Children and Performance in Early Modernity
Renaissance Society of America Conference, Miami 2007

The Duke Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies is sponsoring a
session on children in the contexts of early modern performance. We are
seeking abstracts for papers that consider any aspect of this subject --
court culture, children's companies, public performances, and private
environments. Ideally we would like to assemble a session that touches
on the implications and conditions of child actors from a variety of
cultural settings and in a variety of modes (theater, music, dance, etc.).

Please send a proposed title, an abstract (of not more than 150 words),
and contact information to Laurie Shannon, ( by April
