'Theatre People of Shakespeare's Time': A Special Issue of the Journal Shakespeare

updated: 
Friday, September 8, 2017 - 11:57am
Shakespeare: Journal of the British Shakespeare Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Richard Burbage, a member of the family who gave us the first purpose-built theatre in Shakespeare's London. By exploring his life, and those around him, historians have been able to unearth much valuable information about the early modern theatre industry. Scholarship about other theatre people – prompted by their work, the archive, or both – has similarly added to our knowledge of the theatre in Shakespeare's time. We have learnt about the period's theatre from Philip Henslowe's diary, Anthony Munday's pageants, Richard Brome's contract, and George Wilkins' lawsuits.

Memory and Identity in High Medieval Canterbury

updated: 
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 1:03pm
paper session at the Leeds IMC 2018
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 15, 2017

From the impact of its eleventh-century rebuilding to the spread of Thomas Becket's cult across Europe and the Near East, Canterbury was an influential cultural center in the high medieval world. In keeping with the IMC theme, this session examines the role of memory and identity at Canterbury in the 11th-13th centuries. How did Canterbury's competing spiritual communities imagine themselves fitting into England's -- and Christendom's -- past and present? What insights can the manuscripts from Canterbury's scriptoria provide into the role of texts and images in articulating overlapping religious, linguistic, and political identities? How were Canterbury's identities translated beyond the British Isles?
