Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"
11/9/2008)

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.

CFP: [Collections] doodlescope: journal of the international society for doodling praxis and research

doodlescope

journal of the international society for doodling praxis and research

Doodling is the definitive minoritarian art â€" but what does it mean to
doodle? And what does a doodle mean? The OED defines a doodle as a drawing
made absentmindedly. As such it embodies the pure bloodyminded distraction
of the perruque â€" that theft of time made famous by Michel de Certeau. A
doodle is what you do when you’re meant to be paying attention to
something else. When you doodle you’re supposed to be focused, to be
following, but you hand over the reins to the unconscious. You allow the
line to drift, you drift into the line, along it â€" you drift where it
takes you, beyond what’s allowed.

Literature and the Body:
Inside, Outside, and Between the Skin

“Why should our bodies end at the skin, or include at best other beings
encapsulated by skin?” Donna Haraway, A Manifesto for Cyborgs

“And the men stepped out in colours up to their necks, pulling wet hides
out after them so it appeared they had removed the skin from their own
bodies. They had leapt into different colours as if into different
countries.” Michael Ondaatje, In the Skin of a Lion
