Difference and Repetition: Academic Labour after RSI
Thursday 25th May 2017, 6-7:30 PM
Academic labour is often considered to be abstract and disembodied in the popular imagination, and its recent transformation by digital technologies might make this seem even more the case. But the advent of the digital also makes all with digits, physically standardising scholarly activity into the same few motions required to interact with a keyboard, mouse or screen. Academic work has a real, and for some, a lasting, corporeal impact.
The Eudora Welty Review publishes scholarly essays, book reviews, and regular features for news and notes, textual analyses, checklists, and new archival materials. The editors of EWR are constantly seeking new information about such Welty news items as adaptations of her works, forthcoming conferences of interest to Welty scholars, and awards given to Welty in acknowledgement of her contributions to American literature. The EWR is an invaluable resource for Welty scholars and lovers of Welty’s work.

September 29 & 30, 2017
Keynote Speakers: Professors Mary Celeste Kearney and Kara Keeling
Submission Deadline: June 15, 2017
For Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
(The deadline for this CFP has been extended to June 30, 2017.)
