Literary Culture and the Maritime Environment

Recent trends in scholarship including "Atlantic History," "historicizing the ocean," and the "new thalassology" are renovating our understandings of maritime culture. This conference focuses on literary responses to the world ocean. Shakespeare's hungry ocean and Conrad's visionary sailors reflect efforts to capture the poetry and reality of the maritime environment.

* The advantages and disadvantages of particular technologies for going beyond the facsimile, for example 3D modelling of paper/parchment versus advanced textual encoding

* The kinds of questions that cannot currently be answered by the digital surrogates we have, and how best to produce surrogates that suit our needs

* Case studies of particular projects, their achievements and the lessons learnt

Rhizomes "Becoming-Girl" Special Issue (Expanded CFP/Extended Deadline)

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 - 12:33am
Leandra Preston / University of Central Florida

Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, a peer-reviewed online journal, invites submissions for its thematic issue, "Becoming-Girl." Deleuze articulates the notion of becoming as existing through multiplicity and alliances, a process that does not have a beginning or end, but is always in-progress; becoming is, much like girlhood, intermezzo. Deleuze claims that "Girls do not belong to an age group, sex, order, or kingdom: they slip in everywhere, between orders, acts, ages, sexes." Girls' identities, interactions and relationships, particularly in cyber-contexts, are rhizomatic, complex, bordering the virtual and reality in their multiple becomings.
