Subject: CFP: "The Presence of Shakespeare and War" at SAA
"The Presence of Shakespeare and War"
Leader: Evelyn Gajowski, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Research Seminar, Shakespeare Association of America, San Diego, 5-7
Military conflict is a subject Shakespeare dramatized time and again,
particularly in the histories and the tragedies. How do his
representations of war strike us--embedded, as we are, in the 21st
century? How do contemporary lived experience and representations of
war shape the meanings we construct in Shakespeare? How does he gender
military experience? How do we? All theoretical perspectives are
welcome, especially those interrogating how our moment (in)forms
Shakespeare, as well as how his moment (in)forms us.
