Michel-Rolph Trouillot closed his 1995 Silencing the Past by reminding us that “History doesn’t belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it in their own hands.” This is nowhere more true than in two historical periods seldom in conversation - the 11th-century phenomenon called the Crusades, and the 19th-century American Civil War. Scholars across disciplines seek to clarify these periods among themselves, while popular audiences voraciously consume these and other retellings of the past, and others “take it in their own hands” by toppling monuments or explicitly evoking these periods as direct predecessors of their own.

“Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance" (SCSECS 2019)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 12:10pm
Ashley Bender / South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions? Submit abstracts of 250-500 words to Ashley Bender at abender@twu.edu.

Mediocrity in the Middle Ages: Finding the Middle Ground11th Annual Medievalists @ Penn (M@P) Graduate ConferenceUniversity of Pennsylvania, February 22nd, 2019Confirmed Keynote Speaker: Sonja Drimmer (UMass Amherst, Art History) What makes something “mediocre” in the Middle Ages? We often assume that if a manuscript, literary text, or work of visual or performance art has survived from the medieval period, it is exceptional in some way. Modern scholarship tends to enforce this assumption by either praising a work for its beauty and importance, or arguing for the centrality and exceptionality of something that past scholarship has ignored. But what of things that have survived that are just OK?

NEMLA 2019-- Orientalism and Representation: From Edward Said to Rey Chow

William Bowden & Sue Kim/ University of Rhode Island
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

This panel consists of conversations relating to Edward Said's critical treatise Orientalism (1978). We will embark on dialogic evaluations of Said's work through a discussion of the representation of the so-called "Orient" in contemporary literature, social media, and pop culture. There are several examples of texts or narratives exploiting individuals because of their ethnicity, and we have discovered several texts by immigrants or the children of immigrants who have succumb to utilizing stereotypes of their own culture for commercial purposes and appropriating their own culture for the sake of attention and wealth.
