[UPDATE] DEADLINE EXTENDED -- "alt/" Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference (March 16-17, 2013; abstracts due 1/15/13)

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.

UPDATE. CFP: Revista Alicantina de Estudios Ingleses (journal issue). Performing identities

University of Alicante

RAEI is a referred journal published once a year by the Department of English Studies at the University of Alicante. We are now seeking for the next issue "Performing Identity, Performing Culture" (December 2013) essays which aim at discussing the issues raised by the definition of performance and performativity in relation to the politics of identity and culture in current cultural studies. Over the last fifty or sixty years, a growing interest in performance discourse – with its emphasis on the body, that is, on human experience, practices and affections – has taken place, floating free of theatre precincts and extending itself to other disciplines, including cultural studies.
