Debts to the Moor: Influences, Adaptations, and Citations of Shakepeare's Othello

This panel invites theoretical inquiry and/or performance analyses of appropriations of William Shakespeare's Othello in film, popular culture and/or foreign non-English adaptations. Some questions to consider are: What methodologies are employed when considering the expectations of local audiences producing and consuming the adaptation? What contextual influences inform the reiteration of Othello in a range of performance venues? What literary debts are acknowledged when Othello is cited in popular culture, in widely distributed English films, and/or in foreign performances for non-English speaking audiences?

Polari Journal

Call for Submission Extended AGAIN

Due to unforseen circumstances, the April issue of Polari Journal will now be published in mid August 2012. As a result, the open call for submissions has been extended further (see below).

Polari Journal of queer writing is holding an open call for submissions for its next issue (published August 2012). There is no specific theme for this issue; however Polari tends towards the shorter forms: short stories, poetry, essays, scholarly papers, one act plays/scripts and reviews. In general, the word limit for fiction, plays and essays is 6000 words. Reviews should not be more than 1500 words. For poetry, the maximum is 100 lines.

At this time financial remuneration is not offered.

Zombies: Walking, Eating & Performance
13 April 2013
hosted by the Theatre & Performance Department,
Plymouth University (UK)

The purpose of this one-day symposium is to explore, interrogate and celebrate zombies as a cultural phenomenon through the paradigms of performance, as well as models of performance through the quintessential zombie activities of eating and walking. It will examine the zombie as protagonist, performer, nomad, pilgrim, traveller, tourist, nightmare, underclass and demonstrator. Zombies: Walking, Eating and Performance will consider the derided and resilient figure of the zombie as metaphor and character; the zombie as vehicle for protest and for public self-expression.

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, and pedagogy can directly affect and become embedded in these communities.
