Subject:      Microhistory

At the risk of exhuming old topics, may I draw attention to an article entitled 
'Shakespeare Studies, Presentism, and Micro-History' in Cahiers Elisabethains, 
76 (Autumn 2009), 35-43. It offers a critique of 'presentism' and recommends 
'Microhistory' as the bastard offspring of new historicism. And it also gives a 
few details regarding a Thomas Kyd, hiding under Mrs. Gildserson's bed, in 1578.
