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

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 15, 2019

This session invites submissions for twenty-minute, scholarly presentations on any aspect of John Milton.

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.

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:

Bangor University
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, May 5, 2019

The narratives of criminals and law makers, sometimes valorised and sometimes vilified, surround us.
