Shakespeare and the Environment (NEMLA, Montreal, April 7-10, 2010; abstracts due September 30, 2009)

In what ways does Shakespeare imagine the natural world in his plays and poems, and how do those depictions set the stage on which his characters act? In a tragedy like King Lear, Shakespeare envisions a nature that can strip away the layers and accretions of culture that have blinded the protagonist. Is that the same nature as the "green world" of his comedies? Or is the Forest of Ardenne not just a different space but a different kind of nature than the heath? How might we read the island environment of The Tempest, and Prospero's control over the elements? Do Shakespeare's histories posit a sense of the land itself, and if so, do they conceive of a workable way to live in harmony with nature?
