SETC Theatre Symposium Volume 27

“Theatre and Embodiment”

DATES: April 13-15, 2018

LOCATION: Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA

 

At the heart of the theatrical act is the simultaneous live presence of the actor and the audience. Given primacy of bodies in and to the theatrical act, how do we understand those bodies as communicating meaning? How do bodies understand themselves as operating within the theatrical or performative context? The 2018 Southeastern Theatre Conference (SETC) Theatre Symposium will focus on the interplay between theatre and embodiment. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

New Directions for Rhetorical Studies in Early Modern Literature

Rhetoric and literature obviously have an intricate shared history in early modern studies evidenced by the likes of George Puttenham’s Art of English Poesie (1579) among other manuals and treatises, but studies continue to demonstrate that there is more to be examined at this scholarly intersection. By applying research in cognitive studies, for instance, Raphael Lyne offers a new perspective on Shakespeare’s use of rhetoric, and in a forthcoming piece Michael Ullyot and Adam Bradley employ digital technologies in order to study the applications of rhetorical tropes like gradatio in early modern drama more broadly. This panel seeks to discuss what other innovations or findings are possible with or without novel applications.

From social media’s ‘food porn’, reality television and culinary pop-ups to concept-restaurants and the internationalisation of local cuisines. Arguably, menus have recently become a privileged medium for cultural transfer and appropriation, but food has long been both the signifier and transmitter of emotion, identity, ideology, belonging and wealth.

Male Appropriations of the Female Form in Early Modern Literature

While his most famous crossdressing characters are women posing as men––including Rosalind from As You Like ItTwelfth Night’s Viola, and The Merchant of Venice’s Portia––William Shakespeare also twice imagines male characters posing as women: Falstaff in The Merry Wives of Windsor and the page playing Christopher Sly’s wife in The Taming of the Shrew. Male characters also pass (to varying degrees) as women in works by Sidney, Jonson, Middleton, Fletcher, and others. But while much has been made of the “squeaking” boy actors who played women’s parts on the early modern stage, very little critical attention has been paid to male characters wearing women’s weeds in early modern literature.

Every play imagines its own world—but the worlds they imagine must in some way connect with their audience, both past and present. This panel invites perspectives on early modern English drama that considers the balance between these two poles: the imagined world of the setting and its connection to the surrounding culture in early modern England. This balance is particularly important in early modern English drama for both historical reasons—an increased awareness of other worlds and their different reality within the expanding cultural purview of the early modern English—and literary ones—since so much criticism of these plays has focused on their relation to early modern England itself to the exclusion of their frequently quite disparate settings.

2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Richard Burbage, a member of the family who gave us the first purpose-built theatre in Shakespeare's London. By exploring his life, and those around him, historians have been able to unearth much valuable information about the early modern theatre industry. Scholarship about other theatre people – prompted by their work, the archive, or both – has similarly added to our knowledge of the theatre in Shakespeare's time. We have learnt about the period's theatre from Philip Henslowe's diary, Anthony Munday's pageants, Richard Brome's contract, and George Wilkins' lawsuits.

Whereas religious study often dwells with the theological question of how the sacred has been revealed to humanity, sociologists of religion Emile Durkheim and Max Weber preferred to ask how the sacred is made and remade within a society. For them, human activity assumes a power sometimes attributed to supernatural forces: the power to produce the sacred.

"Fear and Anxiety in Contemporary Drama and Performance": 27th Annual CDE Conference, University of Hildesheim (Germany), 31 May to 3 June 2018

In an increasingly news-saturated world – or even, a news-controlled one – contemporary Western social and cultural discourse is preoccupied with narratives of fear and anxiety. Especially after the events of 11 September 2001, there has been a significant increase in plays and productions representing events, contexts, people, and situations that relate to these themes. Meanwhile, we are encouraged to be afeared of: the anonymous or digital other, the unknown or unexplainable (such as disappearing planes), the collapse of capitalism (and the bankers who caused it), fake news and ‘post-truths’, and the rise of the political right (or left).

Since the 1960s, marking a transition from a Friedian conception of artistic modernism to one turning around John Cage and his New York circle, performance art has forged a strong relationship to moving-image art writ large. Responding to technological developments across imaging, motion-capture, and virtual or augmented reality research, performance artists have created increasingly sophisticated works that defy ready classification.

In light of the Broadway revival of M. Butterfly (opening in October 2017) we are particularly interested in receiving abstracts that address this production (some possible topics: Taymor’s vision of the play, Hwang’s changes to the play, the timeliness of M. Butterfly, the casting of Clive Owen as Gallimard, or a comparison with the original production).  Recognizing that not everyone will get a chance to see the play before abstracts are due, we also seek abstracts on the play in general.
