Digital Identities

New Perspective in the Digital Humanities, Kings College London
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Conceptions of identity, community, and space are given a new dimension in the digital age. Particularly since the mid 20th century, there has been a significant interest in the myriad ways that human identity is developed and expressed through technology. Researchers have adopted new tools and adapted old ones in order to account for the ways in which the digital serves to inform, organize, record, and explain both individual and communal identity. It is this flexibility to both adopt new tools and critically interrogate them that is at the center of digital humanities.

Identity and memory play key overlapping roles in both war and peacebuilding. Indeed, the construction of collective identities can make a difference between choosing war or choosing more peaceful paths to dispute resolution. Identity is also deeply entwined in the ways we choose to remember past wars, through commemorations and memorials.

American Drama’s Ethical Transactions

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 3:26pm
The American Theatre and Drama Society and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.
