Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"
11/9/2008)

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.
