Tragedy as a dramatic genre, theatrical practice, and mode of affect is defined by its longevity and rich tradition and has developed into an extraordinarily dynamic genre, firstly as a mode of narration, secondly as a phenomenon of transition and transformation between text and embodied performance that implies the crossing of medial boundaries, and thirdly in a transnational sense that implies the crossing of geographical borders.

While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.

Performing Fantastika: An Interdisciplinary Conference

The 4rd annual Fantastika conference will focus on performative bodies in fantastika. This includes performance in theatrical plays and films, as well as an examination of the body itself. How is the body performed and perceived in fantastika texts? How do fantastika texts and our interaction with fantastika texts modulate our understanding of performative bodies?

I seek two other papers for a panel on the alternately symbiotic and antagonistic relationship between Broadway and Hollywood--as entertainment industries, cultural destinations, and/or aesthetics. The circulation of talent and content between Broadway and Hollywood obviously has a long and complex history, from Hollywood's poaching of Broadway talent during the early sound era to its bankrolling of Broadway shows as early as the 1930s.

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Abstract

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.
