CFP: Modern Interpretations of Antigone (11/1/05; collection)

Friday, September 30, 2005 - 4:31pm
Spring, Sarah C

Antigone's Transformation: Modern Interpretations of the Classic Figure

Antigone is a figure of fascination. She has captured the attention of great
critical minds such as Hegel, Heidegger, Irigaray, and Butler; playwrights
continue to offer new ways of interpreting her actions. Why the continued
interest in Antigone's story? What are we to make of the newer, more modern
translations of Sophocles's original? How are we to interact with the mass
of critical scholarship written about Antigone?

amy smith

Call for papers: Crossings: A Counter-Disciplinary Journal
Issue # 9: The "Work" of Art
DEADLINE: December 1, 2005

The ninth issue of Crossings aims at addressing the ambiguous
relationship between the aesthetic and the ethical. The binary between
ethicism (the notion of art as a guide to morality) and aestheticism
(the notion that art and morality are autonomous spheres) has
historically framed the thinking about art and ethics, but what is at
stake in limiting our thinking to this framework? We invite people to
think beyond and across this gulf and to imagine other possibilities
of art's power.
