[UPDATE]Talking Tongues, Speaking Gestures: International Conference on Orality & Performance (01/12-13-14/10; Deadline10/15/09)

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 11:26pm
Jadavpur University

The oral, as a system of communication, while connecting the speaker and the listener in a network of communitic experiences, produces epistemological parameters status for the individual and the community.The three day-international conference will dwell on the questions of epistemology, identity and agency as emanating from the oral within the social—including indigenous and the cosmopolitan life worlds—without inviting/invoking an essential distinction between the two. Moreover, the conference will also address performance as an integral part of orality to understand the link and rupture between the sacred and the profane and between history and memory. It will inaugurate memory as mobilizing cognition and subjectivity.

[Update] Footnotes: New Directions in David Foster Wallace Studies

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 6:34pm
CUNY Graduate Center

Tuesday, August 4, 2009 - 4:27pm
Christopher Loar / American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies

Studies of fear in the long eighteenth century have tended to concentrate on the Gothic novel, while critical work on eighteenth-century emotion has typically emphasized melancholy, sensibility, and tearfulness. This panel will investigate the cultural work done by fear and its representations outside the confines of the
Gothic. How was fear thought to shape the political and social subject? How was fear of a monarch's, a state's, a society's, or a deity's power related to the problems of governmentality, discipline, and obedience? Were women and men thought to respond to fearful situations and stimuli in the same way—and, if not,
