Late Tudor and Stuart Drama: Gender, Performance, and Material Culture

Call for proposals, for a new series from Medieval Institute Publications:

 

Series Editors:

Cristina León Alfar, Hunter College, CUNY, Helen Ostovich, McMaster University

 

This series provides a forum for monographs and essay collections that investigate the material culture, broadly conceived, of theatre and performance in England from the late Tudor to the pre-Restoration Stuart periods (c. 1550–1650).  The editors invite proposals for book-length studies engaging in the material vitality of the dramatic text, political culture, theatre and performance history, theatrical design, performance spaces, gendering court entertainments, child- and adult-actors, music, dance, and audiences in London and on tour. We are also interested in the discursive production of gender, sex, and race in early modern England in relation to material historical, social, cultural, and political structures; changes to and effects of law; monarchy and the republic in dramatic texts; theatre and performance, including performance spaces that are not in theatres.  Further topics might include the production and consumption of things and ideas; costumes, props, theatre records and accounts, gendering of spaces and geographies (court, tavern, street, and household, rural or urban), cross-dressing, military or naval excursions, gendered pastimes, games, behaviours, rituals, fashions, and encounters with the exotic, the non-European, the disabled, and the demonic and their reflection in text and performance.

New Book Series: Gendering the Late Medieval and Early Modern World

Call for proposals, for a new series from Amsterdam University Press 

 

Series Editors:

James Daybell (Chair), Plymouth University; Victoria Burke, University of Ottawa; Svante Norrhem, Lund University; Merry Wiesner-Hanks, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

 

This series provides a forum for studies that investigate the themes of women and gender in the late medieval and early modern world.  The editors invite proposals for book-length studies of an interdisciplinary nature, including but not exclusively, from the fields of history, literature, art and architectural history, and visual and material culture.  Consideration will be given to both monographs and collections of essays. Chronologically, we welcome studies that look at the period between 1400 and 1700, with a focus on Britain, Europe and Global transnational histories. We invite proposals including, but not limited to, the following broad themes: methodologies, theories and meanings of gender; gender, power and political culture; monarchs, courts and power; construction of femininity and masculinities; gift-giving, diplomacy and the politics of exchange; gender and the politics of early modern archives and architectural spaces (court, salons, household); consumption and material culture; objects and gendered power; women’s writing; gendered patronage and power; gendered activities, behaviours, rituals and fashions.

New Book Series: Renaissance History, Art and Culture

Call for proposals, for a new series from Amsterdam University Press

Series Editors:

Christopher Celenza, Johns Hopkins University, USA Samuel Cohn, Jr.,  University of Glasgow, UK Andrea Gamberini, University of Milan, Italy Geraldine Johnson, University of Oxford, UK Isabella Lazzarini, University of Molise, Italy

 

This series investigates the Renaissance as a complex intersection of political and cultural processes that radiated across Italian territories into wider worlds of influence, not only throughout Western Europe, but into Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the Indian subcontinent and the Americas. It is alive to the best writing of a transnational and comparative nature and crosses canonical chronological divides. The intent of the series is to spark new ideas and encourage debate on the meanings, extent and influence of the Renaissance within Europe, broadly defined, and the wider world.  It encourages engagement by scholars across disciplines -- history, literature, art history, musicology, and even the social sciences -- and focuses on ideas and collective mentalities as social, political, and cultural movements that shaped a changing world from ca 1250 to 1650.
