Concepts of Identity

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 4:27pm
Saint Bonaventure University English Department

On November 15-16, the English Department at St. Bonaventure University will hold a graduate conference concerned with concepts of identity. The various understandings of identity held by critics, theorists, readers, and writers are embedded in the history of literature and guide its trajectory. Concepts of identity also impact the ways individuals think about selfhood and inform scholarship on critical thinking, composition, and rhetoric. This conference seeks to draw upon a wealth of perspectives from graduate students engaged in the humanities — especially English language and literature and Composition/Rhetoric. We will also consider exceptional submissions from undergraduates as well as students working outside of the aforementioned areas.

Embodied Affect in Cinema and Media; Society for Cinema and Media Studies Annual Conference, March 2014

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 2:44pm
Heather Collette-VanDeraa, Mila Zuo, UCLA School of Theater Film and Television

This panel seeks a diverse range of papers that address the significance of affect and embodied sensation in both representation and "reception" of film and media. Many scholars have contended that we engage film with our entire body and with all our sensory faculties (ie; Vivian Sobchack, Anne Rutherford, Laura Marks). Various theoretical approaches, including affect theory, phenomenology, feminist theory, critical race theory and embodiment studies, have demonstrated the ways in which affect is mobilized to both mark and resolve differences. As such, we seek papers that consider how embodied affect mediates the social and cultural meanings situated at the cinematic intersections of embodied difference.

Staging the New Woman: Bernard Shaw, Suffrage, and Theatre as Activism

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 2:15pm
Ellen Dolgin/NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)

Sarah Grand's essays on the woman question published in the North American Review in 1894 coined the phrase 'new woman': Shaw created a series of characters and 'unwomanly' women. Actress/activists like Elizabeth Robins and Cicely Hamilton worked with Shaw and wrote their own feminist plays. This panel will examine the audience impact of these plays. 250 word abstracts to:

Global Shaw (Roundtable) 250 word- abstracts due 9/30

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 2:08pm
Ellen Dolgin/NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)

Global Shaw

This roundtable celebrates the diversity of Shaw's plays. Through his iconoclastic stances on issues like war, gender and class inequality, and income distribution, Shaw and his works have garnered international attention for over a century. His talky but humorous dialogue inverts social mores to focus on human rights that transcend borders. Participants can consider particular plays, Shavian characters, or suggest why Shaw is a global figure whose works engender fresh interpretations. 250 word abstracts to: ellen.dolgin@dc.edu
