CALL FOR PAPERS

In 1952, in his essay on the Goethian idea of Weltliteratur, Erich Auerbach stated that “our philological home is the earth: it can no longer be the nation. The most priceless and indispensable part of a philologist’s heritage is still his own nation’s culture and language. Only when he is first separated from this heritage, however, and then transcends it does it become truly effective.” The essay ends with the idea that the spirit [Geist] is not national, and that the one who thinks of the world entirely as a place of exile can “earn a proper love of the world.” Auerbach’s crowning Mimesis was, of course, written from Istanbul, while he was in exile during the second World War. A masterpiece within our discipline of Comparative Literature, Mimesis is a critical example of how displacement might be that which enables the very act of comparison itself. (more…)

Due Sep 17 | Call for Proposals for the 17th Annual CUNY IT Conference

CALL FOR PROPOSALS
CUNY’s 17th Annual IT Conference
Thursday and Friday, November 29 and 30, 2018

Technology and Education: Challenges and Opportunities

CUNY’s 17th Annual IT Conference will explore the complicated balance between the challenges and opportunities of using technology in higher education. There is no doubt that technology connects our lives and underlies many educational offerings. This comes with a set of inherent challenges, both mundane and serious. Educators and universities must grapple with what technologies to use in our classrooms, and how to equip our students with the technological literacy they need both to succeed and make informed choices outside of school. Our movements, metrics, and digital footprints are tracked in ways that were inconceivable just decades ago, and data often seems vulnerable to security threats. Nevertheless, technology brings true opportunities in the nature of enhanced engagement, access, and interconnection, to name a few. (more…)

Deadline May 20 | The Advocate Call for Contributions

NEVER SUBMIT, CONTRIBUTE!

The Advocate invites everyone to contribute to the conversations on Revolution and Sovereignty that we have sustaining since last semester. Building on our recent double issue on the question of sovereignty (http://gcadvocate.com[gcadvocate.com]), we are now accepting contributions that expand these conversations to a wide array of social and political fields.

It is time we accept that we live in radical times, and to ask what sorts of revolutions we can not only imagine but also plan. CUNY occupies a unique position in New York City’s cultural and academic landscape, and we believe we can provide a platform that can harness that potential and build a real conversation about sustainable and radical change. It is far too easy to lead with despair these days, and our only effective option is to work together, and think together, as we never have before. We request that you write for us and talk to the vast political community this university can cultivate, and that you encourage your undergraduates to do so as well.

We’re interested in essays that historicize and criticize our understanding of revolutionary transformations of all kinds, whether by that you mean revolutionary polities or revolutionary bodies. How do they shape the ways in which we map and organize the world we inhabit? Talk to us about hurricanes, about civil rights, about quantum physics, about Audre Lorde and Agha Shahid Ali— about what it means for revolution to simultaneously be a temporal ritual, an aesthetic epiphany, a shift in scientific paradigms, and a political desire baked deep into our collective psyche.

We particularly invite science writers who can contribute regularly on diverse topical subjects and on scientific practice in the current political climate.

The deadline for contributing to the next issue is May 20.

Please do send your impressions, your thoughts, and your ideas to our Editor-in-Chief, Bhargav Rani, at brani@gradcenter.cuny.edu. Also ‘cc’ to advocate@cunydsc.org.

 And yes, we pay for articles!

​The Advocate pays $100-$120 for articles that are around 1500-2000 words, and about $150-$200 for longer essays that entail more research and labor. Other contributions like reviews and photo essays will also be compensated for at competitive rates. And of course, we promise enthusiastic editorial support and love from our team!

We look forward to some excellent contributions from you!

“Community College and the Future of the Humanities”
#humsCC

A National Conference Convened by LaGuardia Community College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York

October 18 and 19, 2018

Community colleges are redefining the importance and centrality of the humanities to the lives of the “new majority” of students, both during their academic careers and after graduation. To explore and celebrate the role of humanities within community colleges and across the broader landscape of higher education, the CUNY Humanities Alliance[cunyhumanitiesalliance.us17.list-manage.com] invites proposals from college students, graduate students, faculty, and administrators for interactive sessions at “Community College and the Future of Humanities” conference.

Due April 1 | CfP – Shift Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture, Issue 11

Call For Papers: Shift: Graduate Journal of Visual and Material Culture, Issue 11

BLOOD AND EARTH AND SOIL

Oppositional claims to land, heritage, and state have rapidly crescendoed in the last year of the Trumpian order. White supremacist overtures emerged last summer in Charlottesville with chants of “Blood and Soil,” the infamous Nazi slogan advocating racial purity located in the earth of the homeland. At the same time, political activists and environmentalists have made inherently anti-fascist counter-claims to land and ancestry, such as the Indigenous activists who opposed the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock and critiqued “Muslim ban” travel restrictions with the phrase “No Ban on Stolen Land.” Leftist intellectuals have also sought to deploy protests towards collective, and problematically assimilationist, approaches to environmental stewardship. While such thinkers approach the Earth’s maintenance in terms of the commons, techno-capitalist oligarchs are poised to abandon the planet to the forces of material extraction as they look to the oceans (as in “Seasteaders” seeking to colonize special economic zones), or to outer space (as in Elon Musk’s spectacularized extraterrestrial pollution with branded explorations into commercial space travel).

The Advocate Call for Contributions

NEVER SUBMIT, CONTRIBUTE!

This spring, the Advocate invites everyone to build on the conversations on Revolution and Sovereignty that we have sustaining since the fall semester. Adding to our first issue on the idea of revolution and the second on its resonances in artistic and cultural practices, we now accepting contributions that expand these conversations to wide array of social and political fields. We are particularly interested in, but not limited to, articles that explore revolution in relation to Ecology, Climate Change and Scientific Practice.

It is time we accept that we live in radical times, and to ask what sorts of revolutions we can not only imagine but also plan. CUNY occupies a unique position in New York City’s cultural and academic landscape, and we believe we can provide a platform that can harness that potential and build a real conversation about sustainable and radical change. It is far too easy to lead with despair these days, and our only effective option is to work together, and think together, as we never have before.
