Jane Eyre, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps, Rebecca M. Baker 2016 Director

Jane Eyre, Diane C. Merchant, Robert Clements, Tim Phipps, Rebecca M. Baker

Robert Clements, M.Ed.

This new adaptation of the beloved Gothic novel imaginatively incorporates haunting visual images, dreamlike memories and innovative staging. Orphaned Jane Eyre overcomes her lonely and abusive childhood to become an accomplished governess for Mr. Rochester’s ward at mysterious Thornfield, a place with dark and terrifying secrets. Her psychological journey allows her to triumph over the oppression of the Victorian era, in a script that Chicago Magazine called “a tide of loving and sure storytelling that treats its audience with reverence and respect.”

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

Abstract

Issues of transition are always difficult and transforming founding assumptions to suit changing conditions can be a challenge for Women’s Studies and Gender Studies programs in the corporate university environment. This essay explains how performance of Fefu and Her Friends by Marie Irene Fornes in a mansion on campus led faculty participants in History, Classics, Modern Languages, Theatre, Communication, Social Work, and Nursing to re-vision their professional lives and the institutional status of the Women’s Studies and Gender Studies program through a new appreciation for interdisciplinarity, derived from using performance as research. Each of eight faculty reflect ...


'Nosferatu' Revisted, Russell D. Fewster 2016 University of South Australia

'Nosferatu' Revisted, Russell D. Fewster

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

In 2014 I set out to adapt and direct a new stage production entitled Nosferatu The Undead based on the Dracula fable. My research enquiry focussed on the question of how to approach such a classic while avoiding the stereotypes and clichés that have accrued with this seminal work. I critically reflect here on the processes involved in writing the play script and then rehearsing the performance. This is an ethnographic account and is based on participant observation where the artist participates but also steps back to document and analyse practice. In order that such a case study has multiple ...

Superiority In Humor Theory, Sheila Lintott 2016 Bucknell University

Superiority In Humor Theory, Sheila Lintott

Faculty Journal Articles

In this article, I consider the standard interpretation of the superiority theory of humor attributed to Plato, Aristotle, and Hobbes, according to which the theory allegedly places feelings of superiority at the center of humor and comic amusement. The view that feelings of superiority are at the heart of all comic amusement is wildly implausible. Therefore textual evidence for the interpretation of Plato, Aristotle, or Hobbes as offering the superiority theory as an essentialist theory of humor is worth careful consideration. Through textual analysis I argue that not one of these three philosophers defends an essentialist theory of comic amusement ...
