Call for Papers
Shakespeare's Italian Context: Influences, Appropriations,
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
Please send a 200-word abstract of the proposed paper directly to the
convenors of the seminar before 31 January 2010:
The convenors will let the proponents know whether their proposals have
been accepted by no later than 28 February 2010.
