SETC Theatre Symposium Volume 27

“Theatre and Embodiment”

DATES: April 13-15, 2018

LOCATION: Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA

 

At the heart of the theatrical act is the simultaneous live presence of the actor and the audience. Given primacy of bodies in and to the theatrical act, how do we understand those bodies as communicating meaning? How do bodies understand themselves as operating within the theatrical or performative context? The 2018 Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) Theatre Symposium will focus on the interplay between theatre and embodiment. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

CALL FOR ESSAYS: Journal Imaginaires: Places of Rupture

Journal Imaginaires (CIRLEP, Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne) Call for papers: Places of rupture Major works of art are often the result of a break or of several breaks with their time, which leads their authors to reconfigure their worldviews, reinvent their use of language, modify a genre, or conceive a new theory. But a work itself is also made up of flows and rhythms that delineate or destroy the main features of a man’s existence, a community or a territory for others to take form or be wiped out for ever.

Nationalism and Internationalism: Irish Modernist Poetry of the Interwar Years

The interwar years (1918-1939) were a turbulent time in Ireland. With the aftermath of the 1916 Easter Rising, the Irish Civil War and the formation of the Irish Free State in 1922, Ireland was a nation in upheaval and at war with itself. The symbiotic relationship between the formation of the Irish Free State and the poetry that was produced during the interwar period is of particular if sometimes neglected importance to the canon of Irish Modernism. This panel discussion invites participants to look more deeply at the body of work that came at the end of the Irish Literary Revival and led to the formation of Irish Modernism. 

Borderlines: Ekphrasis and the Status of the Poetic in Rhetorical Appeals

updated:

NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The proposed panel purports to explore the functions of ekphrasis and the poetic in rhetorical appeals. It welcomes papers based on the Classical appeals to logos, pathos and ethos, as well as Modern appeals to authority, evidence, data, time, place, the body, gender, race, literary tropes and narrative form. Within the context of the panel, the term ekphrasis is broadly interpreted in both its Ancient sense, as energeia, that is vivid sensuous description, or its more Modern sense as the verbal representation of visual representation. Another way to frame the intention of the panel would be to say that it purports to explore the persuasive power of both vision and language from Antiquity to the present.
