Staging motherhood and mothers in British drama across centuries

Due to the ongoing discussions on the value of family in the contemporary world, the subject of motherhood returned to the forefront of public discourse in Europe and incited new polemics on – as is suggested by rightist politics – the natural drive towards maternity. We wish to broaden the research on motherhood and focus on topics and tropes of motherhood, mothers, maternity, and mothering as shown on stage and presented in published/written British drama.

We invite you to send abstracts on literary/dramatic and linguistic/semantic aspects related to the idea of dramatised motherhood. We are particularly looking for papers on:

IL PARLAGGIO

This section of the academic journal “Sinestesieonline” is open to contributions about theatre and performing arts in all historical ages, forms and variations, in English, Italian and foreign languages.

“Il Parlaggio” is the name created by Gabriele d’Annunzio for the amphitheatre in Vittoriale – a place of empathy, a cradle of emotions, a crossroads of cultures, a connection between antiquity and contemporaneity, an emblem of the “neverending show”.

MLA 2019: Postcolonial Textual Transactions and Critical Reception

updated: 
Friday, February 9, 2018 - 11:17am
MLA Africa since 1990 Forum
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

In his 2001 book, The Postcolonial Exotic: Marketing the Margins, Graham Huggan contends that writers from formerly colonized societies negotiate their marginality and the “realpolitik of metropolitan economic dominance” by providing “exotic registers” and making them “palatable” for “predominantly metropolitan audiences” (viii). This non-guaranteed MLA session organized by The Africa Since 1990 forum invites submissions examining literary texts from the Global South that circulate well beyond their immediate contexts of production. To what extent is this circulation due to the exoticism that Huggan elaborates in his book? What other factors may be at work in the appreciation and appropriation of these works in new environments?
