“Dramatic Fictions / Fictional Dramas”
Comparative Drama Conference
Orlando, FL, March 30 – April 1, 2023
Deadline: October 12, 2022
I am organizing a comparative panel that crosses and combines genres: works of fiction that contain plays, playwrights, actors, or dramatic performances; or plays that contain writers, fictional texts, or acts of literary composition. Alternately, presenters may set up intertextual conversations between the work of a playwright and an artist or character from another genre. For instance, I will be presenting a paper on Samuel Beckett and Bartleby the Scrivener. I am seeking two other papers to complete the panel. Only in-person presentations will be considered for this panel.
