The Southeastern Renaissance Conference (SRC) invites submissions for presentation at our 78th Annual Meeting, which will be hosted by Duke University and held October 15-16, 2021 in Durham, North Carolina. SRC 2021 will have a hybrid design, meaning the conference will meet both virtually and in-person on the Duke University campus. Papers can be on any aspect of Renaissance art, literature, history, philosophy, music, or culture, but we particularly encourage approaches to the visual and visual culture in the Renaissance.
As Anne Washburn will be in attendance at the 44th Comparative Drama Conference, there will be a panel dedicated to her plays.
The conference does not require any specific focus, but some possible topics are:
Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play and other post-apocalyptic plays/works
Washburn’s interest in popular culture in her plays (for example, The Simpsons in Mr. Burns, her adaption of The Twilight Zone)
Washburn’s contribution to the growing number of plays about Trump or inspired by Trump (Shipwreck)
Washburn in dialogue with other playwrights

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.

Contemporary Latinx writers, visual artists, dancers, and performance artists enact, embody, cross, and defy multiple borders – those of nation, gender, race, language, climate, species, among others – in their work. In doing so they often draw on indigenous and other inherited forms of cultural expression, reclaiming and resignifying them in the process. The tension between the desire to belong to a rooted community and the longing to break away from a prescriptive collective is a hallmark of Latinx expression on various borders – ranging from the Chihuahuan desert to the Massacre River.

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.
