Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society sponsored session at the International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, Michigan, May 8-11, 2014

“Medieval drama scholars are not new to the idea that reconstructive performance experiments yield valuable information about early dramatic texts. However, with the growing acceptance of practice- and performance-as-research in the wider academy, now is the perfect time to explore the theories and processes of this burgeoning field as it applies to early drama.

This session seeks invigorating explorations of the academic opportunities that performance holds. Moving beyond reconstruction, what and how do we learn in performance? What are the particular experiences of an event? How can accidental discoveries open new avenues of learning?

Papers on either process or performance, as well as discussions of either “drama” or “performative texts” are encouraged.

Please send 1 page abstracts to Carolyn Coulson at ”

Deadline: September 15, 2013.
