Consent-Based Theatre Pedagogy: Anti-Oppressive Practices for Youth Performance

Consent-based performance practices have been widely discussed in recent years–specifically those practices related to the staging of intimacy in live performance and in film. While scholarship dedicated to the practices, theories, and politics of consent in theatrical and cinematic labor continues to accumulate, the use of consent-based practices in theatrical settings to impact the artistic and social-emotional learning of youth remains largely underexplored.

Reproductive Justice and the Humanities in Times of Crisis: Hybrid Symposium

updated: 
Thursday, November 9, 2023 - 3:44pm
University of York, UK and online
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 15, 2024

Reproductive justice was developed as an international human-rights framework by activists and scholars in the 1990s and has become a cornerstone of intersectional feminist theory and practice within social sciences. Yet, it is only recently that researchers in arts and humanities have begun to tap the rich interdisciplinary potential this framework offers for bringing together reproductive rights, social justice, and cultural representation. In a contemporary moment shaken by ecological and economic crises, rises in far-right nationalisms across the globe, and the rolling back of hard-fought sexual rights in the USA, attention to questions of reproductive justice across the disciplinary spectrum is more urgent than ever.

CFP: The Global South (Journal): “Toxic Ecologies of the Global South”—Deadline December 31st, 2023

Shouldn’t the World Bank be encouraging more migration of the dirty industries to the LDCs (less developed countries)? … I think the economic logic behind dumping a load of toxic waste in the lowest wage country is impeccable and we should face up to that… I’ve always thought that under-populated countries in Africa are vastly under-polluted. (Lawrence Summers, chief economic advisor to the IMF, 1991).

Cinephile 18.1 – (Un)recovering Lost Futures

The late cultural theorist Mark Fisher asks, “how long can a culture persist without the new?” For Fisher, the postmodern future under capitalist realism, “harbours only reiteration and re-permutation” (6-7). In capitalism’s inability to look beyond itself, media culture has become excessively nostalgic and “incapable of generating any authentic novelty” (63). Accordingly, one can observe a certain malaise surrounding media’s inability to imagine new and alternative futures.

Call for Creative Submission | Writing with the Bots | AI Literature Submission

Using neural networks, the AI literature tools produce human-like pieces of literature that are, in most cases, marked by twisted imitations of the masterpieces both in language and content. The ‘Artificial’ is repetitive and selected from the vast body of literature available on the web or from the classics, a particular language model is fed with. With this caveat, we venture into experimenting with writing with the Bots.

Rupkatha Journal is inviting submissions of AI literature following the instructions below:

In 1938, a group of British expatriates led by Albert Stephen Gispert, known as G or "our father G," founded the Hash House Harriers (H3) in Kuala Lumpur.  Other than during WW II, the group has been in continuous existence for almost eighty years; the original Kuala Lumpur group, Mother Hash, still exists. The hash house harriers, "a drinking club with a running problem," is a unique blend of athleticism, sociability, and hedonism.  Hashing has a rich and diverse history spanning the globe, and this anthology seeks to capture its impact on global culture.
