After organizing several Staging America conferences bearing exclusively on United States issues, we now favor a trans-American North/South perspective. We also intend to engage in interdisciplinary exchanges, welcoming specialists of history, anthropology, literature, image semiotics cinema, theater, among others. Indeed, the notion of “staging” at the origin of our discussions is not limited to drama studies and considers any mode of representation using dramatization methods in the broad sense of the word.

The next conference, which will be hosted at the Université Toulouse-Jean Jaurès, on March 17-18, 2022, will question the notion of “rebellion” and its polysemy in the American context involving notions of “insurrection”, “upheaval”, “dissidence”, “disobedience”, “insubordination”, and even “revolution”. We will define the forces involved, but also the forms taken by these struggles, crises, resistances, as well as their stakes, in the fields of history, societies, and fiction. It is also important, while considering the violence these movements generate, to take into account one of its main drives: desire (for freedom, for protest, for agency, for power, for justice).

Full call for papers available here.
