deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 5, 2016

Essays are being solicited for a collection of under twenty page pieces (including reference and notes in Chicago style) concerning the aspects and modes by which Hong Kong indigenizes—or appropriates and integrates—the “world” into its local “everyday.” Particular instructive examples of this “making the other local” include, for instance,

 

(a) adopting once-foreign languages as Hong Kong ones (Cantonese, English, and Mandarin, formerly foreign, are official languages, while Tagalog, Bisaya, Bahasa Indonesia, Hindi, Urdu, and Nepalese are among other languages common within distinct Hong Kong communities);

(b) incorporating foreign food into local Cantonese cuisine (pasta, sausages, corn);

Modern critical theory has sensitized us to notions of the body as a cultural/linguistic construct and “a site where regimes of discourse and power inscribe themselves” (Butler). Discourses of the body – in all kinds of narratives – influence moral and ideological positions. The Foucauldian Panopticon has become the metaphor for the processes by which disciplinary ‘technologies’ police both our minds and bodies. Some of these discourses have created systems of meaning that have gained the currency of ‘truth’, whilst other alternative discourses are marginalized and subjugated, yet potentially offer sites where hegemonic practices can be contested, challenged, and resisted.

CFP Special Issue: Climates of Disaster and Performance

What are the conditions in which performance happen or is made, in the wake of or in response to a disaster? But we can be more expansive and ask how performance can be linked to disaster, if performance perchance may be thought in the terms of a disastrous event, how such thinking takes on board the implications of linking these two terms: disaster and performance and what possibilities are opened for a politics and ethics of performance.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, December 5, 2016

The Humanities Graduate Student Association (HuGSA) and the Graduate Program in Humanities at York University are pleased to announce an interdisciplinary conference interrogating the enduring human fascination with death, dying, and the dead— in senses both figurative and literal—encompassing the many cultural moments of the human experience. Despite the prevalence of morbidity and representations of death as a part of everyday experience, the study of death remains overshadowed by research frameworks which are primarily sociological or medical, or which centre on policy and law—the practical concerns of dealing with death and dying as part of all societies.
