Empathy as Being Human in American Drama

updated: 
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - 12:38pm
Modern Language Association and American Theatre and Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Papers will consider how American theatre and drama of any period addresses empathy as part of the human experience. What notions of empathy are sedimented into traditional form(s) and/or by what practices do American plays re-humanize compassion for “the other?” Do American plays invite us to recognize “the other” in ourselves? How might empathy, compassion, and humanism help us to ask new questions regarding American theatre’s past, present, and future - such as how American plays refashion Classical ideas about dramatic catharsis? Conversely, panelists might pursue lines of inquiry, Brechtian or otherwise, which ask readers and audiences to consider a politicized theatrical “awakening” as an empathetic act.

#UsToo: Intersectional Approaches to Subversion and Resistance

March 23, 2019

Subversion and resistance have become two main preoccupations for our current Western society, where social media movements like #MeToo and #BlackLivesMatter are empowering some who have routinely been silenced in a variety of ways to “speak out” against their oppressors. Throughout the recent history of civilizations, dominant racial, sexed/gendered, linguistic, and religious power structures have discouraged and/or impeded oppressed peoples from speaking out; nevertheless, they have persisted.
