Why study the early modern period? Most academics of earlier periods have encountered this question in one form or another. This question seems especially pressing when it comes to teaching. For many of us, it is our goal to have monographs published by university presses and spend summers conducting research in archives. But the reality is that a large part of our day-to-day impact as scholars is on the undergraduate students we encounter as instructors, usually teens and young adults. This panel is interested in engaging in a conversation about how teaching undergraduate students impacts our scholarship in early modern studies.

THEATRE ANNUAL: A Journal of Theatre and Performance of the Americas
How are novels adapted for onstage presentations as musicals or operas? Given their large numbers of characters, multiple settings, and large spans of time, the plots of novels need to be adapted to fit within the logistical and chronological realities of live theatre, as compared when novels are adapted for film or video. Also, how is music used in these adaptations? We seek proposals that examine how this has been done in the past and is being done now.
We invite book chapter proposals for the forthcoming scholarly volume In the Shadows of the City of Light: Representations of Marginal Paris, to appear in Brill publisher’s series “Francopolyphonies.” This interdisciplinary edited collection of essays will examine how marginal Paris, including particular populations, spaces and practices, has been represented in literature and other cultural productions from the French-speaking world.

ABOUT CONFERENCE:7-8 April 2022, 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.
Not I: 50th Annyversary
Nov. 2, 3, 4, 2022
Assumption University -- Worcester, Massachusetts
Now accepting paper proposals for Not I: 50th Annyversary. This event will celebrate Samuel Beckett’s short play “Not I,” which turns 50 this November. Papers may concern any element of “Not I” or the theme of identity in any of Beckett’s work. Graduate students are encouraged to submit.
All panels are plenary and will take place at Assumption University (about an hour outside of Boston). Leading Beckett scholar S. E. Gontarski will be the special guest. The event will also include a performance of “Not I.”
For an upcoming special section, the editors of PRS are seeking research that uses performance as an analytical method to understand the structure, function, use, meaning, or affects of classical religious, philosophical or religious texts. The problem of how to ‘activate’ classical texts for contemporary readers is difficult, and in recent decades, some scholars, artists and religious professionals have turned to making their own live performances responding to classical texts—in a wide variety of forms and settings—as a means of doing so. In this work, they often are forced to make complex decisions that highlight the assumptions, meanings, and consequences embedded in these texts that may not be as visible to the non-performative reader.
Many scholars have questioned what the rise of globalization, facilitated through new forms of technology, could mean for our ability to study and reach larger audiences. While some media practitioners and researchers have struggled to keep pace, changes to global technologies also present the benefits of accessibility and creativity. Due to the impacts of Covid-19, global media has become an ever more vital avenue for continuing typical social practices in scholarship and artistic endeavors like conferences and performances. This interdisciplinary conference seeks to interrogate the methodologies that have arisen with media development around the world.

Vancouver, located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations, has long been a site of occupation, exchange, defiance and resilience. From time immemorial, it has been a location of trade and traversal across coastal Indigenous communities of the Pacific and, in more recent centuries, a place where other diverse cultures from across the world have also negotiated relation across colonial pathways and settlements. Vancouver is a site of multiple Nation to Nation relationships. It is a site of resistance as well as capitulation to uneven development, neoliberal markets, colonial laws, and to exclusion – situations exacerbated by the recent pandemic.

What is awarded?
At first, America was convinced of its utter illegitimacy as a purveyor of “art” music. In the 19th century, as musical life developed in the United States, and while large American cities built concert halls to house their newly-formed symphony orchestras, the repertoire and the most popular artists remained overwhelmingly European: thus, the Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (1820-1887) – a friend of Felix Mendelssohn, a collaborator of Giuseppe Verdi, and a key figure of the Bach Renaissance – made a deep impression when she toured the country in 1852-2.
