"Playing at Violence"
The Association for Theatre in Higher Education's 2013 Conference (Orlando, FL; Aug 1-4, 2013)
I am looking for 1-2 more panelists to fill out a possible panel for the
Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference in 2013. The panel, which will be submitted to the Performance Studies Focus Group, will explore the contours of performances that engage in some way with the ideas of violence, play, and performance. How do these three concepts interact? How is violence (or representations of violence) "playful"? How is violence performed? Possible themes
may include (but are certainly not limited to):

Seminar Title: (Re)formulations of Blackness in 21st-century France
Co-Organizers: Mame-Fatou Niang & Jean-Baptiste Meunier
"The BRAIN—is wider than the sky—"
The turn towards the influence of affect and emotions on "rational decision making" as response to the false separation between mind and body – what neuroscientist Antonio Damasio calls "Descartes' Error" – has had wide appeal in recent years in the humanities and other fields. This conference intends to explore recent theoretical frontiers that address the mind-body problem through interdisciplinary perspectives. How can we continue to think about mind-body relations, connections, or disruptions in new ways across disciplinary boundaries?

TELEMATICS AND WORLD LITERATURE
David Kelman (California State University, Fullerton), Jennifer Ballengee (Towson University)
Muslim women have been the subject of interrogation and questioning both in the Muslim world and in the non-Muslim world. A relentless questioning of their 'role,' 'subjectivity,' and 'identity' has been fair game for both intellectual and popular debate. This debate has become more pronounced in the aftermath of 9/11, break-up of the Russian block, migration of Muslims (refugees and others) from their native countries, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and after the Arab Spring. The 'face' of the Muslim woman stares back at the onlooker from the covers of magazines, from Orientalized and romanticized visions to that of women suppressed by patriarchy and illiteracy.
