"Bridging the Divide: Medieval and Renaissance Performance and
Periodization"
2006 MLA Convention
Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2006

"Periodization" has often limited the ways in which we define, examine, and
theorize performance. This panel invites papers that consider how medieval
and/or renaissance performance challenges
traditional notions of periodization. Periodization is defined broadly in
this context. Papers might suggest how performance bridges such moments as
ancient to early medieval, the High to Late Middle Ages, Medieval to
Renaissance, or pre- to post-Reformation, but papers that examine fresh
definitions, ideas, and theories of periodization are especially encouraged.

The Louisiana English Journal will be publishing a special issue
commemorating the 2005 hurricanes Katrina and Rita in October 2006. We
are seeking personal stories, poems, before/after pictures, and original
art that relate the experiences of those who were in Louisiana at the
time, whether they were residents, tourists, or students. Those
displaced by the storms are especially encouraged to submit their work.
We also welcome articles or stories from those in or outside of
Louisiana about the effects of these two hurricanes in their communities
and schools, such as the influx of displaced residents and students, and
how they dealt with them.

*Extended Deadline for Abstracts: January 30th, 2006*

Due to the nature of cultural production, both academic and creative,
it is inevitable that particular texts, objects, subjects, cultures,
and concepts will be marginalized or excluded, giving a confusing and
often contradictory cultural landscape to a coherence that is abstract
and problematic. How might we account for the remnants and remainders
that are scattered about our fields of inquiry? How might we begin to
reconceptualize these grounds?
