CFP: "Aspects of Vision," Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick, July 17, 2008.
This conference is dedicated to the exploration of aspects of vision. The aim of this conference is to foster relations among scholars from a variety of different backgrounds and disciplines, whose research incorporates some aspect of vision theory, considered in a broad sense. Without placing strictures on the possible relevance of any specific discipline, it is anticipated that philosophical, psychological, historical and literary approaches will be of import. Preference will be given to submissions which bridge disciplinary boundaries, or are amenable to audiences drawn from various disciplines. Submission Guidelines: We welcome submissions from both faculty and graduate students. The new extended deadline for submissions is May 23rd 2008, though early submissions are encouraged. Please submit an abstract for blind review, of no more than 300 words in Word or RTF format, to the organisers Orla Slattery or Steven Bond , via the following address firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions should be accompanied by a cover sheet containing the proposed paper title, as well as the author’s name, institutional affiliation and status (if any), and email/postal addresses. Successful applications will be acknowledged by May 30th, 2008. Accepted papers should be no more than 3,000 words, with an expected reading time of thirty minutes, allowing ten to fifteen minutes for discussion.
