(dis)Pleasures of Staged Music and Drama, for Leeds IMC 2013

updated: 
Friday, July 27, 2012 - 1:45pm
Katherine Steele Brokaw, University of California-Merced

The theme for the Leeds 2013 International Medieval Congress is Pleasure, and as such this session will look at medieval and early Tudor dramas that stage music and/or dance, perhaps discussing how theatrical representation of music and dance negotiates religious and social discourses about the pleasures of music and dance, and the benefits and dangers of these pleasures. Papers looking at music in dramas from the early middle ages through the sixteenth century are welcome. Email Katherine Steele Brokaw with an abstract by August 15, 2013.

If a lie had no more faces but one, as truth had, we should be in farre better termes than we are: For whatsoever a lier should say, we would take it in a contrarie sense. But the opposite of truth has many shapes, and an undefinite field.
