Brawls, Bawds and Beer: The Early Modern Alehouse and Tavern

Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 7:40pm
Emily Sloan-Pace / RSA

The early modern tavern was often conceived of as a place of misrule, a place of violence, prostitution, theft and deceit. This was a space that inspired great social anxiety, as much a result of the inebriating product it served as for the unchecked gossip it facilitated among female patrons. Alewives in particular were figures of great cultural resonance, appearing regularly (and in a negative light) in art and literature. This space and the people who ran it were socially necessary but often viewed with disdain and suspicion, operating in a liminal space even as they provide a vital nutritive function.

[UPDATE] Captivity Writing Unbound, October 11-13, 2012 Deadline for proposals extended to May 31, 2012.

Saturday, May 19, 2012 - 9:48am
University of South Alabama / Department of English

Proposals for panels and papers are invited for a conference entitled "Captivity Writing Unbound," to be hosted by the University of South Alabama's Department of English and held at its Baldwin County campus, which is set in the heart of the quaint artist community of Fairhope, overlooking scenic Mobile Bay. As conference organizers, we envision a relatively concentrated event in which select scholars working in various disciplines and historical periods will present new ideas about the general area of writing and captivity. We are particularly interested in papers that explore and extend the traditional boundaries of the study of captivity writing, whether these are conceived generically, geographically, historically, or in disciplinary terms.

[UPDATE]: " 'FOUR-FOOTED ACTORS': LIVE ANIMALS ON THE STAGE " / University of Valencia, Spain / 12-14 December 2012

Writing in 1899, Frederick Dolman argued in an article titled "Four-Footed Actors: About Some Well-Known Animals that Appear in the London and Provincial Stage" that the "growth of variety theatres and the decay of comic songs" had developed in "several kinds of diversion, not the least of which is furnished by the art of the animal-trainer" (The English Illustrated Magazine, Sep. 1899, 192, p. 521). Dolman was describing the large-scale entertainments starring animals that had taken over traditional spectator recreations for the last century in a manner not unlike the success of music-halls and professional sport.
