Session on Bibliography and Textual Research:
"The Audiences of London's Playhouses and the Bookbuyers of St. Paul's:
Readers in Early Modern England."
This seminar will address how and why Early Modern Dramatic texts were
printed from London's playhouse manuscripts. Recent textual scholarship
is now focusing on the concept that playwrights such as Shakespeare
wrote, not only for a playhouse audience, but for a book buying public
as well. Papers that address the history of authorship, printing,
marketing, manuscript acquisition, and private patronage are welcome.
Abstracts of 300 words should be submitted to: Terri Bourus
Extended deadline: 15 May 2005
