Thinking With a River: Housatonic Valley History and Culture
Manuscripts and Premodern Performance: Reassessing the Evidence
Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society
Leeds International Medieval Congress
July 3-6, 2023
The relationship between manuscript and performance in medieval drama has long been a subject of debate. Do extant premodern play texts bear witness to actual or idealized performances? What function did early drama manuscripts serve? What role should drama manuscripts play in determining our understanding of the world of medieval performance?
We seek presentations on any aspect of teaching the eighteenth-century within a global context. Presentations might focus on strategies for teaching transcultural and transnational encounters; travel, trade, or colonialism; eighteenth-century world literatures; or any text or set of texts—written, oral, visual, aural, or material—that “globalizes” students’ engagement with the eighteenth century. We welcome presentations on the teaching of subject matter that exposes, interrogates, unsettles, decenters, or displaces a Eurocentric world view.
October 24, 2022, is the extended deadline.

As more climate doomsday predictions continue to surface from scientists, journalists, and scholars, the fight to combat global climate collapse can sometimes feel hopeless—petrified by the saturation of negative affects in literary, theoretical, and cultural production. While continuing with neoliberal business-as-usual is untenable, scholars have begun to recognize that doom and gloom predictions alone actually make individuals less likely to act.

With the turn towards extractivism and energy as objects for critical inquiry, minerals and fossil fuels have become crucial additions to categories of cultural, political, and materialist analyses. The international workshop Archives of the Planetary Mine will explore the intersections between culture, materiality, politics, energy consumption, and extractivism across the Americas, throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Its purpose is to address the geohistorical magnitudes of energy consumption and critical engagements with the logic of extraction as a condition of possibility for cultural production.
In his seminal work, Poetics of Relation (1990), Édouard Glissant posited the term “commonplace” as a means to rethink the role of genre in a transatlantic frame. Taking as its object the "flood of convergences, publishing itself in the guise of the commonplace,” this formulation complicates any attempt to read genre as a closed system of inherited traits. Rather, the notion of the commonplace draws our attention to the unspoken norms that sustain literary communities across time and space. Positive in Glissant’s account, commonplaces have also worked to police the boundaries of what counts as literature and who is counted within its canons of literary value.
