Great academic opportunities: 18 calls for papers, 4 postdocs, 4 jobs, 3 doctoral fellowships, a research grant

After a several-month intermission, I am glad to let you know that the ES/PE community blog is resuming its activity. Your wondering inquiries and kind emails I’ve been receiving reminded me of Jacques Lacan’s argument that anticipation creates a symbolic social link which binds humans together in the anticipatory relationship. This anticipatory relationship between a writer and reader, interpreted Mikhail Bakhtin, is what enables a greater understanding of their intellectual encounter.
Thank you.
Let’s get back to business! More work ahead…
