Centuries ago, Aristotle fashioned a term that brought literature and psychology face to face: catharsis (psychological or mental purification of the feelings). From that time onwards, literature and human psyche have been correlated either by various writers, philosophers, critics, or by means of several techniques or movements. Not only was it tragedy that combined the elements of psychology with literary production, it was also novel, poetry, short story and even some psychoanalytical theories that brought psyche and literature together.

Special Section on Soviet and Post-Soviet Shakespeares in The Shakespearean International Yearbook (2019)

We invite contributions for a special section on Soviet and post-Soviet engagements with Shakespearean drama and Shakespeare as a culturally significant figure. We are particularly interested in ideologically influenced performance, translation, literary adaptation, and scholarship. Papers might focus on how Soviet approaches to Shakespeare were influenced by the evolution of cultural policies from 1917 to 1991, or examine treatments of Shakespeare in post-Soviet states from 1991 until the present. Contributors are also encouraged to consider Soviet and post-Soviet Shakespeare in languages other than Russian.

The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation.  As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire.  Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.

MLA 2018: Recognition and Identity in Early Modern English Drama How do dress, voice, actions, etc cause a character to be "recognized" (or not recognized) as him/herself or as another in early modern English drama? Is the "recognition" of a character equal to a character's "identity"? How do reading and misreading shape our understanding of the connection between a character's individual "identity" and who he is perceived to be? How is identity and/or recognition read or understood on the early modern English stage? Please submit 250-word abstracts to cms531@nyu.edu by Friday, March 10th, 2017. Thanks!
