For this interdisciplinary conference to be held at UBC on February 24, 2011, we invite your explorations of risk in areas including (but not limited to) health, education, youth, sex, disability, and violence.

Attending (to) the Party: Orientations and Simulacra of Public and Private Sites
Everyone's alone — or so it seems to me.
They make noises, and think they are talking to each other;
They make faces, and think they understand each other.
And I'm sure they don't. Is that a delusion?
20 years since the reclamation of the word 'queer' by the LGBTQ community this conference would like to take a closer look at broad themes of queer sexualities through time and space, non-normative sexual constructions and queer sexual identities from a diverse range of perspectives by scholars working in various academic disciplines. Yet our meaning of the word queer is not limited to the non-mainstream sexuality as we opt for inclusion of 'unusual' heterosexual practices into the 'queer domain' in order not to discriminate but understand, include and accept.
Papers, reports, work-in-progress and workshops are invited on issues related to the following themes:
UPSTAGE, a peer-reviewed online publication dedicated to research in turn-of-the-century dramatic literature, theatre, and theatrical culture, seeks submissions for its second issue scheduled for the spring or summer of 2011. This is a development of the pages published under this name as part of THE OSCHOLARS, and will henceforth be an independently edited journal in the oscholars group published at www.oscholars.com, as part of our expanding coverage of the different cultural manifestations of the fin de siècle.

When Ben Jonson wrote that William Shakespeare was "not of an age, but for all time," he could not have realized the full impact of his words. Nearly 400 years after his death, the bard still mesmerizes us. We invite papers on any aspect of Shakespearean studies.
Though the conference theme centers on Shakespeare, we also welcome submissions on any topic related to all genres of literature, theory, culture, and film, as well as creative submissions of poetry, fiction, and drama.
Keynote speakers: José E. Muñoz and Ernesto Quiñonez
