CFP: Prison Communication Activism, Research and Education


Submitted by syntaxfactory on March 2, 2010 - 1:25am


COMMUNICATION SCHOLARSHIP ON PRISONS: CALL FOR CHAPTER PROPOSALS
In 2007, the members of Prison Communication Activism, Research and Education (P-CARE) collectively authored "Fighting the Prison-Industrial Complex: A Call for Communication Scholars to Change the World," (Communication and Critical/Cultural Studies, vol. 4, issue 4, pp 402-420). As we argued in that essay, the prison-industrial complex has become a dire threat to the practices of US democracy-a threat that compels communication and cultural studies scholars to respond with new forms of prison scholarship, pedagogy, and activism. Toward that end, we are delighted to announce this call for chapter proposals for an edited collection of communication scholarship on prisons. We welcome all approaches and methodologies that address in specific ways the role of communication in prison activism, prison education and prison research.

CFP -- Edited volume on Trains, Modernity and Cultural Production (Collection of essays)


Submitted by syntaxfactory on February 26, 2010 - 7:26am


Now i'm just being indulgent. I love trains. But also: there is a literature on trains and visual rhetoric. The "view from the train" became an important determinant of the visual rhetoric of the American frontier,

But, also, indulgent.
