Resonance and Remembrance: An Interdisciplinary Bell Studies Symposium
The editors of How to Teach a Play: 75 Exercises for the College Classroom (Bloomsbury Methuen Publishers) are seeking submissions of teaching exercises on the 75 most popularly-taught plays at the university level.
How to Teach a Play provides a new generation of teachers with the tools to develop their students’ performative imagination. Grounded in scholarship, each teaching exercise will call attention to the performance elements of a specific play and show how the performative can illuminate the thematic meaning of the script. The collection will consist of exercises that connect close textual analysis with performance.

We invite proposals that engage the following questions and topics:
BECKETT RESEARCH GROUP IN GDAŃSK
The main theme of the University of Gdańsk Samuel Beckett Seminar in 2017 is:
SHORT FORMS IN BECKETT. FRAGMENTS
Samuel Beckett’s prose and drama can pose many difficulties for a reader unfamiliar with their idiosyncrasies. Fragmentariness, or various fragmentary structures, narrative and dramatic alike, can be considered as one tenet of Beckett’s oeuvre, especially of his later works. However, what do we mean when we describe his works in this fashion? What is, for example, the fragmentary narrative of The Unnamable or The Lost Ones? Can we even speak of narrative in the first place, or do we, perhaps, need a redefinition of narrative?
CALL FOR PAPERS: Performing Epic/Epic Performance
