NeMLA 2015: Unexpected Affect in Shakespearean Drama

updated: 
Tuesday, June 10, 2014 - 9:31am
full name / name of organization: 
Northeast Modern Language Association
contact email: 

This panel will explore the ways in which Shakespearean drama delivers emotional intensity (passions, affectations, embodiment, etc.) in unexpected places. When might certain emotional reactions be surprising in Shakespeare's plays? Are there particular characters that share their feelings unexpectedly, yet with astonishing resonance?

The significance of this session is to explore whether, after four centuries of exposure, these can still be capable of emotionally shocking. In today's academic climate, do Shakespeare's words have the potential to be so emotionally disturbing that students might/can/should expect a "trigger warning" on syllabi?

Universality in the Renaissance
RSA Berlin 2015

This interdisciplinary panel asks how Renaissance notions of universality differ from modern paradigms that idealize a human subject abstracted from culture, history, and the material world. The panel seeks a broad variety of approaches to its topics and will strive to think through the connections and tensions between perspectives in different disciplines and in relation to different texts, images, and cultural objects.
