Essay collection: Engagements with superstitions in early modern drama

We are still accepting proposals for a collection of critical articles on
the representation of supernatural imaginings, staged superstitions, and
enacted witchcraft and apparitions in the theaters of early modern Europe.
We are interested in both itinerant performers as well as stage productions
written for established commercial theaters.

The focus of the collection of essays lies with dramatic literature. At
this point we are particularly interested in essays that consider literary
interactions between fictional and allegedly non-fictional literatures:
pamphlets, treatises, and sermons.

Please send 750-word abstracts by Dec. 30 to the editor, Verena Theile, at
theile_at_gonzaga.edu. Abstracts may be attached in WORD or RTF format.
Please include a 150-word biographical sketch or cv.
