A Research Seminar for Dissertation-Stage PhD Students and Junior Faculty sponsored by The Making Publics Project (MaPs) at McGill University
Leaders: Steven Mullaney (Michigan) and Paul Yachnin (McGill)
May 14-June 9, 2008
Seminar Location: Victoria University of the University of Toronto
How did the shift from earlier forms of theatre, such as Corpus Christi cycles or moralities and interludes, to sixteenth- and seventeenth-century forms, such as the amphitheatre drama of Reformation London or the corrales drama of Golden Age Spain, alter the ways in which individual and collective identities were modeled?
As many as 12 Canadian and non-Canadian dissertation-stage students and junior faculty from across the humanities and social sciences will be invited to take part. This month-long interdisciplinary seminar will bring together scholars interested in the relationship among forms of performance, the formation of “publics,” and the development of public life. The travel and living expenses of the participants in the seminar will be covered by the MaPs project.
Participants in the seminar will have access to the rich resources of the University of Toronto’s John P. Robarts Research Library and Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, as well as the specialist collection of the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies and the Records of Early English Drama at Victoria University in the University of Toronto.
Further information and application instructions can be obtained from the MaPs Project website – http://makingpublics.mcgill.ca. Application Deadline Extended: December 1, 2007.
