Subject:        CUNY Renaissance Studies Conference

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to announce a conference that may be of interest to
Shakespeareans. The 1997 CUNY Renaissance Studies Program at the CUNY Graduate
School is sponsoring a conference, "Early Modern Trans-Atlantic Encounters:
England, Spain, and the Americas." The program is on our website,
http://web.cuny.edu/dept/renai/conf/. By February we will have texts of papers
and abstracts. (The format you will now see is being redesigned.) There will be
an opportunity to post comments.

The conference itself will be held in NY on March 6-7 at the CUNY Graduate
School, The Spanish Institute, and the New-York Historical Society. It is being
coordinated with events at the Renaissance Society of America Conference
(Vancouver), the John Carter Brown Library (Providence),  the Folger Institute
(Wash DC), and the Hispanic Society of America (NY). Major speakers are Anthony
Pagden (Hopkins), Sabine MacCormack (Michigan), and Sacvan Bercovitch
(Harvard). Admission is free and the conference is open to the public. All are
welcome.

I would welcome suggestions about other listservs whose participants might be
interested in this conference.

Subject:        Call for Abstracts 1

The editors of Studies in the Literary Imagination have indicated interest in a
special issue on *Consciousness and World Drama* They have asked me to provide
a detailed proposal for such an issue. I am, therefore, now inviting abstracts
for papers, which I would then include in my proposal. Publication might be as
late as fall 2000, because the journal is scheduled through fall 1999.

Papers collected in the issue would relate consciousness in its various aspect
(ordinary and altered or higher states) to drama (as opposed to  performance).
Papers could focus on consciousness as portrayed in drama, as experienced by
dramatic characters, dramatic techniques employed by dramatists in causing
specific consciousness-related effects in readers/spectators. Different models
of consciousness (Freud, Jung, neurophysiological, computer-based, Indian,
etc.) could provide different answers to questions such as: what happens in the
mind of the dramatist when he/she writes a play? what happens in the mind of
the reader when reading a play (spectator watching a play)?

Deadline for abstracts: 1 March 1997

I will prepare the proposal to the journal by March 15, and contact each
potential contributor as soon as I have heard from the editors of the journal.

Subject:        Call for Abstract 2

The International Society for the Study of European Ideas, ISSEI, will hold its
8th International Conference at the University of Haifa, Israel, August 16 to
21, 1998.

At this conference, I will chair a workshop entitled

*Theatre and Consciousness: The Psychology of Performance*

Some of the questions that might be discussed at the workshop include: What
happens in the minds of actors while performing? Do they get involved
emotionally? Do they identify with the characters they play? Do/can they
experience altered states of consciousness, such as translumination? How do
they wind down after a performance? What happens in the minds of spectators
while watching a play? Do they identify with the character, or with the actor,
or not at all? What is involved in catharsis, and who experiences it, first
actor and then spectator, or only the spectator by whatever the actors do on
stage? How do Western and non- Western approaches to one or more of these
issues differ? What can be gained from an intercultural approach?

1 January 1998  Deadline for 1-page abstracts.
1 February 1998 my response to all those who submitted an abstract
1 June 1998 Deadline for completed papers, maximum 3000 words

50% of all conference papers will be published in the journal of the ISSEI,
*The European Legacy*.   For further details about ISSEI, see Internet page
