CFP: "Shaw at Home" - G. B. Shaw Conference in UK, June 17-22, 2013. Deadline Feb.15, 2013.

updated: 
Sunday, November 11, 2012 - 1:43pm
Richard Dietrich / International Shaw Society

"Shaw at Home," a conference of international scholars, which will take place mostly in the village of Ayot St. Lawrence north of London, reminds us that "Shaw's Corner" in Ayot was the Shaws' home longer, 44 years, than any other residence. "Shaw's Corner" is now maintained partly as a museum and as the stage for annual productions of Shaw's plays on the back lawn. The Shaws also had several residences in London, of course, and the conference will spend a day in London touring Shavian sites there, starting at the London School of Economics. The Keynote Address will be by Sir Michael Holroyd.

Call for Papers: Performance in/and the Street 26 April 2013

A Graduate Symposium at York University

In recent years, with the popularity of such global movements as Occupy and SlutWalk, the issue of public protest and performance has been at the forefront of debates about how we engage with and in public spaces. This symposium will take up the issue of street performance/performing the streets in light of these recent phenomena. Jan Cohen-Cruz defines street performances as ones which "take place in public by-ways with minimal constraints of access." With this definition of open access in mind, we hope to problematize issues surrounding the relationship between public and private space via examples of both activist and commercial street performances and other public acts of social engagement on the streets.

Remapping Modernist Paris

Friday, November 9, 2012 - 9:34pm
American Comparative Literature Association

Accounts of the emergence of Modernism in early twentieth-century Paris often focus on the contributions of writers and artists from Europe and the United States, even as understandings of their work have been transformed by increased scholarly engagement with transatlantic migrations and by contestation over the significance of "primitivism" in European and North American modernist art and writing.
