Call for Papers: ‘Genre in the Renaissance’

October 8, 2011

Northern Renaissance Seminar

University of Chester

17th March 2012

Proposals for papers are invited on any aspect of the ways in which literary/poetic/dramatic genres function in the Renaissance. This seminar endeavours to expose some of the ways in which genres are employed, manipulated, or resisted in Renaissance literature, poetry and drama.

 

Topics may include, but are certainly not restricted to:

 

 The emergence and evolution of genres in relation to Renaissance culture;

 The tensions or compliance of literary/dramatic works with genre theory;

 How social discourses shape categories and classifications of literary production;

 How and why do literary works resist or subvert generic classifications;

 How dramatic formulations contribute to the synergy between genre and culture;

 The use of genre as an ideological construct;

 How genre interacts with other driving forces in the literary/poetic/dramatic work.

 

Comparative, interdisciplinary, and performance-oriented approaches are welcome. We invite proposals (250 words) for papers addressing these questions, and considering the use or subversions of genre and generic readings in the Renaissance. Please send your proposals or any queries to Anna Mackenzie: a.mackenzie@chester.ac.uk.

 

Deadline for proposals: 31st December 2011.​
