CfP: 5th Global Conference--Diasporas: Exploring Critical Issues, Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Friday 29th June 2012 – Sunday 1st July 2012
Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Papers:
This inter- and multi-disciplinary project seeks to explore the contemporary experience of
Diasporas – communities who conceive of themselves as a national, ethnic, linguistic or other form of cultural and political construction of collective membership living outside of their 'home lands.' Diaspora is a concept which is far from being definitional. Despite problems and limitations in terminology, this notion may be defined with issues attached to it for a more complete understanding. Such a term which may have its roots in Greek, is used customarily to apply to a historical phenomenon that has now passed to a period that usually supposes that Di­asporas are those who are settled forever in a country other from where they were born and thus this term has lost its dimension of irreversibility and of exile.

In order to increase our understanding of Diasporas and their impact on both the receiving
countries and their respective homes left behind, key issues will be addressed related to Diaspora cultural expression and interests. In addition, the conference will address the questions: Do Diasporas continue to exist? Is the global economy, media and policies sending different messages about diaspora to future generations?

Papers, workshops, presentations and pre-formed panels are invited on any of the following themes:

1. Movies and Diasporas
The presence and impact of displaced / globalized populations of audiences, spectators and producers of new mainstream /Hollywood /Bollywood cinema are crucial to the emergence of this post-diasporic cinema, as these narratives from texts to screen constitute a fundamental challenge for the negotiation of complex diasporic issues

2. Motivational Factors for Research into Diaspora Factors are numerous including most prominently, artistic and musical creations, intellectual outputs, and specific religious practices and which have made a significant international impact.

3. Myths and Symbols: how to meet, and get to know each other through the use of creative lenses
Diasporas group, re-group and their group myths and symbols change accordingly. Or Diasporas
remain dominated, their myths and symbols mirror (or rebel) their domination. This manifestation
could take in linguistic, artistic and other creative forms…right down to graffiti to propaganda. The effects of Diaspora through a creative lens, as often this is where the true
effects of migration and cultural adjustment expose themselves in a personal and celebratory
way. These could include:

* Creative Expression as a result of shifting and integrating cultures. Cross cultural and cross
disciplinary practices / cross cultural collaboration / representing the self and the nation / connecting history to the future / third space practice

* Shifting Art Practices and how traditional folk based art forms (art / music / literature /
dance) can accommodate and represent modern diasporic communities in flux

* New Languages that represent broken boundaries such as graffiti / rap / interactive&
web based art forms / global design aesthetics / symbolism / sound& vision / poetry and text /
Esperanto

4. Public, Private and Virtual Spaces of Diaspora The controversial meaning of private/public spaces remain fundamental arenas in the re/construction of gendered identities in an in-between space as a Diaspora context nurtures challenges to traditional socio-cultural behaviors. Virtual
Diasporas – This questions a range of pre conceived notions about physicality, actuality and
place (which in turn open up the discussions around ownership, representation and nation). Virtual diasporas are not limited to the arts of course but the shifts toward new
technologies within art and design production are highlighting such issues through various forms of creativity and the critique that surrounds it.

We anticipate that these and related issues will be of interest to those working/researching in
philosophy, education, ethics, cinematic / literature, politics, sociology, history,
architecture, photography, geography, globalization, international relations, refugee studies, migration studies, urban studies and cultural studies.

5. Novel ways to think about Diaspora due to globalization In the new global world in which
cultures act simultaneously how should we be thinking about Diaspora?

Some pertinent questions in this area that the conference is interested in addressing are: What
are some of the ways to identity and define the subject in changing political boundaries where
cultural interactions are amplified? What are the processes of social formation and reformation of? Diasporas that is unique to a global age? How do an intensified migration age that is coupled with broader and more flexible terrains of social structures can give Diaspora communities a window of opportunity to redefine their social position in both the country of origin and the host country? How does immigration in an age where the media and the internet are highly accessible, bring individuals to deal with multiple levels of traditions and cultures? What new cross- 'ethnoscapes' and cross-'ideoscapes' are emerging in? In what new methods can we capture the web of forces that influences Diasporas at the same time?

Other aspects of Diaspora that we are interested in having discussions about are:

* Economics of diaspora
* Gendered diasporas
* Queer diasporas 'flexible citizenship'
* Contested diasporic identities
* Invisible diasporas
* Emerging and changing patterns – is there an
'American diaspora' in China? In Dubai? Etc.
* Stateless or homeless diasporas – diasporas of no return
* Guest workers as diasporans?
* Diasporas created by shifting state boundaries
* Internal (intranational diasporas) – for example, First Nations or Indigenous/Native migration into urban areas
* Diasporans by adoption or 'diasporans- in-law' (partners of diasporans adopted into diasporic communities, extended diasporas through family relations, etc.)
* Overlapping diasporas, entanglement
* Competing claims or multiple claims on diasporans Inter-diasporan or multi-diasporan realities

The Steering Group particularly welcomes the submission of pre-formed panel proposals. Papers
will also be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 13th January 2012. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 11th May 2012.

CfP: 2012 Annual SOYUZ Symposium "Affections / Afflictions / Afterlives", University of Michigan, Ann Arbor MI March 23-24, 2012

SOYUZ, the Post-Communist Cultural Studies Interest group, invites paper proposals for its 2012 meeting. The symposium has met annually since 1991, and is an intimate forum where scholars (from graduate students to senior faculty) from across the world can exchange ideas.

The 2012 symposium will ponder the sentiments, the failures, and the successes around making do with those ongoing, productive connections that are afforded by infrastructures and procedures conceived during (or in response to) socialism.

How to speak about what lives "after" without abjecting the "remains"? Topical foci might draw upon themes current in the humanities and social sciences: biopolitics and biopowers (for instance, bricolage in ways of dealing with affliction, means of training the body, etc.);
knowledge-making or sentiment-forming (e.g. recombination of religious, ethnic-folk, scientific, poetic ideologies and resources); material and narrative repurposing; modes of redistribution or
(re)portioning of entitlements.

The 2012 symposium will feature a keynote address by Judith Farquhar, Max Palevsky Professor of Anthropology and of Social Sciences and Chair, Department of Anthropology, University of Chicago.

SOYUZ began in 1991 as a regionally focused group responding to the fall of the Soviet and socialist states. Since then, it has broadened to include scholars working in any region touched by socialism, by the oppositions of socialism to capitalism, or by those phenomena formerly
known as "post-socialist. " The 2012 conference organizing committee includes University of Michigan anthropologists working across regions where socialism has figured in important ways: Kelly Askew (Tanzania), Anya Bernstein (Buryatia), Krisztina Fehervary (Hungary), Alaina Lemon
(Russia, Romani diaspora), Erik Meuggler (China), Damani Partridge (Germany).

Presentations may work in any discipline (anthropology, history, sociology, literary criticism and film studies, etc.) and may focus on any aspect of social life (religion, politics, kinship, sexuality, exchange, performance, etc.). At the same time, papers must strive to combine ethnographic evidence with theory.

We hope to make a limited number of travel subsidies available to graduate students as well as to presenters from outside the United States.

The deadline for abstracts is December 15, 2011

Please send abstracts of 250 words by email to: amlemon@umich. edu

Please include your full name, paper title, and academic affiliation, and please write "SOYUZ 2012" in the subject line. Papers will be selected and notifications made by January 15, 2012.

Sponsors: U-M?s Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies; African Studies Center; Center for Chinese Studies; Department of Anthropology; Institute for the Humanities;
International Institute; College of Literature, Science, and the Arts; Office of the Vice President for Research; and Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia.

PhD position in Highly Multiplex Assays using Mode-Locked Whispering Gallery Mode Resonators, University of Manchester, UK

This project is intended to create microscopic lasers to replace coded fluorescent beads in multiplexed bioassays. Current methods of coding are cumbersome and require labelled analytes to permit the analyte concentration to be determined. Our proposed laser method will provide a high degree of multiplexing, while also eliminating the need for labelling of analytes. The method will work either as a homogeneous assay using flow cytometric measurement methods, or as a heterogeneous assay where the microlasers are tethered to a surface. The homogeneous assay methodology would permit a high throughput of measurements, while the heterogeneous method would permit time courses to be measured or binding kinetics to be determined. The lasers will be created using two-photon stereolithography, using one of only three instruments of this type in the UK. This technique permits objects to be written with a resolution of ~ 150 nm.

see http://www.dtpstudentships.ls.manchester.ac.uk/howtoapply/ for details of the application process

Funding Notes:

Applicants must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a first or upper second class UK honours degree, or equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK, in an appropriate area of science or technology.

The studentship provides funding for fees and stipend at the Research Council UK rate and are available to eligible UK and EU nationals (due to funding criteria, EU nationals MUST have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship). EU applicants that have not resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship, are eligible for a ‘fees only’

The aim will be to design and synthesise heparin/HS mimetics for testing in bioassays, along with the development of novel tools for understanding heparin-protein interactions and biology (including on-chip glycan synthesis using mass spectrometric reaction analysis and glycan molecular imaging probes). The student will receive training in advanced glycan analysis (including glycoarrays and mass spectrometry), glycan synthetic chemistry and bioassays.

This inter-disciplinary project will be carried out jointly between Liverpool and CIC biomaGUNE (a Bionanomaterials research institution in San Sebastain, northern Spain). The Spanish supervisors will be Prof Manuel Martin-Lomas and Dr Niels Reichardt. Applications are invited from students from residents of the UK and EU who are strongly motivated for research and discovery and either hold or expect to obtain, a First or Upper Second class Honours or an equivalent degree (eg Masters level) in natural sciences or medicine.

Applications will be reviewed starting from 15 September.

Funding Notes:

Inter-disciplinary 4-year PhD studentships where the successful candidate will spend two years in Spain and two in Liverpool. This studentship is open to candidates from any European country, including Spain and the UK. The scholarship will cover the tuition fee and provide a tax-free salary of £14000 per annum.

University of Houston

http://www.bauer.uh.edu/doctoral/scm/

Ph.D. in Supply Chain Management (SCM)

The Ph.D. program in Supply Chain Management IS NOW accepting applications for the fall 2012.

The Supply Chain Management (SCM) field covers the planning, execution, and control of strategic, tactical, and operational decisions involved in the movement of materials, services, resources, and information among and within organizations. Demand for SCM graduates has grown significantly in recent years and faculty salaries in the area are highly competitive.

Content and Length of Program

For the typical student the program requires a 4-year full-time commitment. During this period the student establishes residency (Section 7.80 of C. T. Bauer College of Business Policies - BCB policies) and employment outside the university is prohibited. Ph.D. students may be qualified to receive support from the university in the form of Assistantships. Students receiving assistantships are expected to serve 20 hours each week during the academic year as research and/or teaching assistants to the SCM faculty. Compensation ranges from $31,870 to $35,710, based on a $2100 per month stipend with annual increases through the third year, also on a fellowship during a student's first two years and teaching compensation thereafter, plus tuition waiver (less student-paid fees).

Research Focus and Placement

The doctoral program in Supply Chain Management at the University of Houston is designed to produce outstanding scholars/teachers who possess a breadth of understanding of the overall field as well as a depth of understanding in selected sub-fields within SCM. The program is designed to provide the necessary skills to enable graduates to have successful academic careers in which they contribute to the growing body of academic and practical SCM knowledge through sound research, and educate and instruct future scholars and business professionals in the SCM field. Past graduates have accepted faculty positions at the University of Southern California, The Ohio State University, George Mason University, Oakland University, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Lehigh University, the University of Glasgow, and the Air Force Institute of Technology.

Performance in coursework.
Performance as a teaching/research assistant.
Performance in research and participation in the DISC related research seminar series
Progress toward completion of degree.

Form of the Evaluation

The evaluation will be conducted by the SCM Ph.D. coordinator with input from SCM faculty. After considering all relevant information including, but not limited to, that provided by the chairperson of that candidate's Advisory Committee or Dissertation Committee and the student's faculty research or teaching mentors, one of four recommendations will be made to the Associate Dean for Academic and Research Programs:

The candidate's progress is satisfactory in all regards, and the candidate should be retained in the program.
The candidate's progress is unsatisfactory in some regards, and the candidate should be carefully counseled and monitored to eliminate these deficiencies.
The candidate's progress is unsatisfactory and gives cause for serious concern, and the candidate should be placed on probation with a specified time for correcting the noted deficiencies.
The candidate's progress does not warrant continuation in the program and the candidate should be dismissed from the program.

Written copies of the evaluation will be transmitted to the candidate, the chairperson of that candidate's Advisory Committee or Dissertation Committee, and the Associate Dean for Academic and Research Programs.

Dismissal from Program

In the event that the recommendation is dismissal from the program, a majority vote by the tenure-track faculty in the SCM area is required. Consistent with Bauer Guidelines, the action of dismissing a candidate from doctoral program is the responsibility of the Associate Dean for Academic and Research Programs.

CfA: Human Rights Advocates Program, Columbia University

Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University Invites Applications for Human Rights Advocates Program

The Human Rights Advocates Program, an initiative of the Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University, is a capacity-building program designed to strengthen the skills,
knowledge, and networks of proven human rights defenders at the grassroots level. The program focuses both on strengthening the skills of the individual advocates and providing the tools for them to build sustainable organizations that advocate for disadvantaged peoples.

The 2012 HRAP will begin in the latter half of August and run until mid-December 2012. Advocates are expected to participate fully in the offerings provided by HRAP, including skills workshops on advocacy planning and strategies, fundraising, press and media, and building sustainable organizations; Columbia University courses on human rights, public health, the environment, development, and labor rights; and meetings and networking opportunities with NGO staff, activists, policy makers, representatives of international institutions, and academics.

The program is designed for lawyers, journalists, doctors, teachers, social workers, community organizers, and other human rights activists working with NGOs on issues, including sexual and gender-based violence, domestic violence, minority rights, LGBT rights, labor rights, migration, health, social exclusion, environmental justice, and corporate social accountability.

Participants are selected on the basis of their previous work experience in human rights, commitment to the human rights field, and demonstrated ability to pursue graduate-level studies. Full-time students or government officials will not be considered.

Advocates must work at the grassroots level. Applicants from high-income countries will not be considered except for those representing marginalized communities. Fluency in English is required. Preference is given to those who have not previously had opportunities to travel and study internationally. Advocates must provide proof of institutional endorsement from their organizations for their participation in the program and must commit to returning to that
organization upon completion of the program. Only one application per organization should be submitted.

ISHR makes every effort to provide full fellowships to cover program costs as well as travel and housing. A reasonable stipend is also provided to cover basic costs.

Visit the ISHR Web site for complete program information, an FAQ, and the application form.
