Beckett in International Culture and Politics

Samuel Beckett Today/ Aujourd'hui
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 6, 2017

Samuel Beckett Today/Aujourd’hui solicits proposals for articles in French or English on Beckett’s global and political reach. More than the question of Beckett’s international influence, we ask scholars to consider how Beckett’s work provides aesthetic models for artists seeking to address political conflict, to break the straightjacket of imposed artistic forms, or to represent forms of human violence. Does Beckett’s work help or hinder artists in formulating a political aesthetic or navigating specific political demands and situations? Does Beckett’s work inform conceptions of committed art?

Call for Abstracts on “New Directions on Improvisation”

 

For the 2018 Comparative Drama Conference, there will be a sub-theme of improv running through the three days. On Thursday night we will be attending an improv performance at SAK Comedy Lab. On Saturday afternoon there will be a plenary dedicated to improv. To round out the conference, we invite papers for either a panel (or if we get enough interest a round table) on new directions in improv, as we look to consider how improv pushes boundaries within performance, the process of dramatic creation, and the text.

 

Some possible topics to consider (but definitely not limited to):

 

Players and Playing in Eighteenth-Century Drama

updated: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 9:45am
South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 1, 2017

This panel will consider papers that explore “players and playing,” broadly interpreted, in drama of the long eighteenth century. Possible topics include games, gambling, and other forms of play; actors, acting styles, and staging; and representations of drama and the theater. Submit abstracts to Ashley Bender at abender@twu.edu.

This year's conference will be held February 23-24 in Oxford, MS. For more information, visit the website at http://scsecs.net/scsecs/2018/2018cfp.html.

Shakespeare’s Migrants and Exiles – Shakespeare Across Borders

updated: 
Wednesday, October 4, 2017 - 12:46pm
Shakespeare Seminar 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

In Shakespeare’s works characters are frequently banished from court, from the city or their country. Some move voluntary and many make their first appearance with a history of migration. Some yearn for their home, some are glad to escape persecution. Some bemoan the loss of their identity, some embrace a new identity abroad. People are exiled for various reasons, banished from another’s present, from a place, or from memory. Exile may mean a new chance or certain death. Migrants are greeted with hope, with fear, with fierce rejection. In a more abstract sense, Shakespeare’s plays and poems themselves became migrant texts as they were performed by travelling players or otherwise transmitted across time and space.

With their 2016 production of Spring Awakening, Deaf West Theatre was celebrated for their ongoing revolutionary approaches towards musical theatre, putting deaf and hearing actors on stage together, adapting stories and characters in Deaf cultural contexts, and making diversity and accessibility top priorities both on- and off-stage. The production was also the first Broadway show to feature an actor in a wheelchair, Ali Stroker.
