How about Shakespeare?
27.04.2007 at 09:21:38
As at least some of the readers of this forum may have noticed: up to now I did (more or less completely) refrain from posting anything focussed on Shakespeare.  
My reasons for this are:
  • There's so much in that field that I guess it would clutter or water down or dilute or hide partially what the posting we have up to now on W4RF are about.
  • I'm incompetent in this field: I'm not subscribed to (probably nearly all of) the relevant RSS-feeds, eMail-distribution-lists, etc..
  • There are probably far enough good sites to go for those interested in Shakespeare.

So: up to now I did and do not post things like this CFP:

Shakespearean Surfaces
(panel session)

The British Shakespeare Association Conference
31st August to 2nd September 2007
University of Warwick, UK

Recent Shakespeare studies have variously explored ways in which a sense of inwardness is constructed through overlapping discourses of anatomy, subjectivity, and psychological character. By contrast, this panel seeks to examine "surfaces" as a means to understand early modern identities in Shakespearean performance and writing. Surfaces are a threshold between the body and the world, inner and outer, private and public, imagination and production, actor and spectator, writer and reader, teacher and students. As such, they are all sites for interpreting Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Permeable, opaque or transparent, surfaces are the material means by which our experience is structured and meaning is translated and mediated.

The seminar will further previous critical work that has sought to probe beneath the surfaces by re-focussing attention on surfaces themselves as complex elements in the ways meanings about Shakespeare are generated, by or from the multiple perspectives of directors, editors, actors, critics, readers, spectators, teachers, students. Examples might include (but are not limited to):

* manuscripts
* printed text
* inscription
* skin
* prosthetics
* props
* textiles (including costumes)
* architectural structures
* places of performance
* settings
* design

The 90-minute session will consist of five 5-minute position papers followed by an interactive discussion.

If you would like to present a position paper, please send a title and a short proposal (150-200 words) to:

Professor Alison Findlay (a.g.findlay@lancaster.ac.uk) and
Dr Liz Oakley-Brown (e.oakley-rown@lancs.ac.uk)

Deadline: 1st June 2007

Further details about the conference may be obtained from the British Shakespeare Association website: http://www.britishshakespeare.ws/

So: unless the members of this forum should  protest (and be willing to contribute "shakespearian" postings themselves!): I'll keep it "as is": free of postings focussed on Shakespeare by me.
