Iconic Shakespearean actresses such as Peggy Ashcroft (1988) have marvelled at the versatility and depth of Shakespeare's feminine roles. Lady Macbeth, Beatrice, Ophelia, Queen Margaret, Juliet, Paulina, Desdemona, Volumnia, Lavinia… all are characters which have been variously represented, or objectified in Western culture, and whose names have now become easily recognizable emblems or concepts—even myths.

Papers are invited for a two-day refereed conference on Disnarration from 1st to 2nd March 2013, at IIT Bombay, Mumbai, India.

Gerald Prince's introduction of the 'disnarrated' in 1988 marks an interesting milestone in the evolution of narrative theory. The notion of what could have, but does not happen in a narrative, opens up new ways of looking at texts and at their visibility, overt and implicit.

Filming this Insubstantial Pageant: Medieval and Renaissance Drama on Film (Abstracts due Sept. 30)

Monday, September 10, 2012 - 7:47am
Northeast Modern Language Association (conference Mar. 2013)

This panel seeks papers about film adaptations of medieval and Renaissance English drama, both in English-speaking countries and around the world. The NeMLA conference will be held in Boston in March, 2013. Papers might compare different adaptations of the same play, discuss problems associated with the notion of fidelity to text or of relocating a play in a different historical or cultural milieu, or consider the effectiveness for use in scholarly work or in the classroom. We seek investigation of continuities across disciplines: medieval/Renaissance, cinema studies/literature. What is at stake in these adaptations? What do these directors, writers, performers, and audiences bring to the table?

Brecht and Benjamin at the Chess Board: Mapping Theatres of Exile

updated: 
Saturday, September 8, 2012 - 1:31pm
AMerican Comparative Literature Association

In his 2012 article "Dramaturgies of Exile", Freddie Rokem writes about Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht's exile in Denmark in the 1930s: together they wrote, dined, discussed theatre and philosophy, and played board games including Go and Chess.  Rokem argues that their game-playing echoed their own personal trajectories of travel and exile, as well as embodied game board mappings of their philosophical and artistic theories.
