Lexicons of Early Modern English is an ever-expanding historical database offering scholars unprecedented access to early books and manuscripts documenting the growth and development of the English language. 

 

LEME sets the standard for modern linguistic research on the English language. 
LEME provides researchers with more than 754,000 word-entries from 209 monolingual, bilingual, and polyglot dictionaries, lexical encyclopedias, hard-word glossaries, spelling lists, and lexically-valuable treatises surviving in print or manuscript from the Tudor, Stuart, Caroline, Commonwealth, and Restoration periods.

 

LEME users rave about the vastness of the database and the unparalleled access to content and word meaning from within the context of the era, free from 20th century ideas and interpretations.

Announcing #TFTVLive - Watch Hyde Park Live Online Friday 10 June

Subject:    Announcing #TFTVLive - Watch Hyde Park Live Online Friday 10 June

 

This week (9-11 June) we in the Department of Theatre, Film and Television, University of York, are staging James Shirley’s rarely-staged masterpiece, Hyde Park. For those who cannot make it York, we are also live-streaming the show on Friday 10th, 7:30 BST. We hope that SHAKSPER members might be interested in this. 

 

Announcing #TFTVLive

Join us in York - some tickets still available for performances on 9, 10, 11 June

 

Is razor-sharp wit a true defence against love? 

 

It’s festival time in Hyde Park – a place for amorous intrigue, unexpected encounters, and transformations of fortune.  Three women, setting their own rules, make life-defining choices – and teach the men who pursue them a lesson in the process. 

 

In a play where Hollywood screwball comedy meets Much Ado About Nothing, James Shirley’s brilliantly funny 1632 comedy is moved to vibrant modern London, where, during one momentous day in Hyde Park, the characters’ lives will change forever.

Announcement: New Series

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 27.209  Tuesday, 7 June 2016

 

From:        Helen M. Ostovich <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

Date:         June 3, 2016 at 10:11:44 AM EDT

Subject:    Announcement: New Series

 

Late Tudor and Stuart Drama:

Gender, Performance, and Material Culture

 

Series editors: Cristina León Alfar, Hunter College, CUNY, and Helen Ostovich, McMaster University

 

Publisher: MIP University Press at Kalamazoo (https://mip-archumanitiespress.org/series/mip/)

 

This series provides a forum for monographs and essay collections that investigate the material culture, broadly conceived, of theatre and performance in England from the late Tudor to the pre-Restoration Stuart periods (c. 1550–1650).  The editors invite proposals for book-length studies engaging in the material vitality of the dramatic text, political culture, theatre and performance history, theatrical design, performance spaces, gendering court entertainments, child- and adult-actors, music, dance, and audiences in London and on tour. We are also interested in the discursive production of gender, sex, and race in early modern England in relation to material historical, social, cultural, and political structures; changes to and effects of law; monarchy and the republic in dramatic texts; theatre and performance, including performance spaces that are not in theatres.  Further topics might include the production and consumption of things and ideas; costumes, props, theatre records and accounts, gendering of spaces and geographies (court, tavern, street, and household, rural or urban), cross-dressing, military or naval excursions, gendered pastimes, games, behaviours, rituals, fashions, and encounters with the exotic, the non-European, the disabled, and the demonic and their reflection in text and performance.

 

To submit a proposal, please contact Erika Gaffney, Senior Acquisitions Editor, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

 

Best wishes,
