Critical Literary Regionalisms
Organizer: Susie DeCoste (Waterloo)
Frank Davey has argued that regionalist ideology tends toward environmental determinism, resulting in certain assumptions about what effects place should have on a person. Within this set of assumptions, any identification with other possible grounds of identity, such as race or gender, is less important. More recently, in Critical Regionalism: Connecting Politics and

Latin American Studies Association 2010 Conference

We are seeking papers for a panel on gender and violence in U.S. Latino literature and popular culture for the 2010 LASA Conference: Crisis, Response and Recovery. More specifically, this panel will address the representations of violence in cultural productions since 911 as a way to rethink the shifting negotiations of gender and nation. We are especially interested in papers that explore violence in cultural productions since the economic crisis. Topics may include, but are not limited to, immigrant-related violence, gang violence, war, border violence and emotional violence in contemporary cultural productions. Some of the papers in this panel will explore the recent works of writers such as Ana Castillo and Daniel Alarcón.

PSi 16, Performing Publics, will take place in Toronto as part of a collaboration between York University's Faculty of Fine Arts and the Ontario College of Art & Design. The conference will investigate the power of performance to intervene in, reshape, and reinvigorate the public sphere at the beginning of the twenty-first century. We invite proposals that take up notions of "public" in a variety of ways, pointing to the critically generative and fraught aspects of the term as it has been adopted within performance studies.

Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) April 7-11, 2010 Montreal, Quebec

Alongside Realism in the 19th century, which foregrounded a logical and representable image of the world, there ran a trend in literature that emphasized experience at the margins of the logos, including childhood, absurdity, fantasy, trauma, eroticism, and comedy. This panel seeks theoretically and/or historically informed papers that will explore this literature by looking at the role of childhood and what it reveals about subjectivity. Topics might include the role of childhood memory or fantasy in adult subjectivity; questions of gender, genre, eroticism, or empire in relation to childhood.

Shakespeare and the City: The Negotiation of Urban Spaces in Shakespeare's Plays; Deadline: 11/30/2009

updated: 
Friday, September 18, 2009 - 11:17pm
German Shakespeare Association

Shakespeare's plays were conceived and first performed in a political, cultural and economic metropolis, London around 1600, which drew audiences from different social spheres and countries to its theatres. While England was foremost a rural country, London radiated a climate of social change that was negotiated in theatrical presentations of the city, often evoking a non-civilised, barbaric, or utopian other. Our seminar aims at tracing the negotiation of urban spaces on the early modern stage, in contemporary theatrical productions and film adaptations. Which influences did London around 1600 exert on Shakespeare's plays, and in how far can non-English settings of the plays tell us something about early modern notions of these cities and countries?
