‘For they are the abstract and brief chronicles of the time’: Negotiating Shakespearean Characters in Performance from Past to Present

Tuesday, June 28, 2016 - 11:14am
One of the Seminars of Asian Shakespeare Association, Biennial International Conference, New Delhi, 1-3 December, 2016
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, July 15, 2016

In criticism, relying on character study or treating Shakespearean characters as real
people, has often been censured. But, in performance, where actors especially need to
get under the skin of the characters they portray, Shakespearean personae do exhibit
some kind of biographical reality.

Rethinking Early Modern Subjectivity (NeMLA 2017)

Monday, June 27, 2016 - 11:31am
Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

Modernity is often defined as a series of political, social, and economic shifts related to the emergence of an autonomous subject. Nevertheless, there is a lack of consensus of how to measure the underlying forces driving this supposed change of paradigm. In light of recent approaches to subjectivity, we invite participants to circulate 5-8 pages papers (with theoretical or empirical foci on the topic) and discuss them after a brief presentation. The goal of the seminar is therefore to interrogate the condition of the “early modern subject” through the analysis of established binaries such as (but not limited to) unity/plurality, transcendence/immanence, individual/communal, East/West, local/global, medieval/modern, etc.
