Origins and Assemblages of the "Modern;" Shakespeare and the Gothic Imagination

updated: 
Monday, June 18, 2018 - 9:32am
Lucian Ghita (Clemson University)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing in 1800, the Marquis de Sade claimed that the Gothic was the inevitable product of the revolutionary tremors felt throughout Europe. In revealing the proximity between poetic and political terror, the Gothic became the inescapable condition and symptom of modernity itself. The rise of the Gothic in late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Europe is closely bound up with the discovery of Shakespeare as a "modern dramatist" by Hegel and, later, Marx. Like the Gothic, Shakespeare's plays had a propensity for exploring the "dark underbelly" of the new modern world. This seminar explores the mutually constitutive relationship between "Shakespeare" and "the Gothic," viewed as cultural catalysts for modernity and modern creativity.

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 15, 2018

In 1928, the actors Hilton Edwards and Micheál macLiammóir founded the Dublin Gate Theatre, renowned for producing modernist plays and employing avant-garde staging techniques largely unknown to Irish audiences. Edwards and macLiammóir embraced transnational perspectives on identity and theatre and questioned the homogenisation of national identities and cultural forms of expression during Ireland’s anxious first post-independence decades, which were marked by censorship, cultural isolation and the promotion of state-approved literature.

American Literature before 1865 Panel at PAMLA

updated: 
Friday, May 18, 2018 - 3:45pm
Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, May 30, 2018

This session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of American Literature before 1865, including American Renaissance, Colonial, and Puritan literature. While we are open to papers dealing with a variety of topics and authors during this time period, we are particularly interested in papers that engage with the special conference theme of "Acting, Roles, Stages." As such, papers dealing with issues such as acting as art and metaphor, theories of role play and theatricality, and conceptions of the world stage and the public audience in American Literature prior to 1865 are particularly welcome. If your paper does not tap into these specific themes but deals with literary topics relevant to this era, you are still more than welcome to submit a proposal.
