Call for Papers: Shakespeare and Popular Culture
12-13 October 2019, Campion College of the Liberal Arts, Sydney
The “Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism” permanent section of the 2019 Midwest Modern Language Association invites proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers.” Scholarship that explores issues of duality in Shakespeare’s literature, and in early modern culture broadly, from myriad perspectives will be considered.
Exploring doubling in Shakespeare’s works might begin with attention to any of the following list of topics:
· Duality of texts and paratexts
· Double-meanings (linguistics, semantics, multiple interpretations)
· Double entendre
· Twins, doubles in drama
· Doubled literary sources
This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages. We use double blind peer review.
“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Drama and Society 1: Theatre’s Clowns and Comic Traditions
This panel invites papers that explore the many ways the ever elusive and haunting trope of the clown has been represented in theatre arts: from the Ancients to the Contemporary, from the buffoon to the coulrophobic grotesque, and as a signifier embedded in both Western and non-Western cultures.
Call for Chapters: Reconstructing & Adapting Fragmentary Greek Tragedy
This call is to solicit chapter proposals for a new edited volume called Reconstructing & Adapting Fragmentary Greek Tragedy which builds on the academic workshop of the same name, organised by myself in summer 2018 at Royal Holloway, University of London. I would like to invite classicists, theatre studies scholars and theatre practitioners to submit abstracts for essays of 4.000-7000 words.

Visualizing the Self in Flux 25th - 26th October 2019
Timothy Morton describes dark ecology as ‘ecological awareness, dark-depressing. Yet ecological awareness is also dark-uncanny. And strangely it is dark-sweet.’ The concept of dark ecology represents a crucial intervention in the current moment of political conservatism and climate change denial and enables a focused exploration of a wide range of issues relating to performance and ecology. Human activity on the planet is responsible for a number of ecological and political dilemmas, including (but not limited to) global climate change, pollution, leaking pipelines, fragmentation of ecosystems, diminishing natural resources and nuclear meltdowns.
