CFP Edited Collection on Shakespearean Adaptations; Submission deadline 12/01/15

Tuesday, November 3, 2015 - 9:37am
Verena Theile/North Dakota State University

Chapter proposals are invited for a collection of essays that will explore Shakespearean adaptations as statements, often assertions about the nature of the work they engage. That adaptations have contributed to Shakespeare's afterlife cannot be disputed. They are re-imaginings of his work in a new context and against a new medium, and, as such, adaptations of Shakespeare are derivative and unique at the same time. With that premise in mind, the history of Shakespeare in adaptation may also uncover the history of assumptions about what Shakespeare constitutes–as a playwright, poet, cultural icon, or otherwise.

The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name."
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream

This call for papers is meant to solicit wide-ranging abstracts on the possibilities of the theme of"creation" in British literature of the 16th and 17th centuries for the 47th annual conference of the College English Association, a collegial gathering of scholars and teachers in English studies.

Medieval Globalisms: Movement in the Global Middle Ages (8-9 April 2016)

updated: 
Monday, November 2, 2015 - 11:30am
Medeival Studies Insititute of Indiana University, Bloomington

The Medieval Studies Institute of Indiana University invites proposals dealing with any aspect of Medieval Globalisms: movement, discourse, and cultural exchange. Scholars have rigorously interrogated modern models of globalism, but what does "global" mean for the Middle Ages? This symposium aims to identify the global perspectives that emerged in this period in which people, ideas, and objects traversed the globe through travel, trade, war, and exodus, and to explore the larger geographic context in which the Middle Ages occurred. In addition to the geographic, papers might explore studies of medieval conceptions of the globe and its relation to the self.
