CFP: Renaissance Studies and New Technologies
Renaissance Society of America Annual Conference
Miami, 22-24 March 2007

For the past six years, the RSA program has featured a number of
sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is
being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. At the
2007 RSA meeting (Miami, 22-24 March 2007), several sessions will
continue to follow this interest across several key projects, through a
number of thematic touchstones, and in several emerging areas.

For these sessions, we seek proposals in the following general areas,

CFP: Shakespeare (and friends) in Popular Culture (6/15/06; MAPACA, 10/27/06-10/29/06)

Annalisa Castaldo

The Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture will hold its annual conference in Baltimore, MD, October 27-29, 2006.

Shakespeare's position in popular as well as high culture remains strong, with new works in fiction, film and other areas. But Shakespeare is not the only Renaissance figure to have a presence in modern popular culture. Other writers, historical figures, events and debates are still part of the popular landscape. This area welcomes topics on any aspect of the overlap or intersection between the Early Modern period (roughly 1500-1700) and the Postmodern one. Topics for this area can include, but are not limited to:

–Shakespeare on film, in TV, comics or fiction
