"Shakespeare and the Haunted Spaces of Modernity"

A session to be held at "Space, Haunting, Discourse," an interdisciplinary conference sponsored by the
Department of English at Karlstad University, Sweden, June 15-18, 2006.

Session Description:

Shakespeare's plays have been a near constant reference for definitions of modernity. They are also crucial to
conceptions of haunting. How can we articulate these two strands?

CALL FOR PAPERS: "Shakespearean Performance and the Still Image"

Shakespeare Bulletin seeks essays for a special issue dedicated to
the Shakespearean still image, broadly defined. In accordance with
SB's performance-focused interest in theatre history, contemporary
performance, and film, we seek a range of articles that take
divergent approaches to stillness and the still in relation to
performance: performance-related woodcuts or drawings; stillness and
stasis in theatrical performance or film ("frozen" moments;
tableaux); the photographic still in theatre or film.

Proposed Panel: Renaissance Girls
Renaissance Society of America Conference
San Francisco, March 23-26, 2006

We are looking for one paper that addresses the topic of Renaissance
girls for a proposed panel at the 2006 Renaissance Society of America
Conference. Proposals are welcome from all disciplines and need not be
limited to England.

The panel aims to bring together the emerging field of Girls Studies with
the burgeoning scholary interest in Renaissance childhood. What was the
place of female children in Renaissance culture and society? How were
they represented in literature, drama, and art? And how did girlhood
compare to boyhood?

Call for Paper Proposals for Proposed Panel "Gender, Sexuality and Time in
Renaissance England" at the Renaissance Society of America's 2006 meeting in
San Francisco
Recently, feminist and queer theorists have attempted to reconsider the
politics of time. Most of these critical interventions, however, have been based
in 19th and 20th-century understandings of time. This panel will consider
intersections of gender, sexuality and time in 16th and 17th-century England
in an effort to add an early modern perspective to some of these discussions.
Papers on particular texts, authors and genres, as well as broader
explorations of temporal and historical thinking and practices are all welcome.

For the Renaissance Society of America Conference in San Francisco (March 23-25, 2006).

This panel seeks to re-examine literary representations of revenge in early
modern culture. Papers are welcomed from across genres, countries, languages,
and disciplinary/theoretical approaches.

Much scholarly attention has been given to the mimetic function of revenge and
the authorizing narratives used to justify (or proscribe) vengeance.
Reevaluation of these issues is certainly welcomed. However, this panel seeks
to open the field of inquiry even further.

Topics for consideration may include, for example, the following:

DECOLONIZING THE PAST: RENAISSANCE HUMANISM BEYOND WESTERN EUROPE
This panel calls for a reevaluation of Renaissance humanism, long considered
a hallmark of Western social and intellectual development. Searching the
interstices of Renaissance humanism suggests its complicity with Western
European colonization, not only of physical spaces but also of cultural and
linguistic domains. An example of humanism's continuing colonizations is
the definition of what constitutes the center of Europe and what is
considered its margins. The consequences of this definition include our
perception of a Europe split on an East/West axis, and the fact that what we

Proposed Panel: The Social Work of Same-Sex Alliances
in the Early Modern Period

Alan Bray’s _The Friend_ has sparked a great deal of
discussion about the ways in which same-sex alliances
fit within, and signify to, larger social, political,
or cultural formations. For a proposed panel at RSA
2006, in San Francisco, we invite papers that consider
same-sex associations and representations under the
shelter of, or in tension with, other allegiances: to
marriage, to patron, to genre, to nation, or to
politics, to name only a few possibilities.

March 23-25, 2006.

Labor and Early Modern English Literature
The canon of early English literature is full of professional playwrights and
gentlemen who wrote in their spare time. The history of English literature,
however, also includes artisans-writers and performers. Indeed, some of the
earliest English drama was performed (and perhaps written in part by) members
of the various Guilds that made up the laboring class of English society. This
panel will focus on the voices of such writers in their own words or as those
voices are registered in the drama, poetry, and prose of the period.

sessions that document innovative ways in which computing technology is
being incorporated into the scholarly activity of our community. At the
2006 RSA meeting (San Francisco, March 23-25), 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,
and beyond:

Representing Reading in Early Modern England

Proposals are invited for a panel at RSA 2006 in San Francisco (23-25 March)
exploring the representation of reading and readers in Early Modern England.
Although there has been an increasing amount of work dedicated to material
reading practices, little attempt has been made to understand the complex and,
at times, even contradictory ways in which these practices were being
reproduced in the written and visual arts. How did reading signify in Early
Modern England?

By 5 May 2005, please email abstracts (150 words max) to panel organizer, Kevin
Curran (kevin.curran_at_mcgill.ca)

Participants must be RSA members or pay membership at time of submitting.
