deadline for submissions:

The editors of How to Teach a Play: 75 Exercises for the College Classroom (Bloomsbury Methuen Publishers) are seeking submissions of teaching exercises on the 75 most popularly-taught plays at the university level.

How to Teach a Play provides a new generation of teachers with the tools to develop their students’ performative imagination.  Grounded in scholarship, each teaching exercise will call attention to the performance elements of a specific play and show how the performative can illuminate the thematic meaning of the script.  The collection will consist of exercises that connect close textual analysis with performance. 

Liberal Education Conference

Department of General Education, Mount Royal University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 22, 2017

Many champions of liberal education defend against the reduction of education to purely instrumental purposes. An undergraduate education, they argue, is an incubator for a democratic ethos and it can, at its best, encourage a critical understanding of one's own beliefs, while taking seriously beliefs that shape the lives of others. In this way, the spine of liberal education is hortatory: a call to action that seeks to preserve what is best and to critically reflect and alter those features of our collective inheritance that fall short of our ideals. Thinking beyond one's self-interest, being an engaged citizen, and cultivating the capacities to integrate and appreciably assess data seem hallmarks of the liberally educated person.

The Nineteenth Annual Conference of the Marxist Reading GroupGenre and the Crisis of NarrativeKeynote Speakers: Peter Hitchcock, Mathias Nilges, Nnedi Okorafor23-25 March 2017University of Florida, Gainesville, FL As a cultural dominant, neoliberalism inhibits our ability to think the future. Following Mathias Nilges, neoliberalism can be understood as a dialectic of fiction and reality, and its temporal crisis can be said to be accompanied by crises of narrative in contemporary cultural forms. As the enabling fictions of neoliberalism increasingly become reality, what narrative forms can help us to once again imagine the future as difference?

On Uses of Black Camp

updated: 
Monday, January 16, 2017 - 2:00pm
De Gruyter / Open Cultural Studies journal
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Andrew Ross, in his now classic text “Uses of Camp,” points to Prince and Michael Jackson and their polysexual identities as emblematic of camp aesthetics yet completely neglects the significance of the race factor in their campiness. In turn, he fails to consider the connection between camp and race. According to Pamela Robertson, one of the very few authors who have explored this fascinating intersection, this is characteristic for discourse on camp in general. Critics tend to compare camp to black culture or to blackface, but they do not explore race as inherent in or significant for camp aesthetics.
