deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

The “Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism” permanent section of the 2019 Midwest Modern Language Association invites proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers.” Scholarship that explores issues of duality in Shakespeare’s literature, and in early modern culture broadly, from myriad perspectives will be considered.

Exploring doubling in Shakespeare’s works might begin with attention to any of the following list of topics:

· Duality of texts and paratexts

· Double-meanings (linguistics, semantics, multiple interpretations)

· Double entendre

· Twins, doubles in drama

· Doubled literary sources

Drama and Society 2: Theater as reflecting the “state-of-the-nation”

 

Theater is a uniquely effective venue for artists to comment on the affairs of a nation, responding to the temper of the times. Not only does it function as a public forum for debate, but the variety of tools in its repertoire renders this art form supremely effective in conveying the complexities that such a comment involves.

Drama and Society 1: Theatre’s Clowns and Comic Traditions 

 

This panel invites papers that explore the many ways the ever elusive and haunting trope of the clown has been represented in theatre arts: from the Ancients to the Contemporary, from the buffoon to the coulrophobic grotesque, and as a signifier embedded in both Western and non-Western cultures.

South Atlantic Modern Language Association Milton Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

This session invites submissions for twenty-minute, scholarly presentations on any aspect of John Milton. Especially welcome are proposals addressing the conference theme, “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships.” From Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost to Satan and Jesus in Paradise Regain’d to the Lady and Comus in A Masque, Milton encouraged readers to think power, identity, and relationships in many forms and in many contexts. What might these intersections of power, identity, and relationship reveal to us about Milton as a poet and political activist? By Friday, May 25, please submit an abstract of 200 words, a brief bio, and any A/V requests to Dr.

Eric Wistrom / MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, April 15, 2019

From the trial of Marie/Marin le Marcis (1601) to the esthetics of the monstrueux in Pantagruel (1532) and Phèdre (1677) to the shifting literary optic of Jacques le Fataliste et son maître (1796), questions of hybridity, duality, and paradox have remained central to development of the Early Modern literary canon and its related philosophical principles. In keeping with this year’s MMLA convention theme of “Duality, Doubles and Doppelgängers”, papers investigating the complex relationship between the notions of duality, plurality and hybridity will be of particular interest. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
