TheGonzoGroupTheatre: "Waiting for Godot" 10/20-30

| Aucun Commentaire

TheGonzoGroupTheatre presents
"Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett

While waiting near a tree on a barren stretch of road for someone named Godot, Vladimir and Estragon inhabit a drama spun from their own consciousness. What results is a comical wordplay of poetry, dreamscapes, and nonsense. A seminal work of twentieth-century drama, Waiting for Godot remains one of the most magical and beautiful stories of our time.

Cast includes: Nick James, Luke Weber, Michael Ooms, Paul McGuire, and Jordan Alexander

"Waiting for Godot" runs October 20th-30th at the Lowry Lab Theater in downtown Saint Paul. $12-$18. For tickets and information, visit www.gonzotheatre.org.

Two on-line journals offering long review essays

| Aucun Commentaire

Two new journals in medieval studies, Postmedieval and New Medieval Literatures are both publishing critical review essays. As Postmedieval states,

"Each issue will also feature a book review essay, and unlike most other medieval studies journals, we will not be incorporating reviews of individual books (with, say, five to ten reviews of single titles per issue). Rather, each issue of the journal will include a review essay (of 6,000-8,000 words) that will address a particularly pressing theme or topic within medieval studies and the humanities more broadly, and it will include books that are related to each other within the rubric of this theme or topic. These reviews will include books written by medievalists as well as by scholars in other fields and periods in order to draw for our readership what we see as the very important connections and conjunctions between work in medieval studies and contemporary thought. These reviews will be written by scholars in medieval studies whose work is connected to the theme or topic of the books collectively under review, thereby ensuring a review that will not just remain on the surface of these books, but which will make a critical contribution to the subject(s) addressed in the books under review."

Thanks to Mary Franklin-Brown for the tip!
