CFP: [Renaissance] Proposed Titus Andronicus Collection (2/28/09)

updated: 
Tuesday, January 20, 2009 - 8:17pm
JP Hehmeyer

Proposals are sought for a collection of essays on Shakespeare's Titus
Andronicus that consider the role of bodies, both physical and conceptual,
in the text and on the stage.

Renewed scholarly interest in Titus has largely focused on issues of gender
and alterity, or the role of the text in its broader critical tradition.
The proposed collection, "This Hollow Prison of My Flesh": Bodies in Titus
Andronicus, instead approaches the text by examining the pronounced role
that bodies of all types play in it.
