NEW ACADEMIA - (ISSN 2277-3967) (PRINT)
AN INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE, LITERATURE AND LITERARY THEORY
Vol.1 Issue 2: April 2012
The 36th Annual Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference
October 18-20, 2012
The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference seeks proposals for papers or panels from across today's theoretical and methodological landscape that engage some facet of the amalgam "Extreme(ly) Shakespeare(an)."
"Extreme Shakespeare" alludes to the wide variety of extremities that can be found in Shakespeare's work. It brings to mind those occasions where the playwright demonstrates either a lack of regard for or a lack of control over the principles of proportionality and balance, to the degree either of those principles were prioritized by dramatists of the early modern period.
The seminar hopes to highlight on the reception and production of Tagore in various Indian Languages. The focal point of the seminar will be South Indian languages although other Indian languages are welcome.
