CfP for the Midwest Modern Language Association 53rd Annual Convention
in St. Louis, MO.
Conference dates: November 3-6, 2011 at St. Louis Union Station Marriott.
Conference theme: "Play...No, Seriously."
Session title: Expressions, Emotions, Embodiment: Dramatics and the German Stage
Dramaturgy has a long tradition in German cultural production spanning
from the passion plays of the Middle Ages, through the drama of the
German Classicists to Brecht and beyond. This panel embraces the
conference theme by focusing on the social and cultural discourses of
drama on the German stage. We seek to explore the ways in which
emotions, sentimentalities, as well as physicalities illuminate the
importance of the theorization of these concepts. The panel organizers
invite papers on theories of performance, reception history/-ies
and/or interpretations of individual texts that elucidate inquiries
into dramatics in a broader context.
Please submit a 250-word abstract to Angineh Djavadghazaryans
([log in to unmask]) and Ervin Malakaj ([log in to unmask])
by June 3, 2011.
