Please see below our general call for papers for our symposium: The Rest is History: Ireland, Performance and The Historical Imagination.
This symposium seeks to re-negotiate the archive of Irish theatre and performance in order to cast a light on those subterranean dramaturgies that are either characterised as the discontents of historical time or indeed, transmogrified into the historical imagination.
CALL FOR PAPERS
IFTR Translation/Adaptation/Dramaturgy Working Group
Osaka, Japan, 7-12 August 2011
The Translation/Adaptation/Dramaturgy Working Group of the International Federation for Theatre Research invites paper proposals for its 2011 meeting. While papers for the working group need not be limited to the conference's central themes of Tradition, Innovation, and Community, we do have a special interest in papers that consider how ethics inflects translators', adaptors', and dramaturgs' ("transadaptors'") understandings of and work with any of these terms.
Recent Gothic studies have increasingly looked into problems associated with the idea of delimitation, both in terms of material and media. This leads to the two sets of questions implied in this conference's title: Where are the limits of the 'classic' Gothic tradition? Where have these limits been reached or even transgressed? Can one speak about a 'post-Gothic mode'? What, if anything, is capable of replacing the Gothic? The second set of questions is prompted by the commercialisation and commodification of an increasingly romanticised Gothic and its diffusion among different media and modes: Is the Gothic dependent on 'literature'? Are there media-specific 'Gothics'? Which intermedial and intermodal forms are there?
ASLE UK (Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment (UK) www.asle.org.uk ) invites proposals for its Postgraduate Conference to be held from 9 to 10 September 2011 at the Centre for Creative Collaboration (www.creativecollaboration.org.uk, London WC1), on the theme of 'Emergent critical environments': Where next for ecology and the humanities?'

The Crisis of the Confined Body is a graduate student conference that will join five Romance languages (Catalan, French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish), fostering a comparative approach to studies of the body in confinement, isolation and extraction. The conference will offer critical examinations of the body and its contingent relationship to spatial, temporal, cultural and/or linguistic parameters. A theme that lends itself to multiple fields, The Crisis of the Confined Body will promote interdisciplinary collaborations between the humanities, visual arts, and sciences, engaging points of overlap as well as lines of divergence. We encourage presentations that engage a comparative and/or interdisciplinary approach.

genre, a journal published the Associated Students of Comparative World Literature at Cal State University Long Beach, is soliciting papers for its volume on "Visual Culture & Global Practices." We are interested in works that examine literature (across time periods and languages), images, visual objects and mechanisms, and events from diverse cultures, across national boundaries, and within global contexts . Among the questions to be explored are:
** What are the visual codes of cultural works?
** What is the relationship between these works and their conditions of consumption, production and reception?
** How do images function within political, social, and economic forces?
** What is the cultural work that images do?
This multidisciplinary conference seeks papers and panels that explore representation of Maroon culture in history, literature, art, music, political theory, cultural studies, film, linguistics, and theatre. With its theme "The Return," it strives to revisit the roots of Maroon values and practices, considering the ways they have endured, transformed and resonated in the Caribbean, Canada, South America, Europe, the United States and Africa. Offering a unique combination of scholarly panels and cultural events, the third international Maroon conference aims to increase awareness of Maroon contributions to contemporary societies, bringing together descendents of Maroons with scholars interested in Maroon heritage and indigenous cultures.
