERS
for a Workshop on "Philosophy and Kafka" to be held at the 12th international conference of ISSEI (International Society for the Study of European Ideas) at Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey on August 2-6, 2010. The theme of the conference is "Thought in Science and Fiction."

It is sometimes said that Franz Kafka's novels and stories defy philosophic extrapolation. Conversely, it has also been suggested that precisely the tendency of Kafka's writings to elude discursive solution is itself a philosophical tendency, one that is somehow contributing to a wiser relationship of human beings with language.
