Subject:      CFP - World Shakespeare Congress Seminar 14

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

Call for papers - Seminar No. 14.
"Must I remember?": Trauma and Memory in Early Modern England

Seminar Leaders
Margaret Healy (University of Sussex, UK) and
Rebecca Totaro (Florida Gulf Coast University, USA)

Seminar Description:
As he recalls his mother's affection for his deceased father, Hamlet suffers from a
memory that he cannot dislodge. "Let me not think on't," he exclaims, but he
reiterates his painful memory in multiple ways thereafter. Shakespeare's plays and
poetry contain many forms of narrative trauma, reviving time and again for public
consumption national, personal, and imaginary dramas of suffering. This seminar
seeks papers that explore some aspect of the following: trauma in the plays, poetry,
and/or prose of Shakespeare and/or his contemporaries within and outside of London's
drama scene; texts that bear the marks of personal, social, national, religious, or
authorial trauma; the implications of representing and viewing trauma. Papers may be
broadly theoretical or particularized readings.

Deadline for proposals of papers just extended until 30th September 2010:

Best wishes,
Rebecca Totaro
Professor of English
Florida Gulf Coast University
