Medieval drama scholars are not new to the idea that reconstructive performance experiments yield valuable information about early dramatic texts. However, with the growing acceptance of practice- and performance-as-research in the wider academy, now is the perfect time to explore the theories and processes of this burgeoning field as it applies to early drama. This session seeks invigorating explorations of the academic opportunities that performance holds. Moving beyond reconstruction, what and how do we learn in performance? What are the particular experiences of an event? How can accidental discoveries open new avenues of learning?
During the last decade, there seems to have been an inflation of heroes and heroines on screen. From anti-heroes to picture perfect ethical heroes, how can we conceive of heroes as symptomatic of our decade's political, literary and ideological discourse? What kind of desire does the hero embody? What does she normalize and what does she conceal?
This panel examines these figures of cinematic apparatus who multiply and appear everyday in new forms.
