The Diasporic Body and Its Discontents

The co-conveners of the Diaporic Imagination Research Group invite participants to submit work-in-progress for a working session of the 2010 conference of the American Society for Theatre Research in Seattle, WA, November 18-21, 2010.

Participants are invited to consider how power is embodied in diasporic identities, cultural practices, and performances. Our session emphasizes the spatial and temporal aspects of the "corporeal power" at the conceptual heart of CORD/ASTR 2010. By paying attention to diaspora's "discontents," we will also focus on the material and political effects of diasporic performance and the exercises of corporeal power.

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities - special issue
contact email: 

Post Script: Essays in Film and the Humanities (Texas A & M University-Commerce) welcomes original manuscript submissions for a special issue on cinema distribution and exhibition.

The classic Hollywood studio model had three main strings: production, distribution and exhibition. Less print space has been devoted to scholarship on the latter two, which remain essential to the story of cinema in the United States and the rest of the world. Post Script aims to address this imbalance with a special issue focusing on the business of film distribution and the art of cinema exhibition. Papers, essays, interviews, reviews and other articles on any area of cinema distribution or exhibition are welcome.

For the past twenty years, playwrights such as Suzan-Lori Parks, David Henry Hwang, and Cherrie Moraga have found themselves becoming as common in the dramatic literature curriculum as O'Neill, Williams, and Beckett, and the study of their work both re-affirms and challenges traditional approaches to studying and teaching drama. This panel seeks to address pedagogical approaches to teaching the work of minority playwrights in the classroom. Papers may focus on particular texts by ethnic American theater artists, and/or pedagogical models that grapple with the intersections of ethnic literature and drama as genre.

While we have many accounts of reading and the emerging middle class in eighteenth-century England, our understanding of literacy for domestic servants is less clear. There is evidence that a range of men and women servants read for pleasure and self-improvement. Ironically, as the number of domestic servants who were able to read grew steadily, writers became aware of how the text can affect moral character.
