MLA Panel 2008
Sponsored by Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society

_Renaissance Medievalisms in Performance_

As Chris Brooks argues, the Renaissance inherited the Middle Ages both as
a material presence and as a complex of ideas and feelingsâ€"real and
imaginary. This panel seeks papers that examine how Renaissance
communities used performance to construct, evaluate, mythologize, or re-
imagine the Middle Ages. Although we can find evidence of
such “medievalism” in play texts, we might also identify it in staging
choices, patronage, and other aspects of the theatrical enterprise.
Papers that address non-English contexts are welcome.

CFP: [Theory] Collection of essays on ethical literary criticism

updated: 
Tuesday, January 8, 2008 - 4:58pm
Alan Goff

An academic publisher is interested in a collection of essays about
ethical criticism. As the editor, I envision the book having several
thematic centers: the responsibilities of readers, the obligations of
writers, the legacy of Wayne Booth, connections to disciplines other than
literary criticism (history, law, philosophy, religion), narrative theory
and ethical theory, and postmodernism and the ethics of reading. Please
contact me about providing a proposal for a chapter.
