CFP: Shakespeare And Our Times Conference (9/15/15; 4/14-16/16)

SHAKESPEARE AND OUR TIMES

NEW DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 15

An interdisciplinary, international conference on the significance of Shakespeare in the early twenty-first century Old Dominion University, Norfolk, VA. April 14-16, 2016

Plenary speakers: Jonathan Dollimore, Ania Loomba, and Leah Marcus

What does William Shakespeare mean to us today, and what traces of his thinking can still be seen in our lives? In the context of a week-long, multi-faceted investigation of Shakespeare’s continued presence in our cultural landscape, this three-day conference will probe contemporary manifestations of the Bard. To mark the 400th anniversary of the playwright’s death we will seek his footprint as we question the legacy of the early colonial mindset in the twenty-first century. Why does this figure among all others endure so persistently? At stake are questions of global imperialism and how it intersects with race, ethnicity, gender, and Shakespeare’s extended influence in what were, for him, newly-emerging colonial locales. How, then, is Shakespeare performed, translated, analyzed today? Abstracts and panel proposals welcome on these and other topics: Shakespeare and Popular Culture Gender/Sexuality in Shakespeare Shakespeare and the Idea of the Posthuman Shakespeare’s Cities Shakespeare and International Relations Shakespeare and the Sciences Why Shakespeare? Shakespeare for Whom? Shakespeare and Disaster Management Shakespeare and Contemporary Censorship Translating Shakespeare The Rhetoric of Shakespeare Shakespeare and America, Shakespeare in America Shakespeare’s Music Staging Shakespeare, Filming Shakespeare, Now Shakespeare and Language Theorizing Shakespeare in the Twenty-First century Event website: https://www.odu.edu/partnerships/community/conferences/shakespeare-400-y…

250-word abstracts for individual 20-minute papers, or 3-paper panel sessions can be submitted online at http://goo.gl/forms/Cd582zZpa1 by August 15, 2015.

* Advanced graduate students welcome to apply.

B&L is a peer-reviewed, online, multimedia scholarly journal and winner of the CELJ’s “Best New Journal” award for 2007. We publish two issues each year. In addition to the main section, which features articles and article clusters, we regularly run three dedicated sections: Appropriations in Performance, Digital Appropriations, and Book Reviews.

We are soliciting contributions to a cluster of short essays on the topic of “Shakespeare and Dance.” Potential contributors may interpret this topic in a number of ways, including, but not limited to:

Adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays for the dance stage, across a variety of dance types, including ballet, modern, hip-hop, and others.

Dancing within performances of Shakespeare’s plays, in theatre, film, television, etc.

Dance and movement theories and Shakespearean performance.

Dance as metaphor within Shakespeare’s plays, and its implications for performance.

Deadline extended! Attending to Early Modern Women Conference 2015

UW-Milwaukee – Attending to Early Modern Women Conference 2015.

Good news! The deadline for ATW proposals has been extended to November 15, 2014, according to an email sent by Merry Wiesner-Hanks this morning.

I have heard a number of stories of people who lost collaborators on workshops proposals along the way, and this is a great chance to revive proposals by seeking out new collaborators. ATW has a place for “workshop ideas” where you can share your ideas and seek out collaborators: http://www4.uwm.edu/letsci/conferences/atw2015/workshopideas.cfm

 

CFP: Elizabeth I, Recalcitrant Wives, and Domestic Discord: Kalamazoo, May 14-17, 2015 | cfp.english.upenn.edu

This panel will consider Elizabeth and her ruling strategies in relation to the issues embedded in the domestic structures in early modern England. In the ideal marriage extolled in contemporary conduct literature, a wife should exhibit obedience and subjection, but the recurrence of “shrewd” and “froward” women in popular texts of the period indicates that the spectacle of assertive female subjectivity was both present and inconvenient. As the reign of Elizabeth I drew to a close, the figure of the recalcitrant wife attracted increasing attention. We invite papers exploring the ways Elizabeth’s queenship related to and shaped the use and abuse of domestic authority in prose, poetry, and drama.

This session is sponsored by Queen Elizabeth I Society.

Please email the abstracts (300 words or less) to Anna Riehl Bertolet, ariehl@auburn.edu, no later than September 15, 2014.
