Dramas of Life in the Renaissance

Sunday, April 5, 2009 - 8:40pm
Lloyd Kermode / California State University Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies

Why has human society consistently incorporated drama into its sense of self and community? Why do people want to watch other people "playing out" scenarios in history and fiction? Why are people compelled to live out stories and explain themselves and their relations to other people, places, and objects in dramatic ways? Where do we draw the line in historiography, theater history, art and literary studies between "drama" and the "dramatic" - between official play and the merely playful?

Speaking of Grief: Death and Language in Modernism (MSA 11, 5-8 November 2009, Montréal, Québec, Canada)

Daniel Moore (Queen's University, Canada)

If the Holocaust motivated aesthetic theorists and writers to rethink the premise of the literary mode altogether, stated in one form by Theodore Adorno in his 1951 claim that to write "poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric," early-twentieth-century writers tended to respond to the most violent and rife deaths of their time by zeroing in on words themselves. We may find the most prominent meeting of fatality and diction in the modernist period in attacks on languages of militarism and commemoration launched from a host of quarters, in particular by ex-servicemen following the Great War.

Ghosh himself has also been kind enough to give an interview to be printed in the volume. We require a few more essays especially focussing on the following topics:

Call for Publication on the Spatial Significance of Native American Stories and Ideology -- due July 31

Cristine Soliz

We are now accepting submissions for a collection of stories, essays, and poems for a proposed book on comparative American spatial concepts, partially titled "Stories the Land Holds." The editors are looking for texts variously addressing "stories in the land." What are the stories the land tells? Vine Deloria has warned us of problems that result from a perspective that is not fundamentally spatial, and such has been the case for current problems that range from ecological disaster to fanatical environmentalism and bundled mortgages. We believe that these complex and problematic American events can be understood more fully from a Native American perspective.
