In response to Stephen J. Gagen and Rick Robinson; a Washington Post article 2
or 3 Sundays ago revisited the curse of the Scottish play in the aftermath of a
recent production and could report nothing sinister.

Sorry about that, I was just posting a file sent to me by a grad. student. The
conference is 28-30 March 1996.  Write to the address in the announcement about
further details.

[This was forwarded by C. David Frankel from the THEATRE list. --HMC]
 
Ngaio Marsh was also a fine theatre director, both in London and in her native
New Zealand. She founded the Canterbury University Drama Dept. in Christchurch,
NZ, training some good people for the London stage as as locally. She was also
a very insightful performance reviewer -- I was on the receiving end a couple
of times -- and was much in demand for NZ radio and TV.  I've never forgotten
her Twelfth Night production which she wrote up in an early issue of
Shakespeare Survey.  It's nice to do homage to a famous lady who also wrote
great detective novels.
 
Margaret Loftus Ranald.

Subject: 6.0895  Queer Theory
Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0895  Queer Theory
 
For Robert Applebaum, particularly:
 
I did not submit my question about queer theory with "bitter 'ressentiment'".
I am honestly unfamiliar with the term and sought either verification that it
was what it sounded like vernacularly, i.e., the theory of queers, or
clarification of a possibly specialized terminology.  Since only Stuart Rice's
clarification has come forth, I assume "queer theory" indeed deals with
homosexuality.  Just because I consider something like "queer theory" to be a
rather crude expression for academic language, why, Mr. Applebaum, attribute
bitterness to me?  I would feel similarly about an area of study designated
"cripple theory", or any of a dozen other slang expressions.  Scholars should
be able to come up with a term which is both more accurate and more
appropriate, since the adjective "queer" is more emotionally tagged than it is
precise, and you don't even want to begin worrying with the uncertainties in
its use as a noun.
 
I appreciate your several suggestions for following up on gender studies and
gender criticism.  I might suggest advocates and explorers of gender studies
also read _Eve's Rib_ by Robert Poole.  BTW, you did achieve the "thickly"
which you sought.
 
Sincerely,
Bob Dennis
