CFP Shakespearean Moments Panel

April 28, 2010

Johann Gregory (Cardiff University) has submitted a CFP for a panel entitled:

Shakespearean Moments: “expectation whirls me round”

The panel will hopefully take place at The Renaissance Society of America conference in 2011 in Montreal.

For more information click here.

To consider Hamlet’s “To be, or not to be” speech an audience must think about what the future might have in store. Like many other Shakespearean moments, Hamlet reflects on past experience and ponders what’s to come while seeming to be stuck in a moment.

Besides the character’s expectations, however, the playwright may have had certain expectations of his players and the audience. Similarly, the audience may have expected something from the title of the play, the place where it was being performed, or which company was performing it, for example.

From a publishing point of view, the title pages, author and even printer may have created expectations, too, for a reading audience.

Shakespearean Moments, therefore, include the expectations of authors, actors, theatregoers, readers, editors, critics and publishers.

Please submit proposals to Johann Gregory at gregoryj@cardiff.ac.uk by Tuesday 18th May 2010 with:

Title and abstract (150 words)
