On the Edge in Early Modern English Drama

updated: 
Monday, May 8, 2017 - 2:01pm
Edited by Mark Houlahan and Aidan Norrie
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, August 4, 2017

The editors invite proposals for chapters of c.7000 words for an edited collection, On the Edge in Early Modern English Drama.There can be little doubt that early modern English drama has received detailed attention in the existing scholarship. Scholars have long analysed the extant dramatic productions, and the men who authored them. Much of this attention, however, serves to perpetuate a static and heteronormative view of the past. More recently, scholars have engaged in excellent work to spread the scope of this attention, showing that people and concepts often seen as being on the edge of early modern English drama played integral and vital roles.

RSA 2018: Magical Wearables in the Medieval and Early Modern World (March 22nd-24th, 2018, New Orleans)

From Jones and Stallybrass's Renaissance Clothing and the Materials of Memory (2000) to art historian Cordelia Warr's Dressing for Heaven (2010), to Patricia Lennox and Bella Mirabella's edited collection, Shakespeare and Costume (2015), the power of clothing on medieval and early modern subjects is being more thoroughly explored. This interdisciplinary panel is interested in the ways clothing, costume, and other articles, including wigs, false beards, and jewelry, had power to shape, transform, or otherwise exert material effects on the bodies who wore them. How do such "wearables" and/or their material effects relate to issues of (mis)recognition or identity creation, successful or otherwise?
