Disability in Dramatic Texts and Performance
Papers are sought for a special panel series on the subject of disability in dramatic texts and performance. We invite research utilizing Disability Studies in any dramatic period. Panels will showcase discussions on representation, image, symbolism, societal regulation or construction of disability, casting, and depictions of the disabled in playtexts and dramatic performance.
Papers should be 15 minutes in length, written for oral presentation, and accessible to a multi-disciplinary audience. Scholars and artists in all languages and literatures are invited to email a 250 word abstract in English to Mary Lutze at firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 November 2019. The formation of the panel[s] will be contingent upon the number of submissions. With abstract submissions, please include paper title, author’s name, status (faculty, graduate student, other/scholar-at-large), institutional affiliation, and postal address at top left. Abstracts must present a clear argument and have an appropriate scope (usually two or fewer works) as well as an apparent engagement with Disability Studies. Please send your abstract in .docx, .txt, or .rtf format.
Inquiries should be directed to Mary Lutze at email@example.com.
