The Catharine Maria Sedgwick Society invites proposals for the following panel at the SSAWW Conference November 7-11, 2018 in Denver: "Resisting Readers and Resisting Narrators within Sedgwick's Works."  Many of Sedgwick's popular short writings are didactic in nature, leading readers toward desired, mostly conventional responses.  If Judith Fetterley valued the "resisting reader of texts, where can we find that message within Sedgwick's writing? How are characters themselves resisting readers - and what kind of texts do they resist?  Are there multiple layers or dynamics of resistance within a text?  And what about the narrators?

Michel Foucault defines biopolitics as “this very specific, albeit very complex, power that has

the population as its target, political economy as its major form of knowledge and apparatuses of

security [or dispositifs] as its essential technical instrument.” Timothy Campbell and Adam Sitze,

in turn, describe the “biopolitical turn” as “a proliferation of studies, claiming Foucault as an

inspiration, on the relations between ‘life’ and ‘politics.’”

As scholars have further engaged with and complicated the concept of biopolitics, new trends

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.
