Call for Papers
Seminar 15:
Shakespeare's Italian Context: Influences, Appropriations, 
Intertextualities

This seminar aims to place Shakespeare's poetry and drama within a 
transnational process of cultural and literary exchanges characterizing 
the migration of ideas, discourses, and influences, as well as the 
transmission of models, topoi, and theatregrams which contributed to the 
formation of early modern English culture despite the presence of 
domestic anxieties and the resistance of national divides.

The seminar welcomes papers which bring this cultural context into 
focus, discussing the impact of Italian literary traditions on the 
linguistic, stylistic, and rhetorical construction of Shakespeare's 
drama, providing a representation of foreign cultures on the 
Shakespearean stage, and blending the English and Italian Renaissance 
together within an intercultural perspective.

Topics may include all areas of influence and intertextuality, ranging 
from narrative, dramatic, and emblematic traditions to any social, 
educational, and political discourse that may have affected 
Shakespeare's works.

Please send a 200-word abstract of the proposed paper directly to the 
convenors of the seminar before 31 January 2010:
