Anthony Ellis, Comparative Drama

Abstracts are invited for a panel exploring drama of any nationality or period from an age-studies perspective. Sponsored by the academic journal Comparative Drama, this panel will be held at the 36th Comparative Drama Conference, hosted by Stevenson University in Baltimore, MD, March 29-31, 2012.

Papers may focus on questions of childhood, middle age, old age, the aging process, or the life course, among other aging-related concepts. While papers may focus on the representation of aging in drama—on the page and onstage—they may also address issues of aging and artistic production (e.g., a playwright's "late style," the way that aging has determined a performer's career, etc.)

It has become apparent with the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and the tenth anniversary of 9/11, that major traumatic events continue to resonate in both the individual and social consciousness - perhaps more in the 21st century than ever before. Remembering, rethinking, reworking, and reimagining are just a few of the ways in which authors and artists, historians and critics, audiences and citizens have explored their own traumatic experiences, as well as the traumatic events that continue to impact larger communities.
