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.
