CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 'Contemporary Dramatic Monologues’

(Dramatic monologue, also known as a persona poem, is a type of poetry
written in the form of a speech of an individual character. M.H.
Abrams notes the following three features of the dramatic monologue as
it applies to poetry

1.. A single person, who is patently not the poet, utters the speech
that makes up the whole of the poem, in a specific situation at a
critical moment

2. This person addresses and interacts with one or more other people;
but we know of the auditors' presence, and what they say and do, only
from clues in the discourse of the single speaker.

Young adults have historically been both subject to and perpetrators of violence, regardless of social class or culture of provenience. In the 20th and 21st century, literature and media have paid special attention to this relationship, focusing particularly on how violence shapes youths who will become the "leaders of tomorrow." Different cultures assign distinct values to the threats and challenges young adults face and, likewise, demonstrate varying responses to violence against or by youths.

If the first major waves of popular interest in, philanthropic funding of, and scholarship on contemporary Jewish music and songwriters in the U.S. have finally receded, they've left a treasure in their wake. From Orthodox popular music and chazzanut, to jazz masters of the 1930s, to hipster oddities of the “new Jewish music” scene, to gypsy-punk klezmer cabaret bands and the Jewish identified art of Leonard Cohen and John Zorn, today’s audiences have access to a wealth of Jew-ish sounds and entertainments.

The Holocaust and the Domestic

As Holocaust survivors were liberated from concentration camps, prisons, and places of hiding—among other compromised milieus they were forced to inhabit from 1939–45—they brought the memories and the trauma of the Holocaust to the places they eventually came to call “home.” Bringing such emotional and psychological burdens with them, many survivors settled abroad—from Argentina to Canada and from the United States to Israel—and established families, rearing those who would later be called “second-generation” Holocaust witnesses. These children of Holocaust survivors (and their children) have become the carriers and bearers of their parents’ memories and trauma that came to define the domestic experience of survivor households.
