Dancing in Restoration and 18th-Century England--due 9/15/15

Wednesday, July 29, 2015 - 2:55pm
American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Meeting (Mar. 21-April 2)

Dance was an important part of Restoration and eighteenth-century society and of Restoration and eighteenth- century theatre, and it figures prominently in a number of eighteenth-century novels as well. Yet it is a field of study that has been largely overlooked in Restoration and eighteenth-century scholarship that focuses on England. This panel invites papers on all aspects of eighteenth-century British dance culture, from attempts to reconstruct or analyze dances to explorations of eighteenth-century dance textbooks to inquiries into how dance informed the other arts like theater, opera, and the novel. What might the methodologies of dance scholarship contribute to our understanding of eighteenth-century books, performances, or cultures?

The City in Quarantine--abstract due 9/30/15, conference 3/17-20, 2016

In William Shakespeare and Thomas Middleton's problematic play Timon of Athens, the fate of Athens hangs in the balance as the eponymous character threatens the city with literal and figurative diseases from outside its walls. Timon thus embodies a nightmarishly pathogenic force, sending forth plagues and venereal diseases to "thatch your poor thin roofs/With burthens of the dead" (V.iii.143-145), even as the city's gates bar his physical entrance. Although Timon of Athens has traditionally been regarded as an anti-corruption allegory, the play thus presents fruitful opportunities for examination through the lens of quarantine and urban containment.

CFP: Love and the Word, Melbourne, 7th-9th December 2016

Australasian Universities Languages and Literature Association (AULLA)

Love & the Word - AULLA Conference 2016

DEADLINE: Monday the 29th February 2016

Hosted by Victoria University, the Australasian Universities Languages & Literature Association Conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia from 7th-9th December 2016.

The conference theme draws on AULLA's origins as an association of scholars working in fields of philology. Thus we examine both philos (love) and logos (word). How does affection affect words? What do people mean by 'love' and its counterparts in the world's languages? Or perhaps: how does it 'do' those meanings?
