Since the 1960s, marking a transition from a Friedian conception of artistic modernism to one turning around John Cage and his New York circle, performance art has forged a strong relationship to moving-image art writ large. Responding to technological developments across imaging, motion-capture, and virtual or augmented reality research, performance artists have created increasingly sophisticated works that defy ready classification.

Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society 

Comparative Drama Conference

Orlando, Florida

 

In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production).  Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.

Horror Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, October 6, 2017

With the current spate of contemporary high-budget properties that have sought to engage and adapt online horror content, increasing attention has been turned to communities of amateur critics, writers, illustrators, and fans that work to create horror in digital space. Their influence has been felt in a variety of media, from the television series Channel Zero and Supernatural, to the film The Tall Man and video games like Slender and SCP: Containment Breach. Fora in Something Awful, “r/nosleep”, and the SCP Foundation represent attempts by massive communities to create negotiated fictions, imagining mythic spaces and enduring, horrific creatures.

Thinking the Global with Literature (journal special issue)

updated: 
Wednesday, August 23, 2017 - 9:44am
New Global Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

For this literary-focussed issue of the New Global Studies journal we invite proposals for essays on any aspect of literature’s engagement with ideas of the global, from the ways in which literature’s conceptual reach may help us to think the possibilities of the planetary, to how the global literary marketplace can act as a barometer for shifting cultural norms.

The central question that this special issue poses is: how does literature help us to conceptualize the global? Secondary to this, the issue asks how literature, literary theory, and literary movements and networks may help us to shape, observe, and define what Bruce Mazlish called the ‘emerging global civil society’.
