deadline for submissions:

After the New Oxford Shakespeare credited Christopher Marlowe as co-author of 1, 2, and 3 Henry VI in 2016, Shakespeare’s short-lived contemporary has drawn a wave of renewed interest. Since then, new editions of Doctor Faustus, The Massacre at Paris, and The Jew of Malta have appeared, three collections of essays have been published, and a well-attended international Marlowe conference was held in Wittenberg, Germany. Marlowe’s plays continue to be a staple of contemporary non-Shakespearean performance with recent celebrated productions at the RSC’s Swan Theatre and the National Theatre.

The seminar will pose the governing question of whether the advent of printing was a necessary precondition for the Protestant Reformation. Participants will consider ways in which elements such as book layout, typography, illustration, and paratext (e.g., prefaces, glosses, and commentaries) shaped the responses of readers.

What’s more, her fiction, nonfiction, and poetry were sites of engagement where many of these connections were both widened and deepened.

Thinking about literature to write history : common paths, tensions, and encounters between historical and literary writings

updated: 
Monday, November 1, 2021 - 8:52am
Revue Post-Scriptum
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

This Post-Scriptum’s conference wishes to address different ways in which the relationships between history and literature are thought out as sources of tensions, interrogations, and mutual influences. Two questions underlie this perspective: how can literary texts deal with historical events, and, conversely, in what way(s) works of historiography borrow elements from literature, both formal and narrative? Hence, problems that are related to these questions can be addressed. These problems concern the theoretical, formal, narratological, epistemological, etc. consequences of the encounters between history and literature.
