MLA 2008--San Francisco: Pirandello Society Panels

Topic: Pirandellian Moods: Narrative, Film, Theatre into the Twenty-first
Century.

 
Arthur Livingston, an early Pirandello translator and scholar, identified
in Pirandello's works a "complex mood," a "mysterious symbolism made up
of terror, and rebellion, and pity, and human kindness." For contemporary
critics, directors, performers, spectators and writers: how do
Pirandellian extremes cross over or interlace; how does the complex mood
of Pirandello’s work resonate in the 21st century?

Staging Femininity: Women and the Theater (4/1/2008; SAMLA 11/7/2008â€"
11/9/2008)

Historically the relationship between women and the theater has been a site
of contestation. A woman’s place in the theater, whether as a character,
an actor, an author, or an attendee, often has drawn pointed social and
literary commentary. In keeping with the theme of the 2008 SAMLA
Convention, Drama, the 2008 SAMLA Women’s Studies Panel seeks paper
proposals that address the ways that femininity has been and is written,
performed, staged, and received in theatrical works.
