Medieval English Theatre Society Annual Meeting, University of Glasgow, 25th March 2017
The 2017 meeting honours Philip Butterworth, recently retired from Leeds University, and formerly of Bretton Hall College. Philip has been a loyal contributor to Medieval English Theatre, and was one of those present at the first meeting in Lancaster in 1978. His numerous influential publications on the performance of early drama, as well as his many productions, suggest that the time is right to celebrate that contribution.
The topic for the meeting is Cultures of Performance and we invite proposals for 20 minute papers on topics including (but not limited to):
- Changing conceptions of dramatic genre
- Para-theatrical traditions
- Performance and performers – acting and actors
- Staging and stage spaces
- Spectacle and stage-effects
- Voice and speech
- Modern performance of early dramatic texts and shows
- Preparation and rehearsal
Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to Pamela King (Pamela.King@glasgow.ac.uk) by Wednesday 14 December 2016.
