Syl-la-ble: Performing Syntactic Vulnerability

updated: 
Tuesday, October 27, 2009 - 1:25pm

This panel addresses the roles that syntax and performance play in telling the stories of people who live, or live within, bodily transformations. An accident, an operation, a condition, even a diagnosis can alter the definition of the self. What results is a literary genre, the memoirs of people with bodies in pain. Is the vulnerability of language to nonsense (as in the loss of a syllable from a familiar word) analogous to the experience of such a self? How does the loss of an organ, of a function, of a potential, or the compensatory gain of a prosthesis produce writing? How can the ontological condition of "becoming a patient" be seen as an artistic genre or condition?

"The Aural Archive"

ACLA annual convention, New Orleans, April 1-4, 2010

Proposals due: Nov. 13, 2009

This seminar aims to draw out several theoretical and methodological questions lurking behind recent work in media studies, performance studies, musicology, and literary studies: If the aural realm is ephemeral (as is often said), how does it factor into the historical record? When you listen to your archive, what and how do you hear? And how do you theorize the silences and noises in the archival grain?

Land of Promise: Stories of the immigrant in multicultural Canada (February 3-4-5, 2010, proposals due December 15, 2009)

In a multicultural and multilingual context, immigration has been an integral part of the national identity of Canada.
Modern Canada constitutes of a large percentage of Diasporic population who contribute extensively to the making of Modern Canada. In the wake of globalization, the evolution of Canada as a Multicultural State has been receiving much attention from mass media. This again has been a contested terrain since the settlement of a chosen race in a promised land has resulted into the subjugation of the Peoples who have been residing in the geo-political entity which came later to be known as Canada.
