I seek two other papers for a panel on the alternately symbiotic and antagonistic relationship between Broadway and Hollywood--as entertainment industries, cultural destinations, and/or aesthetics. The circulation of talent and content between Broadway and Hollywood obviously has a long and complex history, from Hollywood's poaching of Broadway talent during the early sound era to its bankrolling of Broadway shows as early as the 1930s.

‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Philosophizing Performance, Performing Philosophy

Thursday, August 31, 2017

Performance philosophy has been in development for the past decade as an interdisciplinary approach to performance studies. The contemporary global reality and political-economic situations have called forth performances that operate within new frames of reference and use new technologies. Understanding the complex politics of these new performances requires a fresh theorizing, a specifically contemporary philosophy of performance. The ‘crossover’ of performance and philosophy hybridizes the spaces between and around the two ‘conceptual personae’ (Deleuze and Guattari). The present areas of conceptual interrogation include radical interventionist studies of existing philosophies to place performance into perspective.

Baltimore, Maryland, has been the home of several important African American authors, including Frederick Douglass and Frances E. W. Harper.  In addition to these major writers who influenced the emergence of African American protest literature of the tumultuous nineteenth century, there are several other significant writers of prose and poetry who have lived in the city and created African American literature. Notable examples include Zora Neale Hurston, Countee Cullen, Waters Turpin, Eugenia Collier, and Lucille Clifton.

Vol. 4 Issue 2 (June 2017)

Michael Kula, University of Washington, Tacoma

 

As our daily lives have grown more and more dominated by technology and by a corresponding fascination with the “new,” there’s been a counter movement interested in reexamining the ways of “the past.”  Whether it is handmade books, craft-made pickles, vintage automobiles, or handlebar mustaches, indeed the cliché often seems true now: what’s old is new again.

The Great Fire: Reconsidered – Call for Papers

3 September 2016 – Wren Suite, St Paul’s Cathedral

 

The Great Fire of London has long been held as a watershed moment in London’s history. Over the course of four days in September 1666, an infernal blaze claimed over 13,000 houses, 87 churches and 52 livery halls, and rendered an estimated 70,000 people homeless. Yet while cellars still burned there were whispers at court that the conflagration might actually be ‘the greatest blessing that God ever conferred’ upon King Charles II because it had crippled the ‘rebellious’ City of London; forever opening its gates to royal power.

spent much of the Middle Ages as perpetual “others” with fluid boundaries and constant

Sunday, June 5, 2016

This panel seeks proposals that examine the performance of the monstrous on the early modern stage. Performances of the monstrous include but are not limited to deformity, animals, devils, witches, and other supernatural beings performed on stage. Proposals should consider the vibrant medieval iconographic images of the monstrous that continued to stimulate the early modern imagination. Questions to be addressed might include: how did staging the monstrous secure or collpase boundaries between the natural and supernatural realms? Did the monstrous on stage enforce or interrogate political, cultural, or religious authority? How might staging the monstrous call attention to the cultural power of the stage?

A Woman Well Reputed? Porcia/Portia from Antiquity to the Renaissance

updated:

Renaissance Society of America
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

Cato’s daughter; Brutus’ wife.  This panel will consider the figure of Porcia in the Renaissance, where she is to be found in a wide range of cultures and genres.  From the earliest accounts, Porcia has been something of a a paradox: heroic and vulnerable; the masculine soul who is also the devoted wife.   No woman in history can have passed into legend more closely defined by her menfolk; let’s give her some room of her own.

 

Topics might include, but are certainly not limited to:

 

National traditions (eg. Spanish lyrical Porcias; French tragic Porcias)

Exemplary Porcias

Porcia in the visual arts

Female suicide: strength or weakness?

Gender transgression

Transfusions and Transductions: Science and Performance as Permeable Disciplines

American Society of Theatre Research, November 2016
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, June 1, 2016

Transmit, transmute, transduce, transfuse: scientific and medical discourses have long relied upon the prefix “trans” to convey the mutability and permeability of living organisms, distant or tiny objects, and inorganic matter. Change is both a celebrated result of scientific advancements and an ominous harbinger of malignancies, disruptions, and decay. As with the clinical laboratory and astronomical observatory, the theatre serves as a reflexive and generative site of transformations, a place to penetrate barriers and test innovative ideas, approaches, and practices. This working session places transdisciplinarity at the core of its mission to identify and explore meaningful convergences of the fields of science and theatre.

Sunday, February 5, 2017

Compared to film, TV and the novel, science fiction theatre is not a widely discussed topic. But, whilst there is only one book from the 1990s that lists the history of sf plays, there is a long legacy of staging the fantastical, including the importance of Karel Čapek’s R.U.R. (1920) in coining the term ‘robot’. With contemporary mainstream plays such as Constellations, The Nether, MrBurns and X, sf theatre may be experiencing something of a revival. There are an increasing number of sf theatre companies worldwide as well as a new anthology in sf plays.
