Performance After Identity: The Neo-Political Subject

A Book Proposal by Matthew Causey and Fintan Walsh

Whence catastrophic pronouncements of the sort: only a homosexual can 'understand' what a homosexual is, only an Arab can understand what an Arab is, and so forth. If, as we believe, only truths (thought) allow man to be distinguished from the human animal that underlies him, it is no exaggeration to say that such minoritarian pronouncements are genuinely barbaric.

Belief and Disbelief in the Space Between, 1914-1945


University of Portland, Portland, Oregon, June 17-19, 2010

The interwar years have often been regarded as a period of secularization, disillusionment, and disenchantment, yet many of the period's cultural productions engage questions of faith, Belief, and spirituality. This interdisciplinary conference invites literary and cultural critics, historians, and scholars of modern religion and philosophy to explore a range of topics relating to the collision of belief and disbelief in the years between 1914 and 1945.

Creating Friction: An Interdisciplinary Creative-Practice Postgraduate Conference 22/04/2010, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

updated: 
Tuesday, January 19, 2010 - 11:04am
full name / name of organization: 
Newcastle University

With the expansion of creative possibilities for study within University settings, it is increasingly imperative that we question the borders between the creative and critical components of postgraduate study. How do the different modes of creative practice intersect with the world of traditional academia? How does a creative practitioner function as a PhD candidate? What methods can be used for assessment? What role does the accompanying critical thesis play in the context of the creative work produced? How does creative practice differ from fieldwork? What frictions are created by interdisciplinary work?

Africa: Cultural Translations

Lancaster University, UK 21-22 May 2010

http://www.transculturalwriting.com/Content/african_studies.html

Call for Papers

Scholars working on Africa-related topics are often faced with social, cultural or linguistic gaps that open up in the translation from one form of cultural representation to another. This conference seeks to explore translation, not only on a linguistic level, but in relation to the spaces and tensions between one cultural form or practice and another, one medium and another, or between reality and representation.
