The editors of NEW FEILDS OF PLAY: ENACTMENTS IN CRITICISM invite submissions for its inaugural issue, Fall 2013. New Fields of Play will feature original works of criticism in a variety of forms, including sound recording, visual art, video, text, and hybrids thereof, that enact as well as argue their interpretive, analytical, and/or critical claims. The editors are particularly eager to review trans-disciplinary works that engage audiences beyond the institutional academic on topics related to performance, drama, theater, performativity and enactive criticism (including stand-up, new/interactive media, role-playing, visual culture) and that do so in ways that push the boundaries of traditional academic publication.
Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013
Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects. The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.
The organizing committee is proud and excited to invite you to the fourth annual Four Corners Conference on Globalization, with the theme this year being "Culture and Ethnicity". On October 26 and 27, Colorado Mesa University, Grand Junction, Colorado, will convene this fourth regional conference which is designed to permit multiple disciplines to share perspectives on themes involving globalization.

Was it why I sometimes felt as weary of America as if I too had landed in what was now South Carolina in 1526 or in Jamestown in 1619? Was it the tug of all the lost mothers and orphaned children? Or was it that each generation felt anew the yoke of a damaged life and the distress of being a native stranger, an eternal alien?
--Saidiya Hartman, Lose Your Mother
We are not the same. I am an alien.
