Capturing Witches: Histories, Stories, Images. 400 years after the Lancashire Witches

updated: 
Wednesday, September 7, 2011 - 10:29am
Lancaster University, UK

In 2012, a year-long programme of events in Lancaster and the surrounding area will mark the 400th anniversary of the trial and execution of the first group of Lancashire Witches. A second trial occurred in 1634 and although pardoned, the accused were re-imprisoned in Lancaster Castle. The case of the Lancashire Witches and their supposed crimes interwove fact and fiction, local hostilities and more exotic ideas of witches' sabbats that were usually associated with continental witchcraft. They became a cause célèbre, like the witches of Trier and Fulda (Germany), Torsåker (Sweden) and Salem (North America).

9th Global Conference
War and Peace

Saturday 19th May – Monday 21st May 2012
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Papers:
The opening decade of the 21st century has seen war assume a number of new forms – new at least in relation to the 20th century. So, for instance, the West's war in Afghanistan is already longer than WW2, and shows no sign of coming to an end; the nature of those engaged in war has widened to include a variety of non-state agents; and war itself has come to include as arguably justifiable tactics and strategies previously either excluded or at least not recognised as legitimate. In short, the distinction between war and peace is becoming increasingly unclear.

"Although he was already repellent enough, there arose
from the fungous skin-growth with which he was almost
covered a very sickening stench which was hard to
tolerate... with the use of the [daily] bath the unpleasant
odour... ceased to be noticeable"
- Sir Frederick Treves

"Parody, Farce, and Authority in Early Drama" ICMS, Kalamazoo 2012

updated: 
Tuesday, September 6, 2011 - 1:26pm
Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society

Without authority, there is no parody or farce— in the words of C. L. Barber, "the license depends utterly on what it mocks" (Shakespeare's Festive Comedy 214). This symbiotic dynamic between the systems of authority and their detractors at once reinforces authorized models because they license their own mocking while simultaneously undercutting them through critique. Early drama is one vehicle for observing this dynamic of parody, farce, and authority, in such wide-ranging issues as religious orthodoxy and heterodoxy, political models of governance and rebellion, and social frameworks of class and gender. Submissions can examine any facet of parody, farce, and authority within early drama. All submissions are due by September 15, 2011.
