Dramatic Enactments of Suffering Bodies in Restoration England

This seminar seeks papers that explore dramatic representations of suffering
bodies during the period of the Restoration, with a particular focus on the
ways in which suffering bodies are situated as martyrs, scapegoats, or victims
of political plots. Papers that address theatrical productions including
scenes of mutilation or decollation are welcome, in addition to papers about
scaffold dramas, public executions, and other forms of public spectacle as
performance. Papers that investigate how suffering bodies proved pleasurable
sights on either the Restoration stage or in "public" proceedings are
especially desired.

One- to two-page proposals and a brief CV should be sent by e-mail to Misty
