Panel Title: "Materiality of Performance in Early Drama: Objects, Props, Costumes, Bodies, Space, and More"


Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 2:37pm


How did the nineteenth century conceive, construct, and represent the physical world? In what ways did nature as an ideology and/or material reality shape the nineteenth century? How did the nineteenth century understand the relation of human beings to nature?

The 2011 Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies (INCS) Conference invites proposals that investigate any aspect of this topic from multiple interdisciplinary perspectives, including and/or integrating Literature, History, Science, Art History, Environmental Studies, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology, Music, Economics, and Theology.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

The Global and the Intimate - SCMS panel proposal, March 2011, New Orleans

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 1:34pm

With a focus on the transnational marginalized subject, this panel seeks to discuss various forms of performances where the subject emerges in its global entanglement. How do we grasp the idea of social, economic and political facets of global relations through the intimate experience of individual bodies-- particularly those of women and labor? How do we grasp "the intimate" (a set of relations, kinship, sexuality, corporeality, internal thought, speech, emotions, affect) through systems connected to global forces and like trade, profit; law, citizenship, and migration; cultural exchange, social movement, tourism?

The 2011 F.O.O.T. festival is designed to reflect the multi-cultural diversity of the city we inhabit, and to encourage an integrative approach between the theoretical and practical. The festival intends to promote and discuss contemporary trends in the emerging field of post-colonial performance studies as it relates to contentious issues ever-present in various cultural/multi-racial communities (such as race, marginality, migration, agency and hegemony).

Theatricality and Performance in Victorian Literature and Culture

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 - 6:34am
The Victorian Network

The fourth issue of Victorian Network, guest edited by Dr. Beth Palmer (University of Surrey), will explore the various ways in which the Victorians related to concepts of performance and theatricality. The theatre held a central place in the Victorian imagination. Nineteenth-century investments in theatrical culture, as well as in theatrical modes of marketing and consuming literature, reflect in particularly interesting ways on the diverse performances – of class, gender, racial and national identities etc. – which shaped Victorian everyday life. We are therefore inviting submissions of no more than 7000 words investigating any aspect of this theme. A prize of £50, which we reserve the right to withhold, will be awarded for the best paper submitted.
