Dear Colleagues, Comparative Drama is sponsoring three sessions for the International Congress on Medieval Studies (Kalamazoo) next spring, and we have slots open for two of those sessions. A short description of each follows:

*Private Reading and Public Performance* engages a topic that has been the subject of considerable scholarly debate in recent years. Assumptions that premodern texts were designed to be read in solemn silence by a contemplative, singular reader are beginning to be considered in their authentic contexts, some of which are far less "private" than we have imagined. This is a continuation of that thread of inquiry.

*Staging Justice in Early Drama* underscores the integral relation between the law and the theater by focusing on scenes of adjudication and the dramatization of legal discourse prior to the sixteenth century.

Abstracts can be sent by email attachment to [log in to unmask] or in hard copy to the Dept. of English, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI 49008-5332 by September 15.

All the best,
Eve Salisbury
