The last two decades have seen three significant paradigm shifts. First,
there is a movement to deconstruct in order to reconstruct the super
physical world of consciousness in relation to the post human body - data
made flesh. Secondly, the academic disciplines commonly grouped under the
headings of humanities and arts have seen a shift from the textual to the
performative. The arts and humanities have in common that they study
expressions of the experience of being human. It is precisely that
experience that is at the centre of the third paradigm shift, in the
interdisciplinary scientific study of consciousness. The insights of
consciousness studies are important to performance and theatre on at least

Folklore and dramatic literature
 
The American Folklore Society sponsors a special session at the annual
meeting of the MLA. In 2006, we invite papers that consider the relationship
between folklore and dramatic literature, including how folklore is employed
by playwrights.
 
Contemporary theatre practice has reached out to incorporate traditional
elements in playwrights¹ search for something new or fresh. Recent examples
include Mary Zimmerman¹s conceptualization of Greek myth in Metamorphoses
and the adoption of puppets in Avenue Q. The inclusion of elements of
tradition goes farther than just subject matter or a gimmick: folklore makes

"Bridging the Divide: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and
Periodization"
2006 MLA Convention
Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2006

"Periodization" has often limited the ways in which we define, examine, and
theorize performance. This panel invites papers that consider how medieval
and/or renaissance performance challenges
traditional notions of periodization. Periodization is defined broadly in
this context. Papers might suggest how performance bridges such moments as
ancient to early medieval, the High to Late Middle Ages, Medieval to
Renaissance, or pre- to post-Reformation, but papers that examine fresh
definitions, ideas, and theories of periodization are especially encouraged.
