'Genre in the Renaissance'
*Confirmed keynote speakers: Professor John Drakakis (University of Stirling) and Professor Marion Wynne-Davies (University of Surrey)*
Proposals for papers are invited on any aspect of the ways in which literary/poetic/dramatic genres function in the Renaissance. This seminar endeavours to expose some of the ways in which genres are employed, manipulated, or resisted in Renaissance literature, poetry and drama.
Topics may include, but are certainly not restricted to:
- The emergence and evolution of genres in relation to Renaissance culture;
- The tensions or compliance of literary/dramatic works with genre theory;
