Call for Chapter Proposals: Nationalism and Youth in Theatre and Performance

updated: 
Thursday, August 23, 2012 - 4:12pm
Angela Sweigart-Gallagher / Northeastern Illinois University, Victoria Pettersen Lantz / Sam Houston State University

Abstracts are now being accepted for an edited collection on historical narratives and theoretical implications of how children and youth relate to political performances. By examining different avenues of youth participation in theatrical moments of nationalism, this book will engage in a dialogue about how children and/or youth involved with public events intersect political ideologies/practices. Therefore, we invite studies on theatre created by and/or for children and/or youth on themes of nationalism and politics, as well as studies into youth-driven/centered political performance in the broader sense, from parades to protest movements.

THE NINETEENTH CENTURY STUDIES ASSOCIATION

The long nineteenth century set the world on the move. Travel became increasingly important for business and pleasure, for war and peace. At the same time, new forms of moving people arose: the balloon, ships, undergrounds, funiculars, the railroads. Each carried riders to great distances, different locales, and novel pursuits. But motion wasn't purely spatial; new movements arose as well, sweeping the inhabitants of the period into fresh vistas of thought and endeavor. We seek papers and panels that capture the sense of movement at work and at play during the long nineteenth century (1789-1914).

Interdisciplinary Nineteenth-Century Studies

"It was the best of times. It was the worst of times." It was the age of pleasure. It was the age of atonement. It was any place in the nineteenth century. The scope is global, the approaches, cross-disciplinary. What pleased the palate and tickled the nose? What roused the senses and deepened joy? What thrilled the body and inspired the mind? What did they do besides work? What diversions (respectable or otherwise) did they seek? How did they think about the enjoyments they sought? These are some of the questions to address at INCS 2013, which is devoted to 'Leisure, Enjoyment, and Fun.'

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

updated: 
Wednesday, August 22, 2012 - 8:29am
Northeast Modern Language Association

This panel seeks papers about film adaptations of medieval and Renaissance English drama, both in English-speaking countries and around the world. 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?
