Children and Performance in Early Modernity
Renaissance Society of America Conference, Miami 2007

The Duke Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is sponsoring a
session on children in the contexts of early modern performance. We are
seeking abstracts for papers that consider any aspect of this subject --
court culture, children's companies, public performances, and private

on the implications and conditions of child actors from a variety of
cultural settings and in a variety of modes (theater, music, dance, etc.).
