Dramatic Enactments of Suffering Bodies in Restoration England

American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies
38th Annual Meeting, Atlanta, Georgia
March 22-25, 2007

Deadline for Submissions: September 15, 2006

This seminar seeks papers that explore dramatic representations of suffering bodies during the period of the Restoration, with a particular focus on the ways in which suffering bodies are situated as martyrs, scapegoats, or victims of political plots. Papers that address theatrical productions including scenes of mutilation or decollation are welcome, in addition to papers about scaffold dramas, public executions, and other forms of public spectacle as performance. Papers that investigate how suffering bodies proved pleasurable sights on either the Restoration stage or in “public” proceedings are especially desired.

One- to two-page proposals and a brief CV should be sent by e-mail to Misty Krueger at
