Knowledge Crossing Borders, co-sponsored by West Chester University of Pennsylvania and Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 31 JANUARY: Knowledge Crossing Borders: Opportunities and Challenges in Regional, Transnational and Global Collaboratives. In increasingly globalized and technologically-driven societies, geographical and intellectual borders are reconstructed and reconfigured to create opportunities and challenges for countries, for disciplines, and for institutions. Political, economic, and sociocultural issues condition the production, dissemination, and ownership of knowledge. This interdisciplinary conference examines how knowledge transactions across borders create these challenges and opportunities in research, pedagogical, and administrative acts in higher education.

"GENERATING BODIES: DISCURSIVE SEXED PRODUCTIONS"

updated: 
Thursday, January 21, 2010 - 10:56am
Body and Textuality Research Group, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain)

In the 21st century, the body is all but a certainty, and raises endless questions.
How do we live in the body that we are / we have? How does it represent us, and to what extent? How does it become readable, understandable? What does it tell? What can it say and what can't it say? Who or what does it say from? How can I get involved in what the body I am /I have says or represents ? Does my body belong to me or do I belong to it? Is this a relationship of belonging, or rather of participation without belonging? Which is the power of my body? What are the categories that hide or reveal it? What is the body?

She-Wolf: Female Werewolves, Shapeshifters and Other Horrors

updated: 
Thursday, January 21, 2010 - 8:20am
University of Manchester UK

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Peter Hutchings (University of Northumbria, UK)

The figure of the werewolf has haunted art, literature and culture for millennia. While not as common as their male counterparts, female werewolves appear in a variety of texts, of different genres and different cultures. From transcripts of witchcraft trials to Buffy, the female werewolf and her shapeshifting sisters continue to challenge, excite and entertain.

Conference Dates: 9 - 10 September 2010

This conference will explore representations and cultural meanings of female werewolves and other female shapeshifters, and the perennial fascination of these creatures. Papers are sought from researchers in all disciplines.

Proposals are sought for a forthcoming symposium to be held at the University of Glamorgan on the BBC Wales programme Torchwood (2006- ).Whilst academic work has examined Torchwood's parent show Doctor Who in both its classic (pre-2005) and contemporary forms, less attention has focused on Torchwood. This one-day event seeks to redress this balance, considering the show from a media and cultural studies perspective.

Performance After Identity: The Neo-Political Subject

A Book Proposal by Matthew Causey and Fintan Walsh

Whence catastrophic pronouncements of the sort: only a homosexual can 'understand' what a homosexual is, only an Arab can understand what an Arab is, and so forth. If, as we believe, only truths (thought) allow man to be distinguished from the human animal that underlies him, it is no exaggeration to say that such minoritarian pronouncements are genuinely barbaric.
