Historicizing Performance in the Early Modern Period, January 20, 2012, The John Rylands Library, Deansgate, Manchester

updated: 
Wednesday, May 25, 2011 - 11:28am
Michael Durrant and Naya Tsentourou / The University of Manchester

This one-day academic conference aims to bring together scholars working on all aspects of performance in the early modern period (taken broadly to include the fifteenth to the early eighteenth centuries). We intend to interrogate what performance and its related terminologies and practices might have meant to early modern readers, playgoers, and congregations; how performance shaped and/or undermined distinctions between private/public bodies and selves. Although drama is an essential point of reference for this discussion, we encourage that "historicizing performance" be taken as broadly as possible. Topics might include (but are not limited to):
- Plays and play-going
- Music and singing
