The Artfulness of Play: Bridging Creative and Theoretical Discourses (Sept 25 - 27, 2009)

Children, athletes, actors, and musicians all play. Can academics play too? What do we play? Numerous currents of contemporary thought, from Wittgenstein to Baudrillard and Derrida, highlight play as a site worthy of inquiry. However, play does not (cannot?) have a precise sense or definition, and therefore our aim will be to put ideas into play, to play with them.

Graduate students and artists are invited to participate in an interdisciplinary conference regarding the concept of play. Academic papers, artwork (visual and performance), and film (short and feature length) are welcome.

As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

2009 marks, in addition to an historic moment in US politics, the anniversary of many watershed moments in the history of Hispanic Literatures. On the Peninsula, this year marks the 400th anniversary of the expulsion of the moriscos from Spain, ending the era of the so-called convivencia of three cultures in Iberia. In Latin America, we celebrate the 400th anniversary of the 1609 publication of the Comentarios Reales by the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, offering a new perspective in the telling of indigenous history in the New World. . In more recent history, we commemorate seventy years since the end of the Spanish Civil War and the ushering in of a dictatorship, which would attempt to silence dissident voices in three ensuing decades.
