  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

Southwest Graduate English Symposium – 2007
   
   
  "Fili" the "Buster": Political Satire and the Public
   
  From Jonathan Swift to Jon Stewart, political satire evokes visceral responses, whether from love or hate. But why? What is it about this satire that appeals to or repulses the public? Can we distinguish an ethics of political satire, or is it marked by the lack of ethics completely? How should we engage this satire – if we should engage it at all?
   
  This panel seeks papers and presentations that discuss various forms, methods, writers, outlets, responses, and/or refutations of political satire throughout history, from Aristophanes to Steven Colbert.
