Garcia Puente, Maria

Immigration is a phenomenon that contemporary societies struggle with. In this context the figure of the foreigner is a good scenario to explore the dynamics and tensions of cultures in contact. The liminal perspective provided by the outsider adds a new interpretation of our own reality, questioning the foundations of the canonical culture and our own identities. "What appear to be cultural units-human beings, words, meanings, ideas, philosophical systems, social organizations-are maintained in their apparent unity only through an active process of exclusion, opposition, and hierarchization.

CFP: Cinematic Homesick Blues (10/15/06; SASA,
2/14/07-2/18/07)

This panel for the Southern American Studies Association
(SASA) will explore filmic uses of the blues and southern
music as an ethnic and/or regional signifier. Of particular
interest is the blues as signifier not only of place but of
time, i.e., blues as signifier for nostalgia and/or the
past. Other areas of interest include but are not limited
to: the filmic relationship between visual images and the
blues, diegetic versus nondiegetic uses of the blues, and
transcultural uses of the blues.

"Parables in Drama"

Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) Conference
New Orleans
July 26-29, 2007

Parables and drama, and specifically parables in drama, work performatively
to "redescribe" the world as we know it and force the audience to perform a
redescription of reality. They deserve our attention for the ways in which the
self and our world are constructed and deconstructed. But most especially,
parables in drama consider layers of readings that highlight what the best of
both genres have to offer.
