“Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance" (SCSECS 2019)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 3, 2018 - 12:10pm
Ashley Bender / South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions? Submit abstracts of 250-500 words to Ashley Bender at abender@twu.edu.

“Women Don’t Ask: Negotiating the Academy” [Women’s Caucus] Katarina Stenke, University of Greenwich, K.Stenke@greenwich.ac.uk AND Youmi Jung, Texas A&M University; youmi23@tamu.edu  For many women, the idea of negotiation provokes anxiety, as it implies conflict. Convinced that negotiation means one must be aggressive, self-absorbed, and dominant and that negotiation strategies are defined by assertive language, distrust, and uncertain boundaries, many women tend to avoid negotiating.

E21: Presentivism in the Eighteenth-Century Studies Classroom

In its manifesto, the V21 Collective asserts that “Victorian Studies has fallen prey to positivist historicism: a mode of inquiry that aims to do little more than exhaustively describe, preserve, and display the past” and advocates for “a new openness to presentism: an awareness that our interest in the period is motivated by certain features of our own moment.” At the 2018 ASECS, the same question was asked of eighteenth-century studies: as a discipline, have we “fallen prey to positivist historicism,” and would it benefit us to be open to presentism? Do we need our own V21, or E21?
