Ivan Michael-Scott
[log in to unmask]
 
My name is Ivan Michael-Scott. I am a young theatre director living in
Chicago, Illinois. I studied drama at Hofstra University, just outside of
New York City, and was graduated in 1993.
 
The main reason I was drawn to this group is that part of my theatrical
sensibility lies in exploring the notions of liturgical drama (such as the
Mystery and Morality plays) and ritualized drama (such as Masques). For
instance, my "wish list" of projects to direct include those mentioned above
as well as Spanish mystery plays (autos sacramentales) and the Japanese Noh
drama (which I have both directed and written on as the topic of my
undergraduate Honors Thesis). Currently, I am working on an adaptation of
the Irish myth of Deirdre, as told in its original version in the Book of
Leinster. If all goes according to plan, I should be directing this
adpatation here in Chicago this fall. Finally, notions and theories of
performance and drama in general are of great interest and importance to me.
 These are the reasons I was drawn to REED-L. I hope that I may be able to
add something to the discussions!
 
As for how I came to know of the group, I saw it listed in an index of
academic discussion groups in a book where I work (the headquarters of the
American Library Association).

I heard about REED-L through the MRDS newsletter; although I was also
aware of it because of my enduring interest in REED's goals and my
accquaintance with several REED editors, including Barbara Palmer,
Evelyn Newlyn, and David Klausner (this May I presented a paper in a
session he organized for the Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo). I have
also had some phone contact with Sally-Beth Maclean regarding her Leeds
sessions and SITM.
 
As for my own background, I received my B.A.from St. Olaf College
(Medieval studies & Latin majors--1985) and my M.A.(dramatic genre
emphasis--1990) and Ph.D.(medieval literature emphasis--1994) in English
from the University of Minnesota. This educational background well
prepared me for researching and writing my dissertation "Society and
Culture in 14th-Century Cornwall: Textual Evidence in the Cornish
__Ordinalia__" which places the Cornish cycle in its fourteenth-century
milieu by examining the intersections between the evidence of culture in
the text and that provided by contemporary records--poll taxes, bishops
registers, lay subsidies, receivers' accounts, jail deliveries, etc.
Most of this historical research was completed during my year as a
Fulbright Scholar at the University of Exeter (1989-90) where I worked
under the sponsorship of Jane A. Bakere (one of 2 people who has
produced a book-length study of the cycle) and Michael Swanton. I am
currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor of English at Iowa State
University, Ames, Iowa, and am trying to become more active in the field
now that I have a job!

I am a medievalist/novelist currently working on a series of mysteries
set in late 14th century England, the Owen Archer series. I have an
MA in English Lit, specialization medieval, and completed the coursework
for a Ph.D. in Anglo-Saxon and Medieval Lit, all at the University of
Cincinnati. Then I worked for 13 years as an editor of research
publications at the University of Washington before selling this series
and becoming a full-time writer. My books (The Apothecary Rose, The
Lady Chapel, The Nun's Tale--forthcoming) are published in the States
by St. Martin's Press, in the UK by Heinemann-Mandarin, and in Germany,
The Netherlands, and soon France and Spain. I plan other writing projects
set earlier and later in British history. My purpose in writing historical
fiction is to engage people in history and explore for myself the impact of
historical events on the ordinary people. I mix fictional and historical
characters in my books. Performance is fascinating to me (minored in
drama), and I used the York mystery plays and town waits in The Lady Chapel.
The "home base" of my current series is York. I research extensively here
and in England, and the discussion lists Mediev-L, Medfem, Perform, and
Medsci have been marvelous for me, an independent researcher who often
feels isolated. Reed-L has been mentioned on Mediev-L and Perform. I'm a
member of the Medieval Academy, the Author's Guild,
Mystery Writers of America, and the British Crime Writer's Association.

I am a secondary school teacher from Athens, Tennessee, USA. My teaching
areas are in speech and theatre as well as Advanced Placement English.
Part of our English curriculum is drama based, especially from the early
periods of history. Any information which will help both me and my students
further learn and/or appreciate early drama will be appreciated.
I learned about Reed-L from the Internet Directory. Personally I am a
novice at this and need all the help I can get!

        I am a PhD candidate at the University of Texas at Austin. I
am working on "Messianic Elements in Piers Plowman." It is my goal to
finish this Fall. I have been teaching as an Adjunct at the local
Community College and at a nearby four years institutes.
 
         I am most interested in Medieval drama because of the ways in which
biblical tales are interpreted (and reinterpreted) through the individual
plays and through the cycles. I have a particular fondness for the
fifteenth century "The Play of the Sacrament."
 
        Your list was given to me by a fellow graduate student on a

My interest in the REED-L list is not academic, purely practical.
I am a singer and musician and performer,seeking to increase my knowledge of
early British theatre and culture. I am currently associated with a Madrigal
group and a Shakepearean theatre group. I am contemplating the formation of
a new group, intended to bring fairly authentic Elizabethan entertainment to
coffee houses, Renaissance Fairs, etc.
I was made aware of your list through the Guide to Internet Theatre
Resources by Deborah Torres and Martha Vander Kolk from the U of Michigan.
Thanks for your assistance, I am looking forward to viewing your REED

As a doctoral student of English in University of Florida, I am
interested in a variety of subjects that have to do with the early
modern English culture. Even though my main attention has been given
to Shakespeare and his contemporaries, the whole early modern
literature, including that of high middle ages, is within the range of
my scholary interest. Currently I am at work on a study of
Shakespearean dramaturgy in terms of his medieval inhertance. My
future project will include the study of emblematic literature, eg.
that of Peter Daly(1979), and rhetotical approach to drama, eg. that
of Joel Altman (1978).

as a tenure-track assis. prof. at the Univ. of North Dakota. I read and

You asked for a short biography and some indication of my
interest in the subject of the REED-L list.
 
I'm currently a visiting assistant professor in the Department of
Classics at Ohio University in Athens, OH. Educated at Berkeley
(BA in Classics, MA and Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology) and at
King's College, Cambridge (second BA in Classics). Last spring
for the first time I taught an undergraduate course in mediaeval
Latin drama, something I became interested in while at Cambridge,
where I read mediaeval Latin with Peter Dronke. I have a non-
specialist's interest in early English morality and mystery
plays, and in late mediaeval English literature in general. I
don't imagine I will have much, if anything, to contribute to the
list, but I hope to learn something from eavesdropping.

I completed my doctorate in the English Department at the University
of Toronto in 1994, with a dissertation (supervised by Anne
Lancashire) entitled, "Dismemberment and Decapitation on the English
Renaissance Stage: Towards a Cultural Semiotics of Violent Spectacle."
As the subject of my dissertation suggests, I am interested not only
in "body studies" but also in achieving a fruitful integration
(dialogue?) of theatre history with literary/critical/cultural theory.
I feel fortunate in having spent much of my final year of graduate
studies working in the REED office as one of the compilers, along with
Arleane Ralph, of the appendix of "Patrons and Travelling Companies" in
the Shropshire volume. Currently, I am teaching in the English
Department on the Erindale Campus of the University of Toronto.

I heard about the list while browsing through some of the drama sites
on the internet www. I teach courses in Shakespeare, Milton, and
Renaissance Poetry and Drama at Delta State University in Cleveland,
MS. I also teach Introduction to Poetry and Drama, a course primarily
aimed at sophomore non-majors who are satisfying their general
education requirements. I'm a member of the Shakesper list, but I'm
equally interested in broader discussions of other playwrights and
issues of medieval and renaissance drama.

I learned about REED-1 from a list of internet research sources on the
Renaissance compiled by one of the University of Alabama
faculty.
 
I am a Ph.D. student in English in The Hudson Strode Program in
Renaissance Studies at the University of Alabama. I have scholarship
forthcoming in Extrapolation (Spring 96 issue) and Journal for the
Fantastic in the Arts, and fiction forthcoming in Marion Zimmer
Bradley's Fantasy Magazine.
 
My primary Renaissance interests are in drama (especially
Shakespeare, on whose work I wrote my master's thesis) and epic poetry
(especially Spenser's The Faerie Queene, on which I now am writing a
paper for--hopefully--conference presentation). Shakespeare and
Spenser are not, of course, my only research interests; I am
currently collaborating on a paper dealing with Shakespeare and
Fletcher, for example, and hope to delve into Fletcher in even more
detail this coming spring.
 
Currently I am taking a course taught by the Hudson Strode Program's
new director, Gary Taylor, in which we are examining Shakespearean
plays alongside those of other Renaissance playwrights (Fletcher,
Jonson, Dekker, among others). REED-1, judging by the description of
it that I read, sounds like a forum in which I could gather input on
various issues that have arisen or may arise in the class.

I have a Ph.D. in medieval literature from the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill, where I studied with George Kane and Don Kennedy. My
dissertation was in the representation of paganism and Islam in the romance
cycles of Troy, Alexander, and Charlemagne. The medieval courses I teach on
a regular basis are Chaucer, Arthurian Legend, and Medieval Drama, which I
studied in grad school with Alan Dessen. My medieval drama course covers all
forms from the earliest liturgical drama to the first Humanist moralities but
concentrates on the Mystery cycles and includes adaptations and productions
of the plays themselves, usually ones by the Wakefield Master. The students
get fairly elaborate--for the Wakefield _Noah_ they built a mock Ark and made
papier mache animal masks, including an elephant whose trunk could squirt
water.
 
I first learned of REED-L from a list of academic e-conferences which I got
from the Internet. I will be teaching Medieval Drama again in the Spring and
will set up an internal e-conference for the class, to which I will post
relevant threads from REED-L.

I'm a PhD candidate at the State University of New York--Binghamton,
working on a dissertation entitled "Devotion, Desire, and Dependence:
Antisemitism and The Chester Mystery Cycle." I'm working with
Marilynn Desmond, here at SUNY, Kathy Ashley, and Pamela Sheingorn.
The latter have just recently (and graciously) agreed to be part of my
committee. I've given papers at The Center for Medieval and Early
Renaissance Studies conference (at SUNY, October 1994), Kalamazoo (May
1995), and the Southeastern Medieval Studies conference (October
1995). This weekend I will be presenting a paper at the Columbia
Medieval Guild conference; I've organized two sessions and will be
chairing one at Kalamazoo, 1996. I've also been teaching at
SUNY--we've got a great program for graduat students here and I've
been able to teach composition by teaching medieval studies. My
classes have included "The Medieval Outsider" and "Medieval Drama for
a Postmodern Audience." As you can probably tell from this last
course title, I'm very interested in exploring the uses of various
postmodern theories for medieval studies. I am also, of course,
indebted to projects like REED. The Chester volume has been
particularly valuable for my work (this last is probably quite
obvious). I hope this gives you some idea of my work and my
professional life so far; if you need any other information, please
contact me.

I was told about it by Shimon Weinroth in Jerusalem.
 
I have just arrived in Israel as a new immigrant and to takeup a
professorship in the Department of Foreign Literatures & Linguistics at
Ben Gurion University. One of the three courses I am teaching this eyar
is a third year seminar in Medieval Dama. For the past 25 years I taught
at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand, and there also
taught (more in the beginningf than at the end) courses in medieval
drama, ritual, and related topics: and also puboished several articles on
ritual and medieval plays. Somewhere I must still be in people's
footnotes! Before that (going into ancient history) I taught at the
University of Manitoba and was doing medieval drama there as well.
Continuing this backward hoiurney, I gained my PhD and MA from
WashingtonUniversity in St Louis and started off at Alfred University
with a BA in 1962.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Drama at Tufts
University. I received my M.A. from the Department of Theatre at Miami
University of Ohio, and my B.A. from the Department of Theatre and Dance
at Oberlin College in Ohio.
 
My Master's thesis was on the influence of Celtic culture on the plays of
J.M. Synge. And Irish Drama continues to be of major interest to me. I
am especially curious about theatre occurring in Ireland before the 19th
century, and would like to learn more about troupes touring in Ireland in
the 16th and 17th centuries.
 
In addition to Irish Drama, I am also very curious about English Medieval
Drama; in this case, I would like to get a better feel for the time and
am very interested in the Cycles and Cornish Rounds.
 
Of course, the Elizabethan period is high on my list of interests also.
And, because I have an interest in opera history, I look forward to
discussion of music and court entertainments.
 
Well, there you have my interests in a very small nutshell. I learned
about REED-L from The Internet Guide to Theatre Resources and decided to
sign on because of my familiarity with the REED publications.

I received my B.A. from Yale University, and my Ph.D. (in English) from
U.C. Berkeley. Between my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I spent a
year teaching English at a junior high school in France. I am currently an
assistant professor of English at Susquehanna University (in Selinsgrove,
Pennsylvania), where I teach Shakespeare, first-year composition, and
various literature courses. At MLA 1995, I'll be presenting a paper about
the "Shakespeare Multimedia Project" that a Shakespeare class of mine did
as a final project for the course. I've put together a web page describing
the project, whose URL is:

I am the Project Director of the "Composition in Cyberspace" project,
funded by the Annenberg/CPB Higher Education Project. The purpose of the
project is to help faculty incorporate Internet resources in their
composition teaching. I have published articles and presented papers about
the use of Networked Virtual Reality (MOOs) in composition and literature
teaching. I am also co-chair of the Mid-Atlantic Alliance for Computers

I came across reed-l while surfing
the internet - but as usual I can't remember where I saw it mentioned.
Anyway, it was on a bulletin board of an American university, which also
had lots of information on other interesting discussion groups and
electronic libraries and archives. I hope you won't mind my applying to
the list. Early drama interests me on two levels: first of all I have a
general interest in drama as part of early modern culture, but it is also
very important in my own research work.
 
I am currently working as a senior assistant at the Department of
Cultural History at the University of Turku in Finland. I am teaching
different aspects of early modern (and medieval) culture in Europe
through lecture courses and seminars, and whenever I have time, I try to
devote some time to my own research work. I have completed my MA on
cultural history in 1993 and my phil.lic. this autumn, which means that I
am now writing my dissertation on the same subject that my earlier
theses have dealt with, fools and folly in early modern England.
 
My main goal is to find out what conceptual tools people used to make
sense of folly and fools as a phenomenon. Methodologically I would
describe my view point as rising from the French tradition of histoire
des mentalites and the concepts used in anthropological history. I try to
look at fools both in fiction and drama and in life, but as drama sources
for the 16th and early 17th century are so rich, it is natural that they
form a very important part of my material. The key concepts in
understanding fools both in life and in drama are - to my mind at least -
inversion and misrule, which operate on the level of collective
representations and shared cultural knowledge.
 
I hope this helps towards understanding my projects, and I hope my
interests are similar enough to the people on reed-l in order to get to
be a part of it!

I am a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, currently
working on a dissertation on problems of class related to medieval merchants.
As part of that project I have done a fair amount of work using the REED
collection for York, in order to contextualize in particular the Mercers'
Last Judgment. Through that project I have become very interested in
medieval drama in general, particularly its role in relation to civic
government. I am a (student) member of the Medieval and Renaissance Drama
Society, and I did my undergraduate work at Princeton. I do not have any
publications yet in print, but I did write the entry for Thomas Deloney in the
forthcoming Encyclopedia of Tudor Authors. I heard about REED-L by looking
around on the Internet, and recognizing the name REED from having used
the document collection.

My name is Bob Haas and I'm currently working on my PhD in English at the
University of North Carolina at Greensboro. My major is Renaissance
Drama and my dissertation is the study of the conception/perception of
Time in the dramatic works of Ben Jonson. I've be teaching now for about
ten years. I began in the fall of 1985 when I began work on my MA in
English at Appalachian State University. In addition to my academic
work, I'm fairly active in theatre. For eight of the past ten summers,
I've worked professionaly as an actor. And a couple of weeks ago, I was
part of UNCG Theatre's production of Pirandello's _Six Characters_. But
I try to balance the theatric with the academic--in the last year, I've
presented two papers. Oh, and in keeping with the specific subject
matter of this list, you might be interested in knowing that I've played
Mak in _2nd Shepherd's Play_.
 
I'm currently teaching Intro to Drama at UNCG while I study for my comps
in January. Next semester should find me elbow-deep in my dissertation
as well as in two sections of CAI freshman comp.
 
I'm very much interested in the subject matter of this list. Though it
is not one of my official areas of study--my two minors are 18th century
British and Rhetoric/Comp--the discussion should greatly inform my
exploration of Renaissance drama.

[log in to unmask] (Tony and Siniad Corbett)
 
I'm at the moment teaching two
undergraduate courses on medieval drama at University College, Cork,
Ireland. I did my Masters on the York cycle and am finishing a Phd on Drama
and Catechesis in English cycle plays.
 
To date I have published three articles, one in 'Medieval English Theatre'
on God in the York Old Testament plays, one on the same topic was printed in
the 1992 SITM Colloquium papers in Gerona. A third article on values in
medieval theatre is forthcoming from the Liliput press (dv). One or two
others are in preparation, and I hope to submit them to publishers in the
new year.
 
I have used the REED volumes extensively in my teaching and research, and
was very pleased when I came across the REED-L listing on the Internet. In
Ireland, one feels somewhat isolated from the mainstream of scholarship on
Medieval Theatre, a feeling that could be remedied by access to REED-L.

Biography:
 
The first time I tried to sign up to this newsgroup, I got the reply
"You are not the owner of Reed-L....". Thats when I really knew I
wanted to belong. I am a fourth year graduate student at Washington
University studying the Renaissance (English mostly) and focusing on
Drama (generally) and interested in Conscience (not mine). I found a
list of related newsgroups in one of the sub-pages to The Voice of the
Shuttle page, and that is how I came to REED-L. I have in the best
and will again soon be working with EE texts (pre 1625). I have long
hair,
short dreams, and a love for shushi and rice-krispie treats.

Robert Greer <[log in to unmask]>
 
I have studied at MIT (undergraduate -- computers and music) and at Emerson
College, Boston, and CUNY Graduate Center (graduate study in drama and theatre,
respectively) and Columbia University (Swedish, the better to read Strindberg;
I've studied in Sweden every other summer for that past five years.) My mentor
at CUNY was (and is) Prof. William Elton; at Columbia, Prof. Verne Moberg.
Before moving to New York City I sang eleven seasons for the Boston Symphony
Orchestra both at Symphony Hall and at Tanglewood.
 
I am a tenured member of the faculty at (Borough of) Manhattan Community
College, another campus of CUNY; in the theatre we refer to this as my day
job. My actual profession is that of director and sometime producer, lately
of Scandinavian plays in their English language premiers: Nordic Theatre
Festival NY 1995 at Barnard College, September; Viveca Lindfors' IN SEARCH OF
STRINDBERG, Actors Studio, NY, April, and Stockholm, August 1995; and Kristina
Lugn's THE HOUR OF THE DOG, New York City and Edinborough Festival, 1993.
 
My interest in REED-L is primarily that of a theatre practicioner (i.e., I am
interested in staging plays and operas -- I forgot to mention earlier that I
served as tech. director for several operas in Boston before learing to direct)
but I do have some experience editing with Professor Elton (and translating
with Professor Moberg). I have had Greek and Russian as well as Swedish and
can make my way through Danish, Norwegian and Old English if need be.
 
I have received a travel grant from the Society for the Advancement of
Scandinavian Studies and a summer Carnegie Fellowship to work in computer-
aided instruction at Carnegie-Mellon University, as well a grant from the
Nordic Council, Copenhagen, for the Nordic Theatre Festival.

I have always had a interest in subjects that deal with the time period
between 1200 ad. and 1800 ad. It seems that I have picked the right
subject.

DRAMA AS MEDIEVAL COMEDY. But drama of all periods fascinates me, and I
customarily teach a lower-division introduction to drama each semester,
along with a revolving sequence of upper-division and/or graduate courses
in Shakespeare, modern drama, medieval English literature, Chaucer, or
Arthurian romance. My present research focusses on Images of Woman in
Medieval Iconography and Literature; Scribal Traditions in the Stage
Directions of the Towneley Plays; and the "Hatted" (coiffed) Serpent in the
Iconography of Eden.
