  Faith and the Body: Victorian Evangelicals
   
  "Occasionally peeping inside the leaves to see that Venus's arm was not broken, [Sue] entered with her heathen load into the most Christian city in the country by an obscure street running parallel to the main one, and round a corner to the side door of the establishment to which she was attached. Her purchases were taken straight up to her own chamber, and she at once attempted to lock them in a box that was her very own property; but finding them too cumbersome she wrapped them in large sheets of brown paper, and stood them on the floor in a corner." – Thomas Hardy, Jude the Obscure, 1895

  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

  "Fili" the "Buster": Political Satire and the Public
   
  From Jonathan Swift to Jon Stewart, political satire evokes visceral responses, whether from love or hate. But why? What is it about this satire that appeals to or repulses the public? Can we distinguish an ethics of political satire, or is it marked by the lack of ethics completely? How should we engage this satire – if we should engage it at all?
   
  This panel seeks papers and presentations that discuss various forms, methods, writers, outlets, responses, and/or refutations of political satire throughout history, from Aristophanes to Steven Colbert.
