The 2012 volume will focus on "Shakespeare and Performance." We are interested in articles that consider any aspect of performance in historical or contemporary productions of Shakespeare and his contemporary playwrights. The following list is of possible topics, but should not be considered exhaustive:
"Women Writing the Prison: Incarceration, Citizenship, Belonging", SSAWW CFP (1/23/2012)
Seeking papers for a proposed panel at the Society for the Study of American Women Writers (SSAWW) Triennial Conference at the Westin Tabor Center in Denver, CO, October 10-13, 2012 on the theme "Women Writing the Prison: Incarceration, Citizenship, Belonging"
For the June 2012 issue of Modern Horizons we invite essays that explore the various philosophical, literary, artistic, and political expressions of place and particularity which have led to and are part of our time.
Place and particularity may be emphasised practically or addressed theoretically; in both cases, the importance of our own time, space, and experiences, and how these relate to what is different or other, is evident. Whether considering buying and growing food locally, participating in community activism, or working to sustain the diminishing realities of neighbourhoods, the urge to encourage and realise place and particularity is prevalent in our societies.
