The Newberry Library, an independent research library in Chicago,
Illinois, invites applications for its 2001-02 Fellowships in the
Humanities. Long-term residential fellowships are available to
postdoctoral scholars (and Ph.D. candidates in the case of the Spencer
Fellowship) for periods of six to eleven months. Applicants for
postdoctoral awards must hold the Ph.D. at the time of application. The
stipend for these fellowships is up to $30,000.  Short-term residential
fellowships are intended for postdoctoral scholars or Ph.D. candidates
from outside of the Chicago area who have a specific need for Newberry
collections. Scholars whose principal residence or place of employment
is within the Chicago area are not eligible. The tenure of short-term
fellowships varies from one week to two months.  The amount of the award
is generally $1200 per month.  Applications for both short-term and
long-term fellowships are due January 20, 2001. For more information or

Poor Yorick Plight Update

Subject:        Poor Yorick Plight Update

Poor Yorick wants to thank its friends and neighbors for their loyalty
and their continued support.

While we wish we could confirm the rumors even we have heard to the
effect that we will be staying on indefinitely at this location, the
fact is, we just don't know. Please stay tuned: we still have 15 months
on our lease, and "tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow / creeps in this
petty pace from day to day, / to the last syllable of recorded time": we
would rather bear those ills we have, than fly to others that we know
not of.

ANNOUNCING THE PUBLICATION OF REED'S NEWEST VOLUME

Sussex
Edited by Cameron Louis

514 pp / October 2000

Co-publishers

University of Toronto Press: ISBN 0-8020-4849-8  $150.00   (North
America)

Brepols Publishers: ISBN  2-503-50905-3 138 Euros (Europe)

Sussex is a complete edition of primary sources concerning dramatic and
musical performance in the county of Sussex from the Middle Ages until
the time of Oliver Cromwell.  As with all Records of Early English Drama
(REED) volumes, Sussex contains introductory material situating the
primary sources in context, as well as the primary sources themselves.
Documenting the performance of drama and music in the county of Sussex
up to 1642, this volume includes an extensive introduction, explanatory
notes, glossaries, translations, and indexes.

Although many of the civic records of Sussex have not survived, an
impressive set of documents from the important Port of Rye dating back
to the late Middle Ages still exists. The records from Rye reveal a
period of intensive dramatic activity by local and visiting players,
resulting in abrupt termination when hostile religious factions gained
control of the town government. We also have some records that reveal
musical and dramatic performance in heavily populated locations like
Chichester and Lewes.

Other records such as parish accounts and ecclesiastical court
proceedings show performance and folk rituals in both small and large
settlements, including a detailed account of a Robin Hood play, an
another of a cowlstaff riding.  The book also includes records of
performance at the religious houses of Battle and Robertsbridge, and the
printed accounts of the entertainment of Queen Elizabeth at Cowdray
House.  This ambitious text complements the previous REED volumes and
helps complete the picture of performance in the areas outside of London
and in the Southern counties.  Geographical and historical sketches of
the county are included, with particular emphasis on landscape, economic
development, major settlements, administrative structure, religious
conflicts, networks of nobility and gentry, religious houses, and
transportation infrastructure.  Professor Louis also visits the subject
of travelling players and performance spaces, as well as folk customs.
The records themselves are transcribed and edited, with accompanying
explanatory notes.

Cameron Louis is Professor of English at the University of Regina.
