Shakespeare in Performance
University of Maine at Farmington May 4-6 2012
Deadline for proposals: 31 January 2012

Shakespeare and performance in all its expressions, with a focus on the tragedies. This includes stage and screen adaptations, but we are also especially interested in papers and proposals for workshops, demonstrations, and non-traditional presentations on previously under-examined Shakespearean performance (musical scores, ballet, puppetry, street theater, digitization, hybridization, and so forth). Papers engaging the intertextualities of play, performance, and reception, source and script, and that are sensitive to the multiplicity of competing interpretations are also encouraged.

[Update]: CFP - The Apocalypse in Literature and Film (October 1, 2011)

The journal _LIT: Literature Interpretation Theory_

Alien invasion, viral outbreak, nuclear holocaust, the rise of the machines, the flood, the second coming, the second ice age—these are just a few of the ways human beings have imagined their "end of days." And someone's Armageddon clock is always ticking—we just dodged Harold Camping's rapture on May 21st of this year, and the Mayan-predicted doomsday of 2012 is just around the corner. In the end, what do we reveal about ourselves when we dream of the apocalypse? What are the social and political functions of these narratives in any given historical period? How do different cultures imagine the apocalypse, and what do these differences reveal? What is particular to the narratological design and content of apocalyptic texts?

**Deadline extended**

This panel will examine eighteenth-century British fiction and the relationship between violence, obscenity and humor. Novelists' use of the obscene joke is a tempered way to suppress the blurring lines of distinction between classes and to maintain hierarchy, a direct response to the changes in society and to the increasing sensitivity to vulgar subjects in polite society. This panel is interested in discovering how authors mobilize social anxiety through violence, obscenity and humor.
