Publishing a manuscript rewards the author in several ways. The wide review of the book will certainly establish the author's fame in the world of letters. A literary prize or a fellowship may be awarded to the artist, whose compositions will be appreciated by innumerable magazines.
Poems and stories may be submitted by all authors, whether first-time or published writers. The poems (maximum 35 lines), essays, short stories, literary articles and reviews (maximum 2500 words) must be in English. Poems with a special layout should be sent by email as an attachment using Microsoft Word.
Haikus may also be submitted. (Maximum 10)
Esperanto Essays and Poems with English translations may also be submitted.
The matter sent for publication must be an original creation of the author. The plagiarised work should not be submitted. Your submission declares that the work is original, and your own.
This panel discussion will explore how aesthetics might be understood not only as an end in literary form/production, but also as a means by which medieval artists (poets, writers, illuminators, jewelers, smiths, etc.) attempted to establish a rhetorical or authoritative stance.
The session will examine aesthetics more as 'techne' than 'telos' (though not necessarily excluding the latter). I particularly seek contributions from scholars in areas outside of literary study, that is, from such disciplines as manuscript studies, art history, philosophy, and theology.
Presenters should present a brief (5-7 minutes) introduction of their work in this area. This will be followed by an open discussion between panel members and the audience.

Graduate Student Conference:
Globalization and Aesthetics
The recent global recession has reignited debates on the social, political and cultural implications of globalization. Though the term 'globalization' is most often used to describe processes associated with the rise of neoliberal economies across the globe, these structural changes are themselves embedded in much longer histories of colonization and exploitation on the one hand, and transnational and cross-cultural exchanges on the other. Scholars such as Gayatri Spivak, Edward Said, Stuart Hall, Fredric Jameson, Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri have theorized globalization and mapped its complex histories and forms.
Georgia State New Voices Conference 2010, October 7-9: What makes us laugh? Why is humor such an important cross-cultural phenomenon and universal human trait? What are the genres of humor and comedy? Can postmodernism and critical theory be funny? How can we teach humor? What are the theories of laughter? How do we research and write about humor, comedy, laughter, wit, satire, and jokes across disciplines? How global is humor? What is the place of humor in academia and in popular culture?
