Dealing With The Dead: Mortality and Community in Medieval and Early Modern Europe
Call for abstracts for chapters to be included in an upcoming volume on Death in Medieval and Early Modern art, history, and culture.
This conference seeks to be the first of its kind that is dedicated to questions of anarchism in conjunction with questions about the body conceived of as real, social, perceived, constructed, or institutionalized. The conference committee will consider papers that use anarchism to inform studies related to the body or studies related to the body informing anarchism. We encourage innovative papers that engage with multiple aspects of anarchism intersecting with multiple disciplines and fields. While we encourage innovation, radical thought, diversity, and interdisciplinarity, we ask that individuals explain how their argument or presentation is applicable or significant to the fields with which they engage to ensure a coherent program.

We welcome proposals on all aspects concerning youth and Shakespeare and his contemporaries.

- How far can today's young actors, directors, academics in literature and history, find inspiration for their own works in the "Young Shakespeare" experience?
- What types of products and productions aimed at young people today draw their titles, characters or elements of plots from Shakespeare?
