'The tradition of the oppressed teaches us that the 'state of emergency' in which we live is not the exception but the rule. We must attain to a conception of history which is in keeping with this insight. Then we shall clearly realize that it is our task to bring about a real state of emergency, and this will improve our position in the struggle against fascism.'

(Re)Mixed Grooves: Disco, Hip-Hop, and the Poetics of Sampling
If "disco is dead" and "hip-hop is in crisis" then what do we make of renewed and continued interest in these genres--and how are disco and hip-hop relevant to literary texts? Recent scholarship on disco culture (by Alice Echols, Peter Shapiro, Tim Lawrence, and Vince Aletti) and critical studies about hip-hop culture (by Tricia Rose, Bakari Kitwana, Adam Bradley, Gwendolyn Pough, and Jeff Chang) insist on examining the complexities within these musical genres, their cultures, and descendents.
This panel seeks papers on gender-crossings in fiction and drama by authors on both sides of the Atlantic. Topics might include a variety of literary and performative crossings, which transgress and re-imagine gender roles, or challenge the notion of discrete binaries of gender and sexuality. Of particular interest are papers that explore the ways in which literary masquerades, transvestitisms, and carnivalesque versions of gender or sexual identity intersect with issues of race, class, and national identity.
Complete essay drafts (20-40 pp. double-spaced) are invited for a collection of essays to appear in the Winter 2012-13 issue of Journal for Medieval and Early Modern Studies, edited by Lloyd Kermode and Janette Dillon. The topic of "space" is conceived broadly; we currently have essays on physical theatrical spaces, notions of sacred and secular space, domestic space, bodily relations with urban and environmental space, the relationship of space and place, psychological space. Please email ompkete essays as Word attachments to Lloyd Kermode at email@example.com. Decisions and reports will be returned within three weeks. Final versions of accepted papers are due early summer 2012.
Initial invitations were sent for DS7 around May/June 2011.
Please politely ask around; closefriends, closecolleagues.
A call for entries to be made (more) public sometime
late this year or 2012.
You may send for your entry and grants now.
Thank you for your future time. Sincerely,
a peer-reviewed, open-source online journal, published by Rivendale Press, U.K. and dedicated to research in turn-of-the-century dramatic literature, theatre, and theatrical culture, seeks submissions year-round. This is a development of the pages published under this name as part of THE OSCHOLARS, and is now an independently edited journal in the Oscholars group published at www.oscholars.com, as part of our expanding coverage of the different cultural manifestations of the fin de siècle.
