AmeriQuests is a forum for writing and research about real and metaphorical quests towards “America,” defined as either an absolute but an achievable objective, or as some place in the Americas. A peer-reviewed, multi-and inter-disciplinary e-journal, AmeriQuests was founded by Robert Barsky to contribute in original and creative fashions to the humanities, the social sciences, education, law, medicine, business and social justice. Contributions may focus on questions of dislocation, relocation, displacement, homelessness, American dreams and border crossings of all sorts, from the geographical and the social to the psychological. AmeriQuests also features special issues, student issues, book reviews and discussion sections to add to its immediacy, its allure and its relevance. Submissions are accepted on an on-going basis in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Call for papers: “Shifting Attitudes: Radical Upheaval and its Legacies”, an interdisciplinary conference scheduled for June 19-20, 2014 at the Institute for Advanced Studies, Toulouse, France. "Attitudes" should be taken in the broad sense, to cover everything from generalized optimism and pessimism to questions of “values”. Topics can also cover individual or shared attitudes, including the kinds of things that people discuss, as well as those beliefs that individuals happen to have, and that we can measure in the aggregate. But in each case, the focus will be on Shifting Attitudes because there’s a relative dearth in understanding of how, and under what circumstances, those attitudes can change.
Please email the full-text of the proposed presentation and a short C.V. to both Robert Barsky (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Paul Seabright (email@example.com) by April 15, 2014.
