The UK’s decision to leave the European Union constitutes the most momentous separation of British-European political culture since the Protestant Reformation. As scholarly and public interest in ideas of British political identity continues to sharpen, this conference explores themes of division and devolution in drama written at the dawn of the British Empire. Looking to Britain’s uncertain future by learning about its past can tell us much about how literature responds to drastic political change, not least in terms of the territories (real and imagined) with which it is invested. Recent events across the Atlantic also point to the complex dis/unities of political leadership, religion, and physical spaces.

MLA 2018: Recognition and Identity in Early Modern English Drama How do dress, voice, actions, etc cause a character to be "recognized" (or not recognized) as him/herself or as another in early modern English drama? Is the "recognition" of a character equal to a character's "identity"? How do reading and misreading shape our understanding of the connection between a character's individual "identity" and who he is perceived to be? How is identity and/or recognition read or understood on the early modern English stage? Please submit 250-word abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, March 10th, 2017. Thanks!
