“Re-storying” Social Justice: Constructing Coalition at the Intersections of Theory, Community, Positionality, and Practice

"Para-crisis" -- MadLit 2022 English graduate conference

updated: 
Thursday, February 3, 2022 - 9:52am
UW-Madison Department of English
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 25, 2022

Since the introduction of large-scale quarantine and social distancing measures in March 2020, literature conferences have increasingly turned toward examining themes of "emergency" and "crisis." In the midst of this proliferating focus on conditions of catastrophe, however, we might also ask what modes of life, affect, and community formation persist even beyond, alongside, or within crisis. Can we conceive of crisis not as a totalizing event that defines all forms of vitality that exist within its purview, but as a lived environment in which we can discover and facilitate forms of ongoingness that resist the surrounding catastrophes?

We invite proposals that consider different aspects of writing about and teaching Milton in our present working conditions. Topics may include emergent forms of interdisciplinarity; putting Milton in dialogue with a broader range of writers; research grants and other sources of funding for Milton-related scholarship; teaching and writing about Milton in institutions beyond the research university or the four-year college.

Performance, Religion, & Spirituality: Performance Research and Ancient Texts

updated: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2022 - 7:27pm
Performance, Religion, and Spirituality
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

For an upcoming special section, the editors of PRS are seeking research that uses performance as an analytical method to understand the structure, function, use, meaning, or affects of classical religious, philosophical or religious texts. The problem of how to ‘activate’ classical texts for contemporary readers is difficult, and in recent decades, some scholars, artists and religious professionals have turned to making their own live performances responding to classical texts—in a wide variety of forms and settings—as a means of doing so. In this work, they often are forced to make complex decisions that highlight the assumptions, meanings, and consequences embedded in these texts that may not be as visible to the non-performative reader.
