deadline for submissions:

This roundtable seeks to tackle the vexed yet essential issue of Shakespeare in translation. Panelists are encouraged to approach this in a number of ways, such as direct translation and intercultural adaptation. Papers could discuss a particular translation of a particular play, compare and contrast previous translations, explore a more open adaptation, or discuss the aesthetic, cultural, even political issues at stake when translating Shakespeare. Papers are not restricted to textual translation, as papers on dramatic or cinematic translation and adaptation are also very much welcome.

Our panel in 2017 will consider Elizabeth and her ruling strategies in relation to the material culture of early modern England. How did Elizabeth participate in production and consumption of material culture? How did material culture of early modern England reflect, shape, or ignore Elizabeth's taste, needs, and preferences? What household practices were modeled on those of the royal household? How did the city of London, the royal palaces, and places Elizabeth visited during her progresses accommodate the queen's needs? How were the material aspects of trade, gift-giving, cooking, writing, theater, etc. affected by Elizabeth's prominent position as a ruler?

THE FINE ART OF LYING: DISGUISE, DISSIMULATION AND COUNTERFEITING IN EARLY MODERN CULTURE

Florence, 7 April 2017

The 2017 IASEMS Graduate Conference at The British Institute of Florence is a one-day interdisciplinary forum open to PhD students and researchers who have obtained their doctorates within the past 5 years.

Dissimulation is but a faint kind of policy, or wisdom; for it asketh a strong wit, and a strong heart, to know when to tell truth, and to do it. Therefore it is the weaker sort of politics, that are the great dissemblers! (Francis Bacon, “Of Dissimulation”)

Transformation has long been discussed in studies of early modern English drama. From an interest in Ovidian transformation to the way cross-dressed actors were feared to be “transformed” into effeminate men by performing the roles of women, scholars have looked at specific ways in which transformation incited fear, awe, and excitement in the playhouse. Next Fall, the Folger Shakespeare Library is presenting a symposium, “Early Modern Theatre and Conversion,” that explores issues of how religious “transformation” is represented on stage, as well as how theatre is able to “convert” religious conversion.

The shadow of Geoffrey Chaucer loomed large over the century after his death.  Later poets such as John Lydgate used words coined by him, explicitly referenced Chaucer’s mastery of poetry, and mentioned their relationship with him in the development of their poetic personae and the writing of their poetic works.  These connections, in turn, have left a tradition of scholarship that takes such conceits at face value and maligns the poetry of the fifteenth century for allegedly not being the equal of Chaucer’s.

Whether it is tweeting Lydgate’s Fall of Princes, making witnesses of his poems both in and out of the codex available to scholars worldwide, or engaging in digital prosopography, the “Digital Turn” in recent literary scholarship provides heretofore unavailable opportunities for engagement with the poetry of John Lydgate.  However, this is not the first time the introduction of new technology has effected reception, understanding, and interpretation of the poet.  The shift from manuscript to print spread Lydgate’s poems in numbers that were not possible before, while modern editorial practices developed during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have created a set of “standard” editions of the poet’s works, for good and ill.

Medieval studies has made serious inroads into inquiries surrounding the relationship between objects and environments, between objects and their spiritual power, as well as between descriptions of objects and their literal presence. These issues also pertain to Lydgate studies, as his relationship with matter is complex. As Lisa H.
