The International Sidney Society plans to sponsor four sessions at the 66th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America in Philadelphia (April 2-4, 2020).We are eager to invite papers on any and all topics related to Philip Sidney, Mary Sidney Herbert, Lady Mary Wroth, the Sidney Family or the Sidney Circle generally.  That Circle is conceived broadly, and hence we would welcome papers not only about Fulke Greville, Samuel Daniel, and William Herbert, but also papers about Alberico Gentili,  Veronica Franco, Vittoria Colonna, George Buchanan, Philippe Duplessis-Mornay, Étienne de La Boétie, Giordano Bruno, Justus Lipsius, and any number of figures in the Circle’s large cosmopolitan network.

Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human

Abstracts and articles are sought for an edited collection to be entitled Decentering the Anthropocene: Spanish Ecocritical Texts and the Non-Human. Ecocriticism examines literary and cultural representations of the natural environment and diverse life forms, often in the context of broader political, economic, and social issues and often with an ethical commitment to sustainability and environmental justice. In this context, ecocritical work may interrogate how texts treat anthropocentrism, or the centralization of humans’ perspectives, needs, and experiences over those of other beings.

Theater, Diplomacy, and Politics

PAMLA 117th Annual Conference, San Diego, Nov 14-17th, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019

This session aims at reflecting on the interrelation between theater, performance, diplomacy, and politics. Since theater became theater, plays and performances have reflected, reacted, rejected, denounced, and embraced political turmoil. This panel welcomes papers presenting an interdisciplinary or theoretically grounded analysis of the ways in which theater and/or theatrical audiences react to political turmoil and/or feed institutional discourses that endorse National politics. The multifarious nature of theater escapes unidirectional readings and categorizations: performers, directors, and the very nature of a performance's dialogic form often complicates the way in which jokes, comedy, and meaning are endorsed.
