Identity


'Who are you?' said the Caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, 'I—I hardly know, sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.'
       — from Alice in Wonderland

"Asexual: a person who does not experience sexual attraction." This definition is provided on the homepage of the Asexual Visibility and Education Network (AVEN), a web community of nearly 30,000 members worldwide that is generally considered the mouthpiece of the asexual community. AVEN's political platform calls for the depathologization of asexuality and the recognition of asexuality as a legitimate sexual orientation, with AVEN working toward these goals through an engagement with a variety of media – their website, blogs and discussion boards, guest appearances on television talk shows, documentary film, and participation in public events like Pride parades and public sex workshops.

The Diasporic Body and Its Discontents

The co-conveners of the Diaporic Imagination Research Group invite participants to submit work-in-progress for a working session of the 2010 conference of the American Society for Theatre Research in Seattle, WA, November 18-21, 2010.

Participants are invited to consider how power is embodied in diasporic identities, cultural practices, and performances. Our session emphasizes the spatial and temporal aspects of the "corporeal power" at the conceptual heart of CORD/ASTR 2010. By paying attention to diaspora's "discontents," we will also focus on the material and political effects of diasporic performance and the exercises of corporeal power.
