Women and Power: Call for Papers


As part of our forthcoming Women and Power festival at Shakespeare’s Globe, we are bringing together scholars and practitioners for a one-day, online symposium to be held on Friday 10 December.

We are currently accepting proposals for 15-minute papers on topics such as identity, structures of power, sexual violence and exploitation, gender equality, political futures, indigeneity, and feminist storytelling as they relate to early modern drama. How must the performance, adaptation, and reception of Shakespeare be redefined in response to #MeToo and other ongoing concerns about the status of women around the world? How might Shakespearean performance be harnessed to tell stories not yet told, giving voice to minority experiences and bodies?

Please submit an abstract (max. 250 words) and a short bio to Dr Hanh Bui, Teaching and Research Fellow (hanh.b@shakespearesglobe.com) by Friday 1 October. Notifications of acceptance will be emailed by late October.
