No. 1. Representations of the Master-Servant Relationship in Early
Modern European Drama. Leaders Frances Barasch (Baruch/City University
of NY, USA) and Rosalind Kerr (University of Alberta, Canada).

Early modern theatrical representations frequently interrogate the
boundaries delineating master-servant relationships.  The popularity of
this topos suggests that spectators were greatly interested in watching
plays in which the social hierarchy could be subverted and patriarchal
authority overturned.  Papers are invited offering critical perspectives
on master-servant or master-subordinate themes, structures, genres,
performance conventions (such as transvestite disguise), and audience
response in Shakespeare and other early modern theatres of England,
Europe, and Asia.  Any of a variety of approaches may be considered,
including but not limited to theatre history, gender/queer studies,
philosophical/psychoanalytic/political/ social interpretation, cultural
exchange, or modern appropriations of Shakespeare.
