Studies in Musical Theatre

When the eponymous Sweet Charity (1966) realises somebody loves her, not only does the scene shift from dialogue into song, she acknowledges the largeness of her emotional response, singing "Now I'm a brass band." Such moments in musical theatre are at the heart of the form's appeal for many kinds of spectators, allowing them to vicariously live large for the duration of the musical and sometimes beyond. Raymond Knapp has investigated the persistence of identity formation as a process musical theatre facilitates for its creators, characters and audiences, and this special issue would build upon Knapp's work.

Apes, Humans, and Other Primates (Ottawa, ACCUTE 2015)

Marc André Fortin (Université de Sherbrooke)

Non-human primates often play the role of "other" to the rational and civilized human animal in literature. As fictional foils, Darwinian traces, and anthropomorphic ruptures, the literary primate offers an existential challenge to the perceived supremacy of human evolution, to the social and biological experience of consciousness, and to epistemological models of truth and being. Recent representations of the non-human primate (Sara Gruen's Ape House, Colin McAdam's A Beautiful Truth, Kenneth Oppel's Half Brother) both contest and reinforce the dividing line between the human and animal, and situate the human within its own evolutionary history as animal.

This panel seeks papers on the relation between trauma and representation in photography and related visual media. How do images of atrocities both provoke and disarm our voyeuristic gaze? How does bearing witness differ within visual, oral, and literary fields? This panel will explore our engagement with the spectacle of atrocities via the work of artists such as Alfredo Jaar and Richard Mosse. Preference will be given to papers that examine both photography and literature.

"Age and the Stage: Women and Aging in Long Eighteenth-Century Drama"

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies Annual Conference. Los Angeles, CA March 19-21, 2015

"Age and the Stage" is inspired by this year's ASECS location in Los Angeles, a city deeply connected to an entertainment industry that foregrounds the complicated intersection of the feminine, aging, and cultural representations of both. It will seek papers that investigate the place of older and aging women in the long eighteenth-century's very own "entertainment industry:" the English theater. When the theaters of London opened their doors to women, young actresses were given the opportunity to enter the public spotlight, and, as demonstrated in recent works by Laura Engle, Felicity Nussbaum, and Joseph Roach, star actresses became the driving force behind the success of Restoration and eighteenth-century theater.
