International Conference "In Search of the Former East in the Former West", Tufts University

Boston, Massachusetts, Tufts University, March 21 - 23, 2013 Deadline: Sep 30, 2012 Northeast Modern Language Association Convention 2013 Call for Papers for the panel on In Search of the Former East in the Former West Chair: Corina L. Apostol, Ph.D student, Art History Department, Rutgers University In the past two decades, artists from Eastern Europe and Russia have been discovered and rediscovered in the West many times over. To this date, there have been over 25 major group exhibitions mounted on the topic of art from these regions before 1989, while many more books, articles, reviews have been published and significant conferences organized. Moreover, artists from these regions have entered in the collections of major museums in the West. From Berlin to Chicago, from Paris to New York, there seems to be a boundless interest on the part of scholars working in the Western cannon of art history to present eastern art production before the fall of the Iron Curtain - and thus come to terms with their former Other. By now, this series of grand, ambitious projects amounts to more than just a way for the West to satisfy the need for covering this so-called "uncharted territory" or the desire for the new in contemporary art. The diversity in strategies on how to approach these regions attests to a lingering anxiety on both sides on how to re-define the former East. These enunciations are important both from a geo-political perspective, manifested through art, and a historical one - which parts of Cold War history still need to be re-considered and re-written? This panel invites a thoughtful dialogue on the re-presentations of Eastern European and Russian art through curatorial and scholarly investigations mounted outside the realities in which it is grounded. According to which criteria, or whose criteria are these (art)histories constructed and to what ends? And what implications do these gestures have for the West to rearticulate itself as the "former West"? Please send inquiries or 250-500 word abstracts (preferably in MS Word or PDF) to Corina L.

Executive master's in European Journalism, IHECS Brussels

Recent economic and political turmoil has shaken the European Union to its foundations € ’¶ and at the same time has demonstrated how the EU has grown in importance, and how its politics affect so many aspects of the daily lives of its citizens. But for many of those citizens, the
EU remains remote. The way it works is often difficult to grasp, and the interactions between its institutions, with their different roles and powers, are not immediately apparent. The complexities are increased by the fact that the EU is evolving all the time.

Journalists have a major role in boosting EU's citizens understanding of what is at stake - despite all the intricacies. They can:

- help citizens understand the EU's integration and decision making processes;
- empower them to exert influence on European affairs
- provide information on what the EU does, and how it affects citizens' lives
- explain complex debates and conflicting opinions

To equip journalists with the tools for these tasks, IHECS, an official Brussels-based high school, runs a pioneering executive Master in European Journalism. This is a one-year full-time daytime course, beginning in September. The course is structured around project learning and multiple partnerships with European bodies. The teaching component runs from September through to April. In April, May and June students complete their end-of-course assignments.

The highlights of the Master are:

- Workshops led by recognised professional journalists from across Europe who combine first-class teaching with practical experience in the field.
- Small class size (maximum 20 students)
- In the heart of Europe, close to the EU institutions
- Contacts with stakeholders
- Numerous media projects
- In- the-field investigations
- Constant contact with professionals

CfP: Panel on The Permanence of the Transient: Precariousnes in Art

Association of Art Historians Annual Conference 2013
Call for Papers for sessions on
The Permanence of the Transient: Precariousness in Art

'Precariousness' is often related to the notion of transience: perishable materials, € ’±dematerialized' conceptual procedures and fragile work conditions. Despite its transitory status, precariousness remains a prominent concept among artists and theoreticians today. In
1967, Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica explicitly made precariousness a poetic guide for the artistic world. He described the artist's condition in Brazil as precarious, writing, "in adversity we strive."

This motto also referred to the use of unconventional materials in Neoconcrete artworks, such as in Oiticica's famous Parangolés, colourful capes made of plastic and cheap fabrics that should be worn and performed by the public. Additionally, it referred to his aesthetic choice to leave the artwork unfinished, inviting the audience to complete it. Precariousness also became the trademark of other movements such as Arte Povera, which used ’poor materials' in an attempt to break down the dichotomy between art and life. However, precariousness in art can be extended beyond these manifestations. It can refer to the artist's adverse work conditions, including living under a totalitarian regime as well as the lack of institutional support and of an established art scene.

For instance, in times of censorship and in places without an institutional structure artists
were propelled to come up with impromptu solutions to produce their artwork, as in Mail Art and in Latin American Conceptualism. Thus, can precariousness result in a fruitful production, with artists being stimulated to think beyond the traditional realm, improvising artistic strategies? But when is precariousness in art an aesthetic choice? When is it a situational condition? Which are the multiple ways that we can understand precariousness today? Which artists/movements explored the idea of precariousness? Which are the ethical issues raised by precariousness as a chosen aesthetics? Welcoming papers exploring different geographic and temporal frames of reference, this panel aims to re-examine the issue of precariousness and its outcomes in art.

Please send proposals for 30-minute papers to both convenors by 12 November 2012:

Camila Maroja, Duke University, camila.maroja@ duke.edu
Caroline Menezes, University of the Arts London, UAL,
carolinemenezes@gmail.com

Three PhD opportunities in translation, speech recognition and synthesis

The SIWIS project is about speech to speech translation. It will allow a person to speak to a machine in their native language and have it automatically recognised, translated and spoken in a different language. One characteristic of recent technology to achieve this is that the spoken synthetic voice can sound like the original speaker instead of a generic speaker or robot.

SIWIS has two broad goals. The first is to customise the current state of the art to the Swiss language scenario. This entails constructing recognition, translation and synthesis modules in the main Swiss languages. The second goal is to advance this state of the art, focussing especially on prosody. Prosody describes aspects of speech such as volume, rhythm and pitch; these are the parts that carry emotion and emphasis, adding extra nuance and personality to the
words.

In order to do this, SIWIS brings together four partners. These partners possess world leading expertise in each of the component parts of a translation system. Further, three of the partners are physically located in cities representing the major language groups of Switzerland; this includes English, represented by the University of Edinburgh. The location will be important not only for data collection (ensuring we have the tools to enable the project), but also for
evaluation, providing native listeners to ensure our results are as good as can be hoped.

Open Positions

Positions are available at the Universities of Geneva and Edinburgh, ETH Zurich, and Idiap Research Institute. For details, please see the project web page at

http://www.idiap.ch/project/siwis

The start dates are expected to be November 2012 - January 2013. All positions will remain open until filled.

PhD Scholarship for research in either the Environmental or Maritime History of Southeast Asia

A fully funded three and half year PhD scholarship is available to work under the supervision of
Professor James Warren, who is coordinating one research stream of a 7-year Major Collaborative
Research Initiative (MCRI) anchored at McGill University entitled ‘The Indian Ocean World: The
Making of the First Global Economy in the context of Human–Environment Interaction’.

Applications are invited for candidates with similar or complementary research interests. These
interests can be pursued through study of the impacts of climate related and other natural hazards (cyclonic storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, drought) on the economy, society and history of one or more nations in Southeast Asia from the 10th to 19th centuries.This includes, but is not limited to, projects oriented towards: reconstructing spatial, temporal and social patterns in vulnerability to the adverse effects of climate variability and natural hazards in the Philippines (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and floods), Vietnam (cyclonic storms and floods) and Indonesia (volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunamis). Projects may also aim to improve understanding of the geographic, temporal and social variables that correlate with increased vulnerability or resilience to natural calamities across time.

Projects may also be dedicated to another key research domain of the Major Collaborative Research Initiative, namely maritime trade and the circulation and flow of commodities and peoples in the Indian Ocean World ( stretching from the coast of East Africa to the shores of the South China Sea) between the 10th and 19th centuries.

The successful candidate will be based at Murdoch University’s Asia Research Centre in Perth,
Australia, which has a strong concentration of scholars with specialist research expertise on Southeast Asia. Joint supervision with Professor Warren and a relevant team or Centre colleague is thus possible, depending on the precise project.

Ph.D. scholarship opportunity – urban water and sustainability transitions

An exciting opportunity for 2 new PhD studentships at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia have become available, focused on sustainability transitions in the urban water sector. With a highly competitive scholarship stiped these PhD projects will be working with a team of leading scholars and other research students at the Monash Centre for Water Sensitive Cities with co-supervision from the James Cook University, Townsville, Australia and the DRIFT research team at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. Electronic applications due by 15th August 2012.

The Project: We are seeking two outstanding Phd students who are interested in environmental sustainability and system transitions in the urban water sector. The research will consider the role of people, organisations and institutions in enabling (and constraining) the break-through, diffusion and up-scaling of new and sustainable urban water technologies in the face of competing and conventional practices. The studies will consider the challenges of climate change and population growth in respect of the adoption of new technologies. Issues of water recycling, conservation and improving waterway health are essential for more sustainable water futures, and while much of the sustainable infrastructure technologies have been developed, widespread implementation is still not evident. There is a significant role for the social sciences to contribute new knowledge on how best to facilitate radical transitions in the urban water sector, and environmental resource management more broadly.

This project, funded by the Australian Research Council, focuses on changes in the Australian urban water sector in response to the chronic drought and acute flood conditions over the last ten years, and contrasts the human dimension of recent innovations in decentralised alternative water supply practices with the conventional centralised approach. The students will examine the actions of actors and institutions in relation to the emergence and up-scaling of new environmental water technology trajectories.

The Supervisory Team: The research will be supervised by an experienced and collaborative team comprising:
Professor Rebekah Brown (Monash University, Melbourne),
Professor Christopher Cocklin (James Cook University, Townsville), and
Assoc. Professor Derk Loorbach (Erasmus University, The Netherlands).
