[UPDATE] "Rethinking Seneca's Influence on Early Modern Drama" (09/30/2011; NEMLA, Rochester NY: 03/15-18)

Tuesday, August 9, 2011 - 10:00pm
Nicola Imbracsio/ University of New Hampshire

For years, scholars have demonstrated the debt that Kyd, Marlowe, Shakespeare, and other playwrights owe to Seneca's work. Such foundational criticism has often pointed to Seneca's plot devices, characterization, language, and form that inspired later Renaissance dramatists. However, recent scholarship demonstrates Seneca's effect on early modern subject construction and performance conditions. This panel aims to continue and extend the current reconsideration of Seneca's influence on early modern drama by gathering papers that "rethink" Seneca's works and influence in light of feminist, queer, post-colonial, and materialist theoretical perspectives.

Despite the often innovative and vital work of secondary educators in the United States, high schools and normal schools have not been widely explored as important sites in the disciplinary history of composition-rhetoric. Histories of High School and Normal School Writing Instruction will address this gap by providing a robust collection of archival studies of normal school pedagogies, high school classroom and extracurricular practices, and teacher research.
