Does a story ever truly finish, or does it carry on when translated into another medium? When a work of art is reinscribed into a cinematic or televisual text, does it in some ways get a new lease on life? For instance, does David Cronenberg's M. Butterfly (1993), based on the play by David Henry Hwang which itself uses Puccini's Madama Butterfly as a source, rely on audiences to know and recognize its previous source texts to make a larger point? Is this a case of artistic vampirism or taking advantage of the originary text to gain traction and promotion?
We invite you to submit a paper to The 1st International Conference on Speech and Multimodal Interaction in Assistive Environments (SMIAE 2012): http://www.informatik.uni-bremen.de/smiae/2012/ , to be held at the 50th Annual Meeting of the Association of Computational Linguistics (http://www.acl2012.org/), on July 8th - 14th, 2012, in Jeju, Republic of Korea.
The University at Albany English Graduate Student Organization presents its 10th annual graduate conference:
March 30-31, 2012
There are as many ways to conceptualize waste as there are ways in which waste permeates our world. It is ubiquitous; it figures into existence at every level. The history of waste is a history of equivocation, affirmation, disavowal, subsistence, persistence, inconvenience, differentiation, destruction, and decay. From the pragmatics of city sanitation to the logistics of disaster relief, from the remainders of mathematical equations to the emotive excesses of sentimental novels, the problem of "what remains" is central to the practice of academic inquiry.

The Religion and Theatre Focus Group is invested in assisting scholars who work with the intersection of theatre/performance practice with religion/spirituality. How have theatre and performance coincided with religiously motivated innovation? What are the religious or spiritual components of theatrical, artistic, cultural, political, linguistic, or economical innovation, and what are their performative counterparts?
