Human Terrains: Identity, Geography, Politics
EXTENDED ABSTRACT DUE DATE: January 30th, 2015

April 10th, 11th, 12th, 2015

Keynote speech by Jasbir Puar

Master class by Marlon Ross

Taxonomy and tribe; gender and globe; state, sex, and system. We're categorization machines: it would sound like a weak generalization if it weren't such a persistent impulse. We survey exteriors and interiors. We reform law and language in a quest to codify identity. The more terrain we successfully chart, the wider, deeper, more tortuous we find the human landscape. How manifold are the ways we can map our worlds?

EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY CROSSOVERS: GENDER, GENRE, GEOGRAPHY

Sonia Sahoo and Ramit Samaddar (Centre for Advanced Study in English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India)

Our proposed collection aims to explore the meanings of crossover in the eighteenth century. The concept of crossover grew out of the uneasy reconcilement between the era's belief in the absoluteness of taxonomical categories and its paradoxical insistence on the potential malleability and manipulability of the same. Sweeping changes in the cultural scene challenged the seeming discreteness between conceptual kinds, and unleashed the possibility of transcending boundaries of all sorts.

Girls' Economies: Work & Play Cultures

Edited by Miriam Forman-Brunell
and Diana Anselmo-Sequeira
foreword by Dr. Eileen Boris

We know more about the history of grownups' labor than we do about girls' work, especially in informal domains. We know more about adult women workers than about girlhood employment and work-themed amusements. We know more about girls' consumption practices than about their production patterns. We know more about childhood and play than we do about how play informs girls' work skills, sensibilities, and identities as workers. We know more about businessmen and women than about moneymaking girls.
