The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 21.0278 Monday, 12 July 2010
Date: July 12, 2010 8:42:57 AM EDT
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.
