"On Accidents" (Special Issue/Forum)
Call for Papers and Projects

Liminalities seeks submissions of performance projects, video and audio pieces, essays, position papers, artist pages, and other works that explore the theme of “accidents” in terms of performance and performativity. Please think broadly about the idea of accident: from the sudden disaster to the chance encounter to the productive mistake; from Aristotle’s accidental forms to Virilio’s original accident; from serendipity and fate, to misadventure and calamity, to the nature of tragedy itself. You may consider performative responses to accidents, the role of the accidental in acts of creativity, or the ontology of chance in performance and performativity.

Please send abstracts or descriptions of projects to Michael LeVan (mlevan@tampabay.rr.com or mlevan@usf.edu) by 1 September 2011. Completed works of accepted proposals should be submitted by 1 December 2011. Anticipated publication date is 1 March 2012.
