The Southern Regional Conference of ACIS will be held at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina, March 4-7, 2010. Ireland's geographical, literary, historic, and artistic symbols and boundaries, like the Celtic knot or the Connemara coastline, are immeasurable and have been described as representations of infinity, hence the theme of the 2010 meeting: "Crafting Infinity: Struggle and Rebirth."

CFP: "Approaches to the Late Medieval City," 10/30/09
The Columbia University Medieval Guild with the support of Columbia Department of English and Comparative Literature is pleased to announce its 20th Annual Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference, "Approaches to the Late Medieval City," taking place on 30 October, 2009.
The conference will feature a keynote address by Professor Sheila Lindenbaum and a methodology panel including Anthony Bale, Elliot Kendall, Alyssa Meyers, Paul Strohm and Marion Turner, moderated by David Wallace.
The practice of theatre in twenty first century envisages radical interventions into the conceptualizations of performing bodies and performance spaces. 'Technology' in a broader and intensely philosophical sense has a pivotal role in organizing performing bodies and defining performance spaces in almost all contemporary theatre forms and traditions. The proposed international theatre conference intends to interrogate the complex interrelationship between performing bodies and performance spaces in theatre in our time. It also attempts to theoretically locate technology within the purview of 'performance' and to interpret the practice of theatre in the context of technologies of self.
Call for Papers:
Intersections: Mind, Body, Time, Space

The 2010 conference of the Humanities Education and Research Association will take place at one of the most dynamic intersections in the world—the border crossing of El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico. Constant traffic across this border port and the lively interchange of people and ideas through its gates has given birth to a regional identity that blends the Mexican and U. S. populations in a unique Southwestern Culture.
