“Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance" (SCSECS 2019)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 12:10pm
Ashley Bender / South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions? Submit abstracts of 250-500 words to Ashley Bender at abender@twu.edu.

REMINDER: Bridging the Gap? Digital Media in the Humanities Classroom (special issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities)

deadline for submissions:

Recent critical focus on media and technology maps efforts to create a dynamic classroom that at its best enriches the teaching and learning at the university. But the long-standing interest in media as a means to reach students and enhance delivery also points to an absence in current scholarship, which has not been attentive to that same media as content in the humanities classroom.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Washington D.C. - 21-24 March, 2019

In “Further Considerations on Afrofuturism”, Kodwo Eshun argued that the impact of the Middle Passage and slavery could still be felt in African American authorship today. The erasure of their African past, culture and heritage leaving them disconnected and made strangers, black writers look to the future as a way of dealing and engaging with the present. The term counterfutures is thus used to describe those writings that explore the potentiality of a dissonant life that emerges from these traumas, ones which reimagine the futures that the current path of human experience seems to lead to, as well as the pasts that have or might catalyze real or imagined futures.

American Postmemory: Slavery in Black and White / Deadline 9/30

Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Recognizing that the New World economy was historically based on the system of slavery and that the United States came into being as a slave-holding nation, we experience the lasting effects of slavery in all facets of contemporary US society and culture. This panel seeks papers analyzing contemporary representations of slave history from the black and white perspectives. While we are very familiar with African American representations of slavery in a number of cultural media, this panel is particularly interested in how contemporary representations of slavery created by people of European descent differ from those of African Americans. How is slavery remembered differently in black and white?

Comics and Magazines: An (Italian) Phenomenon

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Since its inception in 1908, the development of the comics medium in Italy has been marked by a profound symbiosis with magazines. Throughout the decades, the magazine as a container of cartoon strips and children’s stories (e.g. Corriere dei Piccoli) has evolved into different forms to cater to a broader and more varied readership. From the 1960s, family and adventure weeklies for children and adolescents (e.g. Il Giornalino, Intrepido, Lanciostory, etc.) coexisted with the so-called auteur comics magazines, which provided adults with both classic Anglo-Saxon comic strips and the latest comics stories by renowned Franco-Belgian, Argentinian, and Italian authors.
