Subject:      CFP: ASTR Shakespearean Performance Research Group

Call For Papers, Deadline: Tuesday, May 31, 2011

The Shakespearean Performance Research Group of the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR)

American Society for Theatre Research / Theatre Library Association 2011 Conference
Montreal, Quebec Canada
November 17 – 20, 2011
Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel

The Shakespearean Performance Research Group of the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) provides an ongoing home for the study of Shakespearean performance within ASTR.

For the 2011 conference, “Economies of Theatre,” we seek papers that address issues relating to the history, theory, and practice of Shakespeare performance. While Research Group papers need not be tied to the conference theme, our inquiries do engage with several areas germane to the themes of the Montreal conference and we particularly invite papers that broadly interrogate the "economies" of Shakespearean performance. For example, this questioning might involve the financial structure of early or late modern theatre and performance in some dimension, the symbolic exchange in which Shakespearean drama and performance continue to function, the ways in which relationships between “literary” and “performative” economies have been construed throughout history, how financial/economic imperatives have shaped Shakespearean performance on stage and in other media, or how conceptions of emotional and affective economies have influenced the economies of exchange between producers and consumers of Shakespeare.

Selected papers will be assigned to subgroups by the group’s conveners, Catherine Burriss, Franklin J. Hildy, Robert Ormsby, Don Weingust and W. B. Worthen, and the conveners will organize on-line communication of subgroup members before the conference. At the conference session, papers will be discussed first within subgroups, after which the subgroups will come together to exchange ideas.

Those wishing to propose a paper should submit a 200-word abstract and 50-word academic biographical statement, including current affiliation(s), if any, by Tuesday, May 31st, 2011, to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
