APA - 2013 Seattle

Organizer: Andrew S. Becker, Virginia Tech and Chris Ann Matteo, Independent Scholar

Sponsored by the Society for the Oral Reading of Greek and Latin Literature

This panel will treat the dramatic verses of two Medeas: that of Euripides and Seneca's later version. Whether measured in Greek iambic trimeter, or in the Latin senarius, both performances elicit distinct dramatic effects. We hope to solicit new contributions from scholars and performers interested in exploring rhythmical, metrical, or any other sonic/acoustic aspects of the language of the plays (or other plays for comparanda). Questions could include (meant to by suggestive, not limiting): What relation do rhythm and sound have to other elements of theatrical production? When, where, and how does meter and rhythm influence the effects of passages in the plays? To what degree can translations hope to recall the Euripidean or Senecan rhythms and sounds in versions that would be stageworthy?

Presenters are expected to illustrate their arguments and enliven the delivery of their papers by performing aloud relevant passages. Abstracts should be sent as attachments to Andrew S. Becker (Virginia Tech, Cette adresse email est protégée contre les robots des spammeurs, vous devez activer Javascript pour la voir. ) by: March 1, 2012.

Abstracts must be no more than one page and contain no indication of authorship. In accordance with APA regulations, all abstracts for papers will be read anonymously by three outside readers. Please follow the instructions for the format of individual abstracts on the APA's web site.
