'Theatre People of Shakespeare's Time': A Special Issue of the Journal Shakespeare

2019 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of Richard Burbage, a member of the family who gave us the first purpose-built theatre in Shakespeare's London. By exploring his life, and those around him, historians have been able to unearth much valuable information about the early modern theatre industry. Scholarship about other theatre people – prompted by their work, the archive, or both – has similarly added to our knowledge of the theatre in Shakespeare's time. We have learnt about the period's theatre from Philip Henslowe's diary, Anthony Munday's pageants, Richard Brome's contract, and George Wilkins' lawsuits.

Volume 5 

Ceræ: An Australasian Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies invites essay submissions for Volume Five on the theme of ‘Representations and Recollections of Empire’.

In its broadest sense, empire as a term is used to describe a state or cluster of lands and states ruled by a monarch or emperor. With its implications of wide and far reaching dominion, empire as a concept also lends itself to a broad range of subject areas that may consider a number of cultural groups and historical periods, concepts of power and dominance, influence and control. Topics may include but are not limited to:

ICMS 2018 - Disability, Devotion, and Subjectivity in Medieval and Renaissance England

This panel invites trans-historical and trans-disciplinary examinations of pre-modern disability studies, focusing particularly on the construction of the devotional subject across the lines of periodicity. Medievalists and early modernists working in the burgeoning field of disability studies have shown that “disability” was an operative category in premodern texts, with subjects constituted by different or “non-standard” bodies, minds, and spirits. This roundtable proposes to extend this conversation by turning to religious experience and devotion, an important discursive field for the construction of identity by marginalized and/or minority groups.

-NeMLA 2018 in Pittsburgh, Emotional Nation, National Emotions in Medieval and Renaissance French Literature Recent scholarship has acknowledged the importance of emotions in the premodern and medieval periods, notably how they were an important part of community building, as well as of political, intellectual, and religious worlds. This panel will explore how emotions were used in literature about the nascent idea of the French nation. If the French kingdom was “naturally” built around the image of the sovereign, some events weakened and threatened its power, even causing profound institutional crises.
