IASECS at ASECS in Toronto, 2024 Dues, Calls for Papers

We are preparing for our meeting at the ASECS annual meeting in Toronto, April 4-6

  • Meeting information, including registration and hotel, can be found on the Annual Meeting page. You can find the detailed program draft for the meeting on the Preliminary Schedule.

On Friday, April 5 we will hold our annual IASECS business meeting. Time and place TBA. We have also made dinner reservations for Friday night at 8pm at Baro. We will send out more information about both very soon.

Also, it is time to pay your 2024 IASECS dues. Dues are $20 and run with the calendar year. You can pay them via Paypal from our website https://iasecs.org, clicking the “Donate” button. Adding a bit extra will cover the Paypal processing fee. Thanks!

Lastly, two CFPs passed along by our members:

From Elena Deanda: CFP for ECASECS next fall in Lancaster, PA https://ecasecs2024conference.wordpress.com/

From Oscar Ruiz Hernández: a CFP for a special issue of the academic journal Teatro: Revista de Estudios Escénicos under the executive direction of Dr. Luis González (Connecticut College), as I am editing this special issue.

Mi nombre es Óscar Ruiz Hernández, llevo trabajando en la Universidad de Massachusetts Lowell como Lector Visitante de Español durante los últimos tres años. Mi actividad académica y profesional está enfocada en el área de teatro español de los siglos XVIII y XIX y, como tal, estoy ejerciendo en este momento como miembro del comité ejecutivo del Foro sobre España e Iberia en los Siglos XVIII y XIX de la MLA (Modern Language Association), y como Miembro General del comité ejecutivo de la Sociedad Ibero-Americana para los Estudios del Siglo XVIII (IASECS).

Hace unos meses llegué a un acuerdo con Teatro: Revista de Estudios Escénicos bajo la dirección ejecutiva del Dr. Luis González (Connecticut College) para encargarme de la edición de un volumen especial de la revista (https://digitalcommons.conncoll.edu/teatro/about.html). Con este fin, he terminado recientemente de elaborar la siguiente convocatoria de estudios que formen parte de este número especial de la revista:

Más allá del canon: Teatro de la Península Ibérica e Hispanoamérica al margen de los estudios centrales académicos. Teatro periférico y de la periferia. Teatro fuera de las grandes capitales. La vida de actores y actrices invisibles. Dramaturgos poco valorados, olvidados o desconocidos. Autores y actores de etnias o comunidades culturales diversas. Obras censuradas por su temática o el momento histórico en el que surgieron. Obras que por su contenido, estructura o modo de representación no se consideren dentro del canon literario (teatro educativo en escuelas, teatro musical, teatro breve, microteatro, espectáculos callejeros, etc.).

Ahora mismo, no hay ninguna restricción geográfica o temporal en el periodo de la historia literaria (desde la Edad Media hasta la actualidad), siempre y cuando trate sobre teatro relacionado con la cultura hispana. Teniendo en cuenta los temas tratados para el volumen que edito y lo que ha publicado hasta el momento, no tengo ninguna duda de la credibilidad y calidad que su colaboración aportaría a la revista. Es por ello que me gustaría invitarle a que se una al proyecto escribiendo un ensayo que aborde uno de los temas propuestos más arriba.

Por el momento sirva como adelanto que estoy pensando en dos fechas importantes en el proceso de la elaboración del número especial de la revista:

1) Entrega de un párrafo corto (300 palabras) describiendo un borrador del contenido del artículo para el último día de abril.

2) Entrega del artículo completo (6000-10000 palabras, en español o inglés, formato MLA) para el último día de junio

La publicación del número especial se llevará a cabo si es posible en el semestre de otoño de 2024.

Le agradecería mucho se comunique conmigo en los próximos días para confirmar su interés o no, o incluso para sugerir el nombre de otro/s investigador/es que pudieran escribir un artículo al respecto. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en contactarme.

Cordialmente,

Dr. Óscar Ruiz Hernández (oscar_ruizhernandez@uml.edu)

CFP: Magical Eighteenth-Century Workshop

The Center for Eighteenth-Century-Studies has hosted a Spring Workshop every year (excepting 2020) since 2002. The typical format consists of intense discussion of pre-circulated papers and an occasional lecture, interspersed with ample opportunities for socializing and refreshment. We typically cover travel costs for all participants, who are selected by an interdisciplinary committee of scholars. It is a really great, interdisciplinary, collegial conference, and I would love to work on increasing the presence of hispanists!

Amendments to the IASECS Constitution approved (see attached) : Voted to accept amendments to the IASECS Constitution to allow for virtual attendance if future ASECS meetings are held virtually.

Creation of an IASECS Endowed Fund within ASECS:

Approved making a deposit from IASECS account of $4,000 to create an IASECS endowed fund. This first deposit will be made in the 2024 ASECS fiscal year which begins July 1, 2024. It is anticipated that fund will begin generating approximately $400 a year, beginning in 2027.

This fund will require three years before funds can be disbursed. In the interim, we will continue gathering yearly dues and donations to award the essay prize and travel grants.

Kathleen Fueger reported that an anonymous donor has pledged a $1000 matching donation. We will announce this challenge after the fund has been established and begin our first fundraising campaign. Donations to the endowed fund will be tax deductible (which is not the case for current donations to IASECS).

Brainstorming for Toronto

Some preliminary ideas included the following. These will be finalized at our virtual retreat in April

a. Black Legend: Cathy and Karen
b. Triangular collaborations: African, Indigenous, and European Knowledge in the Americas.
c. Channeling the Ancients: Normative representations of classical sexualities in Enlightenment Literature (“channeling” inspired by the etymology of Toronto [Mohawk “Tkoronto” meaning channel between lakes Simcoe and Couchiching).

IASECS Virtual Retreat

IASECS is planning a virtual retreat for next Wednesday, April 26, at 5pm EDT. Check your email for the Zoom link. If you don’t receive it and would like to join us, please email or message Betsy and she’ll send the link.
