"Reading Paratext: the Economies of 19th-Century Play Publishing" Due 5/30 (Conference 11/11)

Thursday, May 5, 2011 - 10:31pm
American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR)

This alternative-format session is a contemplative "show and tell" in which panelists discuss the same 4 examples of 19th century playscript paratext, the "extra" printed matter around the playtext: title-page, catalogue, advertisement, and character list. Exploring how paratext can open new angles on cultural and economic contexts, the session borrows the model of historical-structural scrutiny in Gerard Genette's influential study, Paratexts, for the case of playscripts, and builds on studies of the intersections of theatre and publishing (J.S. Peters, D.S. Kastan, W.B. Worthen).

Corporate Cultures: Contemporary Economies of Cultural Performance

Conveners: Eero Laine, Carly Griffin Smith, Peter Zazzali

Corporate interest in the cultural marketplace has created a complex network of distribution and consumption in the global economy. This has become increasingly apparent in the fields of theatre and performance; from the Disneyfication of Broadway, to political rallies sponsored by media companies, to performances of individuality on social networking sites, live and mediatized corporate cultural performances are expanding the field of cultural production to accommodate increasingly diverse interests.

Bullying and the Abuse of Power

Call for Papers
Bullying is a global problem. Whether it takes place in the schoolyard; the board room; the corridors of academe; a detention centre for alleged terrorists; a government office, or cyber space; and whether it involves insult, physical assault or manipulation of the environment with the intention of making another person's life intolerable, bullying involves the abuse of power. Everyone is affected by it, whether directly or indirectly.

This panel invites papers that explore the role of one or more of the five senses either as themes in the plays of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries, or as features in dramatic performance. Topics may include, but are not limited to, histories/theories of sensation; representations of the senses and early modern phenomenology; sensory mediation between actors and audience; visual and other sensory "cultures"; the senses and affect; the senses and the body politic; sensory hierarchies and gender, class, racial or ethnic difference. Consideration of the "internal" senses (e.g., memory, reason, imagination) as well as the "external" senses of vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch are welcome.
