CALL FOR PAPERS “Mapping the Mediterranean: Space, Memory, and the Long Road to Modernity” University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
11-12 October 2013
Keynote Panel: “The Present and Future of Mediterranean Studies”
Yasser Ellhariry, Dartmouth College
Gail Holst-Warhaft, Cornell University
Sharon Kinoshita, University of California, Santa Cruz
Karla Mallette, University of Michigan (chair)
The Mediterranean served as a site of transit, exchange, and interaction for well over two millennia, demonstrating tendencies towards both unification and dispersion. With the onset of modernity, however, linguistic, ethnic, and national boundaries solidified across the region. Language, history, memory, and space itself were literally reshaped by the tools of archaeology, architecture, tourism, mass print, national education, and transportation.
In recent years, scholarship has begun to excavate past connections and exchanges that belie our modern conception of the region, mapping out a diverse – yet united – series of Mediterranean identities centered on the connecting sea.
Mediterranean Topographies, the University of Michigan’s Interdisciplinary Workshop on Mediterranean Studies, is pleased to announce its second conference for graduate students and young faculty. Our symposium attempts to bring this new model – one that is deeply transnational and cross-cultural, yet situated primarily within the ancient, pre- and early-modern periods – into meaningful dialogue with modernity. We will engage the space of the Mediterranean through the cityscape, as seen through the lenses of literature, history, anthropology, cultural studies, architecture, and urban planning. Areas of focus will include (but not be restricted to):
* cartography and spatiality, city planning and historical narrative, architecture and collective memory;
* ideologies of the urban, relationships between city and peripheries (hinterlands, islands, deserts etc.);
* mobility, emigration, immigration, class-stratification, ghettoization, tourism; * material history, consumption, trade, manufacturing, commodification, fashion;
* remembering the city, memoir, nostalgia;
* gendering and queering the city;
* (de)/(re)colonizing the city;
* and, in general, the destruction, re-construction, and re-imagining of the Mediterranean city space after the spread of nationalism.
Using these foci, we will explore the multiple Mediterraneans that have been built up and torn down since the onset of modernity. In short, this symposium will attempt to address the ways in which pre- and early-modern interconnectivities – both real and imagined – were destroyed, kept alive, or modulated over the long passage into modernity. Although our focus will be upon transitions stretching from the early modern to modernity (c. 1500 to today), we nonetheless encourage work that treats these same issues of urban transformation in the ancient world, especially within a diachronic, comparative framework. We also encourage contributions that focus on methodological debates and innovations for mapping and studying Mediterranean cities.
We seek to bring together work in the humanities, arts, and social sciences. We invite abstracts ranging from 200-250 words that relate to or expand upon the topics suggested above. Submissions are especially encouraged from disciplines such as literature, the history of art, history, anthropology, sociology, architecture and urbanism, gender and women’s studies, queer studies, African studies, and religious studies. Along with your abstract please suggest the category or categories to which you feel your submission is best suited. Please provide your institutional affiliation and mailing address, as well as telephone number. Indicate whether a/v equipment will be needed.
The presentation should be in English, twenty minutes in length (i.e., 10 double-spaced pages) and may address a topic from any relevant period(s) or discipline(s). Deadline for abstract submission: May 15, 2013.
Please direct questions and submissions to the Meditopos symposium co-chairs, Harry Kashdan, Will Stroebel, and Peter Kitlas, at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com.

Call for Papers: 2nd Annual Marginalised Mainstream Conference
Fading and Emerging: Tracing the Mainstream in Literature and Popular Culture
Date: 12 – 13 September 2013 , Senate House, University of London
Keynote speakers include:
Dr Kate Macdonald (Ghent University, Brussels)
Dr Nicola Humble (University of Roehampton, London)
There must be but one detective – that is, but on e protagonist – one deus ex machine. (S.S. Van dine, Rule 9, ‘Twenty Rules for Writing Detective Stories’, 1928)
[These] novels sense the potential to shift the focus away from the established centre, toward minor characters ... The more dynamic examples of assymetric characterisation do not simply represent these minor characters but represent characters becoming minor within a complex narrative system. ( Alex Woloch, The One vs. the Many, 2003)
‘Fading and Emerging: Tracing the Mainstream in Literature and Popular Culture’ , the second annual Marginalised Mainstream conference , is seeking submissions from postgraduate students, early career academics and established researchers working in the fields of Literature, Cultural Studies and elsewhere in the Humanities. This conference will consider the phenomenon of academic marginalisation of popular culture and the mainstream. Specifically, the conference seeks to explore the issue of fading and emerging in culturally significant forms of popular fiction that have been subject to critical marginalisation. How does the mainstream itself foster fading and emerging? How are fading and emerging dealt with in popular fictions?
We invite proposals for papers on any aspect of the theme of fading and emerging that could in clude, but are not limited to: • Fictional traces • Cross - referentiality/intertextuality • Revelations/concealment • Dawn/twilight • Wallflowers and supporting characters • Appearances and apparitions • Vanishing and waning • Deus ex machin a • Fade - in, fade - out • Styles, trends and movements • Generic inception/genesis • Fads and crazes • Failure and success • The Next Big Thing/15 minutes of fame • The icon – the ‘It’ girl, the ‘It’ film • Popular re - emergence • Disappearance • Re - creation /revisionism • Re - reading (or re - viewing) • Remakes and reboots
It goes without saying that writers, texts or topics need not be canonical . In addition, we actively encourage papers discussing writers, texts and visual media that engage with mainstream cultures from around the world.
Panels will follow the format of three 20 - minute papers followed by questions.
Abstracts of no more than 350 words are invited by Friday 17th May 2013. Acceptances will be sent out by no later than Monday 17th June 2013. Please email abstracts and a cover sheet including your name, university, contact information, plus a brief biographical paragraph about your academic interests or any enquiries to organisers Brittain Bright, Emma Grundy Haigh and Sam Goodman (email@example.com).

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 17 and 18 May 2013
Literary Texts: The Power and the Possible
What happens when a writer starts experimenting with language? Isn’t there always the temptation of being James Joyce, even in the case of classical writers? What exactly is the invention of a style, that is a personal assemblage of words that creates new relationships with language, the world, and meaning? The conference will focus on the interpretation of literary texts. A text can be read according to a continuum ranging from what Spinoza called potestas (the text tries to control the reader’s body and/or mind, it limits his/her semantic complexity) and potentia (the text helps us discover new possibilities of life, it leads to cognition rather than recognition, it increases our semantic complexity). A similar distinction is provided by the usual French translations of the Nietzschean concept of Macht which can be rendered either as pouvoir or puissance. Papers will provide a theoretical approach based on a critical analysis of one or several literary texts showing how a writer’s experiment with words alters the production of meaning and of its implications. A selection of papers will be published in the journal Imaginaires.

Past Tense, Future Tensions
Annual Conference of the SCLA
October 18 19, 2013 Guilford College Greensboro, NC
The tenuous relationship between the past, present, and future complicates the practice of creating as well as translating time in imaginary wo rks. Grammatically, tense marks more than temporality; it also highlights degrees of being that remain unreachable or forever distant. At the 2013 meeting of the Society for Comparative Literature and the Arts we will examin e what it means to stage the pa st and direct the future in our literary and artistic texts. W hether anachronistic, politicized, or asynchronous , tense marks the uneasy space where recollection and projection meet.
We welcome 250 word paper proposals or 500 word panel proposals on topics including:
Hauntology, spectres, revenants
Dystopic and utopic visions
Reimagining the past
Ludic or interactive fiction
Postmodernism and simulacra
Trauma and forgetting
Righting/Writing the past
New, old, post Historicism
Queer time and mutability
Periodization and epoch making
Responsibility/ethics in telling history
Graveyards, burial grounds, museums
Epistemologies of “post”
Prologues and epilogues
The future of literature in a digital age
Alterity Memory and memoir
Sci fi and retro futurism
Proposals should be sent to email@example.com by June 1, 2013 . Graduate students who wish to be considered for an SCLA Travel Scholarship should indicate this in their cover letter and include a short vita (2 pages maximum). We will also hold 2 undergraduate sessions and welcome undergraduate proposals (please specify).

The Researcher: An Interdisciplinary Journal
CALL FOR PAPERS for a SPECIAL ISSUE on Cyberlearning: Transforming Academic Communities with Emerging Technology
Deadline for Paper Submission: June 30, 2013
The Researcher: An Interdisciplinary Journal is a peer-reviewed journal published semiannually at Jackson State University, Jackson, Mississippi. This special issue of The Researcher welcomes scholarly research from all disciplines in the area of Cyberlearning. Planned publication date is September 30, 2013.
Universities are being transformed with the current generation of students who generally have extensive access to a wealth of technological resources. This access issues a direct call for immediate action by educators. Such technological exposure, thus, has affected students’ learning styles and created new and exciting opportunities and challenges for educators. Traditional pedagogies, alone, no longer fully engage university students in this technologically advanced age. Hence, to effectively educate today’s student and prepare them for society’s increasing reliance on technological advancements, educators must leverage emerging technological trends to create flexible cyberlearning pedagogies that adapt to and complement the learning styles of today’s students. For academic communities, these challenges entail both incorporating new technologies into traditional classroom settings and providing remote access to instruction and information.
For this special issue, we seek papers that explore the opportunities and challenges that colleges and universities face as new technologies modify existing approaches to education. Potential topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Facilitating changes in curriculum for schools using curriculum and teaching models developed for a past industrial age while learners need tools and pedagogy for today’s information-based workforce;
• Enabling cyberlearning through mobile technologies;
• Changing the classroom paradigm from teacher-centered to student-centered, where the teacher becomes a facilitator and actively participates in this new learning community as a contributor of content guidelines;
• Creating strategies for actively engaging faculty in the adoption of cyber-technologies;
• Nurturing the creativity of teachers;
• Exploring the role of social media as an educational tool;
• Utilizing virtual communities in bringing many worlds and/or communities together, including home, school, and work; and
• Customizing learning techniques enabled through technology and/or apps that promote learning of higher-order skills both within and across disciplines.
With the widespread adoption of mobile technologies (such as Jackson State University’s iPad Initiative), we also seek papers which address effective approaches for assessment of the impact of these technologies on learning across students of different subgroups, such as discipline, age, gender, race, ethnicity, classification, and varying socio-economic groups.
Submission requirements: Submissions should be less than forty pages and sent in electronic form as an attachment via email, in Microsoft Word Format in 12-point Times New Roman font, double-spaced, with two-inch margins. All maps, charts, and graphs must be camera ready. Each article should be accompanied by an abstract and have an introduction. Documentation format should follow a style appropriate to the discipline, such as MLA for humanities and APA for social and behavioral sciences. To facilitate blind review, please include a removable cover page providing the name, institutional affiliations, positions, and highest degrees earned of all authors, as well as a return address, email address and the article title; the article itself must carry only the title of the paper.
Papers will be read by a minimum of two reviewers before a publication decision is made. Reviewers’ comments and suggestions for revisions will be relayed to the author in a timely manner. For further information, please contact: Patsy J. Daniels, Editor, The Researcher, Box 17929, Jackson State University, 1400 John R. Lynch Street, Jackson, MS 39217; <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Please email submissions as an attachment to Patsy J. Daniels, Editor, at email@example.com.

The conference will be held in Paris September 11,12,13, 2014. Since David Foster Wallace’s suicide in September 2008, his works have growingly raised critical and academic interest in the United States and in the European countries where Infinite Jest has been translated (Italy and Germany). Although his essays, short stories and even his posthumous novel have been available in France for a number of years now, neither readership nor scholarly interest seem to have significantly broadened in this country.The forthcoming release of Wallace’s Magnum Opus in 2014 at Editions de l’Olivier is the occasion to address a larger audience and survey the various published and presently emerging approaches to the novel as well as to introduce Wallace’s entire œuvre. We welcome papers that focus on well-trod territories of ‘Wallace Studies’ and those exploring new aspects and themes of Wallace’s fiction, novels and short-stories. Papers reconsidering Wallace’s Infinite Jest and offering new theorical perspectives from the angle of ‘such aliens’ (Wallace, ‘Fictional Futures’) as French and Europeans thinkers are encouraged. We also welcome papers examining Wallace’s nonfiction, reports, essays and philosophical writing.
Suggested items and directions include :
- The body : drugs and addiction. Sports (tennis) and play. Depression, suffering, melancholy, medication and suicide. Hideousness. Posthumanism.
- Reading David Foster Wallace. Translating David Foster Wallace
- Contemporary entertainment, the media, TV, movies. Carnival and Jest.
- Narcissicism and empathy. Ethics. Sincerity. Attention. Affirmation. Boredom.
- Wallace’s literary influences. Metafiction, postmodernism, hysterical realism, post-postmodernism. Impact on contemporary fiction.
- Wallace and Co (Franzen, Eggers, Moody, Saunders, DeLillo…)
- Fiction and philosophy. The use of math, logic, science, medecine, psychology, technology. Free will.
- Ecology and the environment. Civilisation and society.
