Modernism, Gender, & Fin de Siecle Theatre - MSA Montreal (November 2009)

Wednesday, April 22, 2009 - 7:45pm
Stephanie Byttebier

Recently, Toril Moi has argued for a rehabilitation of Ibsen as a modernist dramatist and described a number of key features of his version of modernism: his embrace of theatre as an art form, his critique of theatricality, his foregrounding of a meta-theatrical skepticism, and his preoccupation with the key social issue of the position of women in society (Henrik Ibsen and the Birth of Modernism). This panel will seek to extend Moi's claims by asking if we can identify an "other," early or "original" modernism – one somewhat different from what Moi, borrowing from Frederic Jameson, calls the post-WWII "Ideology of Modernism" - in the works of various fin de siècle dramatists staging rebellious/fallen/deviant women.

"Robin Hood: Media Creature," 22-25 October 2009

Wednesday, April 22, 2009 - 6:01pm
International Association for Robin Hood Studies - University of Rochester, USA

This conference solicits contributions to our understanding of the perennial outlaw hero, and the traditions surrounding his stories, from as wide a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives as possible. The conference requests proposals that expand our knowledge of medieval and early modern historical studies, literary criticism, folklore, musicology and music practice, children's literature, cultural studies, anthropology, film and media studies, performance art and oral recitations, art history, literary history and theory, and philosophy. While our historical understanding of Robin Hood inevitably depends on literary and archival records, even these cultural memories have been shaped by the media that contain them.

CPRACSIS Humanities Conference June 27 - 28

The conference, "Rethinking Humanities" attempts to interrogate how the future of humanities can be traced and interpreted from various academic and philosophical quarters, and the ways in which interdisciplinary endeavours in all realms of knowledge respond to this effort. It is widely accepted that Humanities in the academia has encountered unusually critical challenges in the last few decades. The question of how these challenges are transmitted through the corpus and the methodological and canonical framework of traditional Humanities will be pivotal in the making of the conference. The conference attempts in a broad manner to address the following issues:
