In 1928, the actors Hilton Edwards and Micheál macLiammóir founded the Dublin Gate Theatre, renowned for producing modernist plays and employing avant-garde staging techniques largely unknown to Irish audiences. Edwards and macLiammóir embraced transnational perspectives on identity and theatre and questioned the homogenisation of national identities and cultural forms of expression during Ireland’s anxious first post-independence decades, which were marked by censorship, cultural isolation and the promotion of state-approved literature.

CFP: Designing, Teaching, Leading, & Theorizing Out-of-the-Box Student Travel (Domestic or Int’l; Edited Collection)

We seek essays of 3,000-5,000 words for an edited collection that explores unique and out-of-the-box faculty-led student travel, whether abroad or domestically. This book intends to argue for unique and innovative forms of undergraduate student travel, travel that eschews the sadly ubiquitous pre-packaged and overpriced program. We anticipate having three major sections: articles exploring the a) theory, b) implementation, and c) teaching (both in and outside the classroom, depending) of such journeys.

Call for Papers

Music and comics have had a connection right from the start, with the title of the seminal newspaper strip Hogan’s Alley taken from a popular song by Edward Harrigan. As the 20th Century progressed these two media flirted with each other for inspiration and style, from Marvel comics based on the rock band KISS, to Duran Duran taking their name from Barbarella. Back room printing presses in the 60s and 70s saw the gig flyer and alternative comix emerge side by side, and comic creators from Alan Moore to Richard McGuire have been inspired by music in the creation of their long (play) narratives.
