New Approaches to Early Modern Historical Drama at NEMLA (April 7-10, 2011)

Miles Taylor, Le Moyne College

2011 NEMLA Convention in New Brunswick, NJ, April 7-10, 2011. The history play has resisted attempts at definition. How are early modern history plays in conversation with historiography? Is re-telling English history substantively different from re-telling Roman history or continental history? Why was the genre so popular, and what triggered its decline? Who is represented in historical dramas, and who constitutes the "obscene" (offstage) persons of history? How do we reconcile a "Chronicle History of King Lear" with a "Tragedy of Richard II"? Is there something unique to historical drama that separates it from the popular historical poetry or fiction of the period?

Time's excesses in music, literature and art

Time's excesses in music, literature and art

This international conference is intended to explore how time may be represented aesthetically in excessive, eccentric and unthinkable ways. Art appears to have found a means of getting around time's dilemmas by depicting it as irrational or portraying the impossibility of getting a firm grasp of it. In art, time has long been shaped as something out of proportion, excessive, or even violent, which is evidenced by works such as Saturn Devouring his Son.
