Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.

Current Call: Technologies
Guest Editors: Karen Throsby and Sarah Hodges

*Deadline for Abstracts: April 15*

As forms of knowledge, as practices, and as artefacts, technologies
have reshaped, and continue to reshape, the ways we think, write,
create, and perceive the self, the body and the community. This
special issue of WSQ invites feminist work that considers the concept
of technology, conceived broadly, and explores the multiple
technologiesâ€"whether high-tech or low-tech, futuristic, contemporary,
or historicalâ€"that are influencing us.

CFP: [Gender Studies] Affective Aesthetics: Representations of Emotion

Friday, March 21, 2008 - 7:54pm
Rice University

Æffective Æsthetics: Representation of Emotion

Rice Graduate Symposium, September 26-27, 2008
Rice University, Houston, Texas

Affective representation in both artistic and lived experience is
frequently explained in terms of competing social, political, and
cultural systems that often nullify one another. Compounding the problem
is the tendency for affect to complicate how we think about
representation; it seems that the two are inextricable. Through
investigating representations of affect within a variety of fields, this
conference proposes to find inroads that will bring the competing claims
of various discourses together into productive dialogue.

In Surveiller et punir, Michel Foucault asserted that “dans nos sociétés, les systèmes punitifs sont
à replacer dans une certaine ‘économie politique’ du corps: même s’ils ne font appel à des
châtiments violents ou sanglants, même lorsqu’ils utilisent les méthodes ‘douces’ qui enferment
ou corrigent, c’est bien toujours du corps qu’il s’agitâ€" du corps et de ses forces, de leur utilité et

Since our first two conferences met with such success, The University of
