Non-Binary: Retheorizing Romantic Sexes and Genders

deadline for submissions:

This panel seeks to retheorize social constructivists accounts of Romantic sex and gender circulating since the early 80s that continue to persist and insist—however unwittingly—on a binaristic or universalistic normativity (hetero- or otherwise). Moreover, all such accounts are often firmly anthropocentric, offering little flexibility to engage the nonhuman in all of its material forms. More recent New Materialist accounts of sexes and genders provide resources for moving forward from the confines of the discursive prison of sex and gender that retains within it, again however unwittingly or unwillingly, a binarism between the social and the material, the human and the nonhuman.

Political Performances Working Group at IFTR Shanghai 2019

Monday, November 5, 2018 - 10:31am
International Federation of Theatre Research - Political Performances Working Group
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 7, 2019

We would like to invite researchers to submit their abstracts to the Political Performances Working Group at the 2019 IFTR conference, which will take place on 8-12 July in Shanghai, China. The theme for the 2019 conference is Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism. We have identified three loose strands that reflect the recent work of many researchers in the wider field of political performances, but that also align with the 2019 conference theme. The Political Performances Working Group therefore invites proposals for papers on the following topics:

(A)     Citizenship

Corroding the Now: Poetry + Science|SF

updated: 
Monday, November 5, 2018 - 10:38am
Royal Holloway, University of London
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 14, 2019

The world we inhabit is framed, driven, (re)produced, and conceptualised by and through science. Science as a mode of knowing contours the prevailing episteme, whilst technological innovation continues to remake work and leisure experience. At the same time, society is both reflected and in turn formed by science fiction (SF): as contributor to the nostalgia economy, as a dominant visual-commercial aesthetic, as a mimetic index of the present’s utopian and dystopian tendencies. The now is a time of extreme precarity. We face a raft of catastrophes – political, socioeconomic, and, most pressingly, ecological. And yet, even as our own survival comes into question, capitalism itself seems unassailable, primed to outlast ‘humanity.’

[UPDATED] -- Breaking Down the Walls: New Directions in Environmental Thinking for the Anthropocene

updated: 
Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 9:25pm
ASLE: Association for the Study of Literature and the Environment
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018

This panel invites interdisciplinary thinkers to transcend standardized methodologies for teaching and learning about the environment.  The ASLE Biennial Conference (themed 'Paradise on Fire') will be held at University of California, Davis, from June 26-30, 2019.

Paradise is burning - or melting, flooding, or otherwise collapsing.  In actuality, these collapses are simultaneous, or convergent as Christian Parenti has termed it.  Or, as a recent article states, "when the Arctic melts, the West burns."
