The Center for Body, Mind, and Culture at Florida Atlantic University is pleased to announce its second annual Somaesthetics Essay Prize competition. The award for the 2013 prize will be $500. Essays should be academic in style and focus on the interdisciplinary field of somaesthetics from such perspectives as philosophy, aesthetics, art history and theory, literary and cultural studies, dance, design, music, theatre, cognitive science, gender and sexuality studies, sports, movement, and health studies.
This special issue of Comparative Drama, "The Audience as Player: Interactive Theater Over the Years," seeks essays that explore plays and productions in which members of the audience are not just voyeurs in the house but participants, players in the onstage drama. This enhanced "role" for the audience has, surely, philosophical and aesthetic implications, not to mention practical consequence during an actual production.
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to explore the complex webs of interconnection between the long eighteenth century and the 'long' twentieth century, from 1900 to the present. As the field of eighteenth century studies continues to boom within the academy, the eighteenth century – invoked around names like Rousseau, Voltaire, and Adam Smith – is becoming an increasingly frequent interlocutor in contemporary debates in the international media about society, democracy, human rights, and the economy.

In keeping with the theme of this year's conference, we welcome papers that focus on the ways Irish identity, space, and memory are shaped through conventionally understood literary genres (poetry, fiction, drama, memoir) as well as work from related fields, including but not limited to art, critical theory, folklore, and film studies. This panel seeks to address recent trends in scholarship and the ways Irish identity (systemic or individual) and space is constructed and defined.
