Beckett Studies has changed radically since Richard Gilman claimed that Beckett's imagination worked "almost entirely outside history". In recent years, much work has been done to recover the relevant social and cultural contexts for Beckett's work, and this process has been greatly expedited by continuing efforts to disseminate the contents of the many drafts and manuscripts housed in the archives.

CFP: Visual Archives and Embodied Practice
This panel looks to the archive as a motivating device for intervention, rather
than as an inert repository of empirical data. In other words, we're interested
in discussing how archival research becomes embodied in practices, and would
like to reconsider the agents and institutions mediating these embodiments.
Shakespeare Bulletin, a journal for the study of renaissance drama in
performance, published by the Johns Hopkins University Press, is pleased
to announce workshop titles for the RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION
conference, to be held November 8-12, 2006 on the University of Toronto
RENAISSANCE DRAMA IN ACTION will give scholars interested in performance
an opportunity to grapple with the practical realities of moving from
the page to the stage. Conference participants will sign up for a
rehearsal-and-performance workshop. Each workshop will focus on a
single scene from a play, one which exemplifies particular problems,
challenges, and/or rewards involved in staging renaissance drama.
