Subject:      Shakespeare and the Italian Renaissance Seminar - WSC

Ninth World Shakespeare Congress: 
Renaissance Shakespeare / Shakespeare Renaissances 
Prague, Czech Republic -- 17-22 July 2011 

Call for papers -- Seminar No. 3. 
Shakespeare and the Italian Renaissance: 
Appropriation, Transformation, Opposition. 

Leaders: 
Michele Marrapodi (University of Palermo, Italy), Robert Henke (Washington 
University, USA). 

This seminar aims to place Shakespeare's works within the context of the European Renaissance 
and, more specifically, within the context of Italian cultural, dramatic, and literary traditions, with 
reference to the impact and influence of both classical and contemporary culture. The topics may 
range from a reassessment of Italian novellas, theatre, and discourses as direct or indirect sources, 
analogues, paralogues, and intertexts for the construction of Shakespeare's poetry and drama to a 
reconsideration of other cultural transactions, such as travel and courtesy books, the arts, fencing, 
dancing, fashion, and so forth. 

The critical perspective of the seminar is to regard the pervasive presence of the Italian world in 
early modern England not only as a traditional treasure trove of influence and imitation but also 
as a potential cultural force of ideological appropriation, transformation, and opposition. 

(Registration to Seminars extended until 30th November 2010) 

Best wishes. 

Michele Marrapodi
