CFP: Knowledge/Power in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period (South
Africa)(3/15/06; 9/6/06 -- 9/9/06)
I am soliciting abstracts for a planned special session submission for
the 2006 Modern Language Association convention in Philadelphia, Dec.
The subject, "The Early Modern Transatlantic," reflects the growing
recognition in both American and European literary studies that
cultures on both sides of the Atlantic between roughly 1580 and 1800
were profoundly shaped by the effects of contact and colonization. To
what degree do both Europe and America come to see themselves in
international terms in this period? How do Europeans as well as early
Americans begin to understand themselves as world citizens? How can we

2007 sees the two-hundredth anniversary of the first publication of two
books that have played distinctively significant roles in the mediation
of Shakespeare for children, and the reception of his works by them:
Charles and Mary Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare, and Henrietta Bowdler's
The Family Shakespeare (revised by her brother Thomas a decade later).
As guest-editors of a cluster of essays in the December 2006 issue of
the new Routledge journal Shakespeare, we wish to take this anniversary
as an opportunity to reflect on some of the meanings and consequences of
Shakespeare's global travels through the cultures of childhood over the
last two hundred years.
