"Animating the Early Modern Stage," ACLA Seminar, July 6-9, 2016, Utrecht This seminar will explore what theater and the performing arts contribute to early modern theories of life, the soul, and autonomy. At a time when European philosophers debated the distinction between material bodies and lively bodies, between organic machines and ensouled beings, artists and performers innovated new techniques for bringing stage objects to life through mechanical or human manipulation. We invite contributions that examine a wide array of techniques for “animation” in theater and the performing arts of the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries, from any national/cultural perspective.

Bibliography Among the Disciplines Conference

The book territorializes and deterritorializes. It binds together materials, technologies, and labor from far and abroad--a letter from Goa, an editor in Rome, Chinese paper, German engravers, Italian leather, English capital--only to be dispersed and reconstituted, from hand to hand, collection to collection, dismembered, reassembled, and reinvented for new audiences in new locations.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable seeks to tackle the vexed yet essential issue of Shakespeare in translation. Panelists are encouraged to approach this in a number of ways, such as direct translation and intercultural adaptation. Papers could discuss a particular translation of a particular play, compare and contrast previous translations, explore a more open adaptation, or discuss the aesthetic, cultural, even political issues at stake when translating Shakespeare. Papers are not restricted to textual translation, as papers on dramatic or cinematic translation and adaptation are also very much welcome.
