CfP: (Contingent) Iterations. Performative Correspondences of Memory and
Gender

Conference Organisers: Sabine Lucia Müller (Berlin), Anja Schwarz (Berlin)
Date, Place: 03.-04.11.2006, Freie Universitaet Berlin
Deadline: 22.05.2006/ 09.10.2006

Over the past 15 years, 'Memory', 'Commemoration', and 'Forgetting' have
become vital concepts in the humanities. They have been discussed from
national as well as transnational perspectives across a wide range of
disciplines. In roughly the same time span, the notion of 'Gender' has
received similarly augmented interdisciplinary attention, eventually leading
to the concept's academic institutionalisation in a number of countries.

Call for Submissions on Home/lessness

Locus Suspectus, a new magazine of art and culture, seeks textual and
visual proposals for its second issue exploring the notion of "home".
Globalization has made it increasingly difficult to conceive of home
as a
singular and stable location. Moreover, home for many individuals often
exists as a constant state of homelessness due to social, economic, and
political circumstances. Despite this plurality of meaning, home often
carries with it a nostalgic longing for stasis and a pressure and
tendency
to identify ourselves and others largely in terms of where we live and
where we have come from.
