CfP Journal: OSI Central Eurasia Project's Occasional Paper Series

Open Society Institute
The Central Eurasia Project's Occasional Paper Series

Call for Papers: Building Open Society in
Central Asia & South Caucasus

The Open Society Institute (OSI), a private operating and grant-making foundation, aims to shape public policy to promote democratic governance, human rights, and economic, legal, and social reform. OSI was created in 1993 by investor and philanthropist George Soros to support his foundations in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. OSI has expanded the activities of the Soros foundations network to other areas of the world where the transition to democracy is of particular concern. Active in more than 70 countries, the Open Society Institute works to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens. Working with local communities, the Open Society Institute supports justice and human rights, freedom of expression and access to public health and education.

The Central Eurasia Project (CEP) is one of OSI's regional initiatives. CEP's mission is to promote social progress and human rights in the South Caucasus and Central Asia. In doing so, CEP coordinates closely with the Soros Foundations in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan. CEP also manages OSI's activities related to those closed society countries in the region without national foundations, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. The programmatic areas of CEP include human rights, labor migration, electricity and hydropower governance, and social and economic policy. The instruments of CEP's work to pursue its mission are research and advocacy, public information, and targeted grants.

Occasional Paper Series

CEP is looking for authors who are interested in contributing to CEP's Occasional Papers. The Occasional Papers is a new series of well written papers that will explore under-researched issues and trends that are important for OSI's efforts to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens in Central Asia and the South Caucasus. As such, they will inform OSI's programmatic approaches in the region, but will also serve to introduce these issues into the discussion of the wider community of policy makers, analysts, academics, practitioners and others who take an interest in that work on Central Asia and the Caucasus.

Long-term challenges to the development of open societies in Central Asia and the Southern Caucasus remain insufficiently discussed in the West. While there are a few outlets for high-policy related discussions or mediums that address academic questions whose practical value is limited, there is a need for a paper series that identifies challenges to open society and its supporters in Central Asia and the Caucasus, discusses potential approaches to achieve solutions, and opens these issues to the informed public for debate. While the Occasional Papers will primarily serve an OSI audience, they will also be distributed widely to the interested NGO, academic, policy-making and professional community except in special cases.

CEP is looking for contributors who are interested in authoring a paper of about 25 - 30 pages. Applications are welcome from individuals from a variety of backgrounds including researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and PhD students from the former Soviet Union, U.S. and Europe. CEP is especially interested in papers that would cover the following topics:

* Freedom of religion in Central Asia and the South Caucasus: Issues and Implications
* Understanding Islamic civil society in Central Asia
* China's role in Central Asia
* CASAREM challenges for Central Asia: Transparency, accountability and domestic energy security
* Public utilities (gas, water, electricity) issues in Central Asia and the South Caucasus
* The War on Terror in Central Asia: Ramifications for Human Rights, Societies and States
* Minority rights in Central Asia and the South Caucasus
* Civil societies role in legal remedies for environmental issues in Central Asia and the South Caucasus
* Implications of information and communication technologies for democratic governance and practice
* Cotton monoculture and agricultural reform in Uzbekistan and Tajikistan

Proposals for papers on other topics related to open society values in Central Asia and the South Caucasus are also welcome.

Interested authors should apply by sending in a complete application package consisting of:

* Expose of the paper no longer than three pages,
* Remuneration requirement,
* CV,
* Writing samples

in English by email to ceppapers@sorosny.org. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be reviewed by an expert committee. Successful proposals should be finalized into full papers within two months; drafts will be peer reviewed before the final drafts are published. A limited amount of travel money is available for selected papers that require field research.

CfP Journal: Special volume on Translation

I have been asked to serve as Guest Editor of a special volume of a well-known and respected Brazilian journal called Cadernos de Tradução [http://www.periodicos.ufsc.br/index.php/traducao], a peer reviewed Journal of Translation Studies published by the Programa de Pós-Graduação em Estudos da Tradução - PPGET [Graduate Program in Translation Studies] at the Federal University of Santa Catarina in Florianopolis, Brazil (where I am spending the current semester teaching on a Fulbright grant).

Published twice a year, the journal was founded in 1996 by professors at the university and accepts submission of articles, reviews (of both of academic publications and published translations), and interviews relating to translation as a practice and Translation Studies as a discipline.

Cadernos has become recognized as a major forum for discussion of the subject - ranking A2 in the Brazilian Journal Rank "Qualis" [http://www.capes.gov.br/avaliacao/qualis] - and aims to promote national and international debate on translation and its significance in cultures and languages in contact.

The theme of the special volume that I have been asked to edit is the "Translation of 19th century Russian Literature (poetry, prose, and drama)."

Of particular interest would be any meaningful cultural connections that could be established between Russian culture and that of Latin America (both Spanish-speaking and Portuguese-speaking countries).

Papers may be written in any language, including Russian. Preferred length of the articles is 5 000 words for papers, 3 000 words for reviews of published translations, and 1000 words for book reviews.

Proposals (with author, title, and brief summary of content) are due no later than December 31, 2010.

Papers must be submitted no later than December 31, 2011.

The volume will be published during the calendar year 2012.

Please send any inquiries to me at mkatz@middlebury.edu

CfP Journal: International Dialogue

ID: INTERNATIONAL DIALOGUE- A MULTIDISCIPLINARY JOURNAL OF WORLD AFFAIRS
Call for Contributions
International Dialogue (ID) is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed academic e-journal aimed at scholars, policy makers, and practitioners who seek an interactive forum for the cross-fertilization of ideas and perspectives about world affairs. It is a space for writings in the humanities and the social sciences, especially those that engage in an interdisciplinary approach that addressees the many challenges posed to intellectual and practical life by the major political, social, and economic forces and institutions that shape the present world. ID examines these forces and institutions as they play out in the international arena, as well as how these facets of modern life have been theorized in the humanities and the social sciences. Yet it does so without catering to any one theory, perspective, or view.

ID aspires to move beyond the descriptive and quantitative by acknowledging the importance of theory, how theory becomes empirically informed, and how theory is connected with the practical. It also acknowledges that the boundary between theory and practice is blurred. Consequently, ID examines world affairs in terms of transformative concepts, including, but not limited to, ethnic and religious identity, empowerment, human rights, globalization, civil society, democratization, multiculturalism, conflict, reconciliation, war, nationalism, power, violence, and international law. However, it does so through articles that provide links between theory, the forces and institutions that shape the world, and key issues of our time. The articles cover a number of disciplines related to world affairs, including philosophy, history, politics, economics, sociology, and religion.

ID is now soliciting contributions for its inaugural issue. Published once a year, the journal endeavors to bring innovation to the discussion of world affairs through a dual-editorial board process that will allow for the publishing of a broader range of material and in multiple languages, including English. The length of research articles should be between 6000 and 10,000 words, with the length of discussion notes, book reviews, review essays, and interviews varying between 2000 and 5000 words depending upon the type of submission. All submissions should be in Microsoft Word-compatible format. For more information about submission instructions and special themes or individual thinkers, please access the Submissions pages at the ID website: http://www.unomaha.edu/idj/. Questions should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief, Rory J. Conces at rconces@mail.unomaha.edu.

Sound: Culture, Theory, Practice, Politics

Cornell University Society for the Humanities Postdoctoral Fellowships

Fellowships are open to scholars of any age and rank, from this country or abroad. The stipend is $45,000 per annum. Fellows spend most of their time in research but are asked to teach one seminar on a related topic.

All applicants must be working on topics related to our annual Focal Theme: Sound: Culture, Theory, Practice, Politics The Society for the Humanities invites scholars to reflect this year upon the theme of "Sound: Culture, Theory, Practice, Politics" as a means of analyzing the resonance of historical and contemporary representations, movements, ideas, and negations of sound.

Representations of sound abound in visual, textual, and aural realms. Storytelling, poetry, music, theater, oral histories, political speeches, and noise find their way in and out of texts, images, and recordings as various kinds of sound travel through different media. From "voicing" to "listening," sound shapes the framework of much critical and philosophical analysis of the body, affect, and social publics. How does sound function in establishing parameters of psycho-cultural imaginaries, social practice, religious ritual, and political regulation across the globe? How do manifestations of sound differ in the global context of capitalism and cosmopolitanism, not to mention the specificities of ethnic difference and cultural diversity?

How are "voice," "hearing," and "listening" defined in various disciplines and in relation to aesthetic properties of the disciplines, such as meter, rhythm, montage, and amplification? What criteria are used for differentiating natural from artificial sounds? Does sound challenge disciplinary distinctions between the visual and the oral/aural/tactile? Can the loud noises of industrial culture be distinguished from the synthetic sounds of electronic music, the stammerings of performance and philosophical manifestos, and the burps and sighs of comics and cinematic sound tracks?

Beyond music's embodiment of sound as artistic form, applicants are welcome to consider the broader sense of sonic environments, the role of silence in private and public space and performance, and the ways in which sound underlies life itself, either naturally (the "pink noise" of earthquakes and ocean currents) or negatively (from environmental pollution to torture and warfare). Possible topics might include the use of sound to mark the passage of time; the correlation of sound to the movement of the body in dance and performance; deafness and disability studies; the sonic promise of cartographic projects of social movements and migrations. Of equal import are the cultural impact of the electronic and digital age and the harmonious collusion of the virtual and the visceral in internet-driven communities. Applicants might also consider sound's importance to visual studies, the cultural and ethnic specificity of acoustic fields and rhythms in the age of sampling and mixing, and the gender import of voice and spoken narrative.

This interdisciplinary invitation is open to study of the broadest cross-cultural range of contexts and media that cross the boundaries of time and space, from East and West, South and North.
