CFP: antiTHESIS Volume 21 – "Futures"

updated: 
Wednesday, August 4, 2010 - 1:57am
School of Culture & Communications, University of Melbourne

It has become increasingly difficult to conceive of our culture as following a dialectical progression from a shared past into a collective future, whether utopian or dystopian. We find ourselves instead at a point at which "The Future," a key concept in all branches of Western thought, creativity and experience, is replaced by myriad "Futures" of immediate relevance and consequence. How is our relationship to the future changing, and how do we actualise these potential futures?

The editors of antiTHESIS are seeking papers exploring the concept of futures to be published in Volume 21 of the journal. Graduate students and researchers from all disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences are invited to submit.

INTERDISCIPLINARY NINETEENTH-CENTURY STUDIES


SPEAKING NATURE

How did the nineteenth century conceive, construct, and represent the physical world? In what ways did nature as an ideology and/or material reality shape the nineteenth century? How did the nineteenth century understand the relation of human beings to nature?

The 2011 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference invites proposals that investigate any aspect of this topic from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature, History, Science, Art History, Environmental Studies, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Music, Economics, and Theology.

The Global and the Intimate - SCMS panel proposal, March 2011, New Orleans

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 1:34pm
SCMS

With a focus on the transnational marginalized subject, this panel seeks to discuss various forms of performances where the subject emerges in its global entanglement. How do we grasp the idea of social, economic and political facets of global relations through the intimate experience of individual bodies-- particularly those of women and labor? How do we grasp "the intimate" (a set of relations, kinship, sexuality, corporeality, internal thought, speech, emotions, affect) through systems connected to global forces and like trade, profit; law, citizenship, and migration; cultural exchange, social movement, tourism?

The 2011 Festival of Original Theatre conference sponsored by the Graduate Centre for the Study of Drama at the University of Toronto will focus its discussion and praxis entirely on the field of Post-Colonial theatre. The 2011 F.O.O.T. festival is designed to reflect the multi-cultural diversity of the city we inhabit, and to encourage an integrative approach between the theoretical and practical. The festival intends to promote and discuss contemporary trends in the emerging field of post-colonial performance studies as it relates to contentious issues ever-present in various cultural/multi-racial communities (such as race, marginality, migration, agency and hegemony).

Theatricality and Performance in Victorian Literature and Culture

updated: 
Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 6:34am
The Victorian Network

The fourth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Dr. Beth Palmer (University of Surrey), will explore the various ways in which the Victorians related to concepts of performance and theatricality. The theatre held a central place in the Victorian imagination. Nineteenth-century investments in theatrical culture, as well as in theatrical modes of marketing and consuming literature, reflect in particularly interesting ways on the diverse performances – of class, gender, racial and national identities etc. – which shaped Victorian everyday life. We are therefore inviting submissions of no more than 7000 words investigating any aspect of this theme. A prize of £50, which we reserve the right to withhold, will be awarded for the best paper submitted.

CFP: Hemingway's Short Fiction, Louisville Conference 2011

updated: 
Monday, August 2, 2010 - 12:04am
Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900

While Hemingway's fiction remains a focus for many critics, not every piece of fiction Hemingway wrote engenders ample criticism. Susan Beegel, in Hemingway's Neglected Short Fiction: New Perspectives, outlines a few ways in which certain short works of Hemingway continue to be the subject of criticism ranging from sentence-length dismissals scattered throughout book length studies to full-length essays lacking meaningful contributions to the work's scholarly cache. Beegel's explanation of neglected short fiction including works featured in essays which have lacked critical stature is the starting point for this panel proposal.

Postfeminist Postmortems? Gender, Sexualities and Multiple Modernities (Annual Conference of the Department of English, Delhi Un

updated: 
Saturday, July 31, 2010 - 2:11pm
Baidik Bhattacharya, Department of English, University of Delhi

Feminisms and modernities have had a long and interlocked history. Now that we are, arguably, in a post-feminist, post-modern era, is it a fitting moment to stop and take stock of this critical encounter?
This provocation emerges out of a particular trajectory of debates, controversies and confrontations in gender studies over the past two decades. Judith Butler's Gender Trouble (1990) destabilised understandings of these interlocked categories about two decades after feminism emerged as a serious tool of critical inquiry. In 1990, also, Gayatri Spivak in The Postcolonial Critic re-located critical feminisms outside the Anglophone world.

"Imagining Iberia" - ASECS - 17-20 March 2011 - Vancouver BC - deadline 9/1/10

updated: 
Saturday, July 31, 2010 - 11:52am
Judith Broome

This panel will explore the ways Spain and Portugal were "imagined" in Britain, the Americas, the Caribbean, or other cultures from which the Iberian peninsula was geographically isolated. Papers may approach the topic from a variety of disciplines, calling on resources such as travel narratives and journals by individuals, accounts in periodicals, or commentary on law, religion, or medicine. The working question is, how was Iberia imagined outside the peninsula?

250-word abstracts by 9/01/10. Electronic submissions preferred to broomej1@wpunj.edu .

Narrative and Medicine Conference 13-14 Sept 2010 Portugal FL - University Lisbon

updated: 
Saturday, July 31, 2010 - 7:46am
ULICES - University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies

The concept of Narrative and Medicine stems from the belief that narrative awareness is crucial for the improvement of medicine practices and complementary to evidence-based methods. Attention to the patients' body language and storytelling requires empathy and time, two things that are lacking in health systems that may offer hospitals but not always hospitality. Doctors and healthcare professionals will benefit from learning how to frame and adapt their narratives, namely in breaking the news of disease and in prescribing treatment.
