LIES 2012: "Of what is past, or passing, Or to come": Travelling in time and space in literature in English

updated: 
Monday, October 24, 2011 - 5:54am
Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

The lines quoted in the title of the conference from W.B. Yeats' "Sailing to Byzantium," which are recalled by one of the characters in Marina Warner's novel In a Dark Wood, bring to light the theme of this year's Literature in English Symposium: Travelling in space and time.
The idea of a journey is inherently connected with changing places and movement, but, through reading, we can traverse space and time, continents and cultures, whilst remaining static.

I am looking for panelists to fill out a session for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education Conference in 2012. The panel, which will be sponsored by the Performance Studies Focus Group, will explore the contours of performances that engage in some way with the ideas of nationalism and citizenship. How do people enact belonging to (or separation from) a nation through performances of citizenship? Possible performances may include (but are certainly not limited to):

"The space of our primary perception, the space of our dreams and that of our passions hold within themselves qualities that seem intrinsic: there is a light, ethereal, transparent space, or again a dark, rough, encumbered space; a space from above, of summits, or on the contrary a space from below of mud; or again a space that can be flowing like sparkling water, or space that is fixed, congealed, like stone or crystal."
—Michael Foucault, "Other Spaces"

BETWEEN. PAGE / STAGE. JOHN BERGER. COMPLICITE. 17-19 May 2012. Sopot, Poland

updated: 
Friday, October 21, 2011 - 4:06pm
Institute of English, University of Gdansk, Poland /University of Salzburg, Austria

We invite proposals for papers for an academic conference which will be held in Sopot, Poland, as part of the international literary / theatre festival BETWEEN. This year celebration of the work of John Berger, on the one hand, and Complicite, on the other, will be accompanied with a more general examination of the ever-changing relations between stage and page. We aim to provide an opportunity for a theoretical discussion about the various roles performed by playwrights, directors, producers, actors and stage designers. We want to investigate the ways in which they inspire, reject, transform, disrespect, follow the work of one another. Or, as is the case with John Berger and Complicite, the ways in which writers and theatre collaborate.
