a conference on performance arts and posthumanism
University of Sussex, 21-22 May 2010
The shape of nationalist fervor is drawn against a background of coherent visuals. But what if the mother tongue speaks in pluralities at the very origin of the nation? This panel seeks to examine the roles of multilingualisms, accents, dialects, and inflections within and upon the national project, as well as the effects of gendered experience on nationalist constructs.
This panel welcomes papers from a wide variety of disciplines and scholarly perspectives,including pedagogy and the interdisciplines.

(Re)Constructing the American West
Columbia University, NYC
June 11-13, 2010
Announcing the Columbia-Penn Poetics Initiative.
We are convening a three-day conference at Columbia (June 11-13, 2010), "Rethinking Poetics." It is our sense that the practices of poetics are in danger of becoming pro forma and that a focused, skeptical examination of basic assumptions will be most useful. Terms continue to be used routinely in circumstances that increasingly call for nuanced or even fundamental change. What does "materiality of the signifier" mean in the era of data mining or platform instability? What does "news" mean? How useful are current periodizations? Such questions can be multiplied.
Reminder: May 1 is our target date to receive all proposals for papers at the Culture After Postmodern Culture conference at UC Irvine in October 9, 2010. Some funds are available for presenters whose proposals are accepted. We hope to include work revised from the conference in an issue of the journal Postmodern Culture.
See you in October!
CALL FOR PAPERS:
Cultures of Militarization and the Military-Cultural Complex
TOPIA: Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies
Theme Double Issue, Summer/Fall 2010. Ed. Jody Berland and Blake Fitzpatrick
For this special issue we seek papers that address cultures of militarization or that raise questions concerning the ubiquity of militarization as a presence woven into the fabric of civic culture. We also open the possibility of holding the terms culture and militarization apart, in order to investigate the ways a militarized presence is normalized or critiqued in private, public and national narratives.
