Subject:    Southeastern Renaissance Conference


[Editor’s Note: Thanks to Arlynda Boyer for calling attention to this conference. –Hardy]


Early modernists: this is NOT a grad-student conference, but it is grad-friendly, in the sunny South, and has a reputation for being great fun. And note the truly amazing price: under $20 gets you registration and a subscription to the conference’s published papers!


Dear Colleague,


The 72st annual meeting of the Southeastern Renaissance Conference will be held on October 2-3, 2015, at The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. We have promise of a colorful fall, warm hospitality from our hosts—Reid Barbour, Jessica Wolfe, Mary Floyd-Wilson, and colleagues at UNC-CH—and an exciting gathering of Renaissance scholars from across the country. Let me ask you, your colleagues, and doctoral candidates from all disciplines in the Renaissance arts and humanities to join the SRC, submit papers, and attend this interesting meeting. If you know of other scholars who should receive this information, please forward this email to them, especially to colleagues and graduate students at your own institution.

Please submit your full essay (20 minute reading time) by email attachment to Dr. Susan Staub, President of the Southeastern Renaissance Conference, staubsc (at) appstate (dot) edu, by June 1, 2015.


Submission of your work to the Conference is also an automatic submission to Renaissance Papers, the journal of the Conference. Even those articles not accepted for delivery at the meeting will be considered for publication in the journal.


At $17.50 per year (which includes registration fees, conference updates, refreshments and festive entertainment, and a subscription to Renaissance Papers) we remain one of the great bargains in academic conferences. Join now; or if you are already a member, please remain current in your dues, especially since Renaissance Papers 2014, now in production, can only be sent to current members. Fill out the attached form with new or revised contact information, and mail your dues ($17.50) to Emily Stockard, SRC Secretary-Treasurer, College of Arts and Letters, DW 303B, Florida Atlantic University, 3200 College Avenue, Davie, FL 33314.

Adventures in Original Pronunciation

Subject:    Re:  OP


For those who’d be interested in some earlier reflections on the pronunciation of names like “Gobbo” and “Launcelet,” I’ve posted an online version of “Textual Deviancy in The Merchant of Venice,” an article that appeared in THE MERCHANT OF VENICE: New Critical Essays, edited by John W. Mahon and Ellen Mcleod Mahon (Routledge, 2002). Click on for a quick link to it.


And visit or click on for a link to “Site-Reading Shakespeare’s Dramatic Scores,” a related article that appeared in Shakespearean Illuminations: Essays in Honor of Marvin Rosenberg, edited by Jay L. Halio and Hugh Richmond (University of Delaware Press, 1998). 


Both essays are pertinent, not only to issues related to Original Pronunciation, but to the argument that Lukas Erne was later to make in Shakespeare as Literary Dramatist (Cambridge University Press, 2003).

The Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference

Call for Papers

“Negotiating Shakespeare: History, Culture, and Context”

October 9-11, 2015

Bowling Green State University

Bowling Green, Ohio




Please join us October 9-11, 2015 in Bowling Green, Ohio for the annual Ohio Valley Shakespeare Conference.


Our plenary speaker will be Ian Smith, professor of English at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania and author of Race and Rhetoric in the Renaissance: Barbarian Errors (Palgrave, 2009). 

The conference will also feature America’s longest running touring company, the National Players, who will perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream and offer a workshop for actors.


This year, the OVSC is especially interested in papers and panels on the topic of negotiating Shakespeare through history, culture, and context. We welcome a variety of approaches to this topic. Essays might consider, for instance, how we negotiate Shakespeare in the twenty-first century. How do adaptations of Shakespeare’s work negotiate the gulf of over 400 years that stands between early modern texts and us? Which theories of time and/or history are the most fruitful in negotiating our relationship to the early modern era and its texts? How do we negotiate the use of such “old” texts, like Shakespeare’s, in the contemporary classroom. Alternately, essays could inquire about Shakespeare’s negotiation of his culture, in relation, for instance, to governmental censorship or playhouse politics. Or, papers might examine negotiations within Shakespeare’s plays, including characters’ negotiations of identity as it relates to gender, class, race, sexuality, and/or religion. Discussions of bad faith negotiations, such as Aaron’s false promise of freedom for Martius and Quintus in exchange for one of the Andronici’s hands, are also encouraged as are those that examine characters’ negotiations of language and social systems found within the plays. 


Proposals for papers of 20 minutes, roundtable topics, or panels of three or four members on Shakespeare’s work and that of his contemporaries are welcome. Please send abstracts of 300-500 words to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by August 1, 2015.


The OVSC publishes a volume of selected papers each year and conferees are welcome to submit revised versions of their papers for consideration. Students who present are eligible to compete for the M. Rick Smith Memorial Prize. More information is available at


This year’s conference is sponsored by Bowling Green State University, Lourdes University, Owens Community College, and the University of Toledo.
