Saturday, February 2, 2013 - 5:45pm
University of California, Riverside

In the spirit of the (dis)junctions theme of encounters which "stress[es] a sense of unanticipated or oppositional" as it interacts with the traditionally endorsed, this panel seeks to address ways in which these "meetings" of traditional and contemporary artistic expressions of "blackness" have changed since 9/11 as it relates, comments, critiques, and augments on the traditionally endorsed definitions of artistic expression.

Shaw and Adaptation [MLA 2014 in Chicago; JANUARY 9-12, 2014]

Saturday, February 2, 2013 - 5:37pm
Modern Language Association

*Sponsored by the International Shaw Society*

Please send abstracts of 250 words and CVs as well as queries by March 15, 2013 to Lawrence Switzky (

Many audiences first encounter Bernard Shaw's plays through their transformations into other genres and media. Lerner and Loewe's My Fair Lady (1956) is perhaps the most famous adaptation of Shaw's Pygmalion (1912), though the current standard print edition of the play is also an adaptation, a hybrid of Shaw's Academy Award-winning screenplay for the 1938 film and his original and revised stage scripts.

Call for Digital Media Projects, for the Media Festival at (dis)junctions Graduate Conference, Apr 5-6. DEADLINE Feb 20th

Saturday, February 2, 2013 - 5:17pm
Eric Atkinson and Ruben Mendoza de Leon, University of California, Riverside

For the 2013 (dis)junctions Media Festival, we seek to stage a critical, interventional "encounter of visuality" that has the potential to challenge and disrupt what Dr. Nicholas Mirzoeff—this year's (dis)junctions keynote speaker—terms the "hegemonic complexes of visuality," specifically through the visual rhetoric and force of community-based "counter-complex" visual media and performance projects. These are projects of performance and media production work whose staging around community building, mentorship, and interventional, transformational pedagogical practices disrupts institutional, hegemonic visual strategies and rhetorics.

How do writers address social assumptions about who should be performing work, and for what purpose? Proposals of 250-500 words should be submitted via PAMLA's online system (visit by March 31, 2013.

EASA 12 Conference "On the Margins" 4th-7th September 2013

Friday, February 1, 2013 - 4:12pm
European Association for Studies of Australia

"Margin" is clearly not a stable term when talking about Australia, and gives rise to questions such as who is on the margin of whom or what? Is the margin mainly territorial or conceptual? Are those on the margin there by choice or not? How has the definition of the margin changed over the years and how is it likely to change again in the future?
