A geological timescale provides a way of thinking about power relations between human beings and all kinds of geological forces. Since Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer proposed the term of the Anthropocene, the concept of the age of the Anthropocene brought out the environmental concern. This term evidently intends to mean "the human epoch" because the human force has become one of the dominant geophysical forces. It is believed that this new epoch began in the later 18th Century when the global effects of human activities have become clearly noticeable. That is, the age of the Anthropocene comes along with globalization.

This collection will consider relationships between performances and archives, and the impact of race, gender, sexuality, and class on how performance is documented. It will ask what is remembered and forgotten by theatre archives, how archives supplement and occasionally supplant memories of performances, and how those memories and omissions carry into later performances. 

 

'Dance of the Northern Renaissance' - a Journal of the Northern Renaissance special issue

Journal of the Northern Renaissance
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 19, 2021

JNR invites proposals for a special issue, edited by Lynsey McCulloch and Emily Winerock, on ‘Dance of the Northern Renaissance’. Dance was a key cultural practice of the early modern period: it was integral to theatrical representation; it was a significant element of court ritual; and it fulfilled an important social function. But how might we characterise the particular dance practices of Northern Europe? French, Spanish and Italian traditions have dominated histories of Renaissance dance. However, more recent accounts have challenged the conflation of North and South in discussions of early European dance, drawing attention to the myriad regional and national variations at work.

Our cultural exercises and transactions have a symbiotic relationship with the past. The traces of our past determine the essence of the present and these traces manifest as memories. This fluid and liminal nature of memories lends an element of elasticity while crafting personal and collective identities, nationhood, history, body, imagination, communities, erasure and approval of knowledge systems and much more. The process of recollecting, recalling, remembering, retrieving, registering, witnessing, repressing, recording, forming, forgetting memories frees them from all forms of spatial and temporal boundaries and makes them powerful agents of disruption and change.

Mental health related challenges among graduate students have long been known as a serious concern across universities throughout the world. Findings from a recent survey of graduate students across numerous fields of study, countries, and institutions suggest that graduate students are over six times more likely to experience anxiety and depression than the general population (Evans et. al 2018). Women, LGBTQ students and graduate students from other, minoritized, underrepresented groups in universities are even more vulnerable to such issues.

Graduate students who come to NeMLA get professionalization practice at writing and delivering conference papers. After the show is over, what becomes of those rich documents and the feedback you received on your work?

This GSC-sponsored roundtable aims to give practical advice to graduate students and others, particularly early career and precariously employed professionals, regarding strategies for developing your recently delivered paper into a publishable manuscript. We particularly encourage proposals that cover a variety of publishing opportunities, including small presses and open access journals. Possible discussion points include:

Choosing the right publication to target

The shifting landscape of academia has necessitated that leadership approaches and leadership training also be adapted to remain abreast with the rapid changes taking place in the world. While the impact of neoliberal trends in the university would lead one to believe in the primacy of maximum self-actualization to improve one’s prospects in a hypercompetitive market, there also exists a strong counter-ideological movement that aims to develop servant-leaders who would pave the way for ethical decision making, public-oriented activity, and participatory management.
