The Language of Truth on the Early Modern Stage

Soliciting papers for a paper session at SAMLA in Atlanta, GA, Nov 8-10, 2019.  This session will respond to the conference theme of “Languages: Power, Identity, Relationships” by addressing the language of truth on the early modern stage.  How do characters identify and categorize “truth”?  What is “truth,” how does one identify it, and what value is ascribed to it? The panel welcomes a variety of approaches to the topic. Please send title, abstract (350 words max), and abbreviated cv by April 19, 2019 to Dr. Katie Kalpin Smith at: katiek@usca.edu.
