Theatre and the Making of Subjects

Monday, April 12, 2010 - 6:48am
German Theatre Studies Association together with Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz

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.

International Conference: "Shifting Paradigms: How Translation Transforms the Humanities."/Urbana, IL/Deadline: April 15, 2010

Friday, April 2, 2010 - 4:39pm
The Center for Translation Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and The Université Denis-Diderot, Paris, France

October 14-16, 2010

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Levis Faculty Center

This conference will convene scholars and practitioners to present state-of-the-art research on translation and the humanities. In particular, we seek to assess if, and how, academic disciplines comprising the humanities consider translation to be constitutive of their practice.

Translation scholars have called for a paradigm shift in defining the relationship between translation and the humanities. While it is acknowledged that a large share of our common knowledge is conveyed through translation, too little has been said about the way knowledge itself is built and circulated, particularly in the domain of interpretive disciplines.
