CFP: CAPTIVITY NARRATIVES IN LITERATURE AND FILM

The 28th Annual Meeting of the SW/TX PCA/ACA
February 14â€"17, 2007
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Albuquerque, New Mexico

Rowlandson may have set a classroom standard for captivity narratives in
American literature but there are other stories to be considered.

In addition to those captured by Native Americans, slave narratives also
tell stories of life in captivity. And, captivity narratives are not limited to
an American tradition; many folk and fairy tales preceded them in other
cultures.

MP Feminist International Journal is seeking submissions for its
Fall 2006 issue on the theme "Religion, Politics and the Great
Pumpkin". In the comic strip "Peanuts", the character Linus once
said "There are three things I have learned never to discuss with
people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin." In this issue,
we'd like to talk about the great taboo subjects. Religion,
spirituality, politics, and other taboo subjects, such as women
and money, are welcomed. The most important thing we'll be looking
for in these submissions is that they challenge taboos and explore
the subject intelligently and uniquely. We are primarily seeking

  "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.
