Studies in the Novel

Studies in the Novel welcomes proposals for its Fall 2017 special issue on any topic pertaining to the novel, from its origins to the present.

dr Katarzyna Bronk

The editors of the collection of essays on old age and aging in (currently) British theatre and drama have received a few wonderful contributions on Irish playwrights and plays. We therefore decided to potentially broaden the scope of the initially planned publication and include some more essays, focused on Irish and Northern Irish dramaturgy and old age/aging.

We invite abstracts on the following topics but other notions related to age, the elderly and aging in drama across centuries are likewise encouraged:

• biological, chronological, functional, cultural definitions of old age, senescence and aging in drama but also beyond

• performativity of old age (markers of old age; the old body on stage; etc)

The OED defines 'refuge' as "the state of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger or difficulty." As this all-encompassing definition suggests, refuge is a multifarious concept, subject to many interpretations. Conditions of economic, social and political crisis in our contemporary world have, however, rendered achieving 'refuge' an ever more elusive state.
