Across Europe, the critical engagement with the history of colonialism and its significant ongoing legacies has gained purchase – not least because of the critique, pressure, and demands of postcolonial intellectuals from, or with ties to, Africa, the Caribbean, and Asia. Matters of postcolonial justice, such as reparations to former European colonies, the restitution of human remains and cultural artefacts, and calls for the removal of national symbols and monuments that reproduce racist ideology have gained increased public attention in recent years.

Science and Fiction Panel Deadline Extended

updated: 
Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 9:53am
MMLA Panel
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

Taking up the MMLA conference theme, “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgängers,” the panel for Science and Fiction seeks proposals engaging the presence of the double in fiction inflected or inspired by science, medicine, or technology; the fields’ theories or methods; or their practitioners. Oftentimes, the double is associated with the horror genre and presented as emblematic of Freud’s ideas about the uncanny, or the unheimlich (unhomely is the literal translation). The term describes the feeling of unease or fear one gets from experiencing something familiar turned uncomfortably strange. Fred Botting, however, notes that horror and science fiction each “give form to a sense of otherness” (Botting, 2008, 131).

Drama and Society 2: Theater as reflecting the “state-of-the-nation”

 

Theater is a uniquely effective venue for artists to comment on the affairs of a nation, responding to the temper of the times. Not only does it function as a public forum for debate, but the variety of tools in its repertoire renders this art form supremely effective in conveying the complexities that such a comment involves.

Drama and Society 1: Theatre’s Clowns and Comic Traditions
