How do we evaluate early medieval visual and material cultures? How do we 'see', via art and artefacts, the multivalent voices of the Anglo-Saxon world?

This interdisciplinary postgraduate conference aims to explore and interpret the contribution made by Anglo-Saxon artwork and material objects to the various cultural discourses of the era ? involving ideas
about family, gender, religion and belief, nationhood and identity. It also seeks to address the issue of how the multi-disciplinary voices of researchers in Anglo-Saxon studies can speak effectively to each other.

[Update] Performance and Performativity

Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 5:25pm
English Graduate Student Society (EGSS) Universite de Montreal

The seventh annual Université de Montréal English graduate conference seeks to examine the constructed nature of human life and thus invites 250-300 words abstract for papers dealing with the notions of performance and performativity in literature and the arts. Although performance was traditionally associated with theatre and the interpretation of a written text by actors, the idea of performance also applies to everyday life, to the behaviour individuals are obligated to adopt in order to function in society. Every face-to-face encounter becomes a performance especially if we think of performativity as the internalization of a script.
