Schuylkill Graduate Journal

We are in bondage to the law in order that we may be free. -- Marcus Tullius Cicero

All things are subject to interpretation; whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth. -- Friedrich Nietzsche

Bondage is the life of personality, and for bondage the personal self will fight with tireless resourcefulness and the most stubborn cunning. -- Aldous Huxley

[UPDATE] Deadline Extended - Shakespeare in Performance conference, UMF

Thursday, February 2, 2012 - 1:45pm
University of Maine at Farmington

Shakespeare in Performance
University of Maine at Farmington May 4-6 2012

The deadline for proposals has been extended to 20 February 2012.

Shakespeare and performance in all its expressions, with a focus on the tragedies. This includes stage and screen adaptations, but we are also especially interested in papers and proposals for workshops, demonstrations, and non-traditional presentations on previously under-examined Shakespearean performance (musical scores, ballet, puppetry, street theater, digitization, hybridization, and so forth). Papers engaging the intertextualities of play, performance, and reception, source and script, and that are sensitive to the multiplicity of competing interpretations are also encouraged.

What's vice today may be virtue, tomorrow. -- Henry Fielding

In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.--Marquis de Sade

Greed, avarice, and lust; bribery, prostitution, and blackmail; sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll—vice is a sign and cause of social ills as well as an outlet of rebellion against structure and stagnation. How we (dis)associate ourselves with vice helps constitute our individual and group identities and affiliations.
