Whether he parodied, plagiarized, appropriated, translated, borrowed, or critiqued, Oscar Wilde’s work contains a web of references that vigorously engages with the voices of others. The way Wilde spoke with and through his sources may reveal not only his own influences and allegiances, but also aspects of larger conversations within late Victorian culture involving artistic production, Decadence, theater, journalism, scholarship, poverty, gender issues, sexuality, prison reform, and more.

Through the centuries, humans have often shaped their social life by fictional moments and by taking part in fictional events: carnivals, representations, role plays, society plays, structured and semi-structured collective and singular moments where strictly coded contexts organize specific worlds and cultural dimensions. Play, in its wide acception and in its nature of artificial and coded mechanism, reflects historically the symbolic work by which human societies have elaborated, explained and organized the world.

The Idea of the Shakespearean Actor 

An edited collection

Eds. Sally Barnden, Emer McHugh, and Miranda Fay Thomas 

 

 

 

What comes to mind when we think about the Shakespearean actor, or Shakespearean acting? What do actors past, present, and future consider ‘Shakespearean acting’ to be? Is the idea of the Shakespearean actor helpful, or does it limit and restrict the notion of what Shakespearean performance can be?

Call For Papers – ReFocus: The Films of David Mamet

We are seeking abstracts of 250-500 words for essays to be included in a book-length anthology on David Mamet to appear in late 2022. We have received a number of strong proposals already, but looking for a few more to add to the volume’s lineup. The intended scope of the work is to analyze Mamet’s unique position as an artist of note in both the theatre and the cinema, as well as his very specific ideas about dramatic structure, performance style, and economical visual storytelling. It will argue, for the first time, that Mamet’s film work is an essential, but underappreciated dimension of his artistic career.

Shakespeare Seminar 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, June 15, 2021

In Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, the playwriting Earl of Oxford looks on from the galleries of the Globe as a performance of his/Shakespeare’s Henry V whips up a large crowd of groundlings, just as the Earl had intended it. Earlier the Earl had already enthused over a match of tennis about the possibilities of theatre – “That’s power.” This year’s Shakespeare Seminar seeks to discuss the countless ways in which Shakespeare, his works, early modern culture as well as later performances of Shakespeare’s works are political or have been politicised. To what extent can his plays be seen to endorse certain power politics? Are politics in Shakespeare ultimately a question of genre?
