Call for Submissions: PostHuman Joyce: Machines, Informatics, Technology (edited collection)
“In conception and technique I tried to depict the earth which is prehuman and presumably posthuman.” (Joyce, discussing “Penelope” in a letter to Harriet Shaw Weaver, 8 February 1922, Letters 1:180, Selected Letters, p. 289)
Essay proposals are invited for a collection entitled Posthuman Joyce: Machines, Informatics, Technology. The relation between Joyce and cyberculture has garnered increasing attention within Joyce studies, but Joyce’s relation to the posthuman is not often addressed. The posthuman is itself a varied concept: it encompasses the three “waves” of cybernetics—the homeostatic, the reflexive and the virtual; it includes the amalgam of the human being and mechanical and/ or electronic devices; it also includes a thoroughgoing critique of the ideal of disembodied information that would make the seamless union of the human being and intelligent machine possible. The essays in this volume will explore all facets of the posthuman in its relation to Joyce and Joyce studies. Leer el resto de esta entrada »

La revista internacional de estudios sobre Baudrillard abre la convocatoria para el envío de artículos acerca de Baudrillard y la política:
A number of conflicting political epithets have been attached to the name Jean Baudrillard: Maoist, neo-conservative, neo-Marxist, post-Marxist, anarcho-primitivist, postmodernist, ultra-leftist, nouveaux philosophe, situationist, aristocrat, 68er, nihilist, Gnostic, relativist, reactionary romantic, anti-feminst, and so on. This is perhaps symptom of our transpolitical age. However, what might be the relation of Baudrillard’s thought to the political? Is there a Baudrillardian politics? Can his ideas illuminate key cultural and theoretical questions in new and politically productive ways? How might his work question the very assumptions, sanctions, and foundation of emancipatory and progressive politics? The International Journal of Baudrillard Studies invites papers for a special edition that explore, demonstrate, and question, the efficacy of Baudrillard’s ideas for addressing key questions of the political.

– Call for Papers –
18th June 2011
University of Liverpool
Keynote Lectures from: Professor Adam Roberts (Royal Holloway, University of London), Mr Andy Sawyer (Science Fiction Foundation Collection Librarian; Director of MA in Science Fiction Studies, University of Liverpool)
CRSF is a postgraduate conference designed to promote the research of speculative fictions including, but not limited to, science fiction, fantasy and horror.
Our aim is to showcase some of the latest developments in this dynamic and evolving field, by providing a platform for the presentation of current research by postgraduates. The conference will also encourage the discussion of this research and the construction of crucial networks with fellow researchers. The University of Liverpool is a leading centre for the study of speculative fiction, being home to the Science Fiction Foundation Collection, and is thus ideally suited to such a cause.
This year we would like to focus on encouraging postgraduates to network with others in their field, and related areas, whilst also demonstrating the depth and breadth of research currently being conducted into speculative fiction. Leer el resto de esta entrada »
