Shakespeare and the Closure of Theatres

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 11:23am
Gabriel Egan / De Montfort University
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 22, 2021

A one-day international online conference on 22 April 2021

The English Research Institute at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a one-day international conference to reflect on closure of theatres in Shakespeare's time and our own.

It is well known that the theatres of Shakespeare's time repeatedly had to close as part of sensible precautions against the spread of the most serious communicable disease of the day: the plague. To stop the disease spreading, early moderns had to practise social distancing; without it a playgoer might bring home from the theatre more than just new ideas and ways of speaking.

Reminder: Edited volume: “Trans Identities in the French media” - Call for abstracts

updated: 
Tuesday, January 12, 2021 - 11:23am
Dr Romain Chareyron
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 31, 2021

As a preamble to this call for abstracts, we want to specify that we are using the terms “transgender” and “trans identities” as umbrella terms for people whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth. Our use of “transgender” or “trans identities” thus encompasses a variety of experiences within and outside the gender binary, and a range of expressions, as trans individuals pursue many different options (medical changes, clothing, make-up, etc.) to bring their appearances into alignment with their gender identity, or may choose not to.

Films do not exist in a vaccum: they are almost always conceived produced, distributed and consumed within specific economic and social contexts.Film is now an integral part of our culture. What is it about films that attract us so much? Why do we enjoy films so much? Why indeed should we study films? It is not only fascinating to look at how films are made or even constructed but how they affect us is also a seminal question.

Posthuman Drag (Edited Collection)

updated: 
Sunday, January 10, 2021 - 10:40am
Kai Prins (University of Wisconsin-Madison, United States) and Florian Zitzelsberger (University of Passau, Germany)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, March 15, 2021

Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

However, there are other films, such as Dragonslayer (1981), Reign of Fire (2002), Dragonheart (1996), and the How to Train Your Dragon series (2010-2019), and numerous adult and children’s literature series that feature dragons.
