Every year between Christmas and New Year's, English professors and
graduate students, book editors and publishers and representatives, and
occasionally spouses gather in a major American or Canadian city to
meet, interview each other, present papers, and party. In this panel,
"A Carnival of Sorts: Power, Fear, and Play at the Modern Language
Association Annual Convention," we will explore the ongoing carnival
that
the convention invariably becomes from personal and scholarly
perspectives.
In particular, the panel hopes to provide a semiotic, sociological, and
anthropological analysis of one of the academia's most peculiar
events.

CFP: Romantic Shakespeare. Shakespeare Yearbook, Winter 2007.

Henry James once noted that to the English an outing to Stratford was
not just a day out, not just a visit to a pretty old town with a
famous dead author, but a pilgrimage to "The Holy of Holies"; the
scene itself of the "nativity." James was being ironic, but to many
editors, and writers, and theatre personalities working in the era of
the English Romantic Movement, grappling with the works of
Shakespeare became a serious devotional duty.
