The Drama Caucus MMLA.  Play and Passivism.
In contradistinction to the MMLA General Theme, “Arts and Activism,” the Drama Caucus seeks papers on play and passivism in modern and contemporary drama.  Papers might address such topics as pointlessness, lethargy, apathy, ennui, and incompetence.   We especially welcome proposals that promise innovative or unconventional presentational modes.  350-word abstracts are due 1 April 2017 to Matthew Bowman, bowma9@lcc.edu.
