CALL FOR PAPERS
for the Seminar:
"Shakespeare's Europe: Early Modern Contexts"
Keir Elam (University of Bologna)
Michele Marrapodi (University of Palermo)
This seminar aims to place Shakespeare's drama and poetry within a
transnational process of cultural and literary exchange characterizing
the migration of ideas, discourses, and influences, together with the
transmission of models, topoi, and theatregrams, which contributed to
the formation of early modern culture, despite the presence of domestic
anxieties and the strength of national divides.
The seminar welcomes papers which bring into focus this 'continental'
context, discussing the impact of European cultural traditions on the
theatrical, ideological, linguistic, and rhetorical construction of
Shakespeare's drama; the representation of foreign cultures on the
Shakespearean stage; or the dialogue between the English and European
Renaissance within an intercultural perspective.
Topics may include all areas of influence and intertextuality, ranging
from social, educational, and political discourses, together with
narrative, dramatic, and iconographic traditions, that may throw light
on Shakespeare's works.
Please send your proposal (200 word max) to: Keir Elam
Proposals should be submitted by 31 May 2009.
