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:

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

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 3:11pm
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.

Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 1:05pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?
