2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Love in Excess, the still-popular work of fiction that launched the print career of one of the most important authors of the entire eighteenth century. The Early Atlantic Reading Group at Purdue University therefore calls for papers and non-fatal enquiries in celebration of all aspects of Eliza Haywood’s work, career, and world (such expansive topics might include bibliography, women’s book history, theatricals, the Hillarians, or even Haywood and Crusoe—which also marks its 300th birthday in 2019). Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Manushag N. Powell (email@example.com) on or before August 20, 2018.

Catherine Malabou opens Before Tomorrow (2014) with a striking yet seemingly simple question: ‘Why has the question of time lost its status as the leading question of philosophy?’ At one time, once upon a time, time led the way to the meaning of being, so why has no one ‘taken up the problem by trying to develop afresh a decisive concept of temporality?’ And, more, why does no one even ask this question anymore?

In the first decades of the crisis, vital struggles over the meanings, definitions and representations of AIDS sought to unite cultural analysis with cultural activism.
