"Reading Paratext: the Economies of 19th-Century Play Publishing" Due 5/30 (Conference 11/11)

updated: 
Thursday, May 5, 2011 - 10:31pm
American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR)

This alternative-format session is a contemplative "show and tell" in which panelists discuss the same 4 examples of 19th century playscript paratext, the "extra" printed matter around the playtext: title-page, catalogue, advertisement, and character list. Exploring how paratext can open new angles on cultural and economic contexts, the session borrows the model of historical-structural scrutiny in Gerard Genette's influential study, Paratexts, for the case of playscripts, and builds on studies of the intersections of theatre and publishing (J.S. Peters, D.S. Kastan, W.B. Worthen).

3rd Global Conference
Bullying and the Abuse of Power

Thursday 3rd November – Saturday 5th November 2011

Call for Papers
Bullying is a global problem. Whether it takes place in the schoolyard; the board room; the corridors of academe; a detention centre for alleged terrorists; a government office, or cyber space; and whether it involves insult, physical assault or manipulation of the environment with the intention of making another person's life intolerable, bullying involves the abuse of power. Everyone is affected by it, whether directly or indirectly.

6th Global Conference
The Erotic

Wednesday 9th November – Friday 11th November 2011
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Papers
Mapping the field of the erotic is a complex and frustrating endeavour; as something which permeates lived experience, interpersonal relationships, intellectual reflection, aesthetic tastes and sensibilities, the erotic is clearly multi-layered and requires a plethora of approaches, insights and perspectives if we are to better to understand, appreciate and define it.

Extremity and Excess: An Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Conference

8th + 9th September 2011
University of Salford, UK

This conference seeks to explore ideas of extremity and excess through the full range of disciplines in the arts, media and social sciences.

To deem something extreme or excessive is to place oneself in a position of implied moderation, and suggests an affiliation with other concepts such as temperance, discipline, familiarity, normality, balance, proportionality, sufficiency and rectitude. The extreme and the excessive, on the other hand, can be characterised as what is disproportionate, intemperate, unbalanced, uncontrolled, abnormal, undisciplined, radical and Other.
