cfp: CfP: Second AMICUS Workshop on Motifs in Cultural and Scientific Narratives @ IC-ININFO 2011, Greece

The 2nd AMICUS Workshop investigates the potential of a motif - as a metaphor for formulaic knowledge structures, and a complex expression of semantic content - applied to narrative discourse in literature, fairy tales, and scientific text. There is a wealth of ongoing research, aimed at creating knowledge schemes to encode higher-order content agglomerates which are semantically interpretable both by humans and machines. Without a doubt, advanced subject access in digital repositories would greatly benefit from the isolation and application of indexing expressions above the term level. [read more...]

cfp: CfP: Rethinking the seasons: new approaches to nature

Cultural Studies is not very good at thinking about the place of nature in today's technologically mediated life as it's mainly concerned with “constructivism” or the production of cultural objects, identities and affects. Nature always comes to foil such things, exceeding them, breaking them down, returning them to the earth. The problem is how to “think” nature in this context. And how does this thinking of nature help us to relate to the sciences, with their particular way of thinking of nature as objectified, managed environment. [read more...]
