Subject: CFP: Unmasquing Prince Henry (3/1/06; 10/26/06-10/29/06)
Call for Papers: "Unmasquing Prince Henry"
It is well-known that Henry, Prince of Wales (1594-1612) was central to
the Stuart court masque and much of London's civic pageantry toward the
end of the first decade of James I. Consequently, critical interest in
Henry's performance of majesty is too frequently confined to a select
few authors and literary modes. Papers unmasquing Prince Henry are
sought for a panel to be proposed for the Sixteenth-Century Studies
Conference in Salt Lake City, UT, October 26-9, 2006. Interdisciplinary
approaches examining Henry and his court in terms of childhood and
family life, political or social history, patronage, sport and
recreation, religious practice, fashion and portraiture, architecture
and gardening, science and technology, adventuring and colonization, and
the prince's autopsy and funeral are especially welcome. Please send
March 1, 2006.
