Currently soliciting abstracts (approximately 250-300 words with additional 100 words of author bio) for an edited collection discussing the role of cultural trauma in early modern English society. I am interested in essays focusing on Shakespeare/early modern theater as well as other realms of early modern life – political, religious, etc. Of particular interest are projects focusing on the role of race/racism in making traumatic meanings on the early modern stage. Abstracts should specifically reference topic's connection to cultural trauma. Final drafts should be 5000 – 7000 words inclusive of notes/bibliography. Please send questions/abstracts to Devori Kimbro at devori-kimbro@utc.edu.
