Call for Papers
Technical Communication & Culture
Submission deadline: December 1, 2008

With the immense use of technology and methods for explaining technical
concepts, the election cycle offers fascinating intersections of
technical communication and popular culture. Yet, the election cycle is
only one of the many areas possible for analyzing these intersections.
Consider the recent financial crisis when so many of us have muddled
through economic jargon, trying to understand the complex policies
proposed.

Proposals for papers and panels on the intersection of technical
communication and popular culture are welcome in areas such as the
following:

SUBALTERNITY AND THE POETICS OF DECOLONIZATION

As subordinate and oppressed communities struggle for their human rights
and self-representation around the world, themes of subalternity and
decolonization emerge as powerful sites of resistance against
colonialism, racism, and hegemonic politics of mis/representation.

Shakespeare & the Golden Age

PCA 2009
NATIONAL CONFERENCE
New Orleans Marriott Hotel
Wednesday, April 8, through Saturday, April 11

Proposals are now being accepted for “Shakespeare and the Golden Age.”
Any and all aspects of culture from or about this time period are
encouraged. The emphasis is on the “Early Modern World.” We are
interested not only in the literature and drama but other art forms,
technology and material culture from or about the era. We are also
eager to open the conversation up to interests outside England. We
strongly encourage those with an interest in areas such as Spanish
Theatre and literature before 1700 to make proposals.

Theater Directing: Internationalism and the Crisis of Interpretation

2009 American Comparative Literature Association
Harvard University, 3/26-3/29/09

The rise of the director in early modernism begat a new division of labor in theatrical production:
these recently minted stage executives became known variously as autocrats, diplomats, and jet-
setting cosmopolites. As cultural ambassadors, they imported staging techniques from afar and
shepherded plays from one country to another or between non-adjacent time periods,
translating “foreign” texts by making them locally legible.
