Minority Identities: Rights and Representation

updated: 
Monday, November 29, 2010 - 8:44am
University of Reading, UK

This conference aims to explore the interface between creative/critical forms of representation and the claim to material/ontological human and animal rights. It will examine the concepts 'minority', 'identity', 'rights' and 'representation' and their possible intersections. It will also interrogate categories and politics of identity, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, age, and disability, as well as the critical disciplines that invest in these, such as feminism, postcolonialism, and cultural studies.

'Who has the right to a particular literary terrain,
the right to define the terms of representation?'

[UPDATE] Eugene O'Neill's One-Act Plays--Edited Collection (1/1/11 & 7/1/11)

Michael Y. Bennett/University of Wisconsin-Whitewater & Benjamin D. Carson/Bridgewater State University

Although Eugene O'Neill's work has generated much scholarship, his one-act plays have not received the critical attention they deserve. Given that O'Neill began his career writing one-act plays, including his justly famous "Sea Plays," associated with the Provincetown Players, it is surprising that his one-acts have been largely neglected. This current collection aims to fill the gap by examining O'Neill's one-act plays, during what can be considered O'Neill's formative writing years, and the formative period of American drama.
