CFP: Romantic Shakespeare. Shakespeare Yearbook, Winter 2007.
Henry James once noted that to the English an outing to Stratford was
not just a day out, not just a visit to a pretty old town with a
famous dead author, but a pilgrimage to "The Holy of Holies"; the
scene itself of the "nativity." James was being ironic, but to many
editors, and writers, and theatre personalities working in the era of
the English Romantic Movement, grappling with the works of
Shakespeare became a serious devotional duty.

Early Modern Women Writers Across Borders
A session at the annual meeting of the Renaissance Society of America,
22-24 March 2007 in Miami, Florida
Early modern women writers are frequently examined in terms that are
limited to their own countries. And yet, we might fruitfully compare
women writers in different countries and look at how women writers
themselves transcended national boundaries, by participating in
international debates, translating texts, situating themselves in
relation to writers from abroad, and in numerous other ways.

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
