                   IN SHAKESPEARE'S SHADOW
                   'MINOR' DRAMA, 1590-1610


                  A CONFERENCE TO BE HELD AT
                THE UNIVERSITY OF HERTFORDSHIRE
                        22 MARCH 1997

                *****   CALL FOR PAPERS   *****

'In Shakespeare's Shadow' will bring together research on the drama of
1590-1610 that is currently under-represented in literary study.  The aim
of the conference is to re-evaluate the drama of this period in its own
right, and to question the canonical authority that Shakespeare commands
to the detriment of all but a handful of his peers.

Proposal for papers (20 mins. in length) are invited on a range of
topics, including individual authors, canonical politics, intertextuality
and the production of meaning, authorial authority, drama as cultural
commodity, spectatorship and class, historicism vs. formalism, the
use-value of drama, theatre as national genre, drama as social labour,
difference dramatised, alternative heroes, disregarding/discarding
Shakespeare.

Theoretical and interdisciplinary work is especially welcome.

Proposals of no more than 300 words in length (deadline 31 January 1997)
and/or requests for further information should be sent to us at the
following address:
