Call for Proposals
Recent attacks on Chican@ and Ethnic Studies programs are reminders of the need for spaces to produce knowledge in, about, and for our communities. This conference provides an environment to encounter and engage recent work by those who situate their teaching, research, writing, creative activities, and advocacy on and beyond an academic campus. This call for proposals centers on the ways in which academic research, creative activities, pedagogy, and activism can directly affect and become embedded in these communities.

Shakespeare and the Myth of the Feminine - June 26-29, 2013 Montpellier France

European Shakespeare Research Association

Yan Brailowsky, Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, France

Call for papers
Iconic Shakespearean actresses such as Peggy Ashcroft (1988) have marvelled at the versatility and depth of Shakespeare's feminine roles. Lady Macbeth, Beatrice, Ophelia, Queen Margaret, Juliet, Paulina, Desdemona, Volumnia, Lavinia… all are characters which have been variously represented, or objectified in Western culture, and whose names have now become easily recognizable emblems or concepts—even myths.

UPDATE:'The Road Not Taken': Explorations in Narrative Refusals, Disnarration, and Counterfactual Histories

Monday, September 10, 2012 - 11:57am
Indian Institute of Technology [IIT] Bombay

Professor Jasbir Jain,
Hon Director, Institute for Research in Interdisciplinary Studies (IRIS), Sahitya Akademi Writer-in-Residence, 2009

Papers are invited for a two-day refereed conference on Disnarration from 1st to 2nd March 2013, at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India.

Gerald Prince's introduction of the 'disnarrated' in 1988 marks an interesting milestone in the evolution of narrative theory. The notion of what could have, but does not happen in a narrative, opens up new ways of looking at texts and at their visibility, overt and implicit.

Filming this Insubstantial Pageant: Medieval and Renaissance Drama on Film (Abstracts due Sept. 30)

Monday, September 10, 2012 - 7:47am
Northeast Modern Language Association (conference Mar. 2013)

This panel seeks papers about film adaptations of medieval and Renaissance English drama, both in English-speaking countries and around the world. The NeMLA conference will be held in Boston in March, 2013. Papers might compare different adaptations of the same play, discuss problems associated with the notion of fidelity to text or of relocating a play in a different historical or cultural milieu, or consider the effectiveness for use in scholarly work or in the classroom. We seek investigation of continuities across disciplines: medieval/Renaissance, cinema studies/literature. What is at stake in these adaptations? What do these directors, writers, performers, and audiences bring to the table?

Call for Proposals
17 and 18 December 2012

Hosted by the Law and Culture research group, Faculty of Business, Government and Law and Faculty of Arts and Design

This Symposium will explore practices of authorship, creativity and cultural innovation, and how they intersect with law. Do law and policy effectively protect and meet the changing needs of authors and other creative practitioners? How does law itself frame authorship and cultural practice? How has this changed over time, and what lessons are there for the future?
