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.
The submission deadline for this call has been extended to December 15, 2012.

"Celebrating Popular/American Culture(s) in a Global Context."
February 13-16, 2013 Hyatt Regency Downtown/ Albuquerque, NM
The Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen jointly welcome panel proposals for an international conference on their common research theme 'Europe and its Worlds'. At the core of this theme is the question of how Europe has always consisted of different worlds, how it differs from the rest of the world, and how it interacts with other worlds. This conference specifically addresses the many ways in which cultural mobility impacts on European culture, past and present. The notion of cultural mobility raises new questions on issues of persistance, change and interaction, as Stephen Greenblatt argues in Cultural Mobility: A Manifesto (2010).
