9th Annual Université de Montréal English Graduate Conference
March 1 and 2, 2013
OF HUMAN BONDAGE: LITERATURES OF CONSTRAINT
Keynote Speaker: Sherry Simon (Concordia University)
Michel Foucault once remarked that "I believe that the anxiety of our era has to do fundamentally with space, no doubt a great deal more than with time." Indeed, there is a strong sense in which space has become one of the most privileged loci of economic, social, and cultural production in the age of globalization. Though many contemporary thinkers have addressed this postmodern "spatial turn," Fredric Jameson's theoretical discourse is remarkable for its insistence on space as a cultural dominant in the world today.

"Playing at Violence"
The Association for Theatre in Higher Education's 2013 Conference (Orlando, FL; Aug 1-4, 2013)
I am looking for 1-2 more panelists to fill out a possible panel for the
Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference in 2013. The panel, which will be submitted to the Performance Studies Focus Group, will explore the contours of performances that engage in some way with the ideas of violence, play, and performance. How do these three concepts interact? How is violence (or representations of violence) "playful"? How is violence performed? Possible themes
may include (but are certainly not limited to):

Seminar Title: (Re)formulations of Blackness in 21st-century France
Co-Organizers: Mame-Fatou Niang & Jean-Baptiste Meunier
"The BRAIN—is wider than the sky—"
The turn towards the influence of affect and emotions on "rational decision making" as response to the false separation between mind and body – what neuroscientist Antonio Damasio calls "Descartes' Error" – has had wide appeal in recent years in the humanities and other fields. This conference intends to explore recent theoretical frontiers that address the mind-body problem through interdisciplinary perspectives. How can we continue to think about mind-body relations, connections, or disruptions in new ways across disciplinary boundaries?
