at MLA in Chicago 1999.

In addition to Bob Clark's session on The Representation of Jews on
the Medieval and Early Modern Stage mentioned in a recent note, there
is another session on Carnival. Here is the official call:

Carnival and Popular Culture in Medieval Drama.  Comparative papers
welcome, especially those that link early cultural festivals with
contemporary carnivals throughout the world.  Interdisciplinary and
miltimedia presentations are encouraged.
