CFP: Teaching Renaissance Drama in a Digital World

Posted By Rachel E. Wifall, Saturday, May 23, 2020
Updated: Saturday, May 23, 2020

Deadline: 15 July 2020

The study of Renaissance drama can be difficult for students at all levels, as they need to become comfortable with unfamiliar language composed in verse, as well as come to understand action largely without stage directions. While learning about Renaissance drama in a classroom or on a stage is challenging enough, the necessity for remote learning has posed new challenges for instructors and students. While the digital era has introduced us to tools which can be useful for the study of Renaissance drama, the COVID19 pandemic has forced us to become creative and utilize them. Papers are welcome which consider any aspect of teaching Renaissance drama in the digital age (not confined to English), whether as literature or performance, including acting and stagecraft. 

Proposals should include an abstract (no longer than 150 words) and an academic c.v., emailed to Rachel Wifall ( by 15 July 2020.

Call for Papers: Sidney Circle at RSA Dublin 2021

Posted By The International Sidney Association, Tuesday, May 19, 2020

Deadline: 1 August 2020

The International Sidney Association plans to sponsor four new sessions at the 66th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America in Dublin. We invite papers on any and all topics related to Philip Sidney, Mary Sidney Herbert, Lady Mary Wroth, the Sidney Family or the Sidney Circle generally. That Circle is conceived broadly, and hence we would welcome papers not only about Fulke Greville, Samuel Daniel, and William Herbert, but also papers about Giordano Bruno, Veronica Franco, Philippe Duplessis-Mornay, Justus Lipsius, and any number of figures in the Circle’s large cosmopolitan network.

We would be particularly happy to receive paper proposals on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • The Sidneys in Ireland
  • Women Writers of the Sidney Circle
  • Politics, History, Religion in the Sidney Circle
  • Philip Sidney and the Early Moderns Post-1586 (Sidney and Shakespeare, or Sidney and Spenser, or Herbert or Donne or Daniel or Drayton, etc.)

Proposals should include an abstract (no longer than 150 words), a brief academic C.V. (not longer than 300 words). Indicate too whether you will require A.V. equipment for the presentation. Please email your proposals to Rob Stillman ( by 1 August 2020.

PS—In addition, the International Sidney Association plans to offer several more panels originally planned for RSA 2020 in Philadelphia. Participants on those panels should contact me for more information.
