Empathy as Being Human in American Drama

updated: 
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - 12:38pm
Modern Language Association and American Theatre and Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Papers will consider how American theatre and drama of any period addresses empathy as part of the human experience. What notions of empathy are sedimented into traditional form(s) and/or by what practices do American plays re-humanize compassion for “the other?” Do American plays invite us to recognize “the other” in ourselves? How might empathy, compassion, and humanism help us to ask new questions regarding American theatre’s past, present, and future - such as how American plays refashion Classical ideas about dramatic catharsis? Conversely, panelists might pursue lines of inquiry, Brechtian or otherwise, which ask readers and audiences to consider a politicized theatrical “awakening” as an empathetic act.

Call for essay proposals on teaching comic texts

Bev Hogue/MLA
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

When comedy dominates popular culture so thoroughly that it’s difficult to distinguish spoofs from truths, when identities and relationships form and fumble on a foundation of comic memes, and when the powerful and the powerless wield comedy alternately as weapon or shield, it’s time for the academy to take comedy seriously. Teaching Comic Texts, edited by Bev Hogue, will examine how comic texts of many types can be deployed in classrooms, either as a topic of literary or cultural study or as a window into understanding other fields. In addition to exploring historical and theoretical contexts, essays in the volume will provide practical insights for teaching comic texts in a variety of disciplines.

Southeast Asian travelogues and global Asia

This laboratory considers the ways in which travelogues by Southeast Asians articulated the concept of inter-Asian connections, thus prefiguring the term ‘global Asia.’ Examples include the study of early modern India and Southeast Asia by Chinese-language Nanyang (South Seas) historians in 1950s Singapore, as reflected in their travel memoirs, as well as the Malaccan writer and translator Munsyi Abdullah’s Bahasa chronicles of his voyages to Mecca and northern Malaysia in the late nineteenth century. We are interested in papers that engage in the following topics:
