Passion, Power, and Rhetoric: Latin Influences on Early Drama

 

The twenty-fourth International Medieval Congress will take place in Leeds, UK, from 3-6 July 2017.  The IMC seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of all aspects of Medieval Studies. However, every year, the IMC chooses a special thematic strand which – for 2017 – is ‘Otherness’. This focus has been chosen for its wide application across all centuries and regions and its impact on all disciplines devoted to this epoch.

Barbara Mello
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, June 5, 2016

This panel seeks proposals that examine the performance of the monstrous on the early modern stage. Performances of the monstrous include but are not limited to deformity, animals, devils, witches, and other supernatural beings performed on stage. Proposals should consider the vibrant medieval iconographic images of the monstrous that continued to stimulate the early modern imagination. Questions to be addressed might include: how did staging the monstrous secure or collpase boundaries between the natural and supernatural realms? Did the monstrous on stage enforce or interrogate political, cultural, or religious authority? How might staging the monstrous call attention to the cultural power of the stage?

This session seeks papers about electronic editions of medieval and early modern texts in both scholarship and teaching. How can such texts be best executed and then distributed?

The Medieval “Freak Show”: Putting the Monstrous on Display in the Middle Ages

 

People and creatures perceived as monstrous or wondrous are often put on display for profit or exploitation. At times, this exhibitionism presents itself as “education.” What has popularly been called the “freak show” achieved its height via the emergence of working class entertainments that transformed visual cultures in the nineteenth century, as exemplified in P.T. Barnum’s circus and its sideshows, but also including innovations such as the stereoscope and the panorama, which prepared the rise of cinema and, later, television.
