Subject:        Question about Resources

I need help.  I am trying to look up information about love in the
renaissance--specifically between fathers and daughters, but parents and
children will suffice.  Everytime I've tried so far--I come up with books on
women in the renaissance or erotic love, sexuality, etc. If anyone knows how I
can go about finding this material or knows of any material out there on this
subject--let me know--Please!

Thank you in This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

[Editor's Note: There have been a number of requests recently regarding how
to locate information from logs of past digests.  I have been putting off
responding because I am trying to get some information from L-Soft, the
company that makes LISTSERV.  Last year, a fall 1996 update of the Unix
version of LISTSERV promised the porting in of the Database function and
several of the other functions that are available on the "mainframe" version
of LISTSERV.  As soon as I get a response, I will answer those questions and
announce any changes to the Conference.  --HMC]

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

Update to "Mr. William Shakespeare"

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, SHK 8.0040.  Saturday, 11 January 1997.

From:           Terry Gray <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Date:           Friday, 10 Jan 1997 10:34:04 -0800
Subject:        Update to "Mr. William Shakespeare"

I would like to announce a significant update to the web site:

"Mr. William Shakespeare and the Internet".

It now contains a new, html edition of _Tales From Shakespeare_, by Charles and
Mary Lamb, and I have also expanded the criticism resources to include many new
documents, including cross referencing to the scholarly and bibliographic works
from the SHAKSPER archive (maintained by EMLS) and references to _Barron's Book
Notes_ as well.

The Lamb edition is at: < http://www.palomar.edu/Library/lambale/ >.

The site's main page is at: < http://www.palomar.edu/Library/shake.htm >.

The quickest way to find out what has been added is to visit the What's New
page. If you have any suggestions for the pages, you may write me by using the
email links provided, or by sending me mail off-list at:

Q: The earth has music

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, SHK 8.0041.  Monday, 13 January 1997.

From:           Ian Doescher <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Date:           Saturday, 11 Jan 1997 16:50:19 -0500 (EST)
Subject:        Q: The earth has music

A friend of mine attributed the quote "The Earth has music for those who will
listen" to Shakespeare, but does not know which of his works it comes from.  Is
she quoting him correctly, and if so, where is this quote from?

Thanks in advance,
Ian Doescher

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0032  Re: Richard III, Lover

Avast!

Bravo to Christine Jacobson, not only for knowing anything about Mordecai
Richler but also for finding the parallel!

Have you by chance read Richler's _St. Urbain's Horseman_, in which Duddy
appears again, not at all as the main protagonist but having undergone a
dramatic change in "life's direction," so to speak?
