Sir John Falstaff enters the Shakespearean stage asking what time of day it is and leaves it at the turning of the tide.  This collection of essays is interested in ideas about temporal shifts in early modern drama. Topics could include (but are not limited to) changing seasons; the representation of individual seasons in plays; holidays and ritual markers of time; the ebb and flow of tides; measurement of time and perceptions of temporal change; day, night, dawn and dusk; understandings of different time zones; the ageing process; saints’ days, quarter days, anniversaries, and other calendrical markers; accession days; and whether there was any awareness at the time of what we would now call the Little Ice Age.

Carceral Shakespeare
Edited Collection, Call for Papers

Shakespeare has been in American prisons over the last forty years, in arts programs and college-in-prison classrooms. Even as the landscape of incarceration has shifted—from the War on Drugs to the Fair Sentencing Act, from prison reform to prison abolition—Shakespeare programs have endured. While attention to these programs often reduce them to methods of “reform” and “rehabilitation,” these narratives of redemption do not capture the complexity of what it means to engage with Shakespeare inside the carceral system.

MLA 2023:  Race, Gender, and Consent in the Global Early Modern

Guaranteed roundtable for MLA 2023 (San Francisco) on race, gender, and consent in the prose, poetry, and drama of the 16th and 17th centuries. We invite roundtable presentations from a wide variety of perspectives – cultural, formal, social, legal, historical – and literary traditions. How can the shifting dynamics of consent and coercion help us understand premodern race-making and gender construction? Comparative and transnational perspectives are especially welcome.  

This roundtable is organized by the MLA forum on Renaissance/Early Modern Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies.

Coauthoring the Early Modern Period

Sixteenth Century Society & Conference
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, April 1, 2022

Why study the early modern period? Most academics of earlier periods have encountered this question in one form or another. This question seems especially pressing when it comes to teaching. For many of us, it is our goal to have monographs published by university presses and spend summers conducting research in archives. But the reality is that a large part of our day-to-day impact as scholars is on the undergraduate students we encounter as instructors, usually teens and young adults. This panel is interested in engaging in a conversation about how teaching undergraduate students impacts our scholarship in early modern studies.

Research on the premodern intersection of race, gender, and sexuality has steadily increased as a result of the efforts of a diverse group of scholars working across traditional periodization and geographic limits. Nevertheless, a great deal of work remains to be done to understand the many varieties of ways such aspects of identities intersected and were mobilized or challenged in the marking of difference.

*Extended Deadline* Shakespeare's Odysseys

Shakespeare-Seminar 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

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.
