Theater, Diplomacy, and Politics

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 2:46pm
PAMLA 117th Annual Conference, San Diego, Nov 14-17th, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019

This session aims at reflecting on the interrelation between theater, performance, diplomacy, and politics. Since theater became theater, plays and performances have reflected, reacted, rejected, denounced, and embraced political turmoil. This panel welcomes papers presenting an interdisciplinary or theoretically grounded analysis of the ways in which theater and/or theatrical audiences react to political turmoil and/or feed institutional discourses that endorse National politics. The multifarious nature of theater escapes unidirectional readings and categorizations: performers, directors, and the very nature of a performance's dialogic form often complicates the way in which jokes, comedy, and meaning are endorsed.

Literature of the American West

As a location on the western edge of the North American West, San Diego is an ideal location for discussions of cinema, drama, prose, and poetry of the region. This panel welcomes proposals that explore, problematize, and/or redefine the West as a construct that emerges throughout various forms of representation with particular interest in topics that deal with the conference theme of "Send In the Clowns." Proposals considering San Diego's particular regional languages and literatures, or proposals more generally addressing literature of the American West are welcome. This panel is the result of an exciting new affiliation between PAMLA and the Western Literature Association (WLA).

This session seeks papers on the relationship between literature and healing, broadly conceptualized.  As theories and practices such as catharsis and bibliotherapy suggest, literature has functioned, over the course of its history, as a source of healing in times of need; “We need elegies,” Countee Cullen writes in the closing line of a poem entitled “Threnody for a Brown Girl.”  The expositions on literature and healing date back to ancient times and continue up to the present:  Apollo is not only the god of poetry but also of medicine; Aristotle’s theory of catharsis portrays how tragedies allow readers to experience extremities in safety, as part of the purification of their soul; D.
