Papers and panels which address the ways in which modern culture and individual identities are influenced by relations between technology and society are especially encouraged.
The area of Sexuality and Erotica invites papers that address any aspect of human sexual experience and erotica in any form (literary, artistic --

Call for Papers: Theatre and the Making of Subjects
28-31 October 2010, Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany
The problem of how the subject is constituted stands at a central intersection between the examination of theatrical practices from an aesthetic standpoint on the one hand, and from a cultural studies perspective on the other. Within a theatrical framework, playing with different forms of subjectivity—as a process either of fragmentation or consolidation of the autonomous, self-identical subject—points to the precariousness of constituting the subject since it is destabilized by the playful quality of the theatrical event.
By focusing on the heterogeneous roots of our intellectual property system ISHTIP workshops seek to foster richer contextualization of this system than can be provided by legal history working alone. Information about this year's workshop topic and submission instructions at: http://www.ishtip.org.
