The seventh annual Université de Montréal English graduate conference seeks to examine the constructed nature of human life and thus invites 250-300 words abstract for papers dealing with the notions of performance and performativity in literature and the arts. Although performance was traditionally associated with theatre and the interpretation of a written text by actors, the idea of performance also applies to everyday life, to the behaviour individuals are obligated to adopt in order to function in society. Every face-to-face encounter becomes a performance especially if we think of performativity as the internalization of a script.

In an effort to promote scholarly discourse in all disciplines and fields, the Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Washington, Seattle invites graduate students to submit papers addressing notions of adaptation, a concept Dudley Andrew calls, "potentially as far reaching as you like" (Andrew, Concepts in Film Theory, 1984). The appearance of two journals dedicated to adaptation studies in the past two years along with the proliferation of theoretical texts on the subject testify to the ever-increasing reach of the topic.
