may include but are not limited to World War I and the New Negro
Renaissance, American writers on the battlefield, mobilization and

UPDATE: [General] DEADLINE EXTENDED: New Directions in Critical Theory Graduate Conference

updated: 
Friday, February 22, 2008 - 5:12pm
Sam Schwartz

New Directions in Critical Theory is an
annual interdisciplinary graduate student
conference at the University of Arizona; the
2008 conference will focus on a selfconscious
examination of the ways we do
work at the university. While interdiscplinarity
questions the boundaries that mark off
everything from university departments to
methods of inquiry, the space between
disciplines is not a neutral zone. When we
shuffle prefixes and suffixes in an attempt to
announce new disciplines and identities, we
work in a liminal space that we participate in
creating. This endeavor must be undertaken
cautiously; remapping disciplines and
identities is never an innocent game.

This one-day event sponsored by the School of Film and Television Studies
will examine how discourses of tabloidism, “reality,” and scandal shape
the construction of female celebrity in contemporary and historical
periods. It originates with the broadly-felt sense that female celebrity
(at least of a certain kind) is seen to be depreciating in value and it
asks why this might be the case. While work on stardom/ celebrity has
acknowledged the existence of hierarchies of fame, surprisingly little
attention has been paid to how such hierarchies are gendered. We will
