Seeking Enfants Terribles

If you are, or know, a genius in our field who is under 40, please let
me know.

I am organizing a symposium for spring 2005 of "the six most important
young scholars in the field of early modern English literature and
culture." I will pay to fly them here (from wherever in the world they
live) and wine and dine them for three days, and pay them an honorarium
to boot, and try to interest someone in publishing the six papers in a
collection. I know a few publishers.
Deadline for nominations is September 11, and invitations to the chosen
six horsepersons of the apocalypse will go out by the end of September.
Self-nominations are accepted. The more information you can give me
about the person-publications I should read, for instance- the better.
Nominations will be judged by me and my colleagues Sharon O'Dair and
Celia Daileader. If you are nominating someone else, their email address
would be helpful.

I was recently asked by the MacArthur Foundation to nominate people for
one of their "Genius" fellowships, and they made a point of saying that
they are interested in people still in their prime, and would appreciate
my including nominations for people under 40. Since I'm now a bedraggled
fifty-year-old, I realized that I probably didn't even KNOW the best
people under 40. This is my attempt to find them, and learn from them
where we are all headed.

Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1008 The Murder of Gonzago

Jack Heller asks: "... if Virtue is indeed virtuous, why should she
scorn her own image-or is the problem in the image, that which a mirror
and the performance reveals?"

Looking at the Folio version provides a different perspective:

 >"That you ore-stop not the modestie of Nature; for any

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
