Researcher and social activist Jean Anyon, in her investigations of social class reproduction in education, suggests "there is a ‘hidden curriculum’ in school work that has profound implication for theory—and practice—in education” (“Social Class” 67). By making class unhidden in the curriculum, students no longer feel they must "hide" themselves, and allows faculty to foster more honest conversations and writing about such issues.

This session will examine the emergence of invention/experiment with basic materials of expression, such as the word or image, in literature, other arts, and culture. In what ways does novel expression produce meaning, or reflect aesthetic or social change, or belong to broader changes of form or the development of new media? How does it involve cultural or other difference? What novelty is deliberately produced, what inadvertently or passively?

The Mise-en-scène editorial team is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the journal’s premiere issue. Debuting in the fall of 2016, Issue 1:1 will be a multimodal showcase for mise-en-scène scholarship that encompasses the latest research and theoretical concerns in film and media studies. Given the journal’s mandate to renew discourse around one of screen culture’s most ubiquitous yet indefinable terms, the submissions for this and all subsequent calls are to be mise-en-scène centric. Analysis of the image, frame or screen capture must play an essential role in each manuscript.

This panel focuses on the use of American Indian Literary Nationalism as a framework for reading texts by Native authors. We will examine the ways in which AILN has been employed and has created new spaces for interpretations of Native literature.  Since the 2006 publication of the groundbreaking American Indian Literary Nationalism, scholars in the field of Native American Literature are re-evaluating the ways in which texts by Native authors are read. As well, subsequent works analyzing Native literatures using the methods of AILN have been instrumental in creating new spaces for interpretation. This panel focuses on the influence of AILN and its contributions specifically to the field of Native American Literature.

Tours & Detours (special issue) -- Textshop Experiments

The theme of this issue, Tours and Detours, is intended to provoke a wide variety of topics and approaches.  For some, it seeks to examine the interplay between identity, space, history, and memory, exploring the ways in which identities and communities are created, formed, and informed by spatial and temporal contexts.  For others, it conjures up ideas of travel, tourism, and critical heritage, seeking to actively exchange, share, and challenge ideas on information technologies, place-making, and digital economy.  Yet another group of scholars and artists might interpret the topic as rhetorical strategies around impasses of knowledge (what Barthes called the punctum and the situationists referred to as détournement).

The Iron Cage of Work: Cultural Responses to the Institutions of Contemporary Capitalism

In many of his writings, the German sociologist Max Weber condemned the rationality of modern bureaucratic government which, for him, restricted an individual’s freedom by compartmentalizing society. His view of the dangers of the modern state is perhaps best illustrated in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism where Weber notes that the “iron cage” of rationality extended to work as workers were forced, rather than compelled, to labor. Weber’s observation about the intersection between work and bureaucracy as the “iron cage of capitalism” has endured, in part, because of how thinkers, artists, and workers have continued to view the contemporary work-space.

Tragedy and American Drama and Theater: Genre, Mediality, and Ethics - International Conference, June 1 - 3, 2017

Tragedy as a dramatic genre, theatrical practice, and mode of affect is defined by its longevity and rich tradition and has developed into an extraordinarily dynamic genre, firstly as a mode of narration, secondly as a phenomenon of transition and transformation between text and embodied performance that implies the crossing of medial boundaries, and thirdly in a transnational sense that implies the crossing of geographical borders.
