Blurring distinctions between the morally edifying, instructive, and perverse, P.T. Barnum’s American Museum at the corner of Broadway and Ann Street in New York was central to the emerging culture of popular entertainment in the 1840s-1860s. Les Harrison estimates that by 1865, forty-one million visitors attended P.T. Barnum’s American Museum in New York: nearly six million more than the total population of the United States at the conclusion of the Civil War.

William Shakespeare was Emily Dickinson’s favorite writer and her letters abound with references to him and his works. Dickinson’s allusions to Shakespeare’s writings evidence his pervasive presence in her life but also signal his ubiquitous place in her culture.

In collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, the 2020 EDIS Annual Meeting will be held July 31 to August 1 in Amherst. This year’s focus is Dickinson’s great love of Shakespeare and this theme will shape the usual features of our Annual Meetings such as reading groups, tours of the Dickinson Museum, performances, readings, seminar-style discussions, and talks.

Wooden O Symposium

Southern Utah University/Utah Shakespeare Festival
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 1, 2020

The Wooden O Symposium invites panel and paper proposals on any topic related to the text and performance of Shakespeare’s plays. The 2020 conference seeks papers that investigate our 2020 theme: Shakespeare, Story, and Adaptation. Topics could range from the art and power of story-telling, legends and tales, or the drive to adapt stories. We welcome unique interpretations of this theme. Next year’s symposium encourages papers and panels that speak to the Utah Shakespeare Festival’s 2020 season: Pericles, The Comedy of Errors, Richard III, Cymbeline, Shakespeare’s Worst!, Into the Breeches!, and Desperate Measures (a musical based on Measure for Measure).

The materiality of the body confounds us; it forces a reconsideration of the “linguistic turn,” perhaps even the “social constructionist” turn, by which we understand the world and identity as linguistically or socially constituted. But how do we look at bodies –our own, the first bodies exhibited to us as children, the bodies of clowns and circus performers, or even the bodies of everyday folks with impairments—people who are like us but also somehow different? And what knowledge do such encounters create or reify?
