CALL FOR PAPERS
for the Seminar:
"Shakespeare's Europe: Early Modern Contexts"
Seminar Leaders:
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 
(This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Michele Marrapodi (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) 
Proposals should be submitted by 10 June 2009.
