Alternatives Within the Mainstream II: Queer Theatre in Britain

Critics are invited to write chapters for a critical study of contemporary
British post-war queer theatre. The focus is on bi, trans, gay, lesbian
identities as represented on the British stage. Keeping in mind that queer
identities are fluid and always in a state of flux, defying definitions and
binary oppositions, articles are invited which examine these identities
as represented in British drama since 1950.

The Bible in the Nineteenth Century: the Word and its Re-Wordings in Bristish Literature and Thought:

 

The Bible has played a significant part in British culture since the Reformation. It has been a major reference not only in the field of religious experience but also, more broadly, in artistic expression and intellectual reflection. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the Evangelical Revival thus placed the Scriptures at the heart of religious practices and certain Romantics reasserted the importance of the Bible in renewing its reading.

Representing Reading in Early Modern England

Proposals are invited for a panel at RSA 2006 in San Francisco (23-25 March)
exploring the representation of reading and readers in Early Modern England.
Although there has been an increasing amount of work dedicated to material
reading practices, little attempt has been made to understand the complex and,
at times, even contradictory ways in which these practices were being
reproduced in the written and visual arts. How did reading signify in Early
Modern England?

By 5 May 2005, please email abstracts (150 words max) to panel organizer, Kevin
Curran (kevin.curran_at_mcgill.ca)

Participants must be RSA members or pay membership at time of submitting.

CFP: Anthology on Sex and Disability (7/1/05; collection)

Call For Abstracts: Anthology on Sex and Disability

 

           Disability and sex come together in multiple ways. In the
popular imagination, however, the terms "sex" and "disability" are, if not
antithetical, then certainly incongruous. To many, the idea of people with
disabilities as sexual or sexy remains largely unthinkable. We are
soliciting proposals for a cultural studies anthology of essays that will
challenge such conceptions, examining, revising, and extending the myriad
ways that disability and sex intersect.
