"Urban Intercessions: The City as Limit Politics." The dossier will
focus on how we could imagine the effects and conditions of violence or

Criminal Imaginaries: Transnational Capital and Moral Economies

Description:

The notion of criminality calls to mind the state apparatuses required to
control or eradicate such activities and the felons who perpetuate them.
As such, discussions of the criminal figure imbricate discourses of the
nation and its institutions. This seminar will look at who or what the
nation-state criminalizes, and the relations of "criminals" to
transnational capital.

CFP: Shakespeare and Islam (journal issue)

Scholars have long associated Shakespeare with the wider world beyond early
modern England's shores, notably Europe of course and, in the wake of New
Historicism, the Americas. One of the most interesting recent developments
in early modern studies, however, has been the recognition that writers
looked towards the East as well as westwards - to the Islamic world, and the
Ottoman Empire in particular.

Europe, 1500-1800"

An Interdisciplinary Conference Sponsored by
the Early Modern Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara

March 9-10. 2007

What were early modern publics? How were they formed? What needs did
they serve for those who participated in them? And how did they
relate to the emergence of a cultural formation that we recognize as
distinctly early modern? These are among the questions we seek to
address in this conference.
