This panel examines how solo performances (on the page, stage, internet, etc.) examine Judith Butler's notion of precarious lives, that is the shared vulnerability, fear and insecurity of contemporary life.

There must be but one detective – that is, but one protagonist –
one deus ex machine.
~ S.S. Van Dine, Rule 9, 'Twenty Rules for Writing Detective Stories', 1928

[These] novels sense the potential to shift the focus away
from the established centre, toward minor characters ...
The more dynamic examples of assymetric characterisation
do not simply represent these minor characters but represent
characters becoming minor within a complex narrative system.
~ Alex Woloch, The One vs. the Many, 2003

CFP 'Corporealities: Body Limits' for a special issue of Word and Text

updated: 
Monday, April 8, 2013 - 11:35am
Word and Text – A Journal of Literary Studies and Linguistics

Treatments of corporeality have piled high in literary and cultural studies, especially in the last twenty years or so, while questions of embodiment continue to proliferate in philosophical discussion. At the same time, metaphorical bodies loom large: humanities scholars have shown renewed critical interest in variously shaped ideas of the body politic, past and present; corpus linguistics works with ever-larger 'corporae' of everyday language. Bodies, 'real' or 'imagined', never lose the potential to unsettle. However, discussions of corporeality tend to be carried, more or less subtly, by the reassuring promise of the material body as a site of indisputable fact.
