Narrative and Music

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, March 14, 2021

The cognitivist turn sparked a renewed interest in narrative analysis that extends beyond the study of literature. It has expanded across media such as film, graphic novels, video games, and music. This conference focuses on the study of narrative and narrativity in music. While some critics are convinced of music’s capacity for story-building, others consider the use of narrative theory derived from literary studies for the analysis of music unsuitable. This conference takes music’s narrative potential as its point of departure but recognizes that musical narrativity is scalar.

Adapting Print Genres for the Victorian Stage

deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, March 27, 2021

"Adapting Print Genres for the Victorian Stage" will consider how British plays within the Victorian era (1837-1901) interacted with and responded to news stories, social movements, or cultural debates appearing in print genres, including newspapers, the periodical press, and literature. Often, a theatrical adaptation of a popular novel appeared even before its serialization had concluded, as in the case of Charles Dickens's 1839 novel Nicholas Nickleby, which appeared on 19 November 1838 at the Adelphi Theatre, adapted by Edward Stirling, a mere eight numbers into its serialization.

Shakespeare and the Closure of Theatres

A one-day international online conference on 22 April 2021

The English Research Institute at De Montfort University in Leicester, England, is running a one-day international conference to reflect on closure of theatres in Shakespeare's time and our own.

It is well known that the theatres of Shakespeare's time repeatedly had to close as part of sensible precautions against the spread of the most serious communicable disease of the day: the plague. To stop the disease spreading, early moderns had to practise social distancing; without it a playgoer might bring home from the theatre more than just new ideas and ways of speaking.
