The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 8.1242. Thursday, 18 December 1997.
Date: Wednesday, 17 Dec 1997 22:47:58 -0700 (MST)
Subject: MLA Convention Attendees: Please note this change
I'm forwarding this for a friend who is just now applying to join
SHAKSPER. Rhonda wants to make sure as many interested people know about
the change as possible.
(With apologies for cross-postings)
MLA Convention attendees, please note the scheduling change below:
Session 156: "A Local Habitation with a Name: Hospitality and Hostility
in the Renaissance City" has been rescheduled to 10:15-11:30 a. m. on
Sunday, December 28 (which is *earlier* than the Convention Program
listing) and will be held at the Toronto Convention Center 205B.
Please note this change in your program. The papers in this session
investigate London's treatment of people of different classes, genders,
and nationalities in a variety of genres from prose tracts, to city
comedy, to mock wills, and coronation pageants.
The speakers and papers are correct as listed in the program:
"Queens and Paupers: Give and Take in London's Streets" Rhonda Lemke
Sanford, University of Colorado, Boulder
"'Of London is her race': Favored Neighbors and Unwanted Guests in
Renaissance London" Lloyd Edward Kermode, Rice University
"The City Stage: Satirizing Sumptuous Fabrics" Roze Hentschell,
University of California, Santa Barbara
"Regulating Traffic: Bodies and Urban Space in Jacobean City Comedy"
Jean E. Howard, Columbia University
Since corrections to the program will be distributed at the MLA rather
than mailed this year, and since this session is now *earlier* than
originally scheduled, I wanted to get the word out prior to the
Convention. Please contact me if you have any questions about this
