In comes I, says Robbin to Bobbin. There were three Straw Bears and the little one said, rough music! Will the Phantom of the Opera feature in the Scottish play? This cold night will turn us all to fools and morris dancers: hocus pocus, and Faustus must be damned. There were three caskets, and only one contained the liar’s whetstone. Oh yes, there is a doctor to be found at the Hawk’s Well. Out, little spear, if herein thou be! What’s the time, Widow Twankey, at the Common Riding of the Valkyries? A knot, a knot! Waly waly wallflower in the eye of the sun, up and down and around the town. There were three oranges, my true love to see, but ’tis the foul fiend Flibbertigibbet. Surely he is a Puritan, for he has cast out Jack in the Green.

Stages in Transition: South Asia and the Diaspora

 

Hunter College

City University of New York

 

April 29, 2017

 

Theater of South Asia and the diaspora is a rich topic for exploration, particularly in our current political climate, in which questions of cultural identity, citizenship, personal and cultural expression, movement between cultures and geographic borders are all at the forefront of public discourse globally. How do place and space, our understanding of home and belonging come to inflect the theater that we make?

Centuries ago, Aristotle fashioned a term that brought literature and psychology face to face: catharsis (psychological or mental purification of the feelings). From that time onwards, literature and human psyche have been correlated either by various writers, philosophers, critics, or by means of several techniques or movements. Not only was it tragedy that combined the elements of psychology with literary production, it was also novel, poetry, short story and even some psychoanalytical theories that brought psyche and literature together.

Special Section on Soviet and Post-Soviet Shakespeares in The Shakespearean International Yearbook (2019)

We invite contributions for a special section on Soviet and post-Soviet engagements with Shakespearean drama and Shakespeare as a culturally significant figure. We are particularly interested in ideologically influenced performance, translation, literary adaptation, and scholarship. Papers might focus on how Soviet approaches to Shakespeare were influenced by the evolution of cultural policies from 1917 to 1991, or examine treatments of Shakespeare in post-Soviet states from 1991 until the present. Contributors are also encouraged to consider Soviet and post-Soviet Shakespeare in languages other than Russian.

Territory, Politics and Performance in Tudor England

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation.  As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire.  Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.
