FEMINIST THEORY AND FASHION IN MODERNITY
Edited by Ilya Parkins and Elizabeth M. Sheehan

Essay proposals are sought for a cross-disciplinary collection
foregrounding current feminist scholarship on modern fashion in the
period between 1860 and 1940.

Fashion was frequently held up by late nineteenth- and early twentieth-
century theorists of western modernity (including Baudelaire, Veblen,
Simmel, and Benjamin) as a quintessentially modern form. One hundred
years later, theorists and historians of modernity have returned to the
analysis of fashion, recognizing it as an important indicator of a host
of modern phenomena.

Vincent J. Guihan

Over the twentieth century, a number of key works of cultural theory,
social and biological science have effectively exposed and challenged
domination on the basis of race, gender, class, age, and national
difference, as social and discursive constructs that suit the needs of the
political status quo But what about species differences? For the hundreds
of thoughtful essays, books, collections on race, gender, nationality, age
and other bases for domination, the academy has been reluctant to raise
similar questions about what we presuppose to be the differences, real or
imagined, between human and non-human animals. Although the scientific and

Opera Indigene:
Critical Perspectives on Re/presenting First Nations and Indigenous

September 27, 2008, Kings College London, England
Deadline for Abstract Submissions: June 1, 2008

Introduction

The representation of non-western cultures in opera has long been a focus
of critical inquiry. Within this field, the diverse relationships between
opera and First Nations and indigenous cultures has received far less
attention. ‘Opera Indigene’ will take this subject as its focus, and
examine it in three different aspects:

1. Historical and contemporary representations of colonised peoples at a
distance from Europe;

Robert Gehl

In our digital media saturated lives, where we spend increasing amounts of
time in “virtual worlds” such as Second Life or online on blogs and video
sites, it can be easy to forget about public spaces. Unlike content in
virtual worlds, cultural programs in public spaces are events that are
lived and experienced bodily and sensuously. Museum exhibits, public music
performances, sports, art festivals â€" these events are truly immediate,
which is to say that they are lived bodily by those that participate in and
produce them. The editors are seeking contributions of approximately 5,000
words to a new book, already under contract, which examines the peculiar

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.
