Proposals are invited for papers to be delivered at the first North West Renaissance Drama Colloquium. The event will bring together researchers and students from all institutions and at all career stages for a day of papers and discussion. A short list of plays being spoken on will be circulated in advance of the event and all delegates will be encouraged to come prepared to share ideas on interpretation and teaching. The venue in Manchester is to be confirmed.
A keynote lecture will be given by Professor Nicholas Royle (Sussex), author of The Uncanny, How to Read Shakespeare, After Derrida and a novel, Quilt.
To express interest in attendance or to propose a 20 minute paper on any aspect of Renaissance or Restoration drama (preferably focussing on a single play), please email a 300 word abstract by 08.04.11 to Naya Tsentourou and James Smith at:
