EXTENDED DEADLINE: Perspectives on Eighteenth-Century Theater and Performance (South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies )
Organization: South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
Event: South Central Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
This panel seeks proposals on theater and performance of the long eighteenth-century, especially those that address the theme of perspective. Essays might consider the way that perspective functioned thematically in plays and other public performances, such as opera, dance, and music, and the ways that perspective (e.g., perspective scenery) affected the material conditions of performance. What perspectives did eighteenth-century audiences have on theater and performance? How did these perspectives in the public discourse shape the drama and performances of the period, and how was eighteenth-century society shaped by these cultural institutions? Submit abstracts of 250-500 words to Ashley Bender at email@example.com by December 14. For more on SCSECS 2019, visit http://www.scsecs.net/scsecs/2019/2019cfp.html.
