Call for Chapters: Global Issues and Ethical Concerns in Human Enhancement Technologies

Facebook Send

Editors

Dr. Steven John Thompson (Johns Hopkins University and University of Maryland University College, USA)

Call for Chapters

Proposals Submission Deadline: January 15, 2013
Full Chapters Due: May 15, 2013
Submission Date: October 30, 2013

Introduction
Society is struggling with issues regarding rapid advancements in Human Enhancement Technologies (HET), especially in terms of definition, effects, participation, regulation, and control. These are global matters that legislators must sufficiently address, as was evidenced partly by debate within the 2008 European Parliament’s Science and Technology Options Assessment (STOA), among other discussions; yet, relevance must not be relegated entirely to scientists, legislators, and lobbyists who may gain power and control at the expense of those parties most affected by these life-changing technologies. Since current and future HET initiatives should be in the best interests of those who will eventually participate, research into critical pragmatic elements of HET must expand beyond government and scientific experimentation for eventual societal adoption to incorporate deeper relevant inquiry from within the humanities.

Objective of the Book
While much of the realm of HET is in a state of growing experimentation, there is benefit to exploring ground that may be covered regarding universal concerns, ethics, objectives, and principles in aspects of HET as viewed through the humanities. This compendium will include contributions of professional researchers and others working with HET issues today and into the future. It will also provide a well-rounded composite of the HET field in emerging technologies.

Target Audience
The target audience of this book will be composed of researchers, graduate students, practitioners, and professionals in academe and the medical industry who should all find value in this publication. The recent surge in academic course offerings associated with the role of the body in the humanities and computer science will benefit, as will some persons engaged in a humanities approach to study of metasystems, new artificial life, and robotics. This book will merge some of the leading allied field voices regarding HET into a singular compelling voice of inquiry on the topic of human enhancement technology. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives concerned with the management of expertise, knowledge, information and organizational development in different types of work communities and environments.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Theory and Definition
• Body and Machine
• Cyborg Creation
• Enhancement and Modification
• Uses in Medicine and Science
Ethics and Philosophy
• Internet Brain Implants and Related Interfaces
• Human Rights and Requisite Modification
• Human Values and Freedom in Experimentation
• Safety Concerns
Policy and Regulation
• Control and Threat
• Corporations, Governments, and Military Axes
• Issues in Science, Technology, and Society
Digitality and Neuronics
• Access, Availability and Privilege
• Technological Production and Purposed Results
• Ubiquity
Levels of Participation
• Current Trends
• Freedom, Requisite Implementation and Universal Adoption
• Future and The Collective Hive

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before January 15, 2013, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concern of the proposed chapter. All authors of accepted proposals will be notified by April 1, 2013 about status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by May 15, 2013. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project. 

Publisher
This book is scheduled to be published in 2014 by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints.

Global Burn-out

 

Global Burn-out

Le burn-out est la maladie du XXIe siècle, comme la mélancolie pour le XIXe, et la paranoïa ou la schizophrénie pour le XXe. Mais qu’est-ce qu’une maladie de civilisation ?

"Dans Global Burn-out, Pascal Chabot répond à cette question en tentant d’éclaircir les raisons qui, aujourd’hui, jettent tant de femmes et d’hommes dans le désespoir professionnel. Le paysage qu’il dessine ainsi est celui d’une post-modernité dévastée par les exigences contradictoires de performance et de motivation, de perfection et d’équilibre, de reconnaissance et de sujétion formulées par un système broyeur, dont le seul souci est l’argent.

Pourtant, si son réquisitoire contre les responsables de la situation contemporaine du travail est impitoyable, l’auteur n’en dessine pas moins un horizon de changement : celui d’un nouveau pacte de civilisation, qui restituerait au travail sa vérité oubliée, en inventant de nouveaux équilibres professionnels".

Global Burn-out de Pascal Chabot chez Puf. 152 pages, 15 euros.

50 Shades and Beyond: New Approaches to Erotic Romance 2/1/2013

full name / name of organization: 

Journal of Popular Romance Studies

contact email: 

managing.editor@jprstudies.org

Since the 1970s, both the content and the institutional practices surrounding erotic romance fiction have been transformed. The remarkable popularity of E. L. James’s Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has brought a number those transformations to light, not just in terms of the novels’ BDSM-inflected sexual content (old news in the romance world) but also in their publishing history, moving from online Twilight fan-fiction to e-book format to paperback bestsellers.

Yet the world of erotic romance fiction extends far beyond Fifty Shades—not just historically and aesthetically, but geographically, racially, and in the range of sexual identities and practices made visible by these texts. The range of critical and scholarly approaches to these texts ought to be equally various, whether looking back to foundational essays like Ann Barr Snitow’s “Mass-Market Romance: Pornography for Women is Different” or drawing on the latest in queer theory and cultural studies.

To that end, the Journal of Popular Romance Studies is looking for essays, interviews, and pedagogical materials on the subject of erotic popular romance fiction, now and in the past. Essays on individual authors and texts are encouraged, along with work on the business side of the genre—its publishers, its marketing, etc.—and explorations of its reception, including fandom, censorship, and the public debates surrounding erotic romance. All theoretical approaches are welcome. Submissions are due by February 1, 2013, and this special issue of JPRS will be published in December, 2013.

Published by the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance (IASPR), the peer-reviewed Journal of Popular Romance Studies is the first academic journal to focus exclusively on representations of romantic love across national and disciplinary boundaries. Our editorial board includes representatives from English, Comparative Literature, Ethnomusicology, History, Religious Studies, African Diaspora Studies, and other fields. JPRS is available without subscription at http://jprstudies.org.

Please submit scholarly papers of no more than 10,000 words to An Goris, Managing Editor managing.editor@jprstudies.org. Longer manuscripts of particular interest will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Submissions should be Microsoft Word documents, with citations in MLA format; please remove all identifying material (i.e., running heads with the author’s name) so that submissions can easily be sent out for anonymous peer review. Suggestions for appropriate peer reviewers are welcome

Workshop on 'Corporeal Capitalism: Body Matters in IPE'

Call for papers

Workshop on ‘Corporeal Capitalism: Body Matters in IPE’
(Wednesday 17 April 2013, University of Birmingham)

‘The body’ has emerged as a central concern across the social sciences and humanities, spawning a substantial and multifaceted literature in a range of disciplines such as sociology, law, cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, criminology, geography and history. Yet in the field of International Political Economy the body remains, on the whole, conspicuous by its absence. Indeed, as Charlotte Hooper remarked more than a decade ago, it is ‘supremely ironic’ that a discipline so concerned with the material needs of physical bodies should have been built around abstractions from, not explorations of, embodied social contexts (2000: 31). Feminist scholarship – albeit by no means exclusively – has been at the forefront of attempts to take issues of embodiment seriously within IPE. In particular, it has highlighted how globalisation and capitalism are not ‘out there’ phenomena that are materially or analytically separable from actually-existing human lives but, quite the contrary, ‘impact directly and often violently on the bodies of actual people’ (Pettman, 2000: 52). This special issue takes up calls by feminist scholars to regard the body as central to – indeed, a critical starting point for – the theory and practice of the international political economy. In short, we believe the study of IPE 'as if bodies mattered' can add new and hugely significant theoretical, methodological and empirical insights to the field.

This workshop will consider both how and why bodies 'matter' in the international political economy and also how bodies might be positioned more centrally within IPE as a discipline. It has three inter-related aims: first, to interrogate how political and economic processes are inscribed, imprinted and circulated on bodies (Penttinen, 2008); second, to examine how bodies represent ‘sites of contestation' with respect to both power and resistance in the international political economy (Harcourt 2009: 22); and, third, to consider what (the erasure and inclusion of) bodies can tell us about the disciplinary terrain of International Political Economy itself.

The organisers are looking for submissions that address these conceptual, methodological, empirical and normative issues from a from a diversity of disciplinary perspectives and which take an original, critical approach to the study of body politics within the context of broader debates surrounding globalisation, capitalism and neo-liberalism.

Possible topics include (but are by no means restricted too):

* Capitalism and feminist theory
* Queering and/or transgendering IPE
* The political economy of reproduction and reproductive technologies
* The political economy of eating, hunger and food
* The political economy of beauty, ageing, dis/ability
* Virtual economies and the body in cyberspace
* Neo-liberalism and embodied subjectivities
* Globalisation and bio-ethics
* The commodification of bodies and body parts
* International sex tourism, migration and human trafficking
*White privilege and the economics of racism
* Grey sexual economies
* Medicalisation and capitalism
* Bio-power and the welfare state
* Neo-liberalism and abortion politics
* Economic crisis and social reproduction

Please send a title, abstract of around 350 words and a brief biography to Nicola Smith (n.j.smith.1@bham.ac.uk) or Donna Lee (d.lee.3@bham.ac.uk) by 21 December 2012. Successful abstract submissions will be notified by January 30, 2013.

We are planning to co-edit a special issue of a leading IPE journal based on this theme – if you are unable to attend the workshop but would still like your paper to be considered for inclusion in the special issue, please contact Nicola or Donna.

Please note: We have some (very limited!) funds to support this workshop, so there will be no fee to attend and we can provide accommodation for all paper-givers plus make a contribution towards your travel expenses of up to £50 (for those travelling from within the UK) and £100 (for those travelling from outside the UK).

Nicola Smith is Senior Lecturer in Political Science at the University of Birmingham whose work is broadly concerned with globalisation discourse and social justice. Key publications include Showcasing globalisation: the political economy of the Irish Republic (Manchester University Press, 2005), Global social justice (Routledge, 2010, co-edited with Heather Widdows), Body/state (Ashgate, 2012, co-edited with Angus Cameron and Jen Dickinson) and special issues of the journals The Round Table, Journal of Global Ethics and Sexualities. Nicola has recently undertaken a Leverhulme funded project on the political economy of male and transgender sex work in the UK and is completing a research monograph on this theme for Palgrave.

Donna Lee is Professor in Political Economy and Diplomacy at the University of Birmingham. She is author of numerous books, articles, and chapters on the political economy of international trade. She is currently series editor (with Paul Sharp) of the Palgrave Series Diplomacy & International Relations, and has been/is currently a member of the editorial board of several journals. She has also edited special issues for a number of journals including The International Journal of Diplomacy & Economy, The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs, and Third World Quarterly

Les sourds dans la société française au XIXe siècle

Les sourds dans la société française au XIXe siècle
Florence Encrevé, titulaire d’une thèse d’histoire, est interprète formateur en langue des signes. 
  • Editeur : Créaphis éditions (3 janvier 2013)
  • Collection : SILEX
  • Langue : Français
  • ISBN-10: 2354280475
  • ISBN-13: 978-2354280475
En 1880, à la suite du congrès de Milan – réuni officiellement « pour l'amélioration du sort des sourds-muets» – le gouvernement français décide de proscrire la langue des signes des écoles pour sourds et d'y imposer l'usage du français oral, tant pour la transmission des connaissances que pour les échanges quotidiens des professeurs et des élèves, y compris des élèves entre eux. Aujourd'hui encore, aux yeux des sourds, ce congrès symbolise une véritable « révolution négative », incompréhensible et aux conséquences lourdes puisqu'elles sont encore perceptibles en ce début de Xxie siècle. Comment expliquer une telle décision ? La langue des signes est victime de l'idée de progrès. Entre 1830 et 1860, Ferdinand Berthier et ses « frères » sourds parviennent à faire entendre à la société qu'ils sont en mesure d'accéder à l'égalité civile grâce à l'utilisation de la langue des signes. L'idée de progrès n'a pas encore de grandes implications. En cette période des débuts de la révolution industrielle, tout est encore possible et les sourds peuvent revendiquer l'utilisation de la langue des signes dans tous les domaines. Entre 1860 et 1880, l'idée de progrès conquiert peu à peu presque tous les domaines de la société et au lendemain du Congrès de Milan en 1880, les sourds ne peuvent plus revendiquer l'utilisation de la langue des signes comme c'était le cas après la révolution de 1830. Paradoxe surprenant au premier abord : alors que la société progresse vers davantage d'égalité civile, comment expliquer que les sourds se sentent en situation d'inégalité et demandent à être à nouveau considérés comme ils l'étaient auparavant ? Telle est l'interrogation centrale de ce livre. Un lien avec une lecture du livre en langues des signes sera disponible à partir d’un flash code apposé dans l’ouvrage.

Anatomical illustrations painted directly on human bodies

"Artist Danny Quirk has created anatomical illustrations for scientific publications, but his latest series of illustrations don't appear on the page; they appear on real, breathing human beings. By using people as his canvases, Quirk turns his work from illustration into sculpture, and offers a striking sense of what goes on in our bodies beneath the skin.

Quirk uses Sharpie markers and acrylic latex to create these pieces, and he's hoping to ultimately create a 15-20 image series. You can follow his progress on Facebook and Tumblr, and you can check out some of his two-dimensional anatomical art on Etsy, where he has a fascinatingly morbid series of paintings in which the subjects are vivisecting themselves".
