Bodies that Sell: Commodification and Cultural Marketplaces (Submission deadline : 20 Jan 2015)

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

Ashley N. Doonan / University of New Hampshire

Dear Colleagues,

I am seeking fellow panelists to present on at the ALA on trauma--from psychological perspectives to literary trauma theory. The work that I aim to present is focused on vicarious trauma--a trauma transmitted but not experienced directly.

Submissions need not be more than 300-500 words and may be emailed to me directly, titled "ALA Boston Trauma Theory Panel."

I also have an excellent chair for the panel; a professor who has done a great deal of trauma theory in her dissertation.

Please feel free to contact me with further queries.

Performing the Social, Texas Tech Annual Comparative Literature Symposium, April 10-11, 2015

Some would argue that performance has always been social. The origins of Western performance are often charted through rituals, liturgy, mysteries, and morality plays, and Eastern performance through folklore, poetry, music, and dance. The popularity of plays by Kalidasa, Gao Ming, Shakespeare, Moliere, and others, in their times and beyond it, has depended in part on their ability to represent the social in ways that resonate for audiences today.

Dangerous Spaces

"Places are fragmentary and inward-turning histories, pasts that others are not allowed to read, accumulated times that can be unfolded but like stories held in reserve, remaining in an enigmatic state, symbolizations encysted in the pain or pleasure of he body. 'I feel good here': the well-being under-expressed in the language it appears in like a fleeting glimmer is a spatial practice." --Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life

Power, in Case's world, meant corporate power. The zaibatsus, the multinationals that shape the course of human history, had transcended old barriers. Viewed as organisms, they had attained a kind of immortality. You couldn't kill a zaibatsu by assassinating a dozen key executives; there were others waiting to step up the ladder, assume the vacated position, access the vast banks of corporate memory. —William Gibson, Neuromancer (1984)
