Special Session: Why Shakespeare in Performance?

The growing numbers of books that focus on Shakespeare in performance,
including editions of the plays that incorporate descriptions of
performances into the text, suggests that the study and teaching of
performed Shakespeare is an increasingly prevalent method of examining
the plays. But what do we expect the study of the plays in performance
to be able to do for us? Why this abundance of performance criticism and
what is it good for? This is not a session that is about abandoning
performance studies or providing case-studies of individual productions.
Rather, it is a chance for us as scholars and teachers to theorize what
we can learn from and do with Shakespeare in performance, and what we
cannot. Send abstracts by March 15th to Sarah Werner:
