CFP: antiTHESIS Volume 21 – "Futures"

updated: 
Wednesday, August 4, 2010 - 1:57am
School of Culture & Communications, University of Melbourne

It has become increasingly difficult to conceive of our culture as following a dialectical progression from a shared past into a collective future, whether utopian or dystopian. We find ourselves instead at a point at which "The Future," a key concept in all branches of Western thought, creativity and experience, is replaced by myriad "Futures" of immediate relevance and consequence. How is our relationship to the future changing, and how do we actualise these potential futures?

The editors of antiTHESIS are seeking papers exploring the concept of futures to be published in Volume 21 of the journal. Graduate students and researchers from all disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences are invited to submit.

Postcolonial Theatre - Call for Papers and Performances, Feb.4-6, 2011: University of Toronto

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 11:42am
Graduate Drama Centre, University of Toronto, Canada

The 2011 Festival of Original Theatre conference sponsored by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Drama at the University of Toronto will focus its discussion and praxis entirely on the field of Post-Colonial theatre. The 2011 F.O.O.T. festival is designed to reflect the multi-cultural diversity of the city we inhabit, and to encourage an integrative approach between the theoretical and practical. The festival intends to promote and discuss contemporary trends in the emerging field of post-colonial performance studies as it relates to contentious issues ever-present in various cultural/multi-racial communities (such as race, marginality, migration, agency and hegemony).

Theatricality and Performance in Victorian Literature and Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 6:34am
The Victorian Network

The fourth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Dr. Beth Palmer (University of Surrey), will explore the various ways in which the Victorians related to concepts of performance and theatricality. The theatre held a central place in the Victorian imagination. Nineteenth-century investments in theatrical culture, as well as in theatrical modes of marketing and consuming literature, reflect in particularly interesting ways on the diverse performances – of class, gender, racial and national identities etc. – which shaped Victorian everyday life. We are therefore inviting submissions of no more than 7000 words investigating any aspect of this theme. A prize of £50, which we reserve the right to withhold, will be awarded for the best paper submitted.

The University of Western Australia

Limina is an online, refereed, academic journal of historical and cultural studies based in the Discipline of History at The University of Western Australia.

We are especially committed to publishing the work of postgraduate students and early career researchers, realising the importance of developing an early publication record, as well as the difficulties in doing so.

CFP: Hemingway's Short Fiction, Louisville Conference 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 2, 2010 - 12:04am
Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

While Hemingway's fiction remains a focus for many critics, not every piece of fiction Hemingway wrote engenders ample criticism. Susan Beegel, in Hemingway's Neglected Short Fiction: New Perspectives, outlines a few ways in which certain short works of Hemingway continue to be the subject of criticism ranging from sentence-length dismissals scattered throughout book length studies to full-length essays lacking meaningful contributions to the work's scholarly cache. Beegel's explanation of neglected short fiction including works featured in essays which have lacked critical stature is the starting point for this panel proposal.
