INTERDISCIPLINARY NINETEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES


SPEAKING NATURE

How did the nineteenth century conceive, construct, and represent the physical world? In what ways did nature as an ideology and/or material reality shape the nineteenth century? How did the nineteenth century understand the relation of human beings to nature?

The 2011 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference invites proposals that investigate any aspect of this topic from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature, History, Science, Art History, Environmental Studies, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Music, Economics, and Theology.

Postcolonial Theatre - Call for Papers and Performances, Feb.4-6, 2011: University of Toronto

Graduate Drama Centre, University of Toronto, Canada

The 2011 Festival of Original Theatre conference sponsored by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Drama at the University of Toronto will focus its discussion and praxis entirely on the field of Post-Colonial theatre. The 2011 F.O.O.T. festival is designed to reflect the multi-cultural diversity of the city we inhabit, and to encourage an integrative approach between the theoretical and practical. The festival intends to promote and discuss contemporary trends in the emerging field of post-colonial performance studies as it relates to contentious issues ever-present in various cultural/multi-racial communities (such as race, marginality, migration, agency and hegemony).

Theatricality and Performance in Victorian Literature and Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 6:34am
full name / name of organization: 
The Victorian Network

The fourth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Dr. Beth Palmer (University of Surrey), will explore the various ways in which the Victorians related to concepts of performance and theatricality. The theatre held a central place in the Victorian imagination. Nineteenth-century investments in theatrical culture, as well as in theatrical modes of marketing and consuming literature, reflect in particularly interesting ways on the diverse performances – of class, gender, racial and national identities etc. – which shaped Victorian everyday life. We are therefore inviting submissions of no more than 7000 words investigating any aspect of this theme. A prize of £50, which we reserve the right to withhold, will be awarded for the best paper submitted.

The Global and the Intimate - SCMS panel proposal, March 2011, New Orleans

Sunday, August 1, 2010 - 11:09pm
full name / name of organization: 
SCMS

With a focus on the transnational marginalized subject, this panel seeks to discuss various forms of performances where the subject emerges in its global entanglement. How do we grasp the idea of social, economic and political facets of global relations through the intimate experience of individual bodies-- particularly those of women and labor? How do we grasp "the intimate" (a set of relations, kinship, sexuality, corporeality, internal thought, speech, emotions, affect) through systems connected to global forces and like trade, profit; law, citizenship, and migration; cultural exchange, social movement, tourism?

Postfeminist Postmortems? Gender, Sexualities and Multiple Modernities (Annual Conference of the Department of English, Delhi Un

Feminisms and modernities have had a long and interlocked history. Now that we are, arguably, in a post-feminist, post-modern era, is it a fitting moment to stop and take stock of this critical encounter?
This provocation emerges out of a particular trajectory of debates, controversies and confrontations in gender studies over the past two decades. Judith Butler's Gender Trouble (1990) destabilised understandings of these interlocked categories about two decades after feminism emerged as a serious tool of critical inquiry. In 1990, also, Gayatri Spivak in The Postcolonial Critic re-located critical feminisms outside the Anglophone world.
