he Alliance for the Study of Adoption and Culture seeks paper proposals for its guaranteed session at the MLA Annual Convention in Philadelphia, PA January 5-8, 2017.
Adoption in Contemporary Drama and Performance
This panel seeks submissions that explore the engagement of contemporary dramatic literature, theatrical practices, various kinds of performance, and drama criticism with the topic of adoption. We welcome emerging and established directions in adoption studies as well as comparative and cross-cultural approaches. We are especially interested in papers on recently produced plays and one-person shows such as Naomi Wallace’s Night is a Room, Quiara Alegria Hudes’s Water by the Spoonful, Winter Miller’s Conspicuous, Lisa Marie Rollins’s Ungrateful Daughter, Rolin Jones’s The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow, and R.A. Shiomi’s Mask Dance.
Please send your 300-word proposals to Marina Fedosik at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1.
