Subject:        CFP: Shakespeare and the Ethics of Drama

2001 Carolinas Symposium on British Studies, University of South
Carolina

This panel will explore the moral philosophy underpinning the dramatic
experiments of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Interdisciplinary and
theoretical papers are especially welcome. Suggested topics include but
are not limited to the following: consideration of the ways in which
ethics influence dramatic genres (i.e., how the ethics of comedy differ
from the ethics of tragedy, or how the difficulties of mixed-genre drama
might result from conflicting ethical principles); explorations of
influential Elizabethan-Jacobean religious beliefs or philosophies
(e.g., neostoicism or skepticism); comparisons of the ethical principles
of native English dramatic forms with those of classical forms; the
ethics manifested by representations of gender and race in the drama of
the period.

The twenty-seventh annual CSBS meeting will be held at the Univ. of
S.C.  in Aiken, on Feb 3-4, 2001. The best paper will receive a prize of
$250 and submission to <Albion>.

Reading time will be strictly limited to fifteen minutes.

Send 1-2 pp. abstracts by Monday, March 27 to
