Call for Papers

Seeking papers or panels on any aspect of early modern studies and literature for Shakespeare across the Divide, the first annual symposium at the landmark Betsy Hotel in South Beach, Florida.

Shakespeare across the Divide will explore Shakespeare across borders and demarcations, alongside his contemporaries as well as into new and current contexts. We also welcome work that explores beyond Shakespeare to develop the early modern period and studies. Especially welcome, given our location, will be work on the Spanish Golden Age, England and Spain in contact in the Caribbean, and interrogations of the early modern and the African Atlantic.

Submit 250 word abstracts by October 31, 2015. Submission form

If you have any questions, please contact Vernon Dickson at .
