Subject:     CFP: ESSE Seminar: Shakespeare and Renaissance Period

 

Prof. John Drakakis and Dr. Sidia Fiorato will host a seminar on the performances of the Body in the Renaissance Period during the next ESSE conference at Bogazici University, Instanbul, Turkey, from 4 to 8 September 2012.

 

Here is a brief description of the seminar

 

S3) Performances of The Body In The Renaissance Period

 

The seminar intends to analyze the concept of the "body" in the Renaissance period and its subsequent re-articulations and re-interpretations. Modernity considers the body as a place of regulation, shaped by social and political ideologies and specific networks of power; it is strictly connected with the representation of individual identity and the shaping of the juridical persona. Literature and the performing arts (through a language that is written on the body and with the body), can absorb and retain the effects of political power as well as resist the very effects they appear to incorporate in structures of parody, irony, and pastiche.

 

Please send your proposals for the seminar with a 200-word-abstract by January 31, 2012 to
