Mosaic: a journal for the interdisciplinary study of literature: CALL FOR PAPERS
AN INTERNATIONAL INTERDISCIPLINARY CONFERENCE: A matter of lifedeath. The University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada (October 1-4, 2014).
KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Andrea Carlino, Françoise Dastur, David Palumbo-Liu, H. Peter Steeves, Elisabeth Weber.
With immense pleasure and great anticipation, Mosaic invites writers from across the disciplines(architecture, film, history, medicine, biology, literature, philosophy, religion, sociology, etc.), to engage questions of life and death in ways that avoid reductive gestures and that exceed oppositions between animate and inanimate, human and animal, presence and absence, the humanities and the sciences, the living and the dead. We welcome provocative proposals for presentations that open to further research and discussion on themes that may include, but are not limited to, the following: finitude, heredity, inheritance, evolution, cyborgism, morphology, immunology, ontology, global
warming, biodiversity, artificial life, memory, mourning, spectrality, mutation, transplantation, reproduction, repetition, machine, mechanicity, animality, the unconscious, Thanatos, genetics, code-script, message, biotechnology, bioethics, biopolitics, responsibility, affirmation, promise.
Proposals should include: a title and an abstract of 450-500 words, and on a separate page, the author’s name, brief C.V., institutional affiliation, complete contact information, and email address.
