Not Altogether Feste: Shakespeare's Indirect Engagements with "Foolery"

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

Paper abstracts needed for PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) Conference Special Session on Shakespeare:

Shakespeare’s plays abound in fools direct, but the language, gesture, and attitude of “foolery” run through his work even aside from the antics of characters such as Feste, Lear’s Fool, or Touchstone. This panel will concentrate on moments in Shakespeare that are not so much driven by the playwright’s most famous practitioners of the fool’s trade, but rather subtly informed and structured by that trade and by the perspective it affords.

deadline for submissions:

From abolitionist literature to antiwar painting, from documentary photography to committed filmmaking, the arts have been tools of resistance to dominant ideologies. Artistic practices provide people with a means of dissent in democratic and/or authoritarian societies. Under the cover of visual or poetic metaphors, artists imagine alternative realities that can be read as arts of resistance. The world has witnessed in the postwar era a proliferation of artistic trends, a constant re-evaluation of what constitutes a work of art, a multiplicity of experimentations and explorations, not to mention an ever-increasing diversity of media available to express the artist’s ideas.

Performance Research, special issue: "On Dark Ecologies"

updated: 
Thursday, April 4, 2019 - 4:01pm
Performance Research
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 6, 2019

Timothy Morton describes dark ecology as ‘ecological awareness, dark-depressing. Yet ecological awareness is also dark-uncanny. And strangely it is dark-sweet.’ The concept of dark ecology represents a crucial intervention in the current moment of political conservatism and climate change denial and enables a focused exploration of a wide range of issues relating to performance and ecology. Human activity on the planet is responsible for a number of ecological and political dilemmas, including (but not limited to) global climate change, pollution, leaking pipelines, fragmentation of ecosystems, diminishing natural resources and nuclear meltdowns.

Some sixty years since his passing, Oscar Hammerstein II remains one of the towering figures of the American musical theatre.

Saturday, May 25, 2019

August Wilson’s plays are powerful in their ability to center marginalized histories through performance and language. With the recent release of Denzel Washington’s award-winning film production of Fences (2016), and the award-winning Broadway production of Jitney (2016-2017), there has been renewed focus and interest in not only Wilson’s work, but also the Hill District, where Wilson lived and where all but one of his plays are set.
