Special Issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities dealing with Pride and Humility (Submission due November 1, 2012)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2012 - 1:25pm
full name / name of organization: 
Humanities Education and Research Association

This issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities draws upon the widest variety of insights from the humanities to addresses the difficult and even paradoxical questions around pride and humility.

From the rage of Achilles to Priam's subservient pleadings for Hector's body, from the conceit of King Lear to the meekness of Cordelia, from the terribilità of Michelangelo's Moses to the earthy nobility of Van Gogh's Potato Eaters, from the detachment of Lao Tzu to the powerful assertions of Nietzsche, and from the pride punished in Dante's Purgatory to the pride celebrated by Michael Eric Dyson; writers, thinkers, and artists through the ages have addressed fundamental questions about the nature of pride and humility.

Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights (PAMLA, Deadline 3/31/12)

PAMLA: Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
contact email: 

Papers are sought for an approved PAMLA special session panel: Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights. While much attention has been paid to film versions of Shakespeare, film adaptations of contemporary playwrights' work have received relatively little scholarly notice. This panel will examine stage-to-screen adaptations of post-1950 dramatic works, and the changes wrought upon them by the possibilities and demands—technical, artistic, and commercial—of the different medium. Topics we are interested in include (but are not limited to):
· adaptations across linguistic, national and cultural boundaries.
· the consequences of commercial imperatives, or the "hollywoodization" of artistic works.
