Writing, Performance, and Theatricality in George Sand's Works
18th International George Sand Conference.
When: Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008, time TBA
Where: UCSB, Santa Barbara
Age limit: Not available
This three-day conference will focus on an overlooked dimension of the innovative writings of George Sand (1804-1876): her thorough engagement with all forms of visual, spatial, and bodily performances. Panelists will build on two scholarly trends: 1) feminist scholarship; 2) performance studies. As a socially and politically active writer, Sand sought the realization of theater's revolutionary potential and supported the role of theater within a culture of participatory democracy. With its interdisciplinary reach, our conference will include scholars of nineteenth-century French literature and culture as well as scholars in the fields of women's s and gender studies, socio-historical studies, dramatic arts, and performance and visual studies.
