Inaugural Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society

The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date.  From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.

'Lucid reason noting its limits': The Past, Present and Future of the Absurd

DEADLINE SEPTEMBER 30TH

For a time, the Absurd was one of the chief literary movements of the day. When Martin Esslin published The Theatre of the Absurd (1960)he would frame various emerging playwrights such as Ionesco, Beckett and Pinter under one label. Though they would reject the term, the notion of the Absurd stuck and would invite a flurry of criticism from the academic world. Interest in the Absurd, however, was like a match, burning with intensity before fizzling out just as suddenly. Why was this the case? Did new trends push the Absurd to the side? Were all of its possible avenues explored? Was the Absurd limited to its temporal context? Or perhaps it evolved into novel concepts such as post-humanism?

Saturday, October 1, 2016

While introducing a performance from Hamilton at the recent Tony Awards ceremony, hip hop artist Common described the show as a “gamechanger,” a “cultural phenomenon,” and “simply put... one of the greatest pieces of art ever made.” Indeed it has become hard to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton without resorting to hyperbole, as it appears to be a watershed moment in Broadway theatre and in American cultural history at large.

New Politics in Early Modern English Literature

updated: 
Friday, September 9, 2016 - 1:25pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Since the advent of new historicism and the later development of cultural materialism, politics have been a topic of interest in early modern literature, and recent studies have asked us to conceive of them in new and broader ways, whether they be environmental, ecological, or cognitive, and to focus on different and overlooked outlets, such as pamphlets, free speech, or emotions.

This panel defines politics as an implementation or projection of governance—by a monarch in a kingdom, the head of a household in a domicile, etc.—and aims to assess early modern literature’s ability to present a wide scope of competing politics or political relations by offering the interpretation and/or voicing of plural or alternate realities.

Spectatorship and Observation in the Medieval Arts (Kalamazoo 2017)

updated: 
Tuesday, September 6, 2016 - 2:11pm
The Medieval Studies Workshop at the University of Chicago - Sam Lasman, Carly Boxer
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 9, 2016

In contemporary studies of the Middle Ages, questions of visuality have increasingly dominated analyses of artistic production, in part because of the central role of vision in medieval theological and scientific discourse. This session seeks to broaden the conversation around medieval visuality by asking not only what it meant to see in the Middle Ages, but also what it meant to be seen, and how these networks of viewership could be depicted in the pictorial arts, literature, architecture, music, and drama.
