Environment and Identity Conference

20-21 July 2011, Pendennis Castle, Falmouth, Cornwall

Hosted by Exeter University and English Heritage at Pendennis Castle, and also supported by the PPRE (Peninsula Partnership for the Rural Environment), this conference is part of a series of research networking events funded by the AHRC Landscape and Environment Programme. Previous workshops organised by the network were designed to explore early modern discourses of environmental change and sustainability. The conference will extend this scope and bring together scholars interested in a variety of time periods and subjects from across the humanities, social sciences, development studies and policy forums. Its purpose is to generate interdisciplinary, comparative thematic and cross-period collaborations to explore the ways in which individuals and groups express, negotiate and transform their identities in response to changing environmental conditions. The interdisciplinary panels address specific issues under the following broad themes: landscapes and communities, climates, identities, resources, and global narratives of environmental change.

Attending to Early Modern Women: Remapping Routes and Spaces

Call for Proposals, Milwaukee, Wisconsin June 21-June 23, 2012

Attending to Early Modern Women, which has been held seven times at
the University of Maryland since 1990, is moving to the University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee, thanks to the generous support of the College of
Letters and Science at UWM. The conference will retain its innovative
format, using a workshop model for most of its sessions to promote
dialogue, augmented by a keynote, and a plenary session on each of the
four conference topics: communities, environments, exchanges, and
pedagogies. It will be held at the UWM School of Continuing Education
Conference Center in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, within easy
walking distance of the lakeshore, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the
Milwaukee Public Museum, and the Amtrak station. Attendees will stay
in the near-by and newly renovated Doubletree Hotel. The conference
will run from Thursday June 21 through Saturday June 23, 2012, and
attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in a special
pre-conference seminar on Wednesday June 20 at the Center for
Renaissance Studies at the Newberry Library in Chicago.

Detailed instructions on submitting workshop proposals may be found
on the conference website:

Attending to Early Modern Women: Remapping Routes and Spaces

How did women situate themselves in the early modern world, and how
did they move through it, in both real and imaginary locations? How
did gender figure in understandings of spatial realms, from the inner
space of the body to the outer spaces of the cosmos? How do new
disciplinary and geographic connections shape the ways in which we
think, write, and teach about the early modern world? Taking as our
inspiration the move of Attending to Early Modern Women from Maryland
to Milwaukee, we will consider these issues in relationship to the
following topics:

Women’s actions in neighborhoods, villages, cities, states, and
empires; family and kinship networks; establishing and breaching
boundaries in sexual and gender expression; religious communities;
exclusions, exiles, and expulsions.

Gendered landscapes and soundscapes; the body and its borders; built
and invented realms and frontiers; cartographic spaces; gender and the
new cosmology and anatomy.

Travel, migration, and displacement; imagined spatial crossings; new
interdisciplinary connections; the circulation of manuscripts, books,
objects, and ideas; consumerism and material culture; transnational
and transoceanic links.

Traveling new routes in teaching; the virtual spaces of technology and
teaching; early modern women in the realm of museums and galleries for
adults and children; issues in academic institutions and in publishing.

Indoor Jacobean Playhouse Postdoctoral Research Associate

(King’s College London/Shakespeare’s Globe)

Six months, part time: 2 days a week. Closing date: 27 June 2011

Project: Sam Wanamaker’s vision for the Globe extended beyond the “wooden-O” – one of the most iconic and atmospheric performance spaces in London. In addition to a purpose-built education centre, which is due for completion this spring, he also intended there to be a second indoor theatre space – the skin of which was incorporated into the blueprint of the Globe complex. When Shakespeare’s Globe finally opened in 1997 after more than twenty-seven years’ planning and four years’ construction, the indoor Jacobean theatre was left as a shell, to be divided and partitioned into rooms for education workshops and rehearsals. Now, fourteen years after the theatre opened, the Globe is about to embark on the restoration of this indoor theatre to its intended purpose, with a stunning new interior. The research associateship will contribute to the research required to create this interior.

Role: We seek a postdoctoral research associate to conduct research into the materials, interior decorative specifications and staging conditions of early modern indoor theatres in order to assist the Shakespeare Globe Trust as it embarks upon its project to construct a playhouse based on the Worcester College drawings (17th century) thought initially to be by Renaissance architect Inigo Jones, but now understood to be the work of his protégé John Webb. The RA will work closely with Dr Farah Karim-Cooper (Globe Education) and Professor Gordon McMullan (London Shakespeare Centre, King’s College London) and will report both to the Globe Architecture Research Group and to the Director of the London Shakespeare Centre. The research associateship is designed to participate in developing the intellectual frameworks which will underpin the physical build of the new theatre space at the Globe and the production of plays in the new space; it is also designed to encourage knowledge exchange between Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and the London Shakespeare Centre at King’s and to contribute to the development of meaningful cross-disciplinary activity at King’s, as appropriate. The role will therefore build on the existing relationship between the London Shakespeare Centre and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre – currently manifest in the joint running of a highly successful MA programme, a collaborative doctoral research project, a series of joint postgraduate research seminars, and the joint teaching of a popular BA module – at post-doctoral collaborative research level.


· Archival Research

· Site visits (to survey extant historic buildings/houses with a view to gathering information about decorative schemes and types of materials)

· Analysis of indoor repertories of period 1599-1642

· Workshops (to determine conditions of staging and decorative design and the relationship of the design to aspects of future performance)


· Written reports and oral presentations to Globe Architecture Research Group and Project Management Committee and to the Director and members of the London Shakespeare Centre at King’s

· The organisation of, and contribution to, a one-day conference on indoor playing to be held at King’s in October 2011

· Contribution to publicity/profile of the project for fundraising and awareness.

Person specifications:

· Must have (or is close to receiving) a Ph.D. in Early modern Drama and /or Theatre and an appropriate track record of research/interest in the practicalities of early modern drama

· Must work and communicate well with others

· Must be able to demonstrate efficiency and experience in archival work

· Experience in the running of conferences/colloquia would be an advantage

· Knowledge-transfer experience would also be an advantage

For further enquiries please contact Professor Gordon McMullan or Dr Farah Karim-Cooper

Please send a CV and a cover letter specifying your suitability to the role to Jamie Arden (Head of Operations and Events, Globe Education)

Intercultural Knowledge Transfer: Europe and Islam in late Antiquity and the Middle Ages

International Workshop, 15 June 2011, 5-7pm, Christopher Ingold Ramsay Lecture Theatre Gower Street UCL

This workshop investigates the role of culture and knowledge transfer
between different religious communities, focusing, in this case, on
exchanges between mediterranean culture of late antiquity and emerging
Islam, Jewish-Islamic cultural transfer, and instances of knowledge transfer
from Islamic sources to Jewish communities. Thus, the workshop proposes to
understand religious communities as arenas of knowledge production and
reception, as cultural contexts stimulating knowledge exchange and transfer.

text of late antiquity
• Dr François de Blois (UCL), Medieval Islamic Science: Its
Achievements, Limitations, and Transmission to Western Europe

British Country House

Registration is now open for The Intellectual Culture of the British Country House 1500-1700, a multi-disciplinary conference hosted by the Centre for Early Modern Studies at the University of Sussex, 13th-15th of July.

The Intellectual Culture of the Country House, 1500-1700 is an international conference to be held at the University of Sussex over three days in July 2011. It emerges from and celebrates the fruitful connections established in recent years between the Centre for Early Modern Studies at Sussex and Petworth House (the southern seat of the Earls of Northumberland in this period), but is intended to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scholars working in many different contexts, both inside and outside the academy, to explore fresh perspectives on this newly vibrant field.

The intellectual networks associated with country houses in the early modern period – with library collections at their centre – will be charted by two plenaries who are leading figures in this area: Professor James Raven (History, University of Essex) and Professor Maurice Howard (History of Art, University of Sussex). Professor Raven’s plenary – ‘Country Houses and the Beginning of Bibliomania’ – will be a public lecture organised in conjunction with the National Trust and Lord Egremont, and will be held at Petworth House.

We encourage interested students and members of the public to attend – the public lecture at Petworth will be free to all.

Inarticulacy: An Interdisciplinary Early Modern Conference

University of California, Berkeley
November 12 - 13, 2011

When Cordelia responds to Lear with “Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave/My heart into my mouth” she both does and does not follow her own resolution to “Love, and be silent.” Like Hamlet before her, Cordelia has “that within which passeth show,” however, as a character on the stage, she is bound by literary convention to speak. Yet broader conventions, perhaps even necessity, compel human expression to manifest in human voice. As some philosophers have argued, to see and to be seen is not the only activity that provides the objective reality to subjective experience, but also to hear and to be heard. But what happens when words do not seem to suffice? And how can a scholarship dependent on reconstructed 'presence' interpret such absences, silences, and imprecisions in literary texts, the historical record, and visual media?

This conference concerns such moments at the intersection of speech, silence, and wordless expression, inviting papers of eight to ten pages (approximately 2,000 words) on the topic of inarticulacy in the Early Modern period. Aspects to consider include:

Gaps and silences in written records
The visual arts  
Translation and its attendant anxieties
Material historicism
Reading or staging silence
The role of material objects or landscape
Religious writing and the limits of human knowledge
Incorporating others’ words (intertextuality)
Quantification and taxonomy
Stage history
Protestant logocentrism and its discontents
The inexpressibility topos
Representations of grief and trauma
Censorship and surveillance
Unfinished works

Please submit paper titles and abstracts of no more than 250 words to by September 1, 2011. If you have any questions feel free to contact the conference organizers at the same address. We’ll look forward to reading your submissions!

Christopher Marlowe in Performance CFP

NeMLA, April 15 – 18, 2012.

This panel seeks to examine the stage history of Christopher Marlowe’s
works, considering the literature as the product of a theatre artist.
Papers will be asked to approach Marlowe'splays from a theatrical
standpoint, in order to discuss what we might learn from by examining
the force of performance as a
shaping factor in the reception of Marlowe’s small but vibrant body of work.
Papers that discuss cinematic treatments of the plays, as well as
of Marlowe’s place in Elizabethan stage history are also welcome. Please send
abstracts of 250 words to Louise Geddes at Deadline for
submissions is September30, 2011.

The 43rd annual convention will be held March 15-18th in Rochester,
New York at
the Hyatt Regency Hotel downtown, located minutes away from convenient
air, bus,
and train transportation options for attendees. St. John Fisher College will
serve as the host college, and the diverse array of area institutions are
coordinating with conference organizers to sponsor various activities, such as
celebrated keynote speakers, local events, and fiction readings.

Building upon the excellence of past NeMLA conferences, the
association continues to grow as a vibrant community of scholars,
thanks to the wide array of intellectual and cultural opportunities at
every venue. Compact yet diverse,
Rochester also boasts important historical connections; it is the site of the
home, publication operations, and orations of Frederick Douglass,
where he edited the North Star, as well as his eponymous periodical,
and delivered the speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”.
Visitors can explore the houses of abolitionist, suffragette, and
reformer Susan B. Anthony and the inventor of devices popularizing
photography, George Eastman, as well as shopping and eateries;
attendees will also be within reach of the beautiful Finger Lakes
region, known for its local wineries.
