NYU Program in Educational Theatre

For our 2016 annual forum, the Program in Educational Theatre builds on the work of previous annual events in curriculum, assessment, teaching artistry, playwriting, ethnodrama, Shakespeare, citizenship, and site specific theatre by inviting the global community to propose workshops, papers, posters, narratives, and performances around one of the following topics:

•Drama in Education (i.e., studies in drama/theatre curriculum, special education, integrated arts, assessment and evaluation)

•Applied Theatre (i.e., studies in community-based theatre, theatre of the oppressed, the teaching artist, diversity and inclusion)

Society for the Study of Southern Literature Conference Boston, March 10‐12, 2016 The South in the North

updated: 
Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 1:34pm
Society for the Study of Southern Literature

SSSL's meeting in Boston will be the first the organization has held in a location north of the Mason‐Dixon line. Ironically, in many ways this has never mattered less, as Southern literary studies' formative focus on regional difference and distinctiveness has been retrained to take in a broader view of the South's reciprocal material and imaginary relations with the US North, other regions, the nation, and transnational permutations of North/South dynamics.

New Mediums of Modernism: Modernism and Popular Culture- SAMLA- 6/12 Deadline

updated: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 10:48pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association (SAMLA)

Peter Nicholls argues that modernism should not be conceived of as a large single movement but as a multiplicity of smaller undertakings that at once reinforced, contradicted, drove, and inhibited one another. These diverse submovements were united only by their shared inspiration--the emerging technologies, ideas, and events that were rapidly remaking the world in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

[Deadline Extended] Food for Thought: New Critical Perspectives on Veganism and Meat Consumption

updated: 
Monday, June 1, 2015 - 7:23pm
Rasmus Simonsen & Jodey Castricano

Published in the Ecocritical Theory and Practice series by Lexington Books, this edited collection will re-examine the ethics, politics and aesthetics of veganism. In recent years, a burgeoning array of vegan cookbooks—The Joy of Vegan Baking, How it all Vegan!, Sinfully Vegan—have departed from earlier stereotypes of healthy but unappealing vegetarian food to emphasise pleasure and taste as key components of a diet free from animal products. Contemporary popular culture offers up humorous representations of vegans, such as those in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and David Agranoff's The Vegan Revolution…with Zombies.

NCSA Emerging Scholars Award

Monday, June 1, 2015 - 2:25pm
Nineteenth Century Studies Association

The Nineteenth Century Studies Association (NCSA) is pleased to announce the 2016 Emerging Scholars Award. The work of emerging scholars represents the promise and long-term future of interdisciplinary scholarship in 19th-century studies. In recognition of the excellent publications of this constituency of emerging scholars, this award will be given to an outstanding article or essay published within five years of the author's doctorate. Entries can be from any discipline focusing on any aspect of the long 19th century (the French Revolution to World War I); they must be published in English or be accompanied by an English translation, and must be by a single author. Submission of essays that are interdisciplinary is especially encouraged.
