in turn, describe the “biopolitical turn” as “a proliferation of studies, claiming Foucault as an

inspiration, on the relations between ‘life’ and ‘politics.’”

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 20, 2018

We are also interested in work that explores how new behaviors and global networks of power and influence are examining what it means to be American.

American Drama’s Ethical Transactions

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 3:26pm
The American Theatre and Drama Society and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.

MARGIN reads Messy Bodies

Last year, in our end-of-the-year symposium focusing on the afterlife of Ovid in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, we found ourselves confronting surprisingly queer, surprisingly metamorphosed, messy bodies, bodies that frequently demanded decidedly messy methodological engagements, between disciplinary categories or at their margins. With all this in mind, we continue our group exploration of the body with this year’s symposium.
