Shakespeare and Dance

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 2:40pm

Dance is a prevalent art form in early modern culture, and an established part of Shakespeare’s oeuvre. From masques to interludes to comedy endings to courtly entertainments and weddings: dancing is frequently seen as a cross-class and cross-generic form of entertainment. From the early modern period onward, Shakespeare’s poetry and plays have been adapted into different art forms, including dance and music, which offer their own expressive repertoire to interpret Shakespeare’s works.

Call for Proposals: Literary Studies

Tuesday, October 8, 2019 - 2:34pm
James McGovern / Oxford University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, April 2, 2020

We invite proposals for monographs or edited volumes for our Series in Literary Studies.

Literary studies is one of the richest and most interdisciplinary fields of study, encompassing a wide array of valid approaches, from the historical, to the theoretical, to the experimental. Broadly speaking, works of literary scholarship aim to change or enhance the way we read texts by investigating their complexity.

We are particularly interested in books on English Literature, although we are open to proposals which examine any type of world literature.

The scope of the present call is broad. Possible topics include (non-comprehensive list):

Pulpit, Playhouse and Page: Theatrical and Non-Theatrical Exchange in early modern England

Monday, September 23, 2019 - 1:25pm
University of Sheffield
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 1, 2019

This two-day conference will explore connections between theatrical and non-theatrical texts in early modern England. Theatrical culture functioned in vibrant relation to both non-theatrical performances (such as sermons and entertainments) and non-dramatic poetry and prose. However, moments of exchange between different genres have too often been obscured by disciplinary silos.

By bringing together scholars with a wide variety of interests the conference will open up new research questions which address the creative exchanges between plays and a wide range of non-theatrical texts and performances.

Topics for consideration might include:
