Call for Papers

Performance, Space, and Public Memory in the Americas

American Studies Association Annual Meeting
October 20-23, 2011
Baltimore, Maryland

This session seeks interdisciplinary papers that explore the role of performance in creating and disseminating public memory in the Americas. Some questions we hope to address include: How is performance utilized by those in power to construct memory? How can performance destabilize historical narrative? How is political and/or performative speech used in memorial practices? How does embodiment create, disseminate, sustain or challenge public memory? How are space and performance colonized for memorial use?

[UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED] CFP: Time, Memory, and Region in American Literature

updated: 
Monday, January 3, 2011 - 12:39pm
American Literature Association (conference) Robert Murray, (panel chair)

This panel, proposed for the 2011 American Literature Association convention in Boston, will investigate the intersections of time, memory, and region in American Literature of the 19th and 20th centuries. What are the consequences of considering time as Bergsonian duration, or from the perspective of Heidegger, Sartre, or Deleuze? How is time as space related to the idea of time as geographical location? Considerations might include older views, such as Sartre on Faulkner, or newer work, such as Wai Chee Dimock's ideas of "deep time" and nation-states in American literature. We seek papers that explore the ways in which time might be seen as an element of place, and consequently investigate alternate models of regionality which include temporality.

Francophonies: The Living and the Dead

March 18-19th 2011

Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA

The 2011 Graduate Student Conference, hosted by the Department of French
Studies at Louisiana State University, will explore the concepts of life, death, and afterlife in French and Francophone literature as well as how these ideas apply to the French language, itself. How do the motifs of passing away or coming into being function in French and Francophone narratives? What can we say about the trajectory of French as a living or dying language? (What deaths has it suffered? How is it being reborn?) What evidence can we see of French afterlives (linguistic or cultural) in territories, departments, and former colonies?
