Staging motherhood and mothers in British drama across centuries
Due to the ongoing discussions on the value of family in the contemporary world, the subject of motherhood returned to the forefront of public discourse in Europe and incited new polemics on – as is suggested by rightist politics – the natural drive towards maternity. We wish to broaden the research on motherhood and focus on topics and tropes of motherhood, mothers, maternity, and mothering as shown on stage and presented in published/written British drama.
We invite you to send abstracts on literary/dramatic and linguistic/semantic aspects related to the idea of dramatised motherhood. We are particularly looking for papers on:
Performance, Religion, and Spirituality

Greetings! My name is Laura Bauer and I’m the film studies editor of Women Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal. I am also the co-editor of All Things Dickinson: An Encyclopedia of Emily Dickinson's World published by ABC-CLIO in 2014. Hollywood Heroines: The Most Influential Women in Film History is a reference work that provides comprehensive and wide-ranging categories not often found together in a single volume on film.
This panel will consider how twentieth century American plays define, operationalize, register, and/or critique ethical discourse. Is there an “ethics” of the twentieth century play? What people, places, and things are left out of this ethical discourse? For example, in asking ethical questions, some projects may wish to consider how American drama resists, and/or encodes, power relations. Research here may also be mindful of how specific American plays, masters, and movements help us to ask difficult questions rather than seek easier answers.
This panel seeks to find 3-4 strong proposals that would talk about the varied themes of international interest that emerge out of Visniec’s critically acclaimed plays. The political and the social are always strong points of interest as explored by the characters’ dynamic dialogues. Born in Romania, Visniec now lives in France, but his plays are performed internationally. He connects with audiences globally and that is proof of his exquisite writing. The panel also seeks to discuss how theater and performance are much needed in today’s conflicting and violent international context, and how the stage becomes an international platform where we are more than passive members, but instead are transformed by the spectacle.

On February 25, 2017 at Fashion Week in Milan, over 40 statuesque women stalked Missoni’s runway in pink pussyhats. Was this a rebellious act of women’s defiance in a world they are systematically put down or a neoliberal opportunism to capitalize on a world in which feminism is a burgeoning trend? This trend didn’t begin with the Women’s March or Lady Gaga, and it didn’t begin with Donald Trump’s “nasty” label. Women were “bad feminists” as early as the 1990s. Second wave feminists rejected third wave performers for the controversial way they used their bodies and spoke their minds to a public who didn’t want to hear or see them (Buszek). Today we hear and see them, labeling them and ourselves as “difficult”, “nasty”, and “bad” (Gay).
