CALL FOR PAPERS

11-13 September 2009
Seminar: Shakespeare's Next Editors
Though the activity of editing the plays of Shakespeare and his
contemporaries was for over two hundred years the principle scholarly
method for investigating these works, many younger scholars today
confront an academic establishment that relegates editing, bibliography,
and text studies to secondary or peripheral positions in graduate,
doctoral, and junior faculty programs. This is particularly unfortunate
given the exponential increase in innovative technologies,
methodologies, and theories that encourage fresh approaches to essential
questions about these plays.
This session seeks papers from, for, or about the next generation of
Shakespeare editors and that explore particular approaches, theories, or
case studies in the editorial study and representation of early modern
dramatic texts. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the use
of new digital technologies in editing, "post-Theory" philosophies in
the construction of edited works, the place of editorial activities in
modern theatrical contexts, and the pedagogical application of editorial
insights as teaching tools in the twenty-first century classroom.
Please send your proposal (200 word max) to: Matteo Pangallo
Proposals should be submitted by 31 May 2009.
