  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

I am seeking proposals for 10-minute presentations on the topic of women
in August Wilson's cycle of plays. I hope to put together a roundtable
for ALA in Boston (May 24-27, 2007) on the often-unappreciated role
women play in Wilson's depiction of twentieth-century African American
experience.

Please send abstracts of approximately 200 words to
beaulieea_at_appstate.edu by December 1, 2006. I would like to include
short papers on 6 or 7 of Wilson's plays, as well as time for discussion
among panelists and audience members.
