Seeking paper proposals for a panel on The Child in Utopia for the Society for Utopian Studies, November 9-13, 2022, in Charleston, SC.
If how a society is judged by how it treats its children, what can we make of the representation of children in utopias and dystopias? How are our cultural perspectives of childhood influenced by utopian or dystopian notions? Are utopias themselves childlike? How are childhood and utopia linked? Are these static or dynamic? These and many other questions can be explored in this panel. The conference’s theme is “make, unmake, remake”—which echoes the path of maturation. Papers dealing with any aspect of child culture, stemming from any academic or creative discipline, are welcome.

How should we imagine our roles as teachers and scholars of comparative literature when national and ethical boundaries are being deconstructed and reconstructed?

The Routledge Studies in Edward Albee and American Theatre book series aims to examine mid-to-late 20th Century American theatre; its most influential and important playwright, Edward Albee; and his contemporaries. This series is equally dedicated to both dramatic literature and theatrical performance, thinking about the American theatre in its totality. This series wants to examine the milieu of American theatre during the course of Albee’s six-decade-long career. Additionally, Edward Albee was a great champion of supporting other playwrights; therefore, in keeping with the mission of the Edward Albee Society, this series is especially interested in books about playwrights that were influenced by Albee.

‘An obsession with individual identity pervaded Western world thinking in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Many people were worried they might lose themselves in the frightening darkness lying just beyond the earthbound. [...] The literature of the time reflects this fascination with the shaky foundations on which rested these authors’ desires for certainty in an unpredictable world.’
