The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.

ABOUT CONFERENCE: 22-23 April 2021, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

Saturday, May 1, 2021

Examining time and space as anything but concrete and singular, Elizabeth Grosz states that they “are in some sense correlated with representations of the subject” (99). Such a conception associates spatio-temporal location with subjectivity, and to some extent, embodiment and corporeality. Space becomes about more than physical conceptualizations—such as land, location, or locality, or more specifically Earth, land, nation, city, or home—and comes to include broader, more metaphorical, notions such as the space within body and mind, as well as narrative space.

Food and Culture in Northeast India: The Culinary Tradition

Food, more than a material substance is also a cultural expression handed down from generations to generations. In most societies, the older people pass on their knowledge of food and what constitutes “healthy or good” food to their new members. In this sense, the idea of food also marks a society’s relation with the larger environment- human and biotic. But, food also defines what is “within” from what is “without,” so that culinary skills, inherited through years of practice could be transferred to those who make up the members of a legitimate community.

Many of the finest poets in America and abroad have been exposing the destructive relationships between humans and nature and reimagining our place on the planet to help us avoid catastrophe. As environmental writer John Nichols once stated, "To save the world, first we must love it.” This virtual (online) session on ecopoetics aims to inspire and cultivate such a love. We particularly welcome scholars and poets who explore the natural world as a text and the literary achievement of great nature writers as exemplary readers. Works by Adrienne Rich, Gary Snyder, Joy Harjo, Mary Oliver, W. S. Merwin, and Pablo Neruda, including original poems or translations, such as Merwin’s translations of Jean Follain, are encouraged.

During the Jim Crow era, racial crossing in the United States was officially regulated through legal, economic, religious, and socio-cultural means. When African Americans and other people of color strategically chose to pass, they undermined, often at great risk to themselves, white hegemony and the fantasy of a definitively either-or color line. Following Brown vs. Board of Education and the Civil Rights accomplishments of the 1960s, racial crossing‚ including disguise and transformation, cross-racial interaction, relationships, and friendships‚ continued to be prevalent as it also manifested in new, productive, and sometimes strange forms. For example, Loving v.
