dr Katarzyna Bronk

Medieval drama taught its audiences not only about virtuous living but, more importantly, a good death and a joyful afterlife. Miracle plays re-played the most significant and most spectacular deaths known from the Gospels, while morality plays, such as Everyman, imagined the act of dying and the prospects for posthumous happiness of their main characters.

The resurgence of formalist interests in recent years has sparked new discussions of the conception, role, and significance of form in literary and cultural studies as well as pedagogies. In her 2007 PMLA essay "What Is New Formalism," Marjorie Levinson lays out several strains of new formalism emerging in the American academy, which simultaneously embrace a renewal of attention to aesthetic form and express divergent emphases and agendas.

Postcolonial Interventions: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Postcolonial Studies

2016 marks the quartercentenary of Shakespeare's death and the upcoming issue of Postcolonial Interventions would focus on the continued relevance of multiple Shakespeares in the culture-scape of the postcolonial world. It is true that not only were Shakespearean plays shaped in many ways by colonial discourses, especially discourses of racial difference, but Shakespearean plays also initially functioned as those "signs taken for wonders" through which the colonial administrators sought to consolidate imperial hegemony, as evident from such critical works as Post-Colonial Shakespeares (1999).

Border Disputes: Global Modernism and World Literature - MadLit Conference 2/25/16-2/27/16

updated: 
Wednesday, December 30, 2015 - 8:48pm
Modernisms/Modernities Colloquium (MMC) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

Recently scholars of modernism have advocated for a "global turn". Accordingly, the field of modernist studies has expanded to encompass times and places, authors and texts, which have been overlooked by traditional, canonical accounts of modernism. Extending the spatial and temporal boundaries of modernism has opened new avenues of inquiry and discovery. The decentering of modernist studies from its European focus has led to the inclusion of many non-European traditions and literatures. However, some argue that a global approach to the study of modernism ignores the particularities of history, culture, and language.
