In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

The Apollonian: A Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.

Philosophical Ruptures: The Counter-hegemonic Mission of Africana Literature

The literary productions of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century African diasporic thinkers are widely acknowledged as the discursive corrective to African enslavement and colonization under Western hegemonic domination. Olaudah Equiano’s, David Walker’s, and Frederick Douglass’s works emphasize the significance of ancient African history and agitate for the abolition of chattel slavery; in the early twentieth-century, W.E.B. Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction (1935) and C.L.R. James’s The Black Jacobins (1938) contest the Eurocentricity of traditional Marxian thought by highlighting the import of enslaved African labor to the development of the modern Western capitalism.

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.

Beyond Monogamy: Opening out Adaptation Studies

For a host of reasons, the basic structure of an adaptation study has been, historically, a one-to-one comparison of source and adaptation. And for a host of reasons, this has proven (potentially) problematic. Not that the one-to-one study, or singleton, can’t be well done, productive, and downright brilliant. Clearly, it can. But as adaptation studies moves toward conceiving and theorizing adaptation according to postmodern concepts of intertextuality, the singleton becomes less dependable and productive in developing forward-moving directions, strategies, and theories for the field.
