Call for Papers: Theatre and the Making of Subjects
28-31 October 2010, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany

The problem of how the subject is constituted stands at a central intersection between the examination of theatrical practices from an aesthetic standpoint on the one hand, and from a cultural studies perspective on the other. Within a theatrical framework, playing with different forms of subjectivity—as a process either of fragmentation or consolidation of the autonomous, self-identical subject—points to the precariousness of constituting the subject since it is destabilized by the playful quality of the theatrical event.

Marxist and Psychoanalytic Approaches to the Culture of 9/11

By now it is clear that the attacks of September 11th have provided grist for the culture industry mill, spawning a variety of theoretical, literary, and cinematic production. This panel seeks to analyze these cultural productions from a specifically Marxist and/or psychoanalytic perspective. That is, panelists may do a Marxist or psychoanalytic reading of a particular book, movie, etc., or they may do a Marxist and/or psychoanalytic explanation about the industry of 9/11 culture in general.
