CFP: Shakespeare and Islam (journal issue)

Scholars have long associated Shakespeare with the wider world beyond early
modern England's shores, notably Europe of course and, in the wake of New
Historicism, the Americas. One of the most interesting recent developments
in early modern studies, however, has been the recognition that writers
looked towards the East as well as westwards - to the Islamic world, and the
Ottoman Empire in particular.

Europe, 1500-1800"

An Interdisciplinary Conference Sponsored by
the Early Modern Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara

March 9-10. 2007

What were early modern publics? How were they formed? What needs did
they serve for those who participated in them? And how did they
relate to the emergence of a cultural formation that we recognize as
distinctly early modern? These are among the questions we seek to
address in this conference.
