Shakespearean Echoes

Paul Gleed, Dickinson College

I am seeking chapter abstracts for a proposed volume on Shakespeare in popular culture. The tentative title for this project is Shakespearean Echoes: Shakespeare in Contemporary Culture.
Why another volume on Shakespeare and popular culture? Understandably, the vast majority of work on Shakespeare's contemporary life has focused on direct adaptations of the playwright's work. What I propose with this volume, however, is to exclusively study "echoes" of Shakespeare rather than adaptations, the less tangible and precise ways in which Shakespeare has appeared within contemporary culture. Authors might address echoes of Shakespeare in contemporary music, film, literature, television, advertising, new media or any other worthwhile venue.

"Savagism" and Civilization

"In plain truth, these men are very savage in comparison of us; of necessity, they must either be absolutely so or else we are savages; for there is a vast difference between their manners and ours." - Michel Montaigne, "Of Cannibals"

Violent Masculinities in Early Modern Literature and Culture--Edited Collection (Abstracts due 6/20/2011)

Tuesday, May 10, 2011 - 2:46pm
Catherine Thomas and Jennifer Feather

How does understanding violence and masculinity as interrelated illuminate intersections between religious, national, sexual, ranked, or racial identities? Excellent scholarship in gender studies over the past several decades has emphasized the extent to which masculinity has been an under-examined norm and stressed the many forms masculinity takes in the early modern period. This collection builds on those efforts by interrogating how masculinity and violence are specifically linked and by considering the ways multiple identity categories simultaneously influence constructions of masculinity.
