“Music is the melody whose text is the world.” —Arthur Schopenhauer
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.” — Maya Angelou

Music is integral to our lives. It gives voice to the feelings and thoughts that cannot be spoken. It has been used on battlefields as well as battles for the heart. It can heal and comfort as well as engender anger and hatred. It has been blamed for mass shootings as well as credited for bringing huge crowds together. It can reinforce cultural mores or break the rules. It fosters connections with the sacred and the profane. It is all around us.

Staging Feminist Futures

Special Volume of Frontiers, A Women Studies Journal 41.3 (Feb. 2021): “Staging Feminist Futures”

Special Volume Editor: Kimberly Jew, University of Utah 

Space, energy, temporal fluidity, moving bodies, present voices and affect, witnesses, narrative. The theatrical stage offers a moving, three-dimensional world in which to explore imagined embodiments and emotions, and to momentarily restructure the boundaries of identity, reality and nation. As Jill Dolan argues in her seminal book, Utopian Performance, live performance offers a special power to staged visions of utopian futures through the visceral, action-ready sentiment generated among audience members.

EXTENDED DEADLINE: “Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance" (SCSECS 2019)

updated: 
Monday, November 19, 2018 - 8:38am
Ashley Bender / South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 14, 2018

This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions?

David Henry Hwang's latest work, Soft Power, which is, as he describes it, a play with a musical, had its world premiere in Los Angeles in May of this year.  Undoubtedly, Soft Power, which tells of a love story between a Chinese movie producer and Hillary Clinton, is Hwang's most overt piece of political theatre, written in response to the election of Donald Trump to President.  The David Henry Hwang Society invites asbtract proposals that examine Hwang and his plays in relation to his and their engagement with politics.  In other words, just how political is Hwang as a playwright?

In addition, the David Henry Hwang society invites any proposals that cover Hwang and his works in general.

Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:18am
Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.
