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.

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.

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.
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?
Symposium - Creativity and Authorship: Law and Changing Practice
Call for Proposals
17 and 18 December 2012
Inspire Centre, University of Canberra
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?

EARTH PERFECT? Nature, Utopia, and the Garden:
symposium and exhibitions
EVENT INFORMATION AND CALL FOR PAPERS
Since time immemorial, gardens have been key in humanity's quest to define an ideal relation to nature. Gardens have been sources of nourishment for the body and the soul, they have been symbols of wealth and power, they have served as barriers against the wild, and much more. EARTH PERFECT? Nature, Utopia, and the Garden is a four-day symposium designed for an academic audience, garden professionals, and a general public interested in the importance and meaning of gardens.
In his 2012 article "Dramaturgies of Exile", Freddie Rokem writes about Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht's exile in Denmark in the 1930s: together they wrote, dined, discussed theatre and philosophy, and played board games including Go and Chess. Rokem argues that their game-playing echoed their own personal trajectories of travel and exile, as well as embodied game board mappings of their philosophical and artistic theories.
