DEFIANCE: An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

**DEADLINE EXTENDED: May 8, 2017**

Hard times are coming, when we’ll be wanting the voices of writers who can see alternatives to how we live now, can see through our fear-stricken society and its obsessive technologies to other ways of being, and even imagine real grounds for hope. We’ll need writers who can remember freedom – poets, visionaries – realists of a larger reality. […] We live in capitalism, its power seems inescapable – but then, so did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art. Very often in our art, the art of words.

Territory, Politics and Performance in Tudor England

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation.  As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire.  Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.
