  • Paradigm Shifts: "The Ecological Turn in Literary Studies": Prof. Kate Rigby

    FRIAS Lunch Lecture "Paradigm Shifts in Science", December 3, 2015 Since the early 1990s, a major paradigm shift has been underway in literary studies, which commonly goes by the name of “ecocriticism”. In addition to the new questions it has brought to the field of literary studies, ecocriticism has also significantly reshaped its methodology. Whereas it has been common for literary scholars to draw upon other humanities or social science disciplines to inform their research, ecocritics turn also to the biological sciences, geology, physics, meteorology, science studies, and biosemiotics, repositioning literary history and hermeneutics within a more-than-human frame of reference. In this way, ecocriticism has contributed to the emergence of the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of the “...

The Writers Guild of America, for instance, uses this term exclusively to refer to works registered with its WGA script registration service, so as not to restrict the claims it or its users can make regarding their rights. Since it applies only to literary works and not technological or social constructs such as are covered by patent or trademark law, the term is much narrower in scope than the hotly contested term "intellectual property" sometimes used to refer to all non-physical works in which property rights are recognized. Among other differences, in literary works a very specific concept of attribution is a critical part of the work itself - works tend to become markedly less valued or more valued based upon who originated or created it, which is simply not the case for inventions or brand names. Also, most countries recognize moral rights that are not alienable from the work, that is, a purchaser of rights in the work does not have the right to relabel it as if someone else had written it. While the USA does not recognize moral rights, it does have complex de facto standards such as the WGA screenwriting credit system which are actually more demanding and rigorous in specific industries.

Speaker(s): Professor Francesca Klug Chair: Professor Conor Gearty Recorded on 27 February 2015. The Magna Carta, sealed in 1215, has come to stand for the rule of law, curbs on executive power and the freedom to enjoy basic liberties. When the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations in 1948, it was heralded as 'a Magna Carta for all human kind'. How has the Magna Carta, initially considered a failure, achieved such iconic status? And can how those who proudly commemorate its 800th year simultaneously pledge to repeal the more modern laws which seek to protect our fundamental rights and freedoms? In A Magna Carta for Humanity: homing in on human rights, published by Routledge to coincide with the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in June 2015, Francesca Klug will argue that the reasons given for opposing the UKs Human Rights Act are very similar to the reasons that the Magna Carta has stayed relevant for eight centuries. Features that are lauded as ‘totemic’ when applied to the Magna Carta are condemned as ‘dangerous’ when applied to contemporary human rights laws. Are human rights palatable in a mature democracy only as long as they are contained in an ancient document that no longer has any direct legal impact? Are they useful only as a benchmark by which to judge the rest of the world, especially our enemies or rivals, but dangerous when applied to us? Join us for an enlightening discussion, in which Professors Klug and Gearty map the connections between the Magna Carta and Human Rights Act, explore the ethic behind universal human rights and deconstruct the current debate in the UK on the future of human rights protection. Francesca Klug is Professorial Research Fellow in the Centre for the Study of Human Rights. Conor Gearty (@conorgearty) is Professor of Human Rights Law at LSE and Director of LSE’s Institute of Public Affairs. The Centre for the Study of Human Rights at LSE (@LSEHumanRights) is a trans-disciplinary centre of excellence for international academic research, teaching and critical scholarship on human rights. This event forms part of the LSE Space for Thought Literary Festival 2015, taking place from Monday 23 - Saturday 28 February 2015, with the theme 'Foundations'.

FRIAS Lunch Lecture "Paradigm Shifts in Science", December 3, 2015 Since the early 1990s, a major paradigm shift has been underway in literary studies, which commonly goes by the name of “ecocriticism”. In addition to the new questions it has brought to the field of literary studies, ecocriticism has also significantly reshaped its methodology. Whereas it has been common for literary scholars to draw upon other humanities or social science disciplines to inform their research, ecocritics turn also to the biological sciences, geology, physics, meteorology, science studies, and biosemiotics, repositioning literary history and hermeneutics within a more-than-human frame of reference. In this way, ecocriticism has contributed to the emergence of the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of the “environmental humanities”. Embracing also such game-changing sub-disciplines as ecophilosophy, ecolinguistics, environmental history, multi-species ethnography, and eco-religious studies, the environmental humanities brings fundamental questions of value and meaning, responsibility and rights, care and cruelty, compassion and justice to the major socio-ecological challenges facing the world today.

Deutsches Haus at New York University presents, in collaboration with the Austrian Cultural Forum, Consulate General of Switzerland, Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutsches Haus at Columbia University, German Book Office, Goethe-Institut New York, and Pro Helvetia Festival Neue Literatur 2013: Frühschoppen Literary Brunch Part 1: Introduction and Ulrike Ulrich Sunday, February 24th, 2013 The six German-language authors of Festival Neue Literatur 2013: Tim Krohn, Leif Randt, Silke Scheuermann, Clemens J. Setz, Cornelia Travnicek and Ulrike Ulrich, give a sampling from their work, providing a taste of new writing from Austria, Germany, and Switzerland. This event is moderated by Susan Bernofsky and Claudia Steinberg. Festival Neue Literatur (FNL) is New York's first and only annual German-language literary festival, established in 2009 as a collaborative project of New York's leading German-language cultural institutions: the Austrian Cultural Forum, Consulate General of Switzerland, Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, Deutsches Haus at Columbia University, Deutsches Haus at NYU, German Book Office, Goethe-Institut New York, and Pro Helvetia. Frühschoppen Literary Brunch 2013 is made possible by the generous support of BMW of North America and Air Berlin and also supported by Radeberger. Ulrike Ulrich, born in 1968 in Düsseldorf, lives in Zurich. She studied German Literature and Language, and afterwards worked in Computational Linguistics. In 2010, Luftschacht Verlag published her first novel fern bleiben, which will be followed in spring of 2013 by her second novel Hinter den Augen. She is the editor of a literary Anthology on Human Rights and a member of the Zurich-based group of authors "index" (www.wortundwirkung.ch). Ulrich has received numerous awards and stipends, including the Walter Serner-Prize 2010, a Zurich Literature Prize 2010, and the Lilly-Ronchetti-Prize 2011 for Hinter den Augen. In 2012 she received grants from both Pro Helvetia and the canton of Zurich. Featured novel: fern bleiben Fern bleiben chronicles Lo's travels by train across Europe after her winnings from a TV quiz show allow her to quit her job working with computers. In her early thirties, Lo originally plans simply to travel to Rome, but ends up crisscrossing the continent, stopping only briefly in cities following chance encounters or spontaneous impulses. The book is divided into chapters, each of which takes its title from a train and its city of departure. The journey becomes one of self-discovery that causes her to re-evaluate her life, her relationships, and her own character. The freedom of travel acts as a catalyst, allowing her to end an unfulfilling affair, to consider new career options (writing columns about her travels for a magazine, opening a cafe), to fall in love with a man she meets in Vienna, and to fulfill a need to be useful to others. The book ends inconclusively; although she seems nearly ready to end her travels and return home to Dortmund or to begin a new life in Vienna, at the book's conclusion she has just bought another month-long rail pass and is en-route to Estonia.

What is LITERARY AGENT? What does LITERARY AGENT mean? LITERARY AGENT meaning & explanation. A literary agent (often synonymous with "publishing agent") is an agent who represents writers and their written works to publishers, theatrical producers, film producers and film studios, and assists in the sale and deal negotiation of the same. Literary agents most often represent novelists, screenwriters and non-fiction writers. They are paid a fixed percentage (usually twenty percent on foreign sales and ten to fifteen percent for domestic sales) of the proceeds of sales they negotiate on behalf of their clients. Literary agents exist largely to provide services to authors. These services include connecting the author's work with appropriate publishers, contract negotiation, ensuring payment of royalties, and acting as a mediator if there are problems between the author and the publisher. With the help of Agents especially young authors are able to get known by the public. Agents also assist publishing houses and others in expediting the process of review, publication, and distribution of authors' works. Many well-known, powerful, and lucrative publishing houses (such as the Big Five) are generally less open than smaller publishers to unagented submissions. A knowledgeable agent knows the market, and can be a source of valuable career advice and guidance. Being a publishable author doesn't automatically make someone an expert on modern publishing contracts and practices, especially where television, film, or foreign rights are involved. Many authors prefer to have an agent handle such matters. This prevents the author's working relationship with his or her editor from becoming strained by disputes about royalty statements or late checks. Another frequent function of the agent is often that of counselor, advising an author on various aspects of how to make writing a paying proposition on a timely basis. Literary agents are often very experienced members of the publishing industry who usually transition from years of working in the industry before moving on to being agents. Though self-publishing is becoming much more popular, literary agents still fulfill the role of acting as the gatekeepers to the publishing world. Literary agencies can range in size from a single agent who represents perhaps a dozen authors, to a substantial firm with senior partners, sub-agents, specialists in areas like foreign rights or licensed merchandise tie-ins, and clients numbering in the hundreds. Most agencies, especially the smaller ones, will specialize to some degree, representing authors who (for example) write science fiction, or mainstream thrillers and mysteries, or children's books, or highly topical nonfiction. Very few agents will represent short stories or poetry. Legitimate agents and agencies in the book world are not required to be members of the Association of Authors' Representatives (AAR), but according to Writer's Market listings, many agents in the United States are. To qualify for AAR membership, agents must have sold a minimum number of books and pledge to abide by a Canon of Ethics. Effective professional agents often learn their trade while working for another agent, though some cross over to agenting after working as editors. Legitimate agents do not charge reading or other upfront fees (e.g. retainers), or bill authors for most operating expenses. They also will not place their clients' work with a vanity or subsidy press.

Copyright is a bundle of rights given by the law to creators of literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and producers of cinematograph films and sound recordings, including, inter alia, rights of reproduction, communication to the public, adaptation and translation of the work. Scope of protection in Copyright Act, 1957 The Copyright Act, 1957 protects original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works and cinematograph films and sound recordings from unauthorized uses. Unlike the case with patents, copyright protects the expressions and not the ideas. There is no copyright protection for ideas, procedures, methods of operation or mathematical concepts as such. What is the term for the protection of copyright? The general rule is that copyright lasts for 60 years. In the case of original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works the 60-year period is counted from the year following the death of the author. In the case of cinematograph films, sound recordings, photographs, posthumous publications, anonymous and pseudonymous publications, the 60-year period is counted from the date of publication. Does the law allow any use of a work without permission of the owner of the copyright, and, if so, which are they? Subject to certain conditions, some work, is permitted without specific permission of the copyright owners. In order to protect the interests of users, some exemptions have been prescribed in respect of specific uses of works enjoying copyright. Some of the exemptions are the uses of the work i. for the purpose of research or private study, ii. for criticism or review, iii. for reporting current events, iv. in connection with judicial proceeding and legislature proceedings, v. the reading or recitation in public of any published literary or dramatic work, vi. for the purpose of academic use Does copyright protect names and titles? Copyright does not ordinarily protect titles by themselves or names, short word combinations, slogans, short phrases, methods, plots or factual information. Copyright does not protect ideas or concepts. To get the protection of copyright a work must be original. In order to protect names, titles, logos and trademark you need to register a trademark. What work can be protected? ● Literary ● Dramatic, ● Musical and ● Artistic works ● Anonymous and pseudonymous works ● Posthumous work ● Cinematograph films ● Sound records ● Photographs Procedure for filing copyright Registration: Application for registration is made in a form with the applicable government fee. Waiting period of 30 days: Upon filing an application for copyright with complete details and copies, the author or the rightful owner has to wait for a mandatory period of 30 days for any objection that may be filed in the copyright office against the claim. Examinations: If no objection is filed within the said period, the application is then formally examined and objections by the examiner, if any, are raised or any extra documents are requested for. Response to this examination has to be filed within 30 days. Registration: A copyright registration is issued by the Copyright Office after the objections, if any, are overcome to the satisfaction of the copyright office. __________________________________________________________ Contact us for filing your Copyright application within 3-7 business working days at the most affordable price. We hope to serve you well and get you legally sorted!

This abstract in International Sign is for the 7th International Deaf Academics and Researchers Conference: http://deafacademics2015.com/call-for-abstracts/ This is the English version of the abstract: Deaf Politics and the Right to Life: Literary Expressions of Ethnocide “No one suggests the safest cure. A change of heart,/a tender understanding, a pair of hands signing.” Raymond Luczak’s “How to Cure Deafness” This talk looks at the power of literature in fostering a Deaf bioethics and dismantling harmful schemas about Sign Language Peoples (SLPs). My research methodology derives from cognitive literary studies. I examine how the cognitive processes involved in reading fiction’s imagined dystopic futures, which bring about “The End” of SLPs, affects perspectives on group rights for deaf communities. Schema critic Mark Bracher’s Literature and Social Justice: Protest Novels, Cognitive Politics and Schema Criticism inspires my presentation on Deaf literature and our cognitive processes; the presentation derives from my dissertation, “Transatlantic Deaf Literature and the Human Rights Claims of Sign Language Peoples.” Why study Deaf literature? I argue that the urgent political claims of texts like American writer, Karawynn Long’s short story, “Of Silence and Slow Time” (1995), British novelist, Nick Sturley’s Milan (2003), British filmmaker, Ted Evans’ The End (2011), and British poet, Donna Williams’ “When the Dead are Cured” (2013) speak to the “in-between” area of Deaf literature, Deaf Studies, and Deaf politics. This “betweenness” positions Deaf literature as a bridge between disability studies and ethnic studies. From the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of People with Disability (UNCRPD) to arguments against ethnocide, Deaf politics involves grappling with the group identities of both disability and ethnicity. In examining the “betweenness” of Deaf politics, I find that Long’s “Of Silence and Slow Time” is a paradigmatic text—showing us how the Deaf ethnic contends with audist beliefs about the “undesirability of Deaf lives.” This story presents a future state undergoing scientific ethnocide, the deliberate destruction of an ethnic group. The state’s control over the reproductive lives of Deaf women contributes to cultural genocide and demonstrates the undesirability of “defective” deaf lives. All of the aforementioned authors present bioethical concerns about linguistic genocide, cultural genocide, and/or ethnocide in stories that imagine the end of SLPs. In doing so, they consider the implications of the ideology of ability, defined by Disability Studies scholar, Tobin Siebers, which necessitates the eradicating of deafness in the medical industry’s centuries-long search for a “cure”—a cure that some may say has been achieved by cochlear implants and that others say is ever closer with new genetic engineering laws. The authors above offer an imaginative take to the challenges of Deaf futures, which enables the activation of cognitive processes that can “produce lasting, socially transformative psychological changes in readers” (Bracher ix). Because the authors present the search for a cure as a eugenic campaign in modern form, readers that practice schema criticism have the power to correct faulty cognitions, which, according to Bracher, is key to reducing injustice. It is my hope that, from this talk, SLPs and their allies can learn from the successes and limits of various strategies of resistance as we work to promote a deaf bioethics.

Baptist minister, civil rights activist and radio talkshow host, Al Sharpton has been awarded the UCD James Joyce Award by the UCD Literary and Historical Society at University College Dublin. He received the award at an event in the Fitzgerald Debating Chamber on the University College Dublin campus where he took part in a live conversation and questions and answers session with students. According to MSNBC, Rev. Sharpton, who founded the civil rights organisation National Action Network, has "over 40 years of experience as a community leader, politician, minister and advocate" and "is one of America's most-renowned civil rights leaders". Describing Rev. Sharpton, NPR says "[he] has spent nearly all of his adult life in the spotlight, earning both praise and condemnation". Previous recipients of the UCD James Joyce Award include: Archbishop Desmond Tutu; Nobel laureate Seamus Heaney; and Reverend Jesse Jackson. The award is named after University College Dublin's best-known graduate, the author of Ulysses, James Joyce, who is one of the most influential writers of the early twentieth century.

http://www.intellectualpropertystore.com The important facts you need to know about how to copyright your literary, dramatic, musical and artistic work. So what is a copyright? A copyright gives you exclusive rights to original works of authorship. You can use copyrights to protect poems, novels, books, movies, songs, photographs, art, web sites, computer software, and architecture. Copyright protection does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation, although it may protect the way these things are expressed. Currently, it only costs $35 to file an application for registering your material for copyright protection at the U.S. Copyright Office, if it is done electronically. As a result, if you feel you have something of significant value, it's a no brainier to apply for registered copyright protection. The cost jumps to $65 if you submit an application by mail. When you file your application, you are required to submit two complete copies of the best edition within 3 months after a work is published for use by the Library of Congress. It takes about two months for the Office to process your registration. Regardless of whether you file an application to register for copyright protection or not, if you publish your work in the United States, you are required by law to submit two complete copies of the best edition within 3 months to the Library of Congress after a work is published. Foreign publishers are required to submit one copy. Failure to comply can result in a significant fine. Copyrights can be a very valuable asset, especially if you have a best selling novel, a blockbuster movie, a top forty hit or a popular software program or game. Rights to your Copyright can be sold outright or licensed to a person or a business. If you are contemplating selling or licensing your copyright, IntellectualPropertyStore.com is an excellent website for accomplishing this goal. When you place a listing on this site, you can use narratives, pictures and movies to pitch the commercial marketability of your copyrighted material. This is a very powerful and timesaving way to either sell it outright or license it. http://youtu.be/Opv0gyzHfBs
