The Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture will hold its annual conference in Baltimore, MD, October 27-29, 2006.

Shakespeare's position in popular as well as high culture remains strong, with new works in fiction, film and other areas. But Shakespeare is not the only Renaissance figure to have a presence in modern popular culture. Other writers, historical figures, events and debates are still part of the popular landscape. This area welcomes topics on any aspect of the overlap or intersection between the Early Modern period (roughly 1500-1700) and the Postmodern one. Topics for this area can include, but are not limited to:

–Shakespeare on film, in TV, comics or fiction

Children and Performance in Early Modernity
Renaissance Society of America Conference, Miami 2007

The Duke Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is sponsoring a
session on children in the contexts of early modern performance. We are
seeking abstracts for papers that consider any aspect of this subject --
court culture, children's companies, public performances, and private
environments. Ideally we would like to assemble a session that touches
on the implications and conditions of child actors from a variety of
cultural settings and in a variety of modes (theater, music, dance, etc.).
