"Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves": Women in Collaboration

updated: 
Sunday, October 4, 2015 - 12:23pm
ACCUTE 2016 (Calgary, 28-31 May 2016); submission deadline 1 November 2015

This panel surveys and celebrates examples of women in collaboration, also taking into account some of the possible challenges associated with women in partnership. How do women's groups or communities handle differences in sexuality, ability, race, ethnicity, and religion among members? What does it mean to be women in collaboration in the Canadian city recently voted worst for women (Edmonton), or the city voted best (Québec City), or the city ranked exactly in the middle (Hamilton)? How have women's communities been depicted in various media, and how have collaborators presented themselves? Submissions should be in keeping with ACCUTE's broad interest in English studies, and work on any time period is welcome.

Old age and aging in British theatre and drama - An edited collection

updated: 
Friday, October 2, 2015 - 3:36pm
dr Katarzyna Bronk

In contrast to the ongoing childhood studies, humanistic gerontology is still largely an unexplored research area, despite more and more attention being paid to old age by historians, sociologists and literary scholars. The latter have taken up the subject of aging and the elderly, trying to create something like an all-encompassing literary "meta-narrative old age" (Johnson and Thane, eds., Old age from antiquity to post-modernity, 17). Johnson and Thane suggest that this may be a fallacy and that one should rather focus on more contained historical and socio-cultural research areas when studying the processes and meaning of aging. This way, for instance, one can avoid interpretative mistakes attributed to Georges Minois.
