CALL FOR PAPERS
The University of Cincinnati will host
The Ohio Shakespeare Conference
October 7-10, 2004
Shakespeare in the Context of his Rivals and Collaborators
Plenary Speakers include:
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 to Jonathan Kamholtz, Department of English and
Comparative Literature, University of Cincinnati, ML #69, Cincinnati, OH

The Ohio Shakespeare Conference 2004, "Shakespeare's Others," is
