The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference

 

Call For Papers

 

Shakespeare and Ethics

 

Michigan State University

November 3-5, 2011

 

Extended deadline for abstract submission: September 15, 2011.

 

The planning committee of the Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference is seeking abstracts and paper proposals that investigate questions of ethics in the work of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. We're thinking of ethics in a broad sense, to include issues of gender, race, class, culture, religion, labor, economics, justice, environmentalism, and nature. Papers might consider issues of ethics as they are reflected upon within a particular play or more broadly within the dramatic and poetic works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, and may take up questions concerning the role of Shakespeare as a cultural icon and literary figure, his works within the performance tradition or in the English and global literary canons, and in relation to early modern as well as contemporary values.

 

Abstracts are due by September 15, 2011. All inquiries should be directed to: Sandra Logan This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or c/o Department of English / 201 Morrill Hall / Michigan State University / 48824. E-mail abstracts to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with the subject line OVSC Proposal. Please include contact information, academic affiliation, if any, and status: independent, faculty, grad student, or undergrad.
