Jetzt: Contemporary and Historical Figurations
March 31/April 1, 2012
Keynote Speaker: Peter Fenves (Northwestern University)

"Now: it has already ceased to be since it was pointed out; the now that is is an other than that pointed out to us, it is what has been."
(Hegel, The Phenomenology of Spirit)

The now, by virtue of its ephemerality, presents a series of problems for attempts to define it. Along with its deictic counterpart the here, it resists the fixity of any determinate content. Yet this very quality of now simultaneously includes a generative power—as demonstrated by ongoing attempts to conceptualize, interpret, produce or poeticize the now.

MMLA Drama Session: Drama of Wealth. Cincinnati. November 2012

updated: 
Sunday, November 27, 2011 - 7:41pm
Midwest Modern Language Association. Drama Session.

The Drama panel welcomes papers on the An Embarrassment of Riches: The Drama of Wealth. Given the MMLA's theme of Debt, it seemed fitting to celebrate dramas of abundance. Interpretations of wealth and abundance may be applied widely through such works as Cloud Nine with its excessive gender options or more narrowly through a work such as Enron. Please send 250-300 word abstracts via electronic attachment to Ann C. Hall, Chair of the Drama panel, halla@ohiodominican.edu, by May 1, 2012. Selected presenters will be informed by June 1, 2012, and must register for the conference by July 1, 2012.

Hall at halla@ohiodominican.edu by 17 March 2012. Panelists must be members of the International Harold Pinter Society and the MLA by 6 April 2012.

The conference aims to explore the presence of French plays and players in England, and their influence upon native dramatists, critics and actors. By means of scrutinising English adaptations of French plays and their critics' and audiences' reception, it intends to illustrate the economic, aesthetic and political tensions emerging and crystallising between England and France since the nineteenth century.

UPDATE Crossroads 7-8 June, 2012 Toulouse, France

updated: 
Saturday, November 26, 2011 - 8:15am
University of Toulouse

There are still a few places open at the International Conference on Crossroads (treating the English speaking world).

We invite proposals treating the many senses of the term "crossroads," whether physical or not: countries, regions, towns, roads, monuments, sanctuaries, inns, or pilgrimage sites , but also books, paintings, installations or performances. New forms of expression, federating ideas, political and cultural negotiations, cosmopolitanism, cross-fertilizations between the arts, and hybridization of forms and genres can be found at such sites of convergence.
