The 2019 conference seeks papers that investigate our 2019 theme: The Ties that Bind. Topics could range from familial relationships, playwright associations, or the societal bonds that connect Shakespeare's characters. Consideration will also be given to papers dealing with first folio connections in conjunctions with The Book of Will. We welcome unique interpretations of this theme.

An Inclusive Interdisciplinary Project
Papers will consider how American theatre and drama of any period addresses empathy as part of the human experience. What notions of empathy are sedimented into traditional form(s) and/or by what practices do American plays re-humanize compassion for “the other?” Do American plays invite us to recognize “the other” in ourselves? How might empathy, compassion, and humanism help us to ask new questions regarding American theatre’s past, present, and future - such as how American plays refashion Classical ideas about dramatic catharsis? Conversely, panelists might pursue lines of inquiry, Brechtian or otherwise, which ask readers and audiences to consider a politicized theatrical “awakening” as an empathetic act.
This panel invites discussions about the aesthetics, politics, and economics of Romanian cultural works in a transnational dialogue 30 years after the fall of communism.

Un/masking. On a mimetic form
6th Conference of the IDP Mimesis

Textualities of American Drama: What are the textual forms of American drama? Dramatic works produced during the nineteenth century (an age largely dominated by spectacular melodrama) and the early twentieth century (an era that turned imperfectly to dramatic realism) are often studied according to their production histories rather than their circulation as printed play texts. But the publication of dramatic texts was a significant subplot of the expanding publishing industry throughout the United States. How did the making and consumption of plays in print shape the literary status of American drama?
The editors of the journal Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research welcome essays for consideration. Please refer to RECTR’s website for full submission guidelines: rectrjournal.org. General queries and article submissions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research is a peer-reviewed, academic journal published under the auspices of the department of English at Valdosta State University. The journal features scholarship on late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British and European drama and staging. Issues contain articles, theatre reviews, book reviews, and occasional interviews.
From the Nāṭyaśāstra or Aristotle’s Poetics to social media posts or the new online review aggregators, discourses about theater have shaped the course of the art’s evolution, reflecting and influencing aesthetics, modes of production and models of social and political involvement.
The emergence and spread of “practice as”, “practice-led” or “practice-based” research paradigms, the growing interest for the performative function of arts archives, the fluidization and democratization of critical discourses, as well as the ripple effect of the performative turn define, nowadays, a climate in which theory and practice intermingle, seemingly re-bridging the gap between artists and scholars, between creators, historians and critics.
