Hannah Arendt argued that labor is anti-political because its collective nature precludes the possibility of individual consciousness and because it is performed in the name of the economy of the household. Similarly, scholarship on labor and class has been accused in the past of being too invested in the problem of economic distribution to the detriment of identity and political recognition.

This is a very important note to inform you that the dates for the 2013 SDS Conference have been moved back by exactly one week to Wednesday, June 26 - Saturday, June 29, 2013. The location of the conference will remain the same, the Doubletree Hotel at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, USA.
This change was made necessary because the rapid increase in the size of attendance at the annual SDS Conference. Since this location had been originally arranged, the size of the conference has increased by nearly 50%! In order to ensure plenty of sleeping rooms and appropriate meeting space - SDS needed to renegotiate with the host hotel.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Surviving (in) the world of '24/7'? Questioning the implicit, paradigmatic privileging of the geospatial in Postcolonial Studies, this seminar focuses instead on time (un)coordinated as such, as that which foregrounds and permeates practices of decolonization across the globe. We believe that time, itself a condition of possibility for decolonization (e.g., it takes time), is to be more actively factored into the ongoing, polylocational theorization of the syncopated legacies of colonialism, ranging from epochal questions around the postwar Cold War to everyday issues of how (not) to sync 'now' with the rhythms of global capital.
The Graduate Theatre Syndicate at The Ohio State University will host "Shifting Boundaries/Crossing Cultures: the Politics, Process, and Performance of Collaboration," April 5th and 6th, 2013. We are pleased to announce that the keynote speaker for the conference will be Stephen Wangh, who studied with Jerzy Grotowski in 1967 and is the author of An Acrobat of the Heart. His playwriting credits include work as an Associate Writer for The Laramie Project, The People's Temple, which won the Glickman Award for Best Play in the Bay Area, 2005, and many other collaborative works. Additionally, Stephen Wangh has taught physical acting technique in the United States and Europe.
Like any advanced cartographic process, mapping identity formation requires an imaginary 'cartographic grid.' Until recently, narratives of identity formation, including, in particular, the genres of autobiography and the Bildungsroman, seemed to foreground the temporal dimension over the spatial. However, in "Of Other Spaces", Michel Foucault argues that "We are at a moment … when our experience of the world is less that of a long life developing through time than that of a network that connects points and intersects with its own skein." This seminar investigates how narrative identity constructions are affected by this change.
