postmedieval: Congratulations Eileen, Myra, et al!

the inaugural double-issue of "postmedieval: a journal of medieval cultural
studies" will be forthcoming in April 2010 [topic: "When Did We Become
Post/human?" co-edited by Eileen Joy and Craig Dionne], at which point half of
the issue's contents will be available free online, but we also have available
now 4 *preview* essays from the inaugural issue [by Jeffrey Cohen, Karmen
Mackendrick, Scott Maisano, and Julie Singer], and you can view
and/or download
those here:

The times are dire, indeed, for asking our university libraries to
purchase new
journal subscriptions, but are you willing to risk terminal institutional
unhipness by not having "postmedieval" on your campus? The least we can all do
is beg and cajole a little. More detailed information here:

We have also now lined up our featured speakers for BABEL's conference at the
University of Texas at Austin next November [4-6 Nov. 2010], "After the End:
Medieval Studies, the Humanities, and the Post-Catastrophe," and you can see
more information about that here:

Cheers [and more soon], Eileen
