Drawing Out Shakespeare, ANZSA Conference, University of Sydney, 17-19 June 2010

Wednesday, January 6, 2010 - 4:57am
Professor Penny Gay / University of Sydney

Call for Papers
Education is a 'drawing out' – of knowledge, experience, of the learner and of the teacher. Situations, narratives and interrogations of teaching and learning occur frequently in Shakespeare's plays and many other texts of the period. The problems of teaching 400-year-old texts, under different societal, technological, cultural, and even geographical constraints, remain challenging today.

Childhood and the Production of National Ideals (ASA, 11/18/10)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 5, 2010 - 11:32am
Cynthia C. Degnan

This panel seeks papers that examine the ways in which children are positioned during national moments of crisis. Building upon recent scholarship that interrogates the placement of the child at the center of political debates in the U.S., we aim to understand how childhood functions as a key site in the production of national ideals. How do children - both in their conceptualization and their actualization - provide the chain that binds the family and the nation? Which children are thought to embody the future and thus must be saved for the sake of the nation, and which children are imagined to pose a perverse and degenerative threat to familial and national futurity?

Moving Type: Consequence in Cultural Production

updated: 
Monday, January 4, 2010 - 12:10pm
Free Exchange Conference English Department, University of Calgary

The Free Exchange Graduate Student Conference at the University of Calgary seeks abstracts for papers for our forthcoming conference on the roles of type in cultural production. We are most interested in work that engages with the topic of this multi-disciplinary conference in original ways, from material print culture to identity politics; from examinations of migration to site-specific textual analysis. Whether questioning existing methods of literary production or engaging with the gender/genre dynamics of cultural production, we embrace vigorous research on the complicated life, mobility, and circulation of text.
