The Society for Renaissance Studies is delighted to announce its NEW monograph series. The series is dedicated to the exploration of the many cultures of knowledge, learning, reading and performing in the Renaissance and Early Modern world (c.1400-c.1700).
We are seeking essay proposals for an edited volume focused on queens and queenship in the plays of William Shakespeare. Although there have been many individual studies of how queens in early modern drama reflect and refract the image of Elizabeth I, this volume will primarily concern queens as characters and as theatrical constructs. The collection will be submitted to the “Queenship and Power” series (Palgrave Macmillan) edited by Charles Beem and Carole Levin, with planned publication for late 2017/early 2018.
April 2016 will mark the fifth centenary of the publication of Ariosto’s Orlando furioso, a seminal work of European literature. To mark this centenary and to draw attention to the continuing presence of the Orlando Furioso in English culture from the 16th century to the present, a conference will be held at the British Academy in London on April 28th and 29th 2016.
