Subject: Theatrical Patronage in Early Modern Europe
Theatrical Patronage in Early Modern Europe
10-11 September 2005
"Where should a poet nowe a Patron finde,
To please his own, and please his Patrons minde?"
This is a call for papers on any topic relating to theatrical patronage
in Early Modern Europe. The conference will draw together scholars
working on patrons and patronage networks in the British Isles and
mainland Europe; it will also extend the focus of patronage studies
beyond royalty and the nobility to consider gentry and civic patronage.
We are especially keen to investigate the dynamic between patrons and
the theatre as it affects not only canonical dramatists, but also
actors, singers, female performers and children.
We would be particularly interested in papers engaging with any of the
Patronage and the circulation of dramatic texts (including dedicatory
Kinship relations and patronage networks
Non-elite and non-metropolitan patronage
Patronage by and of women and children
Theatrical representations of patronage
Patronage of commercial and amateur performance
