>Keynote Speaker: Jill Dolan
>Jill Dolan is the author of four major studies of feminist performance,
>including Presence and Desire: Essays on Gender, Sexuality, and Performance
>and Utopia in Performance: Finding Hope at the Theater. Her next project, a
>critical memoir called From Flannel to Fleece: A Lesbian of a Certain Age,
>chronicles what it has meant to come out as a lesbian feminist and come into
>middle-age under the auspices of the "queer" moment in activist and cultural
>politics. Her blog, "The Feminist Spectator," can be accessed at
>www.feministspectator.blogspot.com.
>
>"Her writings reveal her commitment to healing the theory/practice split
>through an activist pedagogy thoroughly immersed in the critical shifts
>associated with the emergence of performance studies, queer theory and
>poststructural feminism. Furthermore, they include practical suggestions for
>connecting academia to the public sphere. She credits the development of
>performance studies as a realm that considers both the performing arts and
>performativity, loosely performance in everyday life, as a facilitating
>factor in the program's ability to focus on performance as a public
>practice." Clyde Smith on Jill Dolan
>
>Featured Performer: Deb Margolin
>Playwright and performance artist Deb Margolin is a founding member of Split
>Britches Theater Company and has been awarded an OBIE Award for Sustained
>Excellence of Performance and the Joseph Kesselring Prize for Playwriting.
>She is the author of seven full-length solo performance pieces, which she
>has performed Off-Broadway and throughout the United States. She is
>currently at work on her eighth-which she will premiere at MTSU for the
>Women's Studies Interdisciplinary Conference.
>
>"By talking too much, and using such obsessively elegant language, Margolin
>removes herself from white privilege and power. She performs a kind of
>Jewish excess, that marks her as affectively outside normative whiteness.
>Her insistence on charting her own desire, and on calling attention to her
>own body as a locus of sexual, emotional, and spiritual feeling, also
>rejects a respectability that would disallow her to speak in the first
>place." -Jill Dolan
>
>Quotes:
>"Utopia is always a metaphor, always a wish, a desire, a no-place that
>performance can sometimes help us map if not find. But a performative is
>not a metaphor; it's a doing, and it's in the performative's gesture that
>hope adheres, that communitas happens, that the not-yet-conscious is
>glimpsed and felt and strained toward." Jill Dolan
>
>"There is no original or primary gender a drag imitates, but gender is
>a kind of imitation for which there is no original." Judith Butler
>
>"One is not born a woman, one becomes one." Simone de Beauvoir
>
>"Some of us are becoming the men we wanted to marry." Gloria Steinem
>
>"Gender is always a relationship, not a preformed category of beings or
>a possession that one can have." Donna Haraway
>
>"We must be the change we wish to see in the world." Audre Lorde
>
> "As far as I'm concerned, being any gender is a drag." Patti Smith
