“Comparative Dylan @ Comparative Drama”

Comparative Drama Conference

Orlando, FL, April 4-6, 2024

Deadline: October 12, 2023

 

Bob Dylan has been performing on stage for six decades. However, his relationship to other performance arts remains underexplored and underappreciated. This panel will put Dylan’s work as a singer-songwriter and performance artist in conversation with relevant dramatic works, performances, and stage traditions.

Broadly speaking, I am looking for paper proposals in the following areas:

Panel on Transgenerational Trauma in Theatre and Performance (Comparative Drama Conference, Orlando, April 4-6, 2024)

updated: 
Friday, September 1, 2023 - 9:52am
Comparative Drama Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 15, 2023

In Dark Matter (2013),  Andrew Sofer observes that “[s]taging trauma poses a representational conundrum because trauma confounds chronology and eludes comprehension” (118). Yet the theatre has long been a site for exploring the effects of collective trauma from genocide, slavery, war, environmental disaster, and forced displacement. Building on existing trauma studies scholarship and the work of psychologists such as Cathy Caruth and Judith Herman, whose research highlights trauma’s resistance to coherent, chronological narrative and simple representation, we are seeking papers for a special panel focusing on transgenerational trauma as it is expressed in dramatic literature and performance.

The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society (MRDS) will honor V. A. Kolve (1934-2022) with a panel of topics on medieval drama at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University, May 9-11, 2024. The Play Called Corpus Christi has been especially influential in medieval English drama studies, and its arguments about the significance of laughter, play, game, comic action, and time and space in the English biblical plays continue to shape the critical conversation. The MRDS invites those who have been influenced by Kolve’s work on early drama, or who studied or worked with him, to celebrate his legacy with papers that respond to or converse with Kolve’s contributions to the field.

Balkanising Classics: Theorising a New Perspective on Greco-Roman Antiquity

updated: 
Friday, August 4, 2023 - 2:15pm
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2023

Two conceptual territories bracket Europe’s imaginary geography: Greco-Roman Antiquity and the modern Balkans. According to Artemis Leontis, an “abstract principle of territorial identification” ties the political and cultural life of both modern Hellas and Western Europe to ancient Greek civilization. Rome has similarly been at the center of “a long and ongoing tradition of appropriating classical history and literature” to foster imperialist “narrative[s] of the exceptional progress” (Barnard). In comparison, the space of the Balkans seems peripheral to the project of European identity.

When we come together as queer, trans people, as feminist, dalit, adivasi, labour activists, as students collective members, labour union members, climate action group members, or as recluses hiding from the rest, magic happens. Entire worlds of possibilities sit within us, waiting for the thrill of some interaction, a trace of hope to channel them. They materialize in the strategies of our politics, together or alone, in the act that balances what we imagine and what is needed. Too often, it takes a few moments to even allow imagination to run wild – free-range wild, that too, not wild as in wilderness, as in orcas and mushrooms and such.

Nos interesa examinar los personajes teatrales que el poder tilda de “desechables” por su clase económica, discapacidad, raza, sexo, orientación sexual, y/o por su condición de desempleado, encarcelado, inmigrante, exiliado, perdedor de una guerra, entre otros motivos. Estos grupos a menudo son víctimas de la necropolítica que, según Achille Mbembe, instrumentaliza la existencia humana de manera que el poder determina quiénes son valiosos y quiénes resultan prescindibles, provocando así la degradación de la calidad de vida de numerosas personas.

This session investigates the surplus of melodrama through an examination of its excess. What can an overabundance of tears, laughter, and music tell us about the cultures they grew out of or ourselves? In what ways can we re-engage with and rethink the legacy and influence of the melodrama during its time and today?
