Call for Papers
International Congress for Medieval Studies, Leeds
12-15 July 2010

Records of Early English Drama
Sponsored Sessions

The IMC's special theme of travel and exploration for 2010 holds special 
appeal for those working in the field of early theatre across 
conventional chronological and geographical boundaries. In the 
exploration of varying forms of early entertainment, notions of travel 
can be viewed at many different levels of focus. From the close-up 
itinerary of a cycle play travelling through the streets of York, to the 
wide-angle view of patrons using travelling performing troupes to 
express wealth and power, the study of drama as it was performed is a 
study of travel. These sessions will consider the manifold ways in which 
travel can define the study of early English and continental 
entertainment, from the Middle Ages and beyond to 1642.

Possible topics include:

* Patrons and performers on the road: itineraries, intersections, 
motives for travel

* Routes, transportation methods, locating performance venues

* Cultural exchange: cross-channel and continental touring

* Loci of control: how patrons established authority through personal 
travel, marriage, land acquisition, and how the use of performing 
troupes engaged with these efforts

* Challenges to travelling entertainers: geographical, religious, and 
political.

* New technologies that enable the study of touring companies, digital 
imaging and mapping

Proposals for 20-minute papers are now invited. E-mail submission is 
highly encouraged: Please send 100 word abstracts and contact 
information to either:

John A. Geck              OR     Sally-Beth MacLean
