A Family Matter: A Study of August Wilson’s Plays

August Wilson was a man of vision. While Wilson was committed to portraying the “richness and resilience of the twentieth-century black American life through the medium of drama,”[1] he also set the stage for all Americans to examine their purpose and place in society. In addition to his stage portrayals, Wilson also presented his theories in his lectures such as, “The Ground on which I Stand,” where he identified himself as a “race man.” This focus brings up the question: How are his views on family matters presented in his lectures compared to those depicted in his plays?

Sean O'Casey beyond Irish Nationalism, Louisville Conference

Louisville Conference on Literature & Culture since 1900
deadline for submissions:

Since the plays of Sean O'Casey are ripe for analysis beyond historical/new historical readings that examine them in light of Irish nationalism, I am seeking abstracts for a possible panel on O'Casey for the Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900 (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com/) on February 22-24, 2018.  O'Casey's work, both that which focuses on the years just before and after Irish independence and that written during his years in England, offers varied resources for scholarship from the perspectives of colonialism/postcolonialism, Marxist theory, and gender analysis.

From social media’s ‘food porn’, reality television and culinary pop-ups to concept-restaurants and the internationalisation of local cuisines. Arguably, menus have recently become a privileged medium for cultural transfer and appropriation, but food has long been both the signifier and transmitter of emotion, identity, ideology, belonging and wealth.

NeMLA Annual Convention - Pittsburgh, PA - 12-15 April, 2018

For a time, the Absurd was one of the chief literary movements of the day. When Martin Esslin published The Theatre of the Absurd 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.

DEADLINE EXTENDED: Performing The Early Modern English Woman (1500-1710): Seeing and Being Seen on the Domestic, Civic, and Dramatic Stage.

or Early Modern Women, the very act of seeing or being seeing was fraught. Whether in their domestic roles or later as they first appeared on English stages, much was talked about the gaze of the early modern woman and the sway she held over others' gazes. Whether she was catching the eye of a potential lover or looking longingly after her children, her freedom, her future, the language of sight surrounds these women. This panel will look for papers exploring the theatrical power within these depictions of women seeing and being seen. The performative nature of being a woman who must appear chaste while remaining sexually desirable.
