 The Confluence: Octavia E. Butler at the Intersection of Cultural Critique and Climate Collapse 

September 11-13, 2020

A confluence is the place where two rivers meet. It is a place of not only great energy but great power and creativity. Located at one of the great confluences,  the Twin Cities occupy this place called Bdote – “where two waters come together” – that is sacred to the Dakota people. The Octavia E. Butler Literary Society invites you to join us at this sacred place of power and creativity for the third biennial conference where we will feature work honoring Butler. Our host is St. Catherine University in St. Paul MN.

Persistence in American Drama

updated: 
Saturday, February 29, 2020 - 12:33pm
American Theatre and Drama Society & Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 15, 2020

Due Date Extended: This panel will consider how American plays, live performances, masters, or movements in American drama and theatre from any period offer strategies for persistence in an age of mechanical reproduction. How do American plays model, operationalize, and/or resist persistence? Why and how do some theatrical voices persist in the national discourse amid marginalization? For example, papers may wish to consider persistence in American drama within Benjaminian, or other, theoretical context(s) regarding the work of art in an age of mechanical reproduction or live performance’s “aura” in a digital age.
