MLA 2020: "Early Modern Resilience: Shakespeare and Beyond," Special Session

How does early modern literature portray the resilience of women or other marginalized groups in times of crisis? What strength or power is found in resilience? Is resilience similar to #resist? How can we understand resilience within feminist criticism, critical race theory, postcolonialism, or other methodologies? How does resilience change our reading (or performance) of a text, and can we begin to theorize the way resilience functions in the early modern world? All texts from the early modern world and all methodologies welcome.
