With Keynote Speaker, ERIC LOTT

Performing the Accidental Archive, the fourth annual York University Theatre and Performance Studies Graduate Student Symposium, invites submissions for papers, installations, performances, manifestos, and workshops. In recent years, much theatre and performance studies work has been devoted to investigating, critiquing, and expanding upon the embodiments, objects, places, and practices that comprise the archive. Performing the Accidental Archive is a call to further these discussions by imaginatively exploring the places, practices, objects, and events that are archival despite themselves and that point towards the unintended and incidental remains of our everyday lives and actions.
The School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Maryland, College Park invites paper proposals for our biennial Graduate Student Colloquium.

We welcome papers from graduate students of the humanities and encourage works that take an interdisciplinary approach and consider intersections of gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, resistance, disability, nation, empire, class, civil rights, labor, and religion, among others.

Hostile Intelligences and The General Antagonism
CALL FOR PAPERS
"Collective intelligence has to organise itself into a hostile intelligence — also in the sense of inoculating the host as a malignant parasite. An alien intelligence is not concerned with any orthodoxy, it proliferates and organises its own heresies".
1. a long journey involving travel by sea or in space.
Synonyms: trip, expedition, excursion, tour
There is no mistaking the physical exploration entailed in this simple definition of a voyage, and yet the word's Latin origin, viaticum, or "provisions for a journey," calls to mind far more than embarkment alone. The origin of the word itself invites us to consider the predicate needs at our own or others' starting point(s): How will we prepare ourselves? What will allow us, inspire us, or force us to leave our present situation in pursuit of something beyond our realm of experience?
