“Risking Innovation”

The theme for the 2009 conference is “Risking Innovation.” Historically, religion has been at the
forefront of political revolution, not to mention cultural change. How have theatre and
performance coincided with religiously motivated innovation? What are the religious or spiritual
components of theatrical, artistic, cultural, political, linguistic, or economical innovation, and
what are their performative counterparts?

We are currently inviting papers for an edited collection with the
working title 'Brand America: When the American University Travels
Abroad' which examines the recent expansion of American-style
universities outside the United States. We use the term American-style
to represent American universities with satellite campuses abroad, joint
ventures between American universities and corporate or governmental
partners overseas, and universities which follow an American model and
have, or hope to have, accreditation through a U.S. accrediting body.
The book covers two general areas regarding this phenomenon: theoretical
issues related to the globalization of the university abroad and the role

CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Cool Writings: Theorizing Coolness in Twentieth-Century Literature. NEMLA (09/15/2008, 2/26/2009)

        There have been a number of intersections between American literature and
“cool” subcultures in the latter half of the twentieth century. From the
Beats of the 1950s to the poetry slams of the 1980s and 1990s, literary
scenes have often developed symbiotically with countercultural artistic
communities.
However, the deeper connections between twentieth-century literature and
the coevally developing American (and subsequently global) attitude of
coolness remain largely unexplored.
        Social historian Peter Stearns crucially reconfigures the chronology of
American coolness by tracing its development to the 1910s and 20s.
