Illinois Medieval Association
36th Annual Conference
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
23-24 Februrary, 2019
A call for papers: “Outliers and Outsiders”
It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.
Form and Reform
Cornell Medieval Studies Student Conference 2019
The Medieval Studies Program at Cornell University is pleased to announce its twenty-ninth annual graduate student colloquium, which will take place on the 16th of February 2019 at the A.D. White House on Cornell’s Ithaca, NY campus.
We seek submissions to a seminar on Gender Switching and Queerness in Web-Native Shakespare at the upcoming ESRA conference (http://www.ircl.cnrs.fr/francais/sos2019.htm) in Montpellier, France, in June 2019. We welcome papers exploring the interpretive possibilities generated by queer and gender-switched casting in web series and other digitally-native media adaptations of Shakespeare’s plays. By shifting the means of production and distribution beyond traditional mainstream media channels, new digital platforms like YouTube, Tumblr, and Netflix offer a creative process through which more people can adapt Shakespeare in their own image.
A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit, embalmed and treasured up on purpose to a life beyond life.
Mad, Bad, and Dangerous Texts:
Controversies in Reading, Writing, Editing, and Printing
Please circulate widely.
In addition to conveying controversial ideas, books themselves have both committed and inspired mad, bad, and dangerous behaviour. The production and consumption of printed matter can be subversive, destructive, or downright criminal. Studying books as material objects reveals controversies that are fascinating in their own right, regardless of the subject matter between their covers.
