Chapter proposals are invited for Ecofeminist Drama: Environment, Gender, and Theatre. The editors of the book series Methuen Drama Agitations: Text, Politics and Performances, published by Bloomsbury, have expressed strong interest in publishing Ecofeminist Drama. All proposals must have a strong ecofeminist focus. Interested authors should send a 300- to 500-word abstract, 200-word biography, and sample of a previously published chapter or article to Dr.
In Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, the playwriting Earl of Oxford looks on from the galleries of the Globe as a performance of his/Shakespeare’s Henry V whips up a large crowd of groundlings, just as the Earl had intended it. Earlier the Earl had already enthused over a match of tennis about the possibilities of theatre – “That’s power.” This year’s Shakespeare Seminar seeks to discuss the countless ways in which Shakespeare, his works, early modern culture as well as later performances of Shakespeare’s works are political or have been politicised. To what extent can his plays be seen to endorse certain power politics? Are politics in Shakespeare ultimately a question of genre?

"A need to tell and hear stories is essential to the species Homo sapiens – second in necessity apparently after nourishment and before love and shelter. Millions survive without love or home, almost none in silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our day’s events to the vast incommunicable constructs of psychopaths."

Cities of Sound: Podcasting as Public Texts, Media, and Performances
Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.
The English theatre culture from the early Restoration to the early 18th century witnessed a marked shift towards increased commercialization and popularization of theatre. Gone were the post-1660 close association with the court, royalist productions, and prominently elite (well-off and upper-class) audiences. Instead, the experimentation with new genres, opening of new theatres, and a growing differentiation of the theatre programme into mainpieces, entr’acte entertainments and afterpieces revolutionized the established cultural hierarchies of the period.
ABOUT CONFERENCE: 22-23 April 2021, ONLINE (via Zoom)Affects, emotions and perceptions have always been at the center of philosophical discussion. Yet the so called “Affective turn” in social studies and humanities is relatively a new phenomenon inspired by Deleuze and Guattari´s influential works among others. Affective turn challenges the still dominant representational approach in semiotics, discourse analysis and text analyses of all kind. Its goal is to overcome human exceptionalism together with the domination of the word-based language over the other forms of expression in the process of creating meaning and knowledge altogether.

Is drag separable from gender? A preponderance of self-described "drag things" (versus drag kings and queens) specializing in performances of non-human entities and appearing everywhere from stages in local gay bars to digital platforms like Instagram and YouTube would suggest so; however, when we speak of drag in academic literature, we hew closely to notions of drag as demonstrating gender performativity above all else. This collection therefore seeks to theorize a previously underrepresented form of drag performance that does not necessarily play with gender so much as it plays with humanness:We call this "posthuman drag."

Seeking submissions for a Critical Insights volume on Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 under contract with Salem/Grey House Publishers. Known as being a satirical, anti-war novel that initiated the eponymous phrase regarding paradoxical situations, Catch-22 was originally published in 1961. Catch-22 is appreciated for its dark humor, use of flashbacks, contorted chronology, countercultural sensibilities, and bizarre language. With current trends and political climate considered, it is time to revisit this classic text for a contemporary audience.
A small number of entries for London's East End: A Short Encyclopedia (under contract, McFarland; ed. Kevin A. Morrison) remain unassigned in the "Film, Television, Music, Theater" category. A list appears below. Entries for this category should range from 50-350 words. Established scholars, early career researchers, and advanced graduate students—those who, in a US context, have passed their qualifying exams—are welcome.

Contemporary Latinx writers, visual artists, dancers, and performance artists enact, embody, cross, and defy multiple borders – those of nation, gender, race, language, climate, species, among others – in their work. In doing so they often draw on indigenous and other inherited forms of cultural expression, reclaiming and resignifying them in the process. The tension between the desire to belong to a rooted community and the longing to break away from a prescriptive collective is a hallmark of Latinx expression on various borders – ranging from the Chihuahuan desert to the Massacre River.
