From Natalie Zemon Davis in The Return of Martin Guerre and Alain Corbin in Life of an Unknown to Kiera Lindsey in The Convict’s Daughter and John Glavin in After Dickens: Reading, Adaptation, and Performance, a small number of scholars have proposed new ways of reading the past and writing social and cultural history, microhistory, biography, and literary criticism. In the final chapter of Victorian Honeymoons: Journeys to the Conjugal, the literary critic Helena Michie juxtaposes two modes of writing: a painstakingly annotated excerpt from a nineteenth-century woman’s diary and a fictional recreation of a moment in that woman’s life based on the record of events and experiences.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented new challenges for the higher education community, including those working with undergraduate researchers. Research teams have responded to the pandemic in some exciting and creative ways that have the potential to benefit all engaged in undergraduate research during disruptive events such as pandemics, earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes.

Original research articles (2,000–3,500 words) and vignettes (300 words) are invited for Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research (SPUR) that discuss how individuals, disciplines, departments, campuses, and communities have adapted during these events.  Topics and questions of interest include the following:

CFP – Beyond Borders: Empires, Bodies, Science Fictions

11th-12th September 2020

Keynote Speakers: Dr Nadine El-Enany and Florence Okoye

 

A border, like race, is a cruel fiction
Maintained by constant policing, violence
Always threatening a new map.

from Wendy Trevino, 'Brazilian is Not a Race'

 

As a result of the ongoing crisis this conference will have to take place online, with the possibility of some optional in-person elements. We think now more than ever is a time to question the role of borders in our lives and so we want to proceed with this conversation. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to get in touch.

Texas Theatre Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 5, 2020

The Texas Theatre Journal is accepting submissions for book reviews its Special 2020 Volume—“Theatre in Crisis”—responding to COVID-19 for 2020. Published annually by the Texas Educational Theatre Association, our mandate is to feature the work of graduate students whenever possible (so please share far and wide with your graduate students—and other colleagues too!). 

REVIEW REQUEST

Due to the unique nature of this volume (and the disruption to the publishing supply chain), I am forgoing the traditional “list of books received” and instead asking potential reviewers to pitch a book to review that fits into this “Theatre in Crisis” idea, in broad or unique ways.

The trickster figure, agent of disruption and change, has had numerous and diverse manifestations in literature, film, and popular culture. Joseph Campbell characterized the trickster as having “a very special property…he always breaks in…to trip up the rational situation. He’s both a fool and someone who’s beyond the system.

This panel is dedicated to discussing Eastern/Russian Orthodox traditions, morality, culture, hagiography, iconography, mysticism, practices, monasticism, and beliefs as they pertain to (or appear within) Russian and Slavic literature. Discussions of religious influence are critical to the study of many of the greatest Russian authors and poets--Dostoevsky and Tolstoy amongst many others. Still, little scholarship has explored how both Dostoevsky and Tolstoy had extraordinarily different views of the Orthodox faith and of Christianity in general, and how this might have influenced their existential perspectives of life and death, meaning and purpose, as well as their works.
