Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion

An International and Interdisciplinary Conference

29 June – 1 July 2011

The Andrew Marvell Centre, The University of Hull

This conference will explore the performance and representation of emotion in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the last decade, scholars have been increasingly interested in the cultural history of emotions, arguing that they should be regarded as 'social phenomena' rather than inward experiences. At the same time, we have seen a resurgence of interest in the ethical and philosophical aspects of literary texts, and a return to thinking about ideas of 'human nature'.

Call for contributions: censorship and literature in English-speaking countries, 16th-21st centuries

Call for Contributions: collected essays on censorship and literature in English speaking countries, 16th-21st centuries

With the development of the modern state, there has been an ongoing tension between the will to control and at the same time allow free speech to develop. In English-speaking countries, the theme of "Censorship and Discourse" has been a recurrent concern from the 16th century to the present day, as the numerous censored publications and writings against censorship testify.
