What is disability? What is care?

 

Disability Scholar Margaret Price provides the following guidelines for care: 

“It means giving more when one has the ability to do so, and accepting help when that is needed. It does not mean knowing exactly what another’s pain feels like, but it does mean respecting each person’s pain as real and important… [C]are must emerge between subjects considered to be equally valuable... and it must be participatory in nature, that is, developed through the desires and needs of all participants” (2015).

Recent work on Shakespeare has shown the myriad ways in which the plays can be used productively to think through contemporary cultural and political issues. Books like Shakespeare and Latinidad (Trevor Boffone and Carla Della Gatta, eds.), Shakespeare and the Shades of Racism (Ruben Espinosa), Shakespeare and the 99% (Sharon O’Dair and Timothy Francisco, eds.), and Teaching Social Justice Through Shakespeare (Hilary Eklund and Wendy Beth Hyman, eds.) have demonstrated the relevance of Shakespeare to modern discourses of race, ethnicity, sexuality, colonialism, bilingualism, economic justice, social justice, education, and politics.

deadline for submissions:

Newton and modern science, especially Mathematics and Physics, have completely changed the concepts of space and movement. Unlike other thinkers of that century, among whom Immanuel Kant stands for his remarkable thought, the new concepts of space and movement don’t seem to have influenced Diderot’s thinking effectively.

In Spatele Blocului
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 1, 2021

What remains in the aftermath the overarching deconstruction theory for the fields of literary criticism and literary practice? Did the humanities find their vocation in the field of (meta)-theory and did literary practice abandon its traditional craft for good? Or does the advent of theory spell out a crisis of the humanities, and the "literature of replenishment" has been replaced by the "literature of exhaustion" (John Barth)? These are some of the questions we will try to address in the third issue of the Romanian online magazine In Spatele Blocului (www.inspateleblocului.ro), together with discerning new ways of configuring the craft of literary practice in general.

Proceeding from the beginning to the end of time, occurring in a ritual space, and focusing on moments of extraordinary joy, suffering, humor, and election, medieval drama maps worlds of vulnerability and interconnectedness.  Its scope has continued to inspire re-enactment and adaptation from Passion Plays and the Mormon Hill Cumorah pageants to Yiimimangaliso, a South African version of the Chester mystery plays stressing truth and reconciliation, and Brandon Jacob-Jenkins’ reworking of the medieval morality play Everyman as Everybody.

We envision this seminar as an opportunity to further reflect on the changes in pedagogy and performance praxis that have germinated from the changes brought about by the global health crisis and social justice movements. As Shakespeareans working across the disciplinary lines of literary and theatre pedagogy and performance, we invite colleagues to present papers critically discussing the experience of reading, teaching, performing, and appreciating Shakespeare in text and in performance.

This collection will consider relationships between performances and archives, and the impact of race, gender, sexuality, and class on how performance is documented. It will ask what is remembered and forgotten by theatre archives, how archives supplement and occasionally supplant memories of performances, and how those memories and omissions carry into later performances. 

 

'Dance of the Northern Renaissance' - a Journal of the Northern Renaissance special issue

updated: 
Friday, June 25, 2021 - 11:25am
Journal of the Northern Renaissance
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 19, 2021

JNR invites proposals for a special issue, edited by Lynsey McCulloch and Emily Winerock, on ‘Dance of the Northern Renaissance’. Dance was a key cultural practice of the early modern period: it was integral to theatrical representation; it was a significant element of court ritual; and it fulfilled an important social function. But how might we characterise the particular dance practices of Northern Europe? French, Spanish and Italian traditions have dominated histories of Renaissance dance. However, more recent accounts have challenged the conflation of North and South in discussions of early European dance, drawing attention to the myriad regional and national variations at work.
