Conference theme: “Acting, Roles, and Stages”

Panel description:

In the 400 years between Macbeth and Harry Potter, witches and magic have become more appealing and less frightening in presentations in literature, drama, and film. How can we understand this shift in contemporary culture? This panel seeks to examine images of magic and witchcraft in all forms of media, especially on the stage or in film.

Feel free to email me with any questions or concerns. We look forward to your submission.

Note: The PAMLA Conference, held over the November 9-11, 2018 weekend at lovely Western Washington University in idyllic Bellingham, Washington, is a broad conference for scholars of a wide variety of literary, cultural, or media topics. There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself.

Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions.
