A Family Matter: A Study of August Wilson’s Plays

August Wilson was a man of vision. While Wilson was committed to portraying the “richness and resilience of the twentieth-century black American life through the medium of drama,”[1] he also set the stage for all Americans to examine their purpose and place in society. In addition to his stage portrayals, Wilson also presented his theories in his lectures such as, “The Ground on which I Stand,” where he identified himself as a “race man.” This focus brings up the question: How are his views on family matters presented in his lectures compared to those depicted in his plays?

Sean O'Casey beyond Irish Nationalism, Louisville Conference

updated: 
Tuesday, June 6, 2017 - 9:17pm
Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture since 1900
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 1, 2017

Since the plays of Sean O'Casey are ripe for analysis beyond historical/new historical readings that examine them in light of Irish nationalism, I am seeking abstracts for a possible panel on O'Casey for the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900 (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com/) on February 22-24, 2018.  O'Casey's work, both that which focuses on the years just before and after Irish independence and that written during his years in England, offers varied resources for scholarship from the perspectives of colonialism/postcolonialism, Marxist theory, and gender analysis.

One way of telling the story of feminism is to tell it as a story of protest: protest against, protest for, protest within. In this issue, we invite contributors to reflect on the histories, presents, and futures of protest through a feminist lens.

From social media’s ‘food porn’, reality television and culinary pop-ups to concept-restaurants and the internationalisation of local cuisines. Arguably, menus have recently become a privileged medium for cultural transfer and appropriation, but food has long been both the signifier and transmitter of emotion, identity, ideology, belonging and wealth.
