NEW FIELDS OF PLAY

The editors of NEW FEILDS OF PLAY: ENACTMENTS IN CRITICISM invite submissions for its inaugural issue, Fall 2013. New Fields of Play will feature original works of criticism in a variety of forms, including sound recording, visual art, video, text, and hybrids thereof, that enact as well as argue their interpretive, analytical, and/or critical claims. The editors are particularly eager to review trans-disciplinary works that engage audiences beyond the institutional academic on topics related to performance, drama, theater, performativity and enactive criticism (including stand-up, new/interactive media, role-playing, visual culture) and that do so in ways that push the boundaries of traditional academic publication.

Bowling Green State University Presents the 8th Annual Battleground States Conference
Title: Crossing Boundaries, Revealing Connections: Experiments in Interdisciplinary Studies
February 22nd – 24th 2013

Culture is mercurial and fluid. Thus research must create, but also dispute yet engage, a transformational and reflective understanding of our subjects. The examination of knowledge and epistemologies from varying perspectives reveals the interconnections of vastly varying subjects. But to find these connections we first need to explore and experiment.

Borrow Language: Remixes, Mash Ups and Rip Offs (Deadline: October 31, 2012)

Canadian Journal for the Study of Discourse and Writing/Rédactologie

The new editorial team of the Canadian Journal for Studies in Discourse and Writing /Rédactologie invites submissions for its inaugural special issue on representations of others' talk and text. Specifically, this issue will focus on those shifting practices and perspectives that impinge on or challenge public and institutional discussions of borrowed language. The inter-animated workings of online discourse, renewed debates about copyright law and new sites of collaborative writing, alongside perennial concerns about student writing, suggest that conceptions of linguistic borrowing need further consideration.

Was it why I sometimes felt as weary of America as if I too had landed in what was now South Carolina in 1526 or in Jamestown in 1619? Was it the tug of all the lost mothers and orphaned children? Or was it that each generation felt anew the yoke of a damaged life and the distress of being a native stranger, an eternal alien?
--Saidiya Hartman, Lose Your Mother

We are not the same. I am an alien.
--Lil' Wayne, "Phone Home"

Multilingual Early Middle English

Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 5:00am
Early Middle English Society for Kalamazoo 2013

Multilingual Early Middle English
This panel is interested in papers that reimagine the boundaries of Early Middle English in a multilingual milieu. We are interested in papers that think about multilingualism on the page, multilingual texts in one manuscript, or how multilingualism can make Early Middle English an interesting expertimental zone for code-switching and mixed language. We are also interested in how other media (music, visual, etc.) may also help reimagine multilingualism and the production of early Middle English.

Please send abstracts to: dokim@vassar.edu by September 15

ASU 18th Southwest English Symposium: -isms, -ologies, and -istics: Conversations Across the Disciplines

Graduate Scholars of English Association

February 15-16, 2013
Contact Us: swes.asu@gmail.com

Given the multifaceted nature of English departments, the aim of this conference is to explore a cross-disciplinary conversation about ideologies and ideas. Because disciplines are largely characterized by their theoretical movements or opposition to such movements, submissions to this conference are encouraged to focus on suffixes. For instance, how do the suffixes of academia play a role in specific fields of study? How might -isms, -ologies, and -istics reinforce the sometimes disparate conversations among or within disciplines? How can they build connections between disciplines?
