NeMLA 2020: The Classical Classroom: Learning and Literature in Antiquity and Beyond

updated: 
Monday, August 12, 2019 - 11:20am

The English word “school” derives from the Greek word scholia, which may also be translated as “leisure.” It is perhaps because of this association between school and leisure that education in Greece and Rome was not confined to the schoolroom but was present in all aspects of Classical life, including its literature. The earliest examples of Greek literature, the poetry of Homer and Hesiod, were written not only to entertain but to teach, while the audiences of Classical theatre were directed to learn from the plays that they watched. Subsequent Greco-Roman literary works frequently emphasized the educational progress of their characters.

Dependent Stages: Knowing in Shakespeare (NeMLA 2020)

updated: 
Monday, June 10, 2019 - 12:18pm
John F. Maune / NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

A playwright has to build their story within their allotted two hours of stage traffic. We are taken on a guided ride from which we glimpse what the playwright chooses, forming our layers of knowledge through which we are manipulated. Often we are privy to the internal thoughts of a character which contrast with their public utterances: e.g., Rosalind/Ganymede, Angelo, or Richard III. Our prescient view makes Macduff's seemingly banal inquiry about his wife and children emotive fire. Our own knowing is challenged just by taking in a play as we know it is not real, yet we embrace the illusion.

International Conference on London Studies23 November 2019 – London, UKorganised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

Since its beginnings, London has been regarded as the epitome of progress and advancement even in times of profound crisis and discord, exerting the charm of the vast setting that concentrates most, if not all, human experiences. From ancient Londinium to the 21st-century metropolis, the ever expanding urban settlement has emerged as a complex heterogeneous entity forging a particular code of conduct governed by imagination and originality, talent and vision that generate almost endless significations of the self.

17-18 August 2019 – London, UKorganised by London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”. 

Theater, Diplomacy, and Politics

Wednesday, May 1, 2019 - 2:46pm
PAMLA 117th Annual Conference, San Diego, Nov 14-17th, 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019

This session aims at reflecting on the interrelation between theater, performance, diplomacy, and politics. Since theater became theater, plays and performances have reflected, reacted, rejected, denounced, and embraced political turmoil. This panel welcomes papers presenting an interdisciplinary or theoretically grounded analysis of the ways in which theater and/or theatrical audiences react to political turmoil and/or feed institutional discourses that endorse National politics. The multifarious nature of theater escapes unidirectional readings and categorizations: performers, directors, and the very nature of a performance's dialogic form often complicates the way in which jokes, comedy, and meaning are endorsed.
