PSi 16, Performing Publics, will take place in Toronto as part of a collaboration between York University's Faculty of Fine Arts and the Ontario College of Art & Design. The conference will investigate the power of performance to intervene in, reshape, and reinvigorate the public sphere at the beginning of the twenty-first century. We invite proposals that take up notions of "public" in a variety of ways, pointing to the critically generative and fraught aspects of the term as it has been adopted within performance studies.

Greetings fellow scholars,

This is a CFP for the Fall 2009 Humanities Review, a literary journal for the St. John's University English Department in Queens, NY.

Our current theme focuses on the contemporary construction of American Identity.

We are also strongly requesting art submissions that best exemplify the theme. Limited color or mono-chrome are preferred. Please submit .TIFF FILES ONLY @ 800 dpi to the email address below.

Some matters to consider:

How has the social practice of culture formed / continue to form the ideological condition of "being American?" With that said, what does it mean to be an American in the 21st Century? What are the ontological pieces that plait our parsonage?

Northeast MLA: 2010 Convention/ Montreal/ April 7--11

This panel will examine the construction and deconstruction of truth and lie as they shape multiple realities in the texts Blackbird, Lolita, and Doubt. Whose perceptions of reality are privileged when constructions of reality clash? When/how do perceptions of sexual intimacy transform into accusations of abuse? In what ways does the trajectory of age impact formations of reality from memory? Please send 250--500 word abstracts to cathy.fagan@ncc.edu. PDF or Word files please.

Tuesday, September 15, 2009 - 3:05pm
Global

Chapter proposals are invited for an edited book on the themes and films of Claire Denis. As Denis' films are rich in subject matter, story, theme and contemporary concerns, the preference is for a cross-disciplinary perspective, which may include film studies but does not have to concentrate solely on or derive from it.

Articles are peer-reviewed. We are excited by specialty, an excess of detail, fragments, narratives, meta-narratives, and more.
