Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society 

Comparative Drama Conference

April 5-7, 2018

Orlando, Florida

 

In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production).  Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.

Freiburger Zeitschrift für GeschlechterStudien
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 31, 2018

Das Schwerpunktheft „Geschlechtliche Vielfalt im Sport“ der Freiburger Zeit-schrift für GeschlechterStudien (25/2019) richtet den Fokus auf Momente des Wandels und der Verschiebung von Geschlechterverhältnissen und Ge-schlechterkonstruktionen. Anschluss bieten Forschungen aus unterschiedli-chen disziplinären Kontexten, die der (Re-)Produktion geschlechtlicher Ord-nung in sozialen Praktiken, medialen Repräsentationen und formalen Struk-turen des Sports nachgehen. Die leitende Frage des Heftes lautet:

Welche Veränderungen der zweigeschlechtlich-hierarchischen Ordnung im Sport lassen sich benennen, und unter welchen sozialen und gesell-schaftlichen Bedingungen sind sie möglich und denkbar?

Devoted to the Body: Devotional Practices and Performances in Feminine Spirituality (Session at IMC Leeds 2018)

Bodily practices played an important role in medieval devotion, some particularly associated with female believers. One need only think of how devout women kissed manuscripts and rosaries, Beguines performed series of prostrations and genuflections, and nuns constructed own meditational processions through their convents. Some mystics are represented as engaging in more extreme bodily performances. For instance, according to her vita, thirteenth-century beguine Elizabeth of Spalbeek imitated Christ’s Passion in public, resulting in stigmata erupting on her body.

The Subject of Women in Proust

 

On first reading, Proust's narrative in A la Recherche du temps perdu suggests that women are merely objects in Marcel's development. Despite extensive descriptions and metaphors, female characters seem to slip away from concrete definition, defying assured characterization. Moreover, most critical discussions of women in Proust compartmentalize female characters either as “Madonnas” (Marcel’s mother and grandmother) or “whores” (Odette, Gilberte, Albertine, Léa, Rachel). But how are women in Proust's fiction more than just objects? Given their centrality to the text, a reexamination of the ways in which Proust writes female characters is overdue.
