Shakespeare's position in popular as well as high culture remains strong, with new works in fiction, film and other areas. But Shakespeare is not the only Renaissance figure to have a presence in modern popular culture. Other writers, historical figures, events and debates are still part of the popular landscape. This area welcomes topics on any aspect of the overlap or intersection between the Early Modern period (roughly 1500-1700) and the Postmodern one. Topics for this area can include, but are not limited to:
–Shakespeare on film, in TV, comics or fiction
