The Polish open-access journal Didaskalia (https://didaskalia.pl/en) invites submissions that reflect on the actual and potential power of disability to transform performing arts, and theatre and performance studies. We wish to approach this issue from the perspective that sees disability as a generative artistic force and a critical lens. As a creative, academic, and cognitive category, disability has been changing the face of theatre, dance, music, and performance art.

This panel will focus on the short fiction of Jorge Luis Borges and Affect Theory broadly construed. Papers analyzing any short story from Borges' many collections (e.g., Ficciones, The Book of Sand, Shakespeare's Memory etc.) along with any affect-focused reading are welcome. With analyses of the often enigmatic, and occasionally cryptic, atmospheres of Borges’ fiction, the aim of this panel is to add to (perhaps even shift!) discourses on the conceptualization of affect.
Where is the spring that rose where St. Alban’s blood fell? Who cares for Cuddy Ducks? Can we see Enoch and Elijah? When the Virgin fell in labour, was Romani St. Sarah at her side? How did St. Sebastian become a gay icon? Who were the Twin Saints, the Three Pure Ones, the Four Friends and the Five Major Prophets? What goes into a Dumb Cake for St. Agnes’ Eve? Does a wet St. Swithun’s day really foretell forty days of rain? Do girls still appeal to St. Andrew of the fishermen for a good catch in marriage? Can we still hear Old Clem at the hammer and the thunders of St. Barbara? Whether you weave a cross of reeds for Lá Féile Bríde, wear a daff for Dewi Sant, or bear a rose for St. George, come and join our day or we may have to call on St.

DEADLINE March 31, 2023
Public understandings of the liberal arts tend to amount to an introductory curriculum of texts in the humanist tradition. This project seeks funding to host a special session at Modern Language Association’s annual convention in Jan 2024, inviting new research intended to broaden, deepen and restore the origins of liberal arts beyond modern European conceptions to include classical, pre-classical, non- European and global findings on the subject. Beyond introductory curricula, the session attempts to revisit the notion of the liberal arts as training for political, legal and professional leadership, in the words of Isocrates’ Antidosis, the “καλῶν ἐπιτηδευμάτων”/good achievements that would in turn be a cause for celebration.

It is widely known that ideologies of racism, nationalism, and xenophobia are dangerous and spread all over the world. We want to examine these terms as much as possible, from many perspectives and variable aspects: in politics, society, psychology, culture, and many more. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the phenomena of racism, nationalism and xenophobia are represented in artistic practices: in literature, film, theatre or visual arts.
