Call for Proposals
Recent attacks on Chican@ and Ethnic Studies programs are reminders of the need for spaces to produce knowledge in, about, and for our communities. This conference provides an environment to encounter and engage recent work by those who situate their teaching, research, writing, creative activities, and advocacy on and beyond an academic campus. This call for proposals centers on the ways in which academic research, creative activities, pedagogy, and activism can directly affect and become embedded in these communities.

Call for papers
Iconic Shakespearean actresses such as Peggy Ashcroft (1988) have marvelled at the versatility and depth of Shakespeare's feminine roles. Lady Macbeth, Beatrice, Ophelia, Queen Margaret, Juliet, Paulina, Desdemona, Volumnia, Lavinia… all are characters which have been variously represented, or objectified in Western culture, and whose names have now become easily recognizable emblems or concepts—even myths.

Papers are invited for a two-day refereed conference on Disnarration from 1st to 2nd March 2013, at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India.

Gerald Prince's introduction of the 'disnarrated' in 1988 marks an interesting milestone in the evolution of narrative theory. The notion of what could have, but does not happen in a narrative, opens up new ways of looking at texts and at their visibility, overt and implicit.

Health data, although widely and diligently collected, continue to be under-utilised for research and evaluation. How to make use of the enormous amount of health data efficiently and effectively is one of fundamental issues that health researchers encounter today. Such research holds a great promise to improve the quality of patient care, prevent potential medical errors, and reduce healthcare cost. To accomplish this objective, the collaborations of both practical applications and theoretical research will be essential.

Filming this Insubstantial Pageant: Medieval and Renaissance Drama on Film (Abstracts due Sept. 30)

updated: 
Monday, September 10, 2012 - 7:47am
full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Language Association (conference Mar. 2013)
contact email: 

This panel seeks papers about film adaptations of medieval and Renaissance English drama, both in English-speaking countries and around the world. The NeMLA conference will be held in Boston in March, 2013. Papers might compare different adaptations of the same play, discuss problems associated with the notion of fidelity to text or of relocating a play in a different historical or cultural milieu, or consider the effectiveness for use in scholarly work or in the classroom. We seek investigation of continuities across disciplines: medieval/Renaissance, cinema studies/literature. What is at stake in these adaptations? What do these directors, writers, performers, and audiences bring to the table?
