Theatre and Drama Studies Conference - HISTORY and MEMORY

Theatre and Drama Network
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, November 10, 2021

Media, art and literature in the late-twentieth and early twenty-first century have been inundated with the memories and portrayals of wars, upheavals, declarations, political persecutions, colonial struggles and religious/ideological wars and terror acts. The spectacles of the industrial and global world as well as digitalised life, ruthless socio-economic dynamics, widening rich/poor gap, generational discrepancies and pandemics have left lasting marks on the human psyche and fostered art and literature to tackle the stigmas and impacts of the long century on contemporary life. Dystopias and anti-utopias of the modern world also made the past a space for (social, political, artistic) exploration, reconsideration, reclamation and reconciliation.

Iconography and Iconoclasm in Twentieth Century and Contemporary American Poetry

updated: 
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 3:16pm
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 28, 2021

From Langston Hughes’ "Goodbye, Christ" to Gertrude Stein’s "If I Told Him, A Completed Portrait of Picasso," Marie Howe’s Magdalene to Sarah Blake’s Mr. West, cultural icons feature prominently across American poetry from the past century to the present. Now that social media affords endless and immediate access to living icons’ homes, bodies, and vulnerabilities (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic), poetic treatments of icons might offer timely and incisive considerations of iconography in popular culture then and now. What makes us identify with, or feel alienated from, an iconic figure? What challenges exist in depicting realistic and relatable icons in a medium necessitating a degree of craft?

René Pintard in his fundamental study Le libertinage érudit dans la première moitié
du XVIIe siècle already highlighted the difficulty in distinguishing between the
illustration of a sincere fideism and that of a strategic fideism, expressed in order to
disguise otherwise risky affirmations. The authors that Pintard defines as “erudite
libertines” of the seventeenth century, a period when, like everyone else, even
atheists and sceptics died “well confessed and having received Holy Communion”,
were masters of hypocrisy by necessity. The same also went for the thought of the
following century, the century of Reason and the Enlightenment, in which freedom of

Tinakori: Critical Journal of the Katherine Mansfield Society: Special Edition: Pain

updated: 
Thursday, October 7, 2021 - 3:33pm
Katherine Mansfield Society
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, December 12, 2021

This special issue of Tinakori seeks to explore representations of physical and emotional pain in Mansfield’s writings. In her seminal text The Body in Pain, Elaine Scarry suggests that pain defies language to become ‘unrepresentable’, an idea more recently challenged. How does Mansfield represent hurt and pain using the literary conventions of short story form (or verse) as a medium? How is this also communicated in her letters and journals?How do bystanders in Mansfield’s work or life respond to those who suffer in some way? Is pain a source of connection or separation?

Sunday, October 31, 2021

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

Where do we find important archives for the study of the Global Anglophone? How were their materials accumulated and how are they now arranged? What do these collections record, and what do they omit? Who can access them, particularly in this ongoing pandemic season?

This panel invites papers which explore the archives, personal or institutional, that enrich our understanding of literatures in English—and that provide material resources for research and teaching in the rising, disputed discipline of the Global Anglophone. Both established and lesser-known centers of archival study will make for welcome subjects. Papers may examine a whole institution, a particular collection, or even a single document.
