Scholars have long been interested in the effects of physical violence in non-Shakespearean Renaissance drama. This Midwest Modern Language Association panel hopes to expand such approaches to consider how the era's plays depict – and inflict – terror in less explicitly physical ways. How do social rifts, economic practices, and language gaps create terror? How do staged renditions of crime pamphlets and folktales exploit audience fears? How do social and psychological dimensions of violence complicate or complement bloodshed? How do plays involve (and implicate) audience members in their terrifying moments, and for what purpose?

I am a grandmother now and, like all grandmothers, I have a head full of stories about the past. But my stories are not like other people's, which makes them more fascinating for my descendants, if not always easy to talk about. All of them are strange, in one way or another, but so were the times. (Figes, 2008: 1)

New Brunswick, NJ – Hyatt New Brunswick

Host Institution: Rutgers University

The past fifteen years have given birth to radically new technologies, new media, and new experiments in film and literature, for which we must develop original ways of thinking about knowledge. In particular, how does embodiment figure in this reevaluation of epistemology? How do our bodies interact with the new forms of knowledge and learning to which we are confronted? How do they help us understand our own viscerality?
Please submit 250-word abstracts to Caroline Godart (godart@eden.rutgers.edu).
