American Drama’s Ethical Transactions

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 3:26pm
The American Theatre and Drama Society and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.

The Charge of the Light Brigade: Half a Century Onward

A One-Day Symposium

Friday 18 May 2018, The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University

 

Next year sees the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Woodfall Films’ epic production The Charge of the Light Brigade. While the film suffered from director Tony Richardson’s fractious relationship with the critics when it first appeared, it has subsequently assumed a totemic significance in British cinema history, embracing the anti-imperial values of the 1960s counter-culture in its depiction of one of the great disasters of British military history.

Victorian Animal Encounters: A one day conference University of Portsmouth UK, 4 May 2018  Keynote speaker: Dr Jane Hamlett, Royal Holloway “I went to show my friend Pigott the grave of the illustrious Shelley. Approaching the resting-place of the divine poet in a bright sunlight, the finest black Tom you ever saw discovered at an incredible distance that a catanthropist had entered the cemetery—rushed up at a gallop with his tail at right-angles to his spine—turned over on his back with his four paws in the air, and said in the language of cats: ‘Shelley be hanged! Come and tickle me!’ I stooped and tickled him. We were both profoundly affected.” (Wilkie Collins, letter to his mother, 1866).
