 From Euripides’ Bacchae to Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus to Sarah
Kane’s Cleansed bodily dismemberment has proven to be a dramatic trope
which transcends period or cultural distinctions. The 2006 M/MLA drama
panel welcomes submissions which critically address the stakes of
dismemberment in drama. This might take the form of an analysis of a
particular play or a contemporary look at dramatic theories of dismemberment
from Nietzsche’s conception of Dionysian drama to Artaud’s Theatre of
Cruelty. Broader approaches from theories of mimesis to performance studies
which work toward the dismemberment of drama as a genre will also be
considered. Please email submissions of no more than 250 words to Lance
Norman at by March 1, 2006.
