Also welcome are papers that consider how we discuss and/or construct resistance in our classrooms.

Lord Denney's Players: Current OSU undergraduates are invited to submit proposals for Lord Denney’s Players’ fifth production, set to be performed in Spring 2019 (exact dates TBD by theatre availability). The winning proposal will articulate a team vision for a production that continues the LDP tradition of using theatre as a lab space for a diverse group of students to explore intersections of texts, literary criticism, and performance.

CFP: Texts and Contexts ( Ohio State University, Columbus, OH)

(October 26-27, 2018)
Deadline: TBA

Texts and Contexts is an annual conference held on the campus of the Ohio State University devoted to Medieval and Renaissance manuscripts, incunables and early printed texts in Latin and the vernacular languages. The conference solicits papers particularly in the general discipline of manuscript studies, including palaeography, codicology, reception and text history. In addition to the general papers (of roughly 20 minutes), the conference also hosts the Virginia Brown Memorial Lecture, established in memory of the late Virginia Brown, who taught paleography at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies for some 40 years.  We also welcome proposals for sessions of two to three papers which might treat a more focused topic. Please send abstracts to  Deadline for abstracts: TBA.
