Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR

CHANGING ENGLISH: STUDIES IN CULTURE AND EDUCATION

 

After the success of the NWA hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton, the importance that NWA played in the emerging culture we knew then as hip-hop is crystal clear. Subsequently, it is also clear that this once-emerging culture is now the pulse for popular culture. At the same time, movies like Dope become critical in thinking about the rendering and (re)rendering of hip-hop in this new wave of popular culture. This viewpoint is evident by simply observing the following nexus of events:

Baltimore, Maryland, has been the home of several important African American authors, including Frederick Douglass and Frances E. W. Harper.  In addition to these major writers who influenced the emergence of African American protest literature of the tumultuous nineteenth century, there are several other significant writers of prose and poetry who have lived in the city and created African American literature. Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.

Comparative Media Panel at 2016 PAMLA

PAMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 1, 2016

In keeping with this year’s broad PAMLA conference theme, “Archives, Libraries, Properties,” the Comparative Media panel seeks submissions for 15-20 minute presentations dealing with the interrelationships between various media forms and/as archives, libraries, and properties. The panel welcomes presentations that define the panel’s key terms – archives, libraries, properties, and media – broadly, and use them in productive tension and collaboration with one another. Presentations that seek to creatively disrupt the traditional media forms of conference presentations – thinking the conference itself as a kind of library or archive of performed academic properties – will be particularly welcome.

Maps in Popular Fiction

NeMLA 2017 Baltimore
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Maps bound in at the beginning of books can shape the reading of the book in a variety of ways. Whether they map continents and signal the sweeping world building of a high fantasy, or map an idyllic English village and signal a cozy murder mystery, both the scale and content of a map provides important information for a reader of fiction. This panel will consider the questions of genre raised (and perhaps answered) by prefacing fiction with maps, and also the various issues of intertextuality indicated by the presence of the map. For instance, is the map part of the packaging? Is it paratextual? Bound in as a page, does it reify text by providing the semblance of context?

In today’s global landscape, the category of the “human” has assumed a principal position not simply in terms of its ontological centrality but also in relation to surrounding nonhuman worlds. At stake are questions ranging from the impact of humans on the biosphere (the Anthropocene) to their involvement in the virtual world (Knowledge Commons and Ergodicity) to their experiences of the “inner life” of things (Object-oriented ontology and Affect Theory) to the ethical politics over the Other (the terrorist, the refugee, the queer).
