CALL FOR PAPERS
Performative events such as theatre plays, dance works or films are core elements of our culture and one of the most open and fruitful areas of artistic innovation. These events involve the presentation and representation of human bodies, which have a great impact on how experience is expressed. This conference will focus on subjectivity as a key aspect of contemporary culture from the point of view of the performing arts. We especially invite contributions that focus on the analysis of specific works of drama, music, dance, performance art, opera or cinema. Main areas of interest are:
The limits of subjectivity and its expressions.
Understanding, interpretation and aesthetic experience.
Contribution of the neurosciences and other scientific approaches.
Identity and subjectivity in performances.
Relationships between texts and performances.
The impact of new technologies.
Papers should be 30 minutes long. The languages of the conference are Spanish and English.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 500 words and should be sent as an e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st May 2008. Please make sure that you include your name, institution, mailing address, e-mail, and contact phone number. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified in July 2008.
