Call for Papers 1998

Thirty-third International Congress on Medieval Studies
Kalamazoo, Michigan
7-10 May 1998

Shakespeare at Kalamazoo will be sponsoring two sessions at the 1998
Congress, both devoted to papers specifically relating Shakespeare to the
broader canvas of cultural history.

      Session 1. Shakespeare in the Tradition of the Performing Arts

      Session 2. Shakespeare and Cultural Continuity

Papers for Session 1 should demonstrate evidence in Shakespeare's plays of
medieval ideas of theatre and of medieval performance practices and
dramaturgical conventions. Papers for Session 2 should focus on the
representation in Shakespeare's plays of late medieval and early modern
cultural trends.

Papers are invited from scholars in the fields of art history, music,
folklore, history, philosophy, theatre history, history of science, as
well as literature, both English and continental.
