“T. S. Eliot: Identity / Politics”

The phrase “identity politics” has become as highly charged as the phrase “politically correct”—more often deployed today as an invitation to attack or defend some group or form of affiliation. For the 2020 MLA in Seattle, the International T. S. Eliot Society will sponsor a panel that recognizes the power of the phrase and the importance of all that it points toward, but we intend to avoid the merely reactive, accusatory and defensive postures that often attend its use.

Proposed Special Session for MLA 2020 in Seattle (Jan. 9-12)

The upcoming 2020 MLA Conference is being held in Seattle, Jimi Hendrix's hometown, 50 years after his death in 1970.

To mark this meeting, we welcomes proposals about the significance of Hendrix and his music to cultural and literary studies, including how his legacy continues to infuse and inspire artists, writers, and scholars. We are especially interested in papers that tie his music to larger movements of black expression, such as blues traditions, black radical aesthetics, or the Black Arts Movement, as well as other innovative analyses inspired by affect theory and performance studies.

Empathy as Being Human in American Drama

updated: 
Wednesday, January 23, 2019 - 12:38pm
Modern Language Association and American Theatre and Drama Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, March 1, 2019

Papers will consider how American theatre and drama of any period addresses empathy as part of the human experience. What notions of empathy are sedimented into traditional form(s) and/or by what practices do American plays re-humanize compassion for “the other?” Do American plays invite us to recognize “the other” in ourselves? How might empathy, compassion, and humanism help us to ask new questions regarding American theatre’s past, present, and future - such as how American plays refashion Classical ideas about dramatic catharsis? Conversely, panelists might pursue lines of inquiry, Brechtian or otherwise, which ask readers and audiences to consider a politicized theatrical “awakening” as an empathetic act.
