CALL FOR PAPERS
for the Seminar:

"Locating Early Modern Repertories: Shakespeare & the London Playing 
Companies"

This seminar will consider the drama of Shakespeare and his 
contemporaries in relation to early modern playing companies, be that 
the companies who staged their plays, companies by whose repertories 
they were influenced, or companies whose repertories were influenced by 
them. It is informed by the work of critics including Roslyn Knutson, 
Andrew Gurr, Scott McMillin and Sally-Beth MacLean, Mary Bly and Lucy 
Munro who have variously examined early modern drama within a 
reportorial framework. It will particularly welcome papers that address 
the global/local theme of the conference: this could (for example) be by 
examining the theatrical marketplace of early modern London, or by 
considering the impact of changing locales on performance, whether 
through touring in England or abroad or through moving between theatres 
in the capital. Some other possible topics for discussion are suggested 
below:

* the relationship between playing companies and their London audiences 
and/or their aristocratic patrons
* competition, collaboration, or influence between company repertories
* London's play-making geography: where actors and players lived, the 
relationship between theatres and their surrounding communities
* playing companies and early modern civic culture: company finance, 
apprenticeship, relationships with the livery companies, involvement in 
civic drama.
