Exploring the Erotic

Tuesday 17th September – Thursday 19th September 2013
Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Presentations

The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference

The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference seeks proposals for papers or panels from across today's theoretical and methodological landscape that engage Courtliness and Convention in the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. How do Shakespearean plays illustrate and critique early modern conceptions of conventional courtly behavior? More broadly, how do the era's plays and poems incorporate, problematize, and establish social convention – political, literary, educational, rhetorical, or otherwise? How do we understand the conventions of courtliness in today's theaters and classrooms?

Can writing from a position of defeat be productive or dissident, or does the writing of defeat suppose the defeat of writing?
