CALL FOR PAPERS
In the 18th century, a movement called Romanticism marked a radical shift in
established thought and aesthetics. In 2009, another such shift is on the
horizon. The world is at war and the global economy in crisis; what can we
expect from the arts? Are film, theatre and television going to reflect or
distract in challenging times?
JAM 2009 invites papers considering new trends across media, identifying the
developing landscape of the performing arts. Nu-Romanticism is not a dogma,
but an open question to postgraduates and early career researchers. Papers
may relate to the following areas of discussion:
Form and Content
Space, Place and Landscape
Spectatorship and Social Relevance
Performance and Performativity
Please send a 250-word proposal and a 100-word biographical note to:
