Not Altogether Feste: Shakespeare's Indirect Engagements with "Foolery"

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 10, 2019

Paper abstracts needed for PAMLA (Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association) Conference Special Session on Shakespeare:

Shakespeare’s plays abound in fools direct, but the language, gesture, and attitude of “foolery” run through his work even aside from the antics of characters such as Feste, Lear’s Fool, or Touchstone. This panel will concentrate on moments in Shakespeare that are not so much driven by the playwright’s most famous practitioners of the fool’s trade, but rather subtly informed and structured by that trade and by the perspective it affords.

Midwest Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 19, 2019

The “Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism” permanent section of the 2019 Midwest Modern Language Association invites proposals that engage with this year’s conference theme of “Duality, Doubles, and Doppelgangers.” Scholarship that explores issues of duality in Shakespeare’s literature, and in early modern culture broadly, from myriad perspectives will be considered.

Exploring doubling in Shakespeare’s works might begin with attention to any of the following list of topics:

· Duality of texts and paratexts

· Double-meanings (linguistics, semantics, multiple interpretations)

· Double entendre

· Twins, doubles in drama

· Doubled literary sources
