The society which organizes production anew on the basis of free and equal association of the producers will put the whole state machinery where it will then belong—into the museum of antiquities, next to the spinning wheel and the bronze ax. —Friedrich Engels

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 15, 2018

Taking this year’s Modernist Studies Association theme of “Graphic Modernism” in a slightly different direction intimated in the title, this panel features graphical analyses of modernism based in a Digital Humanities methodology. One definition for “graphical” is “of or pertaining to a graph,” to data plotted and coordinates mapped. This panel will feature quantitative analyses of modernist culture in an effort to visualize what Raymond Williams might call a “sociology of culture,” the wide-ranging social practices that make culture possible but which are often obscured by the objects themselves.

Shakespeare’s Migrants and Exiles – Shakespeare Across Borders

In Shakespeare’s works characters are frequently banished from court, from the city or their country. Some move voluntary and many make their first appearance with a history of migration. Some yearn for their home, some are glad to escape persecution. Some bemoan the loss of their identity, some embrace a new identity abroad. People are exiled for various reasons, banished from another’s present, from a place, or from memory. Exile may mean a new chance or certain death. Migrants are greeted with hope, with fear, with fierce rejection. In a more abstract sense, Shakespeare’s plays and poems themselves became migrant texts as they were performed by travelling players or otherwise transmitted across time and space.

With their 2016 production of Spring Awakening, Deaf West Theatre was celebrated for their ongoing revolutionary approaches towards musical theatre, putting deaf and hearing actors on stage together, adapting stories and characters in Deaf cultural contexts, and making diversity and accessibility top priorities both on- and off-stage. The production was also the first Broadway show to feature an actor in a wheelchair, Ali Stroker.
