CFP: [Renaissance] MRDS session MLA 2008
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 â€œmedievalismâ€ 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.
