Please submit 200-300 word abstracts describing a specific example of your use of a modernist text and/or concept in the writing classroom.

We are especially interested in papers about irregular conceptions of racialized/black time, such as those that draw on ideas of absurdity or abstractionism to discuss race as it relates to time and phenomenological inquiry, the staging of temporal stasis or acceleration, and questions of audience and presentness, duration, or movement. We welcome presentations about African American expressive practices, but also those that focus on works by artists belonging to other racialized communities.

Sunday, March 1, 2020

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED: 1 MARCH 2020!!!

The fiftieth anniversary of the death of the eminent Polish philosopher and humanist Roman Ingarden in 2020 is an occasion to launch an international academic debate on his philosophical legacy. Above all, however, it is a unique opportunity to initiate an international debate on current trends in contemporary philosophy. The main aim of the organisers is therefore to furnish an international group of researchers with a convenient space for a free and creative exchange of thoughts, ideas, and views.

The Parliament of the Republic of Poland, convinced of the uniqueness of the work and attitude of the philosopher, established 2020 as the Year of Roman Ingarden.

Persistence in American Drama

updated: 
Monday, January 27, 2020 - 4:18pm
American Theatre and Drama Society & Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 9, 2020

This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays, live performances, masters, or movements in American drama and theatre from any period offer strategies for persistence in an age of mechanical reproduction. How do American plays model, operationalize, and/or resist persistence? Why and how do some theatrical voices persist in the national discourse amid marginalization? For example, papers may wish to consider persistence in American drama within Benjaminian, or other, theoretical context(s) regarding the work of art in an age of mechanical reproduction or live performance’s “aura” in a digital age.
