Subject:        CFP Ohio Shakespeare Conference 2004

October 7-10, 2004

Shakespeare's Others:
Shakespeare in the Context of his Rivals and Collaborators

Plenary Speakers will include:

David Riggs
Lars Engle
Sara Eaton

Proposals for papers are welcome on a wide range of topics and issues,
including: The Non-Shakespearean Canon; What Shakespeare Read; Deviant
Sexualities; Performing Shakespeare's Contemporaries; Literary
Reputations; Non-Shakespearean Motivations; Performing Shakespeare's
Contemporaries; Sentiment; Heroic Cultures; Jonsonian Realism and
Jonsonian Fantasy; The Rise of Revenge; Who are Shakespeare's Heirs
Today? In general, papers are welcome that help particularize
Shakespeare by making his works, his language, his characters, and his
conventions seem less normal. Individual sessions are likely to be
devoted to several of the major playwrights, and to some of the themes,
character types, or genres that help us align Shakespeare with the other
writers who form his artistic context, including magic, representations
of Jews, urban settings, the image of Italy, misogyny, the history play,
and so on. Papers with a broader scope are welcome as well:  What do we
mean by early modern authorship and originality? What is a literary context?

Send 250 word abstracts by August 1, 2004 to Jonathan Kamholtz,
Department of English and Comparative Literature, University of
Cincinnati, ML #69, Cincinnati, OH 45221-0069, or email them to
