CFP: Gothic Animals: Uncanny Otherness and the Animal With-Out

The boundary between the animal and the human has long been unstable, especially since the Victorian period. Where the boundary is drawn between human and animal is itself an expression of political power and dominance, and the ‘animal’ can at once express the deepest fears and greatest aspirations of a society (Victorian Animal Dreams, 4).

The animal, like the ghost or good or evil spirit with which it is often associated, has been a manifestation of the uncanny (Timothy Clark, 185).

Dismantling Inequality through Dialogues of Conscience

Humanity, wildlife and the environment have all been negatively impacted by polarizing inequalities. Despite this, courageous individuals and resistance movements have and continue to expose these inequalities and enact change in the face of tremendous opposition. We are interested in submissions that explore gender, racial, sexual, religious, socio-economic and environmental inequalities represented in literature, film as well as other mediums and the changes that have occurred through dialogues inside and outside of the classroom about various forms of inequality.

Topics of interest may include but are not limited to:

Call for Abstracts on “New Directions on Improvisation”

 

For the 2018 Comparative Drama Conference, there will be a sub-theme of improv running through the three days. On Thursday night we will be attending an improv performance at SAK Comedy Lab. On Saturday afternoon there will be a plenary dedicated to improv. To round out the conference, we invite papers for either a panel (or if we get enough interest a round table) on new directions in improv, as we look to consider how improv pushes boundaries within performance, the process of dramatic creation, and the text.

 

Some possible topics to consider (but definitely not limited to):

The Condition of Contradiction: Implications for Globalization, Identity & Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 9:49am
Saint Louis University, Madrid Spain
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 8, 2018

Call for Papers: The advent of neoliberalism after the 1970s in “core” western economies has unleashed a relatively deregulated and more palpably globalized economy. The results have been convulsive in the socio-economic concomitants and contradictions that have followed. They include: intensified, bare-knuckled class striation alongside tendencies toward intensified tolerance and mixing; finance that moves more readily across borders than (many) flesh-and-blood people; cosmopolitanism alongside re-invigorated identity essentialism; and places and identities stuck between global forces and renewed assertions of localism. And all of it subject to 24-hour globalized, new media display.
