Revealing the developing artistic milieu in Film, Theatre and Television

   17th of April 2009, University of Reading


Romanticism was a cultural landscape characterised by the eternal
oscillation between a ‘modern’ enthusiasm that had failed and a
‘postmodern’ irony that would soon falter. Now, years later, another scene
marked by oscillations is taking shape.

CFP: [Theatre] Voicing the Future in Latina/o Literature (ALA 5/21-5/25 2008)

The panel will explore expressions of the future in Latino/a theatre,
poetry and performance. Papers may focus on one text or performance, on
works by one author, or on multiple writers/performers within the Latino/a
ethnic group. Papers are sought that explore various kinds of imagined
futures in terms of dystopic or utopic environments, landscapes and
communities; political futures; gendered subjectivities and racial
constructions. I am particularly interested in essays that explore how
these futures are articulated and physically expressed, and hope to get
papers that examine these representations in contemporary Latina/o theatre,
performance and poetry.

and theater played in anti-colonial/imperial struggles, for example? How do local performances
recast our understanding of both racial formation and minority cultural practices?
