CFP: Computing/Theorizing/Communicating

How do we, both consciously and unconsciously, shape our tools and vice
versa? The Computer Studies in Language and Literature Discussion Group
of the Modern Language Association invites papers for the 2004 MLA
Conference (Philadelphia, 27-30 Dec) on the subject of the causal
relationship between computing tools and research and/or pedagogy. More
specifically, we seek papers that explore impacts of computing tools
(e.g., databases, text analysis software, multimedia, etc.) on
theorizing research, teaching, and communication between language and
literature researchers, students, and the wider community. The arenas
of application might include, but are not necessarily limited to,
literary, composition, rhetoric, film, archival, stylistic, or
linguistic studies. We especially hope to encourage the submission of
abstracts that recognize and explore the ways in which the tools shape
the discipline and/or theory.

The Politics of Cultural Memory
A conference to be held at Manchester Metropolitan University
5 - 6 November 2004

The Conference is part of a collaboration between the Centre for the Study
of Location, Memory and Visuality (MIRIAD, Faculty of Art and Design) and
the Cultural Memory and Ethics Research Project (Dept. of English). The
Conference theme is designed to enable productive dialogue across a range of
disciplines including: Art and Design History; Cultural Studies; English;
Documentary and Film Studies; Fine Art; Geography; History; Photography;
Sociology, Visual Culture.

The Conference will focus on the dialogue between history, memory and its
varied forms of representation. It will address the different ways that
cultural texts represent the past in the present and in doing so serve a
range of political and cultural purposes. This conference seeks discussion
on the particularities of cultural memory, both in its theory and practice,
and their political ramifications. With this in mind, the conference invites
discussion on a wide range of different forms, practices and theories of
cultural remembrance but has a strong although not exclusive interest in the
relation between memory, place and visuality. The conference hopes to
encourage a dialogue between
theorists and practitioners of cultural memory.

Potential themes include relationship between memory and:

Archives, Museums, Memorials and Monuments
Landscapes, Mapping and Geography
Colonial / Post-colonial
Art and Photography
Media and Cinema
Architecture, Space and Place
Theories of Trauma
Performances, Rituals and Parades
National Identity
Haunting and Spectrality
Law, Litigation and Justice
Post-Communism / Post-Fascism

The Conference organisers are keen to receive abstracts for
papers/presentations from researchers and practitioners.

Deadline: 16th April 2004.

Abstracts of 400 words (approx) should be sent to:
Dr. Steven Gartside, MIRIAD, Manchester Metropolitan University, Cavendish
North Building, Cavendish Street, Manchester, M15 6BG.
