The aim of this conference is to explore the role of live animals on the stage, from the early modern era to the present time. Papers dealing with visual or textual representations of performing animals, typologies of animals in the theatre, the hybridisation of the drama with the circus, the zoo and the cinema, as well as the semiotic transfer of animal roles from the text to the stage are particularly welcome. Corollary topics may also include, but are not limited to:
The rapid changes currently experienced in the different spheres of contemporary life are loosely addressed by the term "globalization."
How do we theorize these changes? And perhaps more importantly, while these changes are often considered a global phenomenon, are they not also shaped by a set of discourses? This calls for a reconsideration of key terms such as "domination" and "hegemony", as well as of the various intellectual/cultural positions associated with them. In particular, we aim to reconsider the cultural sphere as a globalized phenomenon in which cultural products circulate on a worldwide scale, and as a sphere where "global" experiences are articulated.
The Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association has extended the deadline for essay submissions on its 2011 Conference Theme: "Play." Essays treating any aspect of "Play" in language, literature, drama, film, and popular culture are welcome. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: drama and performance studies; satire and parody; linguistic play; game theory; innovative pedagogies; scholarship as play; hoaxes and cons; queerings; subjectivity and identity performance; sport; transgressions and boundary-crossings; mindgames.

Both hell and Heaven in thee meet,
Thou greatest bitter, greatest sweet
No pain is like thy pain, no pleasure too like thine.
