"The Aural Archive"

ACLA annual convention, New Orleans, April 1-4, 2010

Proposals due: Nov. 13, 2009

This seminar aims to draw out several theoretical and methodological questions lurking behind recent work in media studies, performance studies, musicology, and literary studies: If the aural realm is ephemeral (as is often said), how does it factor into the historical record? When you listen to your archive, what and how do you hear? And how do you theorize the silences and noises in the archival grain?

1st Global Conference

Problems of Democracy

Friday 30th April – Sunday 2nd May 2010

Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Papers

The opening decade of the 21st century sees democracy entrenched as the
ideal to which all should aspire who do not already enjoy the best of
all possible political systems. But to assert that alternatives to
democracy are (even) worse is hardly to give a positive argument in its
favour: Plato's objection, that the "ship of state" requires expertise
to steer it that "the many" do not possess surely deserves a better
answer. But what? And is an answer to be found in "democracy itself"
(whatever that may be) or in what democracy makes possible?

Voices

"And in my voice most welcome shall you be." As You Like It 2:4.87

San Antonio. Images of the River Walk merge with the memories of its most famous location, the Alamo. Remember it, the voices from the past call out, and we do.

Those voices on opposing sides of its walls, representing Santa Anna and Sam Houston, spoke for two distinctly diverse cultures. And within those cultures were voices and texts that influenced the actions during that struggle – significant cultural markers of time, place, and being.
