Thursday, July 7, 2011 - 9:25pm
Ars Identitatis, Cultural Research Association

Deadline for Abstract submission: 25 July. Proceedings will be published, after peer-reviewing process.
With the development of the contemporary communicating tools, contemporary society seems to be marked by a rapid flow of events and ideas that appear and disappear from the memory of a relatively young individual as fast as they appear. This atmosphere of rapid exchange of hot news and new trends in fashion, ways of life, etc. tends to affect even the most traditional societies. Accordingly, identities tend to be shaped in relation to contemporary "idols" that seem always innovative. However, at the same time iconic figures of the past still dominate contemporary mentalities, but sometimes only as symbols for the perpetual quest for novelty.

[UPDATE] Special Session Topic "Seriously Different: Playing the Foreign in Early Modern Drama" November 3-6 St. Louis, Missouri

updated: 
Wednesday, July 6, 2011 - 9:47am
2011 Midwest MLA Annual Convention “Play…No, Seriously”

People and commodities from abroad played a vital role in Renaissance London's urban scene, and their influence made their way into the era's theaters as well. The panel aims to explore how early modern dramas played with the foreign. How are foreign people, texts, and commodities represented in the Renaissance theater? How do these dramas play with the notion of foreigness, and to what effect? Papers can explore playhouse invocations, appropriations, and exploitations of the foreign, as well as ways in which early modern drama invited audience members to lay claim to the foreign.
