Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights (PAMLA, Deadline 3/31/12)

updated: 
Wednesday, February 1, 2012 - 8:53am
PAMLA: Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association

Papers are sought for an approved PAMLA special session panel: Stage to Screen: Contemporary Playwrights. While much attention has been paid to film versions of Shakespeare, film adaptations of contemporary playwrights' work have received relatively little scholarly notice. This panel will examine stage-to-screen adaptations of post-1950 dramatic works, and the changes wrought upon them by the possibilities and demands—technical, artistic, and commercial—of the different medium. Topics we are interested in include (but are not limited to):
· adaptations across linguistic, national and cultural boundaries.
· the consequences of commercial imperatives, or the "hollywoodization" of artistic works.

CEA Critic Call for Articles: "The Idea of the West" (4/1/12)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 31, 2012 - 3:32pm
CEA Critic

The CEA Critic solicits articles on "The Idea of the West." Deadline 4/1/12.

The University of Northern Colorado is the new home of The CEA Critic, the journal of the College English Association. The University is located in Greeley, Colorado, a city named for famed journalist Horace Greeley, who popularized (although was not the first to utter) the injunction, "Go West, young man!" For Greeley, and for so many others before and after him, the West has been a location both literal and figurative. For our inaugural issue of The Critic, the new editors solicit essays that investigate, reflect on, seek to define, or look to challenge the notion of the West as it is addressed in any mode or genre of text.

"FOUR-FOOTED ACTORS: LIVE ANIMALS ON THE STAGE" University of Valencia (Spain) Dec. 12-14, 2012

Ignacio Ramos Gay / Universidad de Valencia

Writing in 1899, Frederick Dolman argued in an article titled "Four-Footed Actors: About Some Well-Known Animals that Appear in the London and Provincial Stage" that the "growth of variety theatres and the decay of comic songs" had developed in "several kinds of diversion, not the least of which is furnished by the art of the animal-trainer" (The English Illustrated Magazine, Sep. 1899, 192, p. 521). Dolman was describing the large-scale entertainments starring animals that had taken over traditional spectator recreations for the last century in a manner not unlike the success of music-halls and professional sport.
