CFP: Social Justice and the Golden Age Comedia
This is a call for an EDITED VOLUME on Social Justice in Spanish Golden Age Theater.
This edited volume will focus on issues of social justice in theatrical works of Golden Age Spain. For example, the 2013 Repertorio Español production of Fuenteovejuna illustrates how relevant social justice issues are in Golden Age Spain and how well those issues translate to the modern world. We are looking for papers that discuss one or more of the following topics: social justice issues in Golden Age plays; modern productions of Golden Age plays that borrow from social justice settings such as Occupy, 15m, YoSoy132 or similar; or theoretical approaches to Golden Age plays that incorporate social justice topics.
Please send a 500-word abstract outlining topic and approach, along with a CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2017. Decisions will be made by February 15, 2017. The anticipated submission date for final essays is October 15, 2017. Papers from accepted abstracts will undergo a peer-review process before final acceptance.
This project is a collaboration to be edited by Erin Alice Cowling Cowling (Hampden-Sydney College), Glenda Nieto Cuebas (Ohio Wesleyan University), Tania de Miguel Magro (West Virginia University), and Mina García (Elon University). Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
