empting a struggle which would in a few years erupt across Europe and the
rest of the world. In the decades since the Spanish conflict has been
endlessly discussed and written about, and represented in countless
literary, cinematic and visual works of art.

CFP: [Renaissance] Stuart Drama and Its Discontents (10/1; NEMLA 4/08 conference)

Monday, September 3, 2007 - 12:34pm
Miles Taylor

Accepted for April 10-14 2008 Northeast MLA Convention in Buffalo, NY.

This panel examines instances and intersections of theatrical discourse in
the pamphlets and plays of Jacobean and Caroline England, towards exploring
the complex and ambivalent ways that theatre and theatricality are figured
in Stuart drama. From the omnipresent metaphor of theatre to the staging
of theatre in plays within plays, Stuart dramatists respond to and at times
reflect profound cultural uncertainty about the purpose and effects of
playing. Papers on this panel will illustrate the complicated notions about
theatre within the Stuart theatre itself.
