Electronic Editions of Early Modern Drama, RSA Conference, Venice, April 8-10, 2010 (Deadline: May 15, 2009)

In his 2007 Shakespeare Survey article, John Jowett commented that "the extent to which scholarly electronic editions will transform Shakespeare study remains to be seen," and that "at the end of the twentieth century" the role of the electronic edition "remained, at most, supplementary to the print edition" (4). This panel seeks to assess Jowett's claim in light of a growing number of projects to produce electronic editions of early modern drama, and to ask whether the electronic edition is still (or indeed, if it ever was) supplementary to the print edition.

Utopian Spaces of British Literature and Culture, 1890-1945

From the fin de siècle to the Second World War, the construction of alternative social and private spaces exerted a peculiar fascination for many British writers. The cataclysmic historical events of the period stimulated Utopian thinking and feeling even as they seemed to make them problematic or impossible. At the same time radical demands for new spaces, whether political, religious or aesthetic, also generated new ways of reading and writing the familiar urban and domestic spaces of everyday life.

Self-described "student of science" Bruno Latour defines an actor as "any thing that leaves a trace." In keeping with this year's theme of footprints, this panel welcomes papers that consider the traces left by any thing on the world (whether of humans or non-humans). What buried narratives might we excavate by reading residue? What stories are told by echoes? All approaches are welcome, though eco-critical and material readings may be particularly appropriate. Relevant topics might include:

Reading Ethics in the 21 Century
Call for Papers
Since Aristotle the understanding of ethics as a branch of philosophy has been defined as a pragmatic rather than a theoretical field: ethics does not simply involve a discussion of virtues, but the practice of "virtual activities." It is concerned, as Sartre later insists, with living "in the world," where one has the individual moral responsibility for the other and for the political structure of society. The personal responsibility to act "ethically" in this case is made possible by the essential freedom of choice of each individual.

Fairy Tale Economies

An interdisciplinary, international conference
October 1—3, 2009

Mindful of our own global economies, this colloquium addresses economies in fantastic literature and culture. We shall identify economy both as a theme within literatures and as a way of thinking about the value of fantastic literature itself.

States of Crisis
Friday, 9 October 2009
Brandeis University
Department of English and American Literature
Seventh Annual Graduate Conference

Since its origin in the ancient Greek krisis, "decision," related to krites, a judge, the term crisis has referred to ideas of discernment, evaluation, criticism, and sifting of evidence. In literary studies, for example, one can see moments of crisis in shifting aesthetics and changing genres as well as in literary tradition(s), character representation, and ideas of narrative. Drawing on interdisciplinary approaches and scholarship, this conference will explore different responses to the idea of crisis in the humanities and social sciences.

CFP: Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Popular Culture Association
Theatre and Performance Studies
Boston, MA - November 5-7, 2009

Paper/Panel Proposals Due JUNE 15, 2009.

The study of theatre and performance often reveals unexpected insights into a culture's historical and ideological conditions. Papers in this area will address how the institutions and practices of the performance define concepts of taste, suggest causes and solutions for social conflict, and reflect the importance of race, gender, and religion in relation to national or regional identity. We seek presentations, panels, and papers which focus on the theatre as a reflection of popular and/or American culture. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:

Recently, Toril Moi has argued for a rehabilitation of Ibsen as a modernist dramatist and described a number of key features of his version of modernism: his embrace of theatre as an art form, his critique of theatricality, his foregrounding of a meta-theatrical skepticism, and his preoccupation with the key social issue of the position of women in society (Henrik Ibsen and the Birth of Modernism). This panel will seek to extend Moi's claims by asking if we can identify an "other," early or "original" modernism—one somewhat different from what Moi, borrowing from Frederic Jameson, calls the post-WWII "Ideology of Modernism"—in the works of various fin de siècle dramatists staging rebellious women.
