‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

CFP // Games and Literary Theory Collection

We are soliciting proposals for a collection of essays at the intersection of game studies and literary theory.

This coming year will mark the fourth meeting of the International Conference Series on Games and Literary Theory at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Having hosted the previous two meetings, we have witnessed a rich diversity of scholarship claiming this interdisciplinary field. Yet, we have also noted in the breadth of approaches a lack of a shared disciplinary history or critical archive.

NeMLA 2017: Literary Form and its Limit: Marxism, Poststructuralism, and Description

The legacies of both Marxism and poststructuralism have loomed large in literary studies in recent years. The ongoing publication of the late seminars of both Foucault and Derrida, as well as the long awaited translation of Althusser’s On The Reproduction Of Capitalism suggests a sustained interest in such methodologies, while what has been called the “descriptive turn”—which encompasses practices as disparate and ill-defined as Latourian Actor-Network Theory, Morettian “distant reading”, and Heather Love’s revival of “thin description”—has attempted to caution scholars away from symptomatic reading, ideology critique, and broadly “deconstructive” critical practice.

Beyond Monogamy: Opening out Adaptation Studies

For a host of reasons, the basic structure of an adaptation study has been, historically, a one-to-one comparison of source and adaptation. And for a host of reasons, this has proven (potentially) problematic. Not that the one-to-one study, or singleton, can’t be well done, productive, and downright brilliant. Clearly, it can. But as adaptation studies moves toward conceiving and theorizing adaptation according to postmodern concepts of intertextuality, the singleton becomes less dependable and productive in developing forward-moving directions, strategies, and theories for the field.

Rethinking Early Modern Subjectivity (NeMLA 2017)

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.

Philosophical Ruptures: The Counter-hegemonic Mission of Africana Literature

The literary productions of eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century African diasporic thinkers are widely acknowledged as the discursive corrective to African enslavement and colonization under Western hegemonic domination. Olaudah Equiano’s, David Walker’s, and Frederick Douglass’s works emphasize the significance of ancient African history and agitate for the abolition of chattel slavery; in the early twentieth-century, W.E.B. Du Bois’s Black Reconstruction (1935) and C.L.R. James’s The Black Jacobins (1938) contest the Eurocentricity of traditional Marxian thought by highlighting the import of enslaved African labor to the development of the modern Western capitalism.

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.
