Call for Contributions: edited volume on 'Shakespeare and Dance'

Monday, July 14, 2014 - 6:50am
full name / name of organization: 
Lynsey McCulloch (Coventry University) & Brandon Shaw (Brown University)

Edited Volume: Shakespeare and Dance
Editors: Dr Lynsey McCulloch (Coventry University) and Dr Brandon Shaw (Brown University)

We are seeking potential contributors to an edited volume of essays on the subject of Shakespeare and Dance. Despite much academic interest in movement, materiality and the body – and the growth of dance studies as a disciplinary field – Shakespeare's employment of dancing as both theatrical device and thematic marker remains under-studied. The reimagining of his plays as dance works is also neglected as a subject for research. This volume looks to examine Shakespearean dance in all its variety, with the objectives of stimulating interest in and producing conceptual schema relevant to this growing area of study.

NeMLA 2015: Unexpected Affect in Shakespearean Drama

This panel will explore the ways in which Shakespearean drama delivers emotional intensity (passions, affectations, embodiment, etc.) in unexpected places. When might certain emotional reactions be surprising in Shakespeare's plays? Are there particular characters that share their feelings unexpectedly, yet with astonishing resonance?

The significance of this session is to explore whether, after four centuries of exposure, these can still be capable of emotionally shocking. In today's academic climate, do Shakespeare's words have the potential to be so emotionally disturbing that students might/can/should expect a "trigger warning" on syllabi?

Participatory urban projects have been shown to foster 'real' democracy; enliven the public sphere; expand civic consciousness and increase transparency, accountability and efficiency (Baiocchi 2005]. Participatory art projects subvert the traditional relationship between the art object, the artist and the audience such that the artist is no longer an individual producer of discrete objects but a collaborator and producer of situations; the audience is a co-producer or participant; and the work of art is an ongoing happening rather than a commodifiable object (Bishop 2012).

How have new technologies transformed literary and cultural histories? How do they enable critical practices of scholars working in and outside of digital humanities? Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?

Genre-Bending in Lawman's Brut (9/15; Kalamazoo 5/14-17, 2015)

Monday, July 14, 2014 - 1:04am
full name / name of organization: 
Kenneth Tiller / International Lawman's Brut Society
contact email: 

Since its publication in 1847 by Sir Frederic Madden, Lawman's Brut has challenged scholars with the question of genre, as various studies have tried to categorize it as a "chronicle," "epic," "romance" or as some other form of literature. Recent studies have also noted Lawman's blending of the features of different poetic and prose genres. Seeking to further this debate, this session asks for proposals that examine issues of genre in the Brut. It encourages papers that take on questions of how best to categorize Lawman's work and proposals that examine his use of the various genres and sub-genres available to him, including for example hagiography and the homily.
