Appel à contributions – « Black Identities on the Operatic Stage » – 15 mai 2023

Appel à contributions pour le projet « Black Identities on the Operatic Stage ».

« Following the symposium “Black Identities on the Operatic Stage” (UNC Greensboro, 2022), Oxford University Press invited the organizers to submit a proposal for an anthology of essays on this topic. The collection will be edited by Naomi André, Elizabeth L. Keathley, and Kristen M. Turner.

We seek proposals for essays about Black opera in its most capacious sense. We welcome proposals on all aspects of the composition, social context, production, performance, history, reception, and criticism of Black opera and the experiences of its practitioners (composers, librettists, impresarios, stage directors, choreographers, performers, critics, companies, theaters, etc.).

Essays might address such topics as these (not an exhaustive list):

  • Opera and the Black Atlantic
  • Individual operas by Black composers and/or librettists
  • The critical and/or historical reception of Black operas and/or performers
  • Black opera’s interaction with its social and political contexts
  • Gender and sexuality in Black opera
  • Patronage and support networks for Black opera
  • Migration and geographies of Black opera, e.g., the loci of traditions or institutions
  • Technologies of Black opera
We especially encourage proposals concerning Black opera beyond U.S. borders. »
