Call for Papers. Panel “Engaging with Audiences and the Dissemination of Knowledge”.
PAMLA Conference (San Diego, California, November 14-17, 2019).
Javier Patiño Loira (UCLA), Presiding Officer.
This session aims at reflecting on the interrelation between theater, performance, diplomacy, and politics. Since theater became theater, plays and performances have reflected, reacted, rejected, denounced, and embraced political turmoil. This panel welcomes papers presenting an interdisciplinary or theoretically grounded analysis of the ways in which theater and/or theatrical audiences react to political turmoil and/or feed institutional discourses that endorse National politics. The multifarious nature of theater escapes unidirectional readings and categorizations: performers, directors, and the very nature of a performance's dialogic form often complicates the way in which jokes, comedy, and meaning are endorsed.
