14th Global Conference
Perspectives on Evil and Human Wickedness

Sunday 10th March – Tuesday 12th March 2013
Lisbon, Portugal

Call For Presentations:
This inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary conference seeks to examine and explore issues surrounding evil and human wickedness. In wrestling with evil(s) we are confronted with a multi-layered phenomenon which invites people from all disciplines, professions and vocations to come together in dialogue and wrestle with questions that cross the boundaries of the intellectual, the emotional and the personal. Underlying these efforts there is the sense that in grappling with evil we are in fact grappling with questions and issues of our own humanity.

The Influence of Tony Kushner on 21st Century Drama

Southern Atlantic Modern Language Association

Almost twenty years ago Tony Kushner raised the rafters with his epic Angels in America and this gave just cause for playwrights to recognize that Kushner was now the new benchmark and, as Arthur Miller said, attention must be paid. The HBO televised Angels gave many admirers and aspirers an opportunity to see the play more so than even its many nationwide productions. The influence of Kushner and his plays has reached into the context and subtext of a mindset that reconsidered what plays can do as art, and as socio-political activism reflected in both traditional and tradition-defying new drama.

Extending Gesture
A Colloquium at University of Edinburgh 26th – 28th October 2012

'If I write, this strange hand has already
slipped into my writing hand',
(Jean-Luc Nancy).

My hand moves out ahead of me in writing – as Jacques Derrida has conceived it, it is both blind and anticipatory, giving itself over to both in order to touch upon the unknown. Yet in doing so, the unknown touches all along this act; this embodied gesture quivers with unknowability.
