The SAE International Digital Library of Technical Papers at UC Berkeley.

In October 2013, five campuses (Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles and Riverside) began participation in a Tier 2 opportunity for access to the SAE International Digital Library of Technical Papers:
SAE, formerly known as the Society of Automotive Engineers, is a U.S. based but internationally active professional association and standards organization that serves the global engineering community with primary emphasis in the transport industries that include automotive, aerospace and commercial vehicles.   
Founded in 1905 by magazine publishers Peter Heldt (The Horseless Age) and Horace Swetland (The Automobile), who covered the expanding automobile manufacturing enterprise in the U.S., membership steadily increased. Today, SAE exceeds 121,000 members, 30% from outside North America, actively engaged in all sectors of STEM education and research in science, technology, engineering and math.   
Content in this resource allows users at these five campuses access to the 43,000+ fulltext technical papers from 1998 to the present in an easily searchable and brows able interface with immediate full text click-throughs. This scholarly literature is reflective of the most recent scientific findings conducted by automotive and aerospace engineers in academic, government and industrial sectors worldwide.  The subject scope of the Digital Library reflects the following topics:
·         Bodies and Structures
·         Chassis
·         Design Engineering & Styling
·         Electrical, Electronics and Avionics
·         Environment
·         Fuels & Energy Sources
·         Human Factors & Avionics
·         Interiors, cabins & Cockpits
·         Maintenance & Aftermarket
·         Management & Product Development
·         Manufacturing
·         Materials
·         Noise, Vibration & Harshness
·         Parts & Components
·         Power & Propulsion
·         Quality, Reliability & Durability
·         Safety
·         Tests & Testing
·         Transportation Systems
·         Vehicles & Performance
SAE releases several trade magazines and continues to host many legacy titles.  Additional content not part of the UC package includes Ground Vehicle Standards, Aerospace Standards, Aerospace Material Specifications, SAE eBooks, SAE Partner Content, and SAE eMagazines. The current journal literature is composed of the best technical papers published each year in nine subject specific volumes. The full-text is included in the Digital Library and is also available via a stand-alone journal package housed on the High Wire Press Platform for Berkeley Patrons.
Due to challenging and unsuccessful negotiations at various campuses in recent years over access, legal and pricing issues, it is with great pleasure that we announce that those concerns are now fully resolved and our engineering and science users can now continue their research in these important fields using the SAE Technical Papers.

Web-comics: Some Links by Liladhar R. Pendse (UC Berkeley)

This exhibit also takes in consideration comics that are born digital. The webcomics represent a unique opportunity for their creators to provide outreach to multiple audiences.

A Century of Movement: Russian Culture and Global Community Since 1917
CFP Deadline: April 7, 2017
October 12-13, 2017
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Keynote Speakers: Katerina Clark and Marina Frolova-Walker
Conference Organizers: Jamie Blake and Grace Kweon, in collaboration with Annegret Fauser 
The cultural products of the last century reflect change, opportunity, and uncertainty, and demonstrate active negotiations between personal identity and social awareness, nationalism and cosmopolitanism, artistic voice and security. This conference, in the centennial year of the Revolution, seeks to explore the transformations set in motion during and after the events of 1917 through an examination of cultural production and practices, located both within and without Russia.

We will explore first and foremost the issue of human migration, particularly the patterns and developments set in motion by the Revolution. In light of today’s desperate discu…

CFP: Accelerated development? Socio-political landslides, cultural ruptures and literary history in Eastern Europe (Ghent University, Ghent, September 29 – October 1, 2017)

CALL FOR PAPERS Accelerated development? Socio-political landslides, cultural ruptures and literary history in Eastern Europe Ghent University September 29 – October 1, 2017
In 1964 the Bulgarian-Belarusian-Russian scholar Georgii Gachev coined the term ‘uskorennoe razvitie’ or ‘accelerated development’ in his 1964 monograph Accelerated Development of Literature: On the Basis of the Bulgarian Literature of the First Half of the 19thCenturyThe term describes what happened to Bulgarian literature during Ottoman rule. Being a ‘young’ and ‘peripheral’ literature, having started to develop only recently at the time, Bulgarian literature ‘had to’ go through the whole evolution of European literature at a high pace in order to catch up with the latter. One of the side effects of this accelerated development was that characteristics of different style periods could even co-occur. Gachev’s thought-provoking idea has never really received a l…
