Membership Drive and New Call for Papers

Hi everyone. After a couple of inquiries, we’ve decided to postpone the drama and sex topic for HPR volume 6. Volume 5 welcomes essays on Pinter, modern and contemporary drama, and Pinter and pedagogy. I didn’t realize people were working on essays on Pinter and modern drama in general. Be assured, these essays are welcome! Essays are due 1 August 2020. Essays on drama and sex are due 1 August 2021. Best, Ann

CFP. Volume 5 of the Harold Pinter Review welcomes essays on Pinter and pedagogy, Pinter in the classroom, Pinter in the acting/directing/design class, etc. But given the pandemic, we thought we would spice things up a bit and also call for papers on Sex and Modern/Contemporary Drama.

Pinter at MMLA Chicago November 14-17 2019

The International Harold Pinter Society is seeking submissions for the Pinter Panel at the Midwest Modern Language Association to be held in Chicago on November 14-17, 2019.

(Re)Pinter: Riffs, Recreations, and Reproductions

Harold Pinter’s poetry, drama, fiction, creative non-fiction, political non-fiction, and screenwriting engage in various creative and critical modalities, both drawing from and influencing the work of other artists and creative writers. To celebrate the mutiple-modality of Pinter’s influences and legacy, The International Harold Pinter Society invites creative presentations, including poetry, short plays, monologues, short fiction, film, images, enactive presentations, imaginative production design concepts, and other playful alternatives to the standard conference paper. Works should in some way respond to, riff on, or register the Pinteresque in more or less attenuated ways. Please send a brief sample of the work to be presented–a selection of images, a discursive description, sample dialogue, or excerpts, to ann.hall by April 15th, 2019, as well as a one-paragraph explanation of the way proposed work connects to Pinter. Please also indicate what (modest) production/presentation and logistic needs you may require, including AV and additional readers. Please include a title, CV, and contact information.
