2006 MLA Convention
Philadelphia, December 27-30, 2006

"Periodization" has often limited the ways in which we define, examine, and
theorize performance. This panel invites papers that consider how medieval
and/or renaissance performance challenges
traditional notions of periodization. Periodization is defined broadly in
this context. Papers might suggest how performance bridges such moments as
ancient to early medieval, the High to Late Middle Ages, Medieval to
Renaissance, or pre- to post-Reformation, but papers that examine fresh
definitions, ideas, and theories of periodization are especially encouraged.
