‘WRITING ABOUT CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS: CHALLENGES, PRACTICES, AND COMPLEXITIES’: CALL FOR PAPERS
An international, multi-disciplinary three-day conference to be hosted at the University of Surrey, UK, Friday 20 – Sunday 22 October 2017.
Call for Submissions for Volume Three of New Perspectives in Edward Albee Society, the Official Publication of the Edward Albee Society. (Published annually by Brill from which Volume One, Edward Albee and Absurdism, is now available)
Topic: Edward Albee as Dramatic and Theatrical Innovator
We are seeking essays that explore Albee’s plays for innovations in theatrical style, dramatic structure, creation of great characters (from both a performance and observation of human behavior perspective), and subject matter (e.g., mistreatment of the elderly, reversal of gender roles in conventional marriage, death and dying).
For Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
