Wayne Gretzky. Celine Dion. Rick Mercer. David Suzuki. Pierre Trudeau.

The list goes on and goes way back. Celebrity culture in Canada, although vastly under-estimated, continues to be a massive cultural and economic force to be reckoned with and such a reckoning is long overdue. This proposed edited collection seeks to uncover how celebrity operates in Canada when Canadian subjects, institutions, media, audiences and/or industries are involved.

Poets and Poiesis in Early Modern Drama

updated: 
Sunday, June 10, 2012 - 12:07am
RSA 2013

We seek papers exploring the use (and misuse!) of the language of making, in plays by Shakespeare, Jonson, and their contemporaries. What are we to make of dramatic representations of poor poets, imperfect actors, and painters that prove inferior to nature? With which other discourses are such metaphors entangled? And how, in particular, might stage representations of art, techne, the craftsman, or the artisan complicate or revise received notions of literary history?

Please submit an abstract (150 words) and brief CV to lkolb@uchicago.edu and mharriso@princeton.edu by June 13, 2012.

Clement Greenberg once famously said, "photography is closer today to literature than it is to the other graphic arts". Yet what makes photography so close to literature? And what about the interactions between literature and other visual arts? Are some combinations indeed more productive than others? And what happens when literature and the visual arts meet?

updated: 
Thursday, June 7, 2012 - 4:51pm
NeMLA /Sponsored by Tufts University /March 21-24, 2013

The negotiation of Latin@ identities within space—cities, universities, homes, exile, —requires an understanding of ethnicities, language(s), religion(s), social class, gender, as well as the psychological spaces where one needs to defend him/herself in the face of a pejorative labels from the dominant group or from a more powerful member of one's own group. How do Latino/a authors represent their worlds through the use of space whereby each character or voice must negotiate his/her identity markers within a specific space to claim "self-recognition"?

Papers that address any aspect of Latino/a identity in narrative, poetry or theatre are welcome for this panel.
