'To be inside and outside a position at the same time – to occupy a territory while loitering sceptically on the boundary – is often where the most intensely creative ideas stem from. It is a resourceful place to be, if not always a painless one.' - Terry Eagleton

Connections and Intersections: Interdisciplinarity Within and Among Disciplines

Our global world presents us with complex issues that can be investigated only from multiple perspectives, resulting in the adoption of interdisciplinary approaches in many traditional academic areas and the formation of many new interdisciplinary fields. Arguably, it is hard to accomplish substantial research in any discipline without addressing "interdisciplinarity" and using some interdisciplinary methods.

[UPDATE] Making the Invisible Visible: Mime's Contemporary Legacy: Mime and Movement Theatre Symposium - April 11, 2014

updated: 
Monday, February 10, 2014 - 4:20pm
The Ohio State University - Department of Theatre

As the founding fathers of contemporary mime, Étienne Decroux (1898-1991) and Marcel Marceau (1923-2007) have, through their apprentices, established a performative legacy with global resonances. As a new generation of practitioners emerges, we seek to interrogate, connect, critique, and celebrate the work of mime's late twentieth century North American cohort. We aim to articulate mime's history, to cultivate its legacy, and to imagine how contemporary artists might take mime into future practice, especially as they incorporate the potentials of motion capture and technological mediation.

[UPDATE] SCMLA 2014: Urban Prisons and Rural Rambles in Early American Literature (due 24 Feb.)

Rebeccah Bechtold

"My spirit is weary for rural rambles," Lydia Maria Child writes in Letters from New-York, for "amid these magnificent masses of sparkling marble, hewn in prison, I am all alone." Like many of her contemporaries, Child contrasts the unfeeling cruelties of urban life with the apparent "freedom" of the natural world. Not only do the "streets shut out the sky," but "the busy throng, passing and repassing, fetter freedom, while they offer no sympathy," Child complains.

2014 The 5th International Conference on Translation and Cross-Culture, deadline March 2, 2014

updated: 
Monday, February 10, 2014 - 7:10am
Center for Cross-cultural Studies of National Chengchi University, Taiwan

Ours is an era of translation and cross-culture. Transportation and telecommunication technology have helped shorten the distance and increase contact between person and person, nation and nation. Spatial "movement" through travel, tourism, migration, diaspora, and communication facilitates the "interaction" between "the (individual/collective/national) self" and "the other/other culture." Such "movement" and "interaction" depend much on linguistic and cultural translation to keep on "activation," continuously negotiating, realizing, and vitalizing ideas so as to renew and open up multicultural space.
