University of Virginia's College at Wise Medieval-Renaissance Conference XXVII

This session seeks papers on the dramatic literature of medieval and renaissance Spain. We are particularly interested in papers that deal with the development of drama in the period, and with the transition from the medieval to the early modern as represented in Spanish drama and literature. We will also consider representations of Spain in the French and English drama. Possible topics include medieval religious drama; the development of Spanish Renaissance drama, including but not limited to, the plays of Lope de Vega and Calderón; and representations of Spain on the French and English stage, such as in the dramatic works of Pierre Corneille and Thomas Kyd.

Area: The Golden Age of Television Drama

The television drama has been, and continues to be, one of the most important and contested elements of television production in the United States and around the world. In America, the genre—mostly episodic in style—came into its own in the late 1940s and early 1950s, experiencing what many call its first "Golden Age."

Carved from the Mountains: Defining Sustainability in the Appalachian Region

In following with the SAMLA 86 theme of "Sustainability and the Humanities," this session will explore the idea of sustainability as it relates to the Appalachian region. How can we define sustainability in the region? How have sustainable resources and agriculture shaped Appalachian literature and culture? How have conflicts about the idea of sustainability—do we sustain our mountaintop environments or sustain our jobs?—played a role in Appalachian literature and culture? In what ways can sustainability be seen outside its traditional environmental and economical terms? How has Appalachian literature aided or hindered the sustainability of Appalachian cultural values, religious beliefs, regional dialect—even Appalachian stereotypes?

There was a time when the individual was the central category in Modernism. It was a time of quasi-blind reliance on the Hegelian oppositions self-versus-reality and self-versus-society, critical talismans tirelessly employed by Marxist critics from Lukács through Goldmann. In fact, Lukács's censorious construal of the modernist novel as an anomalous form bound to stage the individual "confined within the limits of his own experience" remained an article of faith for various generations of critics. Admittedly, that time is up. The old focus has been replaced by a new emphasis on community and communal determinations of individuality in new modernist studies.
