CFP: Masculinity and Theater (4/15/08; MMLA Minneapolis 11/13/08-11/16/08)
Papers welcome for the permanent panel Gender Studies: Male, on the theme of "Masculinity and
Theater," held during the Midwest Modern Language Association conference in Minneapolis,
Minnesota, Nov. 13-16. Deadline: April 15.
>From the all-male public stages of Greek and Elizabethan drama to contemporary depictions of
male identity in the plays of Neil LaBute and David Mamet, representations of men and masculinity
on the Western stage have reflected, celebrated, and critiqued social constructions of manhood.
This panel seeks papers on the representation of male identity and masculinity in theater, drama,
and performance, including plays, solo performance, musical theater, dance, opera, experimental
theater, and other theatrical forms, from any period and/or traditions. Topics and approaches
include, but are not limited to, historical and/or theoretical treatments of men and misogyny, race
and masculinity, queer masculinities, etc.
Please send your 250-word abstract by April 15, 2008 to chair, Samuel Park, Columbia Coll.
Chicago, spark_at_colum.edu; please cc abstracts to secretary, Josep M. Armengol, SUNY Stony
