Theatrical Patronage in Early Modern Europe

Keele University
10-11 September 2005

"Where should a poet nowe a Patron finde,
To please his own, and please his Patrons minde?"

This two-day conference will draw together scholars working on early
modern patrons of theatre and patronage networks.  In addition to
re-investigating traditional subjects within patronage studies, such as
royal and noble patrons, it will seek to extend the focus of such
studies, considering, for example, wider metropolitan and print-related
networks.  Subjects of papers include: analysis of types of patronage
and patronage networks; Shakespeare's unrecognised tributes to his
patrons; James Shirley's relationships with his patrons; patronage and
the commercial theatre; Stuart and Bourbon royal patronage; patronage by
audiences in theatre and print.

Speakers include: Rebecca Bailey; Charles Cathcart; Richard Dutton;
James Knowles; Kate McLuskie; Clare McManus; John Peacock; Diane
Purkiss; Julie Sanders; Gretchen Smith; Steve Sohmer; Alan Somerset.

Full delegate fee including accommodation and meals:
