Siblings on Stage and Screen

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 8, 2018

University of Worcester (UK), September 5th 2018

 

This one day symposium aims to explore the relatively under-developed study of siblings in visual culture and performance.

 

In drama, family relationships are both ubiquitous and complex and whether a Renaissance revenge tragedy or a play by Harold Pinter, the plot often pivots on the loyalty or jealousy between siblings, confusion caused by twins or conflict prompted by illegitimacy. Whilst there have been many explorations of the role of siblings in Shakespeare, the examination of sibling relationships in its many forms, remains a fruitful area of discussion for plays from the sixteenth to twenty-first century.

Queer Literature, Film, and Theory  

Refusing to define the boundaries of queer theory, Lauren Berlant and Michael Warner argued in 1995 that it “cannot be assimilated to a single discourse, let alone a propositional program.” In the years since, queer theory has, if anything, become more varied in its methods, its approaches, and its objects. What has persisted is a resistance to assimilation, and a refusal to be pinned down, delimited, or reduced to an abstraction.

2019 marks the 300th anniversary of the publication of Love in Excess, the still-popular work of fiction that launched the print career of one of the most important authors of the entire eighteenth century. The Early Atlantic Reading Group at Purdue University therefore calls for papers and non-fatal enquiries in celebration of all aspects of Eliza Haywood’s work, career, and world (such expansive topics might include bibliography, women’s book history, theatricals, the Hillarians, or even Haywood and Crusoe—which also marks its 300th birthday in 2019). Please send abstracts of approximately 250 words to Manushag N. Powell (mnpowell@purdue.edu) on or before August 20, 2018.

What’s Missing in Shakespeare?

Shakespeare's plays are often complicated by what they lack. Key characters go missing from scenes or drop out of the action entirely; absent characters exert influence over those onstage; mislaid or immaterial objects are pivotal to the resolutions of plots; urgent questions are settled through silences; and plays are frequently haunted by untaken roads or abandoned plot threads. In addition, contemporary performances are shaped significantly by cuts to the script, with some scenes or characters rarely realized in performance, and some plays rarely performed at all.

Villains In Medieval And Early Modern Life And Lit

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 2, 2018

This panel of the 32nd Medieval-Renaissance Conference (UVA-Wise, Sept. 13-15, 2018) invites papers on medieval and early modern villains and the dynamic ethical codes assigned them by authors, audiences, and critics. By villains we mean criminals, tricksters (such as professional beggers), political careerists, or poets and their characters, charismatic or not. Some viable threads: villains as likable (anti-)heroes; villains as reflections of med-ren political and social audiences; the vices, virtues, and skills of villains; the ethical implications their very existence conjures. Submit abstracts to Sherif Abdelkarim at sa2je@virginia.edu. Deadline July 2, 2018.

Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Editors Tony Perrello and C. Anne Engert welcome proposals for individual and co-authored chapters for a volume entitled Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies. We are in the process of assembling a collection of essays that explores the current American crises of leadership through the dramatic literature of the English Renaissance or vice versa. We believe that many of our colleagues are already talking about the intersection between these two topics, and we envision this edited volume as an opportunity to further such exploration in a scholarly venue. Palgrave MacMillan has shown interest in the project, which we aim to complete by March of 2019.

Sunday, April 15, 2018

Shakespeare’s plays and the critical conversations around them are deeply concerned with questions of culture.  Many of the plays are set in cultures different than Shakespeare’s own early modern England, from Denmark to Italy to Ancient Rome, often using those cultures to examine his own.  Productions of his plays have been set in a dizzying array of cultures, in order make comments on yet other cultures.  The culture of Imperial Britain made use of Shakespeare in order to dominate (and often consume) the cultures which they colonized.
