Evidently Set Forth: God and the Human Stage
Corpus Christi College, Oxford, UK, Saturday 4 November 2017
Offers of papers are invited on aspects of the history and theory of drama, tragedy, drama in Biblical narrative, mystery plays, Biblical dramas, Puritanism and the theatres, and modern drama, including poetic drama, closet drama and studio drama. Performance is within this remit, as also is theo-drama. Papers may adopt a historical or thematic approach, or may discuss individual plays or books, or draw comparisons e.g. as between King Lear and the Book of Job. The CLSG interest is in Exploring Christian and Biblical themes in Literature.
I am inviting one- to two-page proposals for essays in the medieval volume (500-1450) in the forthcoming Bloomsbury series, A Cultural History of Youth. Scheduled for publication in 2021, the six volume series covers youth from antiquity to the contemporary period, and each volume will have a parallel set of chapters:
1. Concepts of Youth
2. Spaces and Places
3. Education and Work
4. Leisure and Play
6. Gender, Sexuality and the Body
7. Belief and Ideology
8. Authority and Agency
9. War and Conflict
10. Towards a Global History
Only chapters 6 and 7 are spoken for presently.

With the opening of the Digital CoLab, Olin Library has established a physical space for collaborative work in the digital humanities. But why do the digital humanities need a space, let alone conferences, at all? We can see this movement happening outside of academia as well where digital, global networks have collected into hallmark centers; with trendy coworking spaces opening in major metropolitan areas and Apple, Facebook, Amazon, and Google’s opening new campuses, the image of group computational work anchored to an iconic, single space has become both commonplace and powerful. What does the lab model, whether it be repurposing a single room or building a flagship campus, tell us about the state of the digital humanities?
