Gender studies is an interdisciplinary field of academic study on the issues of gender in its social and cultural contexts. Since its emergence from feminism, gender studies have become one of the most deliberated disciplines. The following project aims at an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and perspectives on the issues of femininity and masculinity in the 21st century. It invites ground-breaking research on a plethora of topics connected with gender, to propose an interdisciplinary view of the frontiers and to stake out new territories in the study of femininity and masculinity.

[UPDATE] Transnational Negotiation in the Cross-Cultural Remake (NeMLA March 15-18, 2012. Rochester, NY)

Gohar Siddiqui/ Syracuse University

This panel welcomes papers that deal with issues pertaining to cross-cultural remakes: plagiarism and copyright; gender and nation; genre, intertextuality, and audience; and, globalization. Much work has been done on Hollywood remakes of Hollywood films but the area of cross-cultural remakes remains relatively under-theorized. Most scholarship on remakes concerns itself with issues of adaptation and homage in the remake; plagiarism and recycling; anxiety of influence in the remake, etc. While these factors acquire a different inflection in the cross-cultural remake, it becomes imperative to ask certain additional questions when films cross industries, nations, and cultures: What is the nature of intertextuality here?

[REMINDER] Historicizing Performance in the Early Modern Period, January 20, 2012, The John Rylands Library, Deansgate, Manchest

Michael Durrant and Naya Tsentourou / The University of Manchester

This one-day academic conference aims to bring together scholars working on all aspects of performance in the early modern period (taken broadly to include the fifteenth to the early eighteenth centuries). We intend to interrogate what performance and its related terminologies and practices might have meant to early modern readers, playgoers, and congregations; how performance shaped and/or undermined distinctions between private/public bodies and selves. Although drama is an essential point of reference for this discussion, we encourage that "historicizing performance" be taken as broadly as possible. Topics might include (but are not limited to):

Sensible Flesh: Rethinking the Body in the 21st Century - Seminar group 17th Oct, 14th Nov, and 12th Dec 2011; London

Keynote speaker: Dr. Lisa Blackman (Goldsmiths University), 17th October

'I cannot move without it. I cannot leave it there where it is, so that I, myself, may go elsewhere. I can go to the other end of the world; I can hide in the morning under the covers, make myself as small as possible. I can even let myself melt under the sun at the beach – it will always be there. Where I am. It is here, irreparably; it is never elsewhere. My body' – Michel Foucault

3rd Global Conference
Making Sense of: Pain

Saturday 19th May – Monday 21st May 2012
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Papers:
Pain and the body's vulnerability to it are inevitable aspects of the experience of all sentient beings. Pain is universally feared. Many, if not all, fields of human activity have the potential to occasion pain – and much of what we do as individuals and/or collectivities involves our efforts to prevent, ameliorate, cure or avoid pain. Nonetheless, despite the unpleasantness and sometimes the agony of the experience of pain, we are also capable of enduring it. Depending on the context, we may do so willingly.
