How are bodies represented in Shakespeare's plays? What kinds of bodies are there? What is the status of bodily pleasures within the plays? How does the state control various bodies? In what ways is the state imagined as a body? Are there any connections between the body of the state and the state of the body? Join us in answering these questions during Body Politics: The Body and The State in Shakespeare, a Student Conference held March 14-15, 2003, on the campus of Susquehanna University in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. We are particularly interested in the examinations of bodies and politics through the perspectives of gender, race, sexuality, and class.
Please submit a 1-2 page abstract or a complete paper to participate in the conference. Abstracts of papers must be typed and should clearly indicate the thesis of the paper. Papers should be about eight to ten pages long, typed, and double-spaced (reading time between fifteen and twenty minutes). All submissions must include the following information: title of paper, author's name, complete contact information, including telephone number, e-mail address, and fax number if available; institutional affiliation; need for audio-visual equipment. Abstracts or completed papers MUST be submitted by December 10, 2002. E-mail submissions are encouraged.
