The New Transhistoricism: Materialities of Myth in Early Modern
England


The primary objective of this proposed special session at MLA (Dec.
2000) is to feature three papers that re-think the historical
importance of classical myth in England between 1485 and 1660.  Of
particular interest is research that examines appropriations of
specific Greek / Roman myths within the discourses of early modern
industries or links between myths and specific early modern material
practices. Two of many possible examples: recruitment of mythical
figures for the PR campaigns of certain guilds; the prominence of the
Cadmus myth in early modern handwriting manuals.


Send proposed paper title, 300 - 500 word abstract, and brief scholarly
bio  -- via e-mail only -- by March 15.
