Abstracts Wanted for Edited Collection about Early Modern Cultural Trauma
Currently soliciting abstracts (approximately 250-300 words with additional 100 words of author bio) for an edited collection discussing the role of cultural trauma in early modern English society. I am interested in essays focusing on Shakespeare/early modern theater as well as other realms of early modern life – political, religious, etc. Of particular interest are projects focusing on the role of race/racism in making traumatic meanings on the early modern stage. Collection has tentative interest from a major publisher. If the proposal is accepted, final drafts will be due in/around January 2024. Final drafts should be 5000 – 7000 words inclusive of notes/bibliography.
