Spectacles of Alienation: Deconstructing the Theatrical in Contemporary Culture (deadline 9/30/2012)

updated: 
Monday, June 4, 2012 - 12:28pm
NeMLA (March 21-24, 2013)

This panel explores the tension between the theatrical and the anti-theatrical in contemporary culture. From the increasing ubiquity of performance art in mainstream theatre to the public spectacle of the political protest, this panel solicits papers that asks what role theatre plays in a world that blurs the boundaries between social ritual and performative fiction. We welcome papers that address political performance as well as studies of aesthetic practice in modern theatre. Send abstracts of less than 250 words to LGeddes@adelphi.edu by September 30, 2012.
