CharlOz--an interdisciplinary festival celebrating Oz

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:31pm
UNC Charlotte
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 17, 2023

At this three-day festival, writers, scholars, collectors, and fans will explore The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Written in 1900, Baum's fairy tale incorporated timeless life lessons, and his stories were ahead of their time.

As Oz magic continues far beyond Baum's lifetime, we benefit from fresh Oz interpretations in visual, performing, and literary art. Works like The Wiz, Wicked, Dorothy Must Die, and Amy Chu and Janet K. Lee's Sea Sirens reflect changes in American culture, while incorporating the non-traditional gender roles and diverse characters that Baum ingrained in Oz.

Proposals accepted February 10, 2023, and November 17, 2023

Early European Puppetry Studies Conference

updated: 
Thursday, February 2, 2023 - 3:25pm
Yale University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2023

From moving statues to artificial animals to marionette performances, puppetry seems to have appeared in every sector of medieval and early modern European society. Jointed religious figures illustrated the liturgy, while dragon effigies processed through cities on feast days, and popular and courtly audiences enjoyed puppet shows of legendary and historical events. Despite the ubiquity of medieval and early modern puppets in Europe, scholarly consideration of these performing objects is often limited to case studies. Consideration of “puppetry” as a particular form with its own norms and commonalities is also uncommon, due in part to the marginal position of puppetry in Western culture.
