The Karl Jaspers Society of North America invites proposals for papers that compare Jaspers and Heidegger with respect to their analyses of Vincent van Gogh. Special priority will be given to proposals pertaining to the “world” of the artist or his work. For instance, papers may address any of the following questions, or questions within the same topical range: How do Jaspers and Heidegger take van Gogh to illustrate what it means to belong to a world? What is the significance of Jaspers focusing more on the artist’s world and Heidegger focusing more on the world of the artwork itself? What might the world of van Gogh’s work tell us about transcendence? How do Jaspers and Heidegger take van Gogh to illustrate the transformative power of art for the world that encompasses us? How might the different perspectives of these philosophers, or the life and work of van Gogh himself, inform the future of art interpretation, especially with respect to world? We also welcome treatments of other philosophers who have written about van Gogh: Bataille, Derrida, etc.
Selected papers will be presented at one of two APA panel meetings: the Central Division meeting (February 26-March 1, 2014) or the Pacific Division meeting (San Diego: April 14-19, 2014). Papers will also be considered for publication in Existenz.
Send a one-page proposal (200 words) to the program chair listed below by May 31, 2013. Earlier submissions are appreciated.

Conference I: Philosophies of Philosophy
June 18 and 19, 2013
This conference marks 20 years of publication of the International Journal of Philosophical Studies (Taylor and Francis). From its very first volume published in 1993, IJPS has taken an inclusive view of philosophy and has aimed to publish articles of high quality from all Western philosophical traditions. Our goal always was to provide a forum for publishing on a broader range of issues and approaches to philosophy than has been the norm in other philosophical journals. It is therefore appropriate to mark 20 years of the publication of the journal, with a glance back to its predecessor Philosophical Studies- Ireland (1951-1992), through a conference that attempts to achieve a better understanding of philosophy as a discipline. The keynote speakers of the conference, many of whom are members of the editorial board of theInternational Journal of Philosophical Studies, include:
Professor Tim Williamson (Oxford)
Professor Paul Horwich (NYU) (Responding to Tim Williamson on Wittgenstein’s Metaphilosophy)
Professor Philip Pettit (Princeton)
Professor Katalin Farkas (University of Budapest)
Professor Jonathan Weinberg (University of Arizona)
Professor Paul Boghossian (NYU) – to be confirmed
Professor Dermot Moran (UCD, Founding Editor of IJPS).
More plenary speakers will be announced soon.
June 20 and 21, 2013
The conference examines the interconnections and mutual influences of Pragmatism, Analytic Philosophy and Phenomenology in the seminal years 1895-1935.
Invited speakers include:
Professor Cheryl Misak (University of Toronto)
Professor Richard Cobb-Stevens (Boston College)
Professor Michael Beaney (University of York)
Professor Sami Pihlstrom (University of Helsinki)
Professor James Levine (Trinity College Dublin)
Professor Colin Koopman (University of Oregon)
Professor Jason M Bell (Mount Allison University)
A limited number of places has been allocated to submitted refereed papers.

Call for Papers: Girls and Girlhood in Adaptations of Shakespeare
Special Issue of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation
The editors of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation, in conjunction with guest editor Deanne Williams, York University, extend a call for papers for B&L 9.2 (Fall 2014) on the topic of Girls and Girlhood in Adaptations of Shakespeare. More information can be found here.

In 2012, the United Nations celebrated the first “Day of the Girl Child,” highlighting the treatment of girls and young women as the key moral issue of our time. As the advancement of girls becomes a global economic, medical, and social priority, literary scholars are turning their attention to cultural representations of and by girls and to historical and philosophical conceptions of girlhood. This special issue of Borrowers and Lenders initiates a scholarly conversation on girls and girlhood in adaptations of Shakespeare, seeking papers that address the process of adapting Shakespeare for girl actors, readers, patrons or audiences; adaptations of Shakespeare’s “girl” characters; and girls’ responses to and appropriations of Shakespeare. We encourage contributions that range from Shakespeare’s contemporaries and Restoration theatre to contemporary authors, playwrights, visual artists and directors, as well those that engage with newer or non-canonical literary genres such as online and Web 2.0 Shakespeares; fanfiction and the graphic novel; autobiography, memoirs and life writing; Shakespeare for children; and international, multicultural and postcolonial adaptations.
Please send inquiries and completed essays as Microsoft Word documents sent as email attachments to Deanne Williams: dmw[at]yorku.ca by October 1, 2013. Essays should make original contributions to the study of Shakespeare and of girlhood. We encourage authors to consult Richard Lanham’s Revising Prose or Joseph Williams’s Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace as they edit their work. Essays will be reviewed by the guest editor and then by the board of Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation before final acceptance. Upon acceptance, we will ask authors to verify all citations and to put their essays into Borrowers and Lenders house style.
Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia journal that welcomes original scholarship engaging with the afterlives of Shakespearean texts and their literary, filmic, multimedia, and critical histories. It encourages contributors to use the online format to its best advantage, in particular, by imagining how to enhance or illustrate their essays with multimedia (screen captures, sound clips, images, and so on). B&L won the CELJ’s “Best New Journal” Award in 2007. B&L is fully indexed in the MLA Bibliography. B&L is currently co-edited by Dr. Christy Desmet (cdesmet[at]uga.edu) and Dr. Sujata Iyengar (iyengar[at]uga.edu ; correspondence should be addressed to email@example.com or to Managing Editor Ms. Maria Chappell (machapp[at]uga.edu).
The University of Chicago’s Literature & Philosophy Workshop has just posted their Spring 2013 Program (a handful of titles still TBA). Should you find yourself in Chicago one of these Thursday afternoons, please consider coming in out of the wind and joining us.
