POLITICS AND PERFORMANCE GRADUATE WORKSHOP

Université de Montréal, Canada

January 19th, 2018

Université de Montréal and PUCRS are now accepting abstracts for the Politics and Performance Graduate Workshop to be held January 19th, 2018, in Montréal, Québec, Canada. The workshop is intended for graduate students and early career scholars.

The idea of human sociality as a realm of actors, lines, stages and audiences is not particularly new. Since Jacques’ famous quote in Shakespeare’s As You Like It – “All the world’s a stage…” – the idea has grown from a baroque theatrical metaphor to a current concern in philosophy, sociology, anthropology, and a number of other areas. As the 20th-century sociologist Erving Goffman put it, “All the world is not, of course, a stage, but the crucial ways in which it isn’t are not easy to specify.” These different ways in which the world is or is not a stage, and in which human life in society is or is not performatively constructed, shaped and enforced, are the theme of this event.

We are seeking contributions on this type of intersection of politics and performance. The theme is construed very broadly, so as to welcome works in social and political philosophy, social and political theory, aesthetics, ethics, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, performing arts and art history. Inter-disciplinary works are also welcomed. Topics might include:

  • norms and performance,
  • the aestheticization of politics,
  • post-democracy,
  • protest and performance,
  • discourse and performance,
  • the performative turn in social sciences,
  • gender performativity,
  • linguistic performance,
  • performance and discourse analysis.

This list is non-exhaustive.

Presentations should have up to 20 minutes and will be followed by up to 15 minutes of discussion. Abstracts of no more than 800 words should be submitted by November 30th via the online form at https://sites.google.com/view/politicsandperformance/submissions. Accepted applicants will be contacted in mid-December by e-mail. Further questions or comments may be sent to politicsandperformance@gmail.com.

This workshop is organized by the Philosophy Departments of Université de Montréal, Canada and the Catholic University of Porto Alegre (PUCRS), Brazil. Selected works will be invited for publication in a special issue of Intuitio, the Graduate Students’ Philosophy Journal at PUCRS.
