Increasingly Shakespeare studies have included in their ambit performance both on stage and screen, and some of the most interesting recent critical studies have been in this area. We are no longer caught between the virtuality of the playscript and the ephemerality of the performance. Cinematic texts have a life all their own, dealing as they do with the international marketplace of culture and communication. In this seminar, while the paramount focus will be on Shakespeare in Indian cinema, be it successful Hindi films like Gulzar's Angoor or Vishal Bhardwaj's Maqbool and Omkara, attention will be paid to Shakespeare performed in regional language cinema—classics like the Bengali Bhranti Bilash or the Malaylam Kaliyattam.

In this proposed 2012 MLA special session, sponsored by the Age Studies Discussion Group, panelists examine the mutually constitutive relationship between performance and aging. Performances of the self may be altered by, and alter, the physical, mental, and emotional states accompanying age. Changes that emerge through age may require learning a new language of the body, often in the face of cultural and linguistic bias. When considering the performative aspects of age and identity, how applicable are critical concepts of literary aging studies, such as those of Kathleen Woodward, Anne Basting, Neal King, Margaret Gullette, Stephen Katz, Anne Wyatt-Brown, and Margaret Cruikshank?

Death, Desire, Fury, and Delirium: Feminism in the Worlds of Neil Gaiman

Edited by Tara Prescott and Aaron Drucker

Broadly lauded as a landmark writer in comics and fantasy fiction for his depiction of powerful and independent female characters, Neil Gaiman's uses of feminist tropes and ideologies deserves further exploration. This collection, due to be published in early 2012, looks carefully at the broad spectrum of Gaiman's work and how he interacts with "feminism" through his oeuvre.

CFP EXTENSION: Feb. 15th. Attending (to) the Party: Orientations and Simulacra of Public and Private Sites

Friday, February 11, 2011 - 1:21pm
full name / name of organization: 
9th Annual Concordia University Graduate English Colloquium, Montreal

Throughout history, the notion of 'party' has served as a site for exploring prevailing liminalities: from ideological display to decorous intimacies to social multitudes, the party has served as a means of further repressing or extolling self within private and public domains, projecting identity formations of the other, or combating the enigmatic reflections of the public world. The dialectic of inclusion and exclusion—who is invited into a space, a sphere, an identity—has been used as a social tool and political wedge while at once advancing the bounds of restraint within prescribed modes of behaviour.

More than fifty years after the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948), the attainment of universal human rights remains elusive. The persistence of repressive and discriminatory national policies, cultural practices, wars, genocide, ethnic cleansing, terrorism, rape, and other forms of violence threaten the maintenance of human rights.
