What’s Missing in Shakespeare?

Shakespeare's plays are often complicated by what they lack. Key characters go missing from scenes or drop out of the action entirely; absent characters exert influence over those onstage; mislaid or immaterial objects are pivotal to the resolutions of plots; urgent questions are settled through silences; and plays are frequently haunted by untaken roads or abandoned plot threads. In addition, contemporary performances are shaped significantly by cuts to the script, with some scenes or characters rarely realized in performance, and some plays rarely performed at all.

deadline for submissions: 
Monday, July 2, 2018

This panel of the 32nd Medieval-Renaissance Conference (UVA-Wise, Sept. 13-15, 2018) invites papers on medieval and early modern villains and the dynamic ethical codes assigned them by authors, audiences, and critics. By villains we mean criminals, tricksters (such as professional beggers), political careerists, or poets and their characters, charismatic or not. Some viable threads: villains as likable (anti-)heroes; villains as reflections of med-ren political and social audiences; the vices, virtues, and skills of villains; the ethical implications their very existence conjures. Submit abstracts to Sherif Abdelkarim at sa2je@virginia.edu. Deadline July 2, 2018.

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual CultureCFP, Edition 8: “Yesterday’s Contemporaneity: Finding Temporality In The Past”  In recent decades art historians across the discipline have offered new insights into how communities in the global past understood their own positions in time. For example, Marvin Trachtenberg has made the case that twelfth- and thirteenth-century European architecture articulated a form of medieval modernism. Conversely Paul Binski has argued for how the same material could be understood as not only innovative, but also firmly historicist in nature.

Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies

Monday, March 26, 2018 - 9:03am
California State University, Stanislaus
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Editors Tony Perrello and C. Anne Engert welcome proposals for individual and co-authored chapters for a volume entitled Renaissance Literature and Modern Sociopolitical Applications: Leadership, Power, and Literary Legacies. We are in the process of assembling a collection of essays that explores the current American crises of leadership through the dramatic literature of the English Renaissance or vice versa. We believe that many of our colleagues are already talking about the intersection between these two topics, and we envision this edited volume as an opportunity to further such exploration in a scholarly venue. Palgrave MacMillan has shown interest in the project, which we aim to complete by March of 2019.

“Shakespeare and the Consumption of Culture”

Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism at the MMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 15, 2018

Shakespeare’s plays and the critical conversations around them are deeply concerned with questions of culture.  Many of the plays are set in cultures different than Shakespeare’s own early modern England, from Denmark to Italy to Ancient Rome, often using those cultures to examine his own.  Productions of his plays have been set in a dizzying array of cultures, in order make comments on yet other cultures.  The culture of Imperial Britain made use of Shakespeare in order to dominate (and often consume) the cultures which they colonized.

The Research Group on Manuscript Evidence, in keeping with the M-MLA conference’s theme of “Consuming Cultures,” is sponsoring panels on the consumption of manuscripts.  This consumption can be both literal—for example, the destruction wrought by bookworms, fires, and biblioclasts—or metaphorical—where “consuming” can mean textual transmission and reception more broadly.  We invite all approaches, including textual, art historical, codicological, and paleographical as well as all periods.
