In Episode 9 of James Joyce's Ulysses, “Scylla and Charybdis,” Stephen Dedalus develops a theory about the origins of Shakespeare’s works that is both original and controversial. It is in the National Library of Ireland that Dedalus, in a wild and winding conversation, develops his ‘Hamlet theory’. The episode stages the strong and sometimes comic appeal of a biographical approach to Shakespeare’s works and, at the same time, casts Dedalus – Joyce’s alter ego – variously as Hamlet, Hamlet’s father, Shakespeare, and as a modern-day Ulysses.

I am seeking chapter submissions for an interdisciplinary edited collection concerning medieval and early modern medicine (from 1300-1700). The book will be interdisciplinary in nature. I am also especially interested in feminist and queer perspectives. It will focus on the influence of the ‘empirical turn’ (the scientific revolution of the 16th and 17th centuries) in Western medicine. It will include topics on any aspect of medicine, including but not limited to animal medicine, medical recipes, treatments, education, and facilities. The audience will be academic in nature, and I will seek publication with academic presses.

deadline for submissions:

English Literary Renaissance invites article submissions of 8000 to 12000 words on race in non-dramatic Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century literature in English. We especially encourage submissions that forgo analysis of canonical work by Shakespeare and Spenser, and instead showcase other literary texts and authors of the period, along with new archival materials. While we have plans for a special issue that focuses on Sixteenth-Century literature to be published in 2024, we hope to add more than a single issue’s worth of material to our publication pipeline. We welcome a range of theoretical and methodological approaches. The deadline for authors who wish to be considered for the 2024 special issue is 1 August 2022.

CFP: Performance and Public Shakespeare

 

For a special issue being proposed to Shakespeare Bulletin, we seek essays on the topic of performance and public Shakespeare, with a focus on markets and social responsibility.

Of course, performance is public Shakespeare, but as a result may be under-theorized in the ways current scholarship on social justice, eco-justice, and anti-racist pedagogy, to name a few, are reimaging and re-interrogating Shakespeare’s outward meanings and possibilities. We hope to expand our understandings of performance as public Shakespeare. Questions contributors may think about include the following:

Keynote: Dr Kathryn Murphy (University of Oxford)  

 

Early modern writings frequently resist neat or easy generic categorisation. Subject to interpretation, pastiche and modification, generic categories offer flexible guidelines rather than a strict set of rules. This one-day conference aims to look at generic experimentation, hybridity and innovation in early modern writing as a way to better understand the period’s multiple and evolving conceptions of genre.
