Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton swept the theatre awards season of 2016 for its inventive mix of hip hop, history, political relevance, and casting choices. In the avalanche of accolades that the show was awarded, the critical discourse is only starting to emerge that demonstrates how the show has pioneered many areas, yet does have weaknesses that underpin the framework of the musical. This panel seeks to evaluate the show, the ways it has resonated with audiences, and consider the critical conversation developing outside of traditional theatre scholars. Some possible topics to consider involve the show’s depiction of women, perspectives on U.S.

Whenever someone tells me that they “hate” Kanye West I immediately ask them if they are familiar with his music, most of the time the answer is an emphatic: “no!” Granted, West seems to almost fetishize this self-created divide between his abrasive and confrontational public persona, and his introspective and heartfelt musical lyrics. However, this is due to his insistence on having both his public appearances and music act as provocations that actively question norms around masculinity, the black experience in America, and the life of an artist.

"[O]ther worlds than these": The Multi-Media Multi-verse of Adapting Stephen King

“‘Go then. There are other worlds than these’” (King, Gunslinger, 266). These are the final words of one of Jake Chambers’s lifetimes in Stephen King’s 1982 novel The Gunslinger, Volume I in his Dark Tower series. Throughout the subsequent seven volumes—and other novels—King has continued to develop this “other worlds” concept, also described as “many levels . . . [of] the Tower of all existence” (King, Insomnia, 576). Recently, the metaphor may apply as well to adaptations of King’s work as to the multi-verse of the novels and stories themselves.

The Handmaid’s Tale: Gender, Genre Adaptation – a one-day symposium
Saturday, 30 September, 2017
Film Studies @ Worcester
Jenny Lind Building, University of Worcester

Despite being written over 35 years ago, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale (1985), set in a totalitarian New England where fertile women are kept prisoner in reproductive servitude, has been making headlines in 2017 due to the remarkable Hulu produced television series (screened in the UK on Channel Four). This symposium seeks to bring together diverse scholars for a day of discussion and debate.
