Every play imagines its own world—but the worlds they imagine must in some way connect with their audience, both past and present. This panel invites perspectives on early modern English drama that considers the balance between these two poles: the imagined world of the setting and its connection to the surrounding culture in early modern England. This balance is particularly important in early modern English drama for both historical reasons—an increased awareness of other worlds and their different reality within the expanding cultural purview of the early modern English—and literary ones—since so much criticism of these plays has focused on their relation to early modern England itself to the exclusion of their frequently quite disparate settings.

2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Richard Burbage, a member of the family who gave us the first purpose-built theatre in Shakespeare's London. By exploring his life, and those around him, historians have been able to unearth much valuable information about the early modern theatre industry. Scholarship about other theatre people – prompted by their work, the archive, or both – has similarly added to our knowledge of the theatre in Shakespeare's time. We have learnt about the period's theatre from Philip Henslowe's diary, Anthony Munday's pageants, Richard Brome's contract, and George Wilkins' lawsuits.

"Fear and Anxiety in Contemporary Drama and Performance": 27th Annual CDE Conference, University of Hildesheim (Germany), 31 May to 3 June 2018

In an increasingly news-saturated world – or even, a news-controlled one – contemporary Western social and cultural discourse is preoccupied with narratives of fear and anxiety. Especially after the events of 11 September 2001, there has been a significant increase in plays and productions representing events, contexts, people, and situations that relate to these themes. Meanwhile, we are encouraged to be afeared of: the anonymous or digital other, the unknown or unexplainable (such as disappearing planes), the collapse of capitalism (and the bankers who caused it), fake news and ‘post-truths’, and the rise of the political right (or left).

Whereas religious study often dwells with the theological question of how the sacred has been revealed to humanity, sociologists of religion Emile Durkheim and Max Weber preferred to ask how the sacred is made and remade within a society. For them, human activity assumes a power sometimes attributed to supernatural forces: the power to produce the sacred.
