Studies in Testimony
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2017

The peer-reviewed, online and open access journal Studies in Testimony is now accepting submissions for its first issue.

Subject areas could include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • Holocaust testimony

  • Testimony in the digital age

  • Post-colonial testimony

  • Hybrid forms of testimony

Profane Shakespeare

Perfection, Pollution, and the Truth of Performance

“But no perfection is so absolute,

That some impurity doth not pollute”

Rape of Lucrece, l. 899

 

For its 33rd issue (Spring 2018), the online peer-reviewed journal Etudes Epistémè (www.episteme.revues.org) seeks articles examining Shakespeare’s treatment of the notions of perfection (or “purity”) and pollution (or “impurity”), understood not only along traditional moral and religious lines, but also, more “profanely”, in aesthetic and hermeneutic terms.

Inciting Revolutionary Change

Micah White, one of Occupy Wall Street's founding members, suggests via his 2016 book The End of Protest: A New Playbook for Revolution:

"Is protest broken? Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump in the upcoming US presidential election. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance."

Relationalities

Free-Exchange: University of Calgary Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference, 10-12 March 2017

In Locations of Culture, Homi K. Bhabha suggests that the “interstitial passage between fixed identifications” permits a hybridized identity which may allow “difference without an assumed or imposed hierarchy” (4). Though Bhabha’s argument is largely post-colonial, the examination of the interstitial – of the relationality between things – brings up considerations of difference and hybridization for any number of cultural issues or artefacts. What are the outcomes, in consideration of X/Y, if we shift focus off of X or Y and onto the slash in-between?

The Association of Adaptation Studies 12th Annual Conference, De Montfort University, Leicester, 18-19 September, 2017

‘Returns’

 

The Association of Adaptation Studies Annual Conference will return to its roots in the Centre for Adaptations, De Montfort University, Leicester, where it hosted the Association’s inaugural conference. The focus will be on ‘returns’ and, as Linda Hutcheon has argued, ‘return’ does not necessarily mean ‘regression’. Topics are invited on all aspects of adaptations and those with an emphasis on homecomings, returns, remakes and re-fashioning will be especially welcome.
