AIDS in Literature (4/14/06; MMLA, 11/09-12/06; Chicago, IL)
 
In "AIDS, Keywords and Cultural Work," Jan Zita Grover remarks that people infected with HIV/AIDS find the boundaries of normativity challenged and re-configured and that people carrying the virus no longer view themselves as integrated, "but instead as a container for the virus." Michel Foucault underscores Grover's claim, linking the fear of death resulting from AIDS to using such fractive or dis-integrative strategies to cope with the fear of impending death.

CFP: Visual Archives and Embodied Practice

This panel looks to the archive as a motivating device for intervention, rather
than as an inert repository of empirical data. In other words, we're interested
in discussing how archival research becomes embodied in practices, and would
like to reconsider the agents and institutions mediating these embodiments.

performance, published by the Johns Hopkins University Press, is pleased
to announce workshop titles for the RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION
conference, to be held November 8-12, 2006 on the University of Toronto

RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION will give scholars interested in performance
an opportunity to grapple with the practical realities of moving from
the page to the stage. Conference participants will sign up for a
rehearsal-and-performance workshop. Each workshop will focus on a
single scene from a play, one which exemplifies particular problems,
challenges, and/or rewards involved in staging renaissance drama.
