Call for Papers: ACCUTE
DANIEL DAVID MOSES: PLAYWRIGHT, POET and ANTHOLOGIST.
In connection with the planned performance of D.D. Moses' play The Dreaming
Beauty by the De-ba-jeh-mu-jig Theatre Group at the 2001 ACCUTE conference
(with the playwright in attendance), I want to propose a session which
will focus on the plays and poems by this Delaware artist and writer without
excluding comparisons with other Aboriginal literary works. Thus papers
on, for example, the development of Moses' dramatic work but also on the
role of "the tragic" and "the comic" in his and other Aboriginal plays
would be welcome, as well as a discussion on the social function of theatre
in Aboriginal communities and on the genre of childrens plays/ literature
(like The Dreaming Beauty) in an Aboriginal context. Besides, I
want to encourage presentations on Daniel David Moses as the co-editor
of the widely used Anthology of Canadian Native Literature in English with
special consideration of the anthology's role in the canon formation of
"Native" literature in academia.
Please send three copies of proposals (300-500 words) or completed papers
(12-13 pages), 100-word abstracts, and 50- word bio-bibliographic sketches
by November 15, 2000, along with a disk or email copy to:
