Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion Conference, 29 June - 1 July 2011

Shakespeare and Early Modern Emotion

An International and Interdisciplinary Conference

29 June – 1 July 2011

The Andrew Marvell Centre, The University of Hull

This conference will explore the performance and representation of emotion in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. In the last decade, scholars have been increasingly interested in the cultural history of emotions, arguing that they should be regarded as 'social phenomena' rather than inward experiences. At the same time, we have seen a resurgence of interest in the ethical and philosophical aspects of literary texts, and a return to thinking about ideas of 'human nature'.

International Symposium "Children and Childhood in the English Renaissance" / Univ. of Siegen (Germany) / 10-11 February 2012

Saturday, November 27, 2010 - 8:50am
Universitaet Siegen / Anglistik II

Despite the fact that the terms "child" and "childhood" have inspired scholars of various disciplines and ages, the representation of childhood in the time of the English Renaissance remains an under-investigated topic. The reasons for this oversight are manifold. Although Philip Ariès's thesis that childhood was discovered in the eighteenth century has meanwhile been revised (see, for instance, Orme and Hanawalt on the Middle Ages, or Pollock on the Early Modern Period), comprehensive studies of childhood in the Renaissance are still comparatively scarce.
