Global Shakespeares,
Presidency University, Kolkata

Recent scholarship has laid much emphasis on how William Shakespeare's plays engaged directly with what is now being described as the "Global Renaissance". From Titus Andronicus to The Tempest, his plays seem deeply interested in staging and exploring racialized others and moments of contact. At the same time, Shakespeare as part of the British literary canon, played a vital role in the colonial machinery; and later became an indispensable part of postcolonial resistance.

Anarchism and the Body Conference June 12-14, 2015 @ Purdue University

This conference seeks to be the first of its kind that is dedicated to questions of anarchism in conjunction with questions about the body conceived of as real, social, perceived, constructed, or institutionalized. The conference committee will consider papers that use anarchism to inform studies related to the body or studies related to the body informing anarchism. We encourage innovative papers that engage with multiple aspects of anarchism intersecting with multiple disciplines and fields. While we encourage innovation, radical thought, diversity, and interdisciplinarity, we ask that individuals explain how their argument or presentation is applicable or significant to the fields with which they engage to ensure a coherent program.
