Queer(ing) decoloniality

The upcoming February lectures conference and edited collection will explore how, in contemporary South Africa, queer lives and queer writing intersect with the narratives of colonial history, the actualities of the postcolonial now, and, specifically, the drive towards decoloniality.

We would like to invite chapter contributions that open spaces of discussion and exploration between queer theory and narrative(s) of the contemporary moment in South Africa, but also more generally in the global South, such as:

2018 marks the tenth anniversary of Lehman Brothers’ bankruptcy, the beginning of widespread public awareness of the global financial crisis. In contrast to the assertions of experts in the years preceding the crash that the economy was simply too complex for individuals to understand, novels and films have emerged in the past decade as key genres in which to explore the causes and consequences of the financial crisis. This panel seeks to address two primary questions with regard to narratives of the financial crisis:

 

1) What is their ideological function, and

2) what is their ongoing cultural and historical significance?

SETC Theatre Symposium Volume 27

“Theatre and Embodiment”

DATES: April 13-15, 2018

LOCATION: Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA

 

At the heart of the theatrical act is the simultaneous live presence of the actor and the audience. Given primacy of bodies in and to the theatrical act, how do we understand those bodies as communicating meaning? How do bodies understand themselves as operating within the theatrical or performative context? The 2018 Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) Theatre Symposium will focus on the interplay between theatre and embodiment. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Journal Imaginaires (CIRLEP, Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne) Call for papers: Places of rupture Major works of art are often the result of a break or of several breaks with their time, which leads their authors to reconfigure their worldviews, reinvent their use of language, modify a genre, or conceive a new theory. But a work itself is also made up of flows and rhythms that delineate or destroy the main features of a man’s existence, a community or a territory for others to take form or be wiped out for ever.

Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal of Medieval Studies is a refereed, peer-reviewed, and born-digital journal devoted to the culture, literature, history, and society of the medieval past. Published semi-annually, the journal collects exceptional examples of work by graduate students on a number of themes, disciplines, subjects, and periods of medieval studies. We also welcome book reviews of monographs published or re-released in the past five years that are of interest to medievalists. For the Fall issue we are particularly interested in reviews of books which fall under the current special topic.
