UPDATE: Between the Sacred and the Profane (12/15/05; journal issue)

Monday, November 21, 2005 - 9:34pm
Murray, Sarah Jane

Update: "Between the Sacred and the Profane: Medieval Renaissance and Performance" (Peer-reviewed)

Baylor Journal of Theatre and Performance seeks essays for a special issue, to be guest-edited by Dr. K. Sarah-Jane Murray and Dr. Sinda K. Vanderpool. We welcome essays that explore performance in, and performative aspects of, medieval and Renaissance drama, poetry, and literature. We particularly encourage submissions exploring the relationship 'between the sacred and the profane.' Given that many medieval/Renaissance non-drama works were composed to be performed aloud, the editors will consider submissions focusing on a variety of genres. Popular performances, including non-manuscript based traditions, are also appropriate subjects.

Old English session I and II

The meeting of The South Atlantic Modern Language Association

an appreciation of Old English itself. This session invites papers that
explore how interpretations of the language shape our interpretation of
the literature, and vice-versa. Papers discussing issues related to the
teaching of Old English are also encouraged.

us paper proposals on the theme:
