Transformation has long been discussed in studies of early modern English drama. From an interest in Ovidian transformation to the way cross-dressed actors were feared to be “transformed” into effeminate men by performing the roles of women, scholars have looked at specific ways in which transformation incited fear, awe, and excitement in the playhouse. Next Fall, the Folger Shakespeare Library is presenting a symposium, “Early Modern Theatre and Conversion,” that explores issues of how religious “transformation” is represented on stage, as well as how theatre is able to “convert” religious conversion.

CFP for NeMLA 2017, Baltimore  March 23rd-26th: The first-year writing seminar is a course that fulfills many goals of transitioning students to college-level writing, reading, and discussion. It is one of the first places that students grapple with those “structures of feeling” that gather around social identity and difference. This panel seeks papers that explore pedagogical approaches to affect and social identity in the writing classroom. What approaches help students struggle to write across the gap between feelings, social identity, and analysis? What pedagogies help create spaces of diversity for both feelings and minority identities in the first-year classroom?

Popular rhetoric about athletics consistently emphasizes corporeal mastery and bodily perfection.  Always exhibiting physical and mental toughness, athletes train ceaselessly to reach the pinnacle of sporting accomplishment: taking things to the next level.  In fact, there is a good argument to be made that athletic excellence requires superhuman skill, for it is only when athletes devote 110% of themselves to their sports that victory can be achieved.

“When you are in the middle of a story it isn’t a story at all, but only a confusion; a dark roaring, a blindness, a wreckage of shattered glass and splintered wood; like a house in a whirlwind, or else a boat crushed by the icebergs or swept over the rapids, and all aboard powerless to stop it.”
– Margaret Atwood

“Here am I and there is my body dancing on glass”

NATIONAL UNDERGRADUATE BODY IMAGE CONFERENCE

OCTOBER 26-27, 2016

 

The human body is both a site of resistance and conformity for constructed societal standards of beauty.  Some believe beauty is stable and can be physically measured, while others consider beauty to be a fluctuating manifestation of a cultural ideal.

The Cabrini University Department of English and Gender and Body Studies Program invites students and faculty to consider questions about what and who defines body image, as well as the significance of body image theoretically and historically understood.

Possible topics could address, but are not limited to, the following areas:
