Global Shaw

This roundtable celebrates the diversity of Bernard Shaw's plays. Through his iconoclastic stances on issues like war, gender and class inequality, and income distribution, Shaw and his works have garnered international attention for over a century. His talky but humorous dialogue inverts social mores to focus on human rights that transcend borders. Participants can consider particular plays, Shavian characters, or suggest why Shaw is a global figure whose works engender fresh interpretations. 250 word abstracts by 9/30/13 to: ellen.dolgin@dc.edu

UPDATE Staging the New Woman: Bernard Shaw, Suffrage, and Theatre as Activism

updated: 
Thursday, August 1, 2013 - 2:47pm
Ellen Dolgin/NeMLA (Northeast Modern Language Association)

Sarah Grand's essays on the woman question published in the North American Review in 1894 coined the phrase 'new woman': Shaw created a series of characters and 'unwomanly' women. Actress/activists like Elizabeth Robins and Cicely Hamilton worked with Shaw and wrote their own feminist plays. This panel will examine the audience impact of these plays. 250 word abstracts to:
Ellen Dolgin by 9/30/13.
NeMLA will be in Harrisburg, Apr 3-6, 2014.
