May 25, 2010
I've just had a paper accepted for a conference entitled Early Modern Exclusions, to be held at the University of Portsmouth in September, which I'm already very much looking forward to. The paper is to be called
"A Prince and His Play in Exile: The Excluding Practices of the 1610 Additions to Mucedorus."
This is a paper I'm excited to write, as not only does it come directly out of bits of my thesis that I've already written (as opposed to other conferences, where I seem to end up writing papers based on chapters that I haven't yet begun), but it'll allow me to give a reading of the play itself, as well as the paratextual materials and bibliographic practices which I usually talk about.
It's also the first non-graduate student conference at which I'll be presenting on my apocryphal research. I've given apocrypha papers to a number of grad conferences, and talks on reviewing/performance/pedagogy to larger conferences, but this'll be a great opportunity for me to bring my PhD study to a wider audience of early modern academics.
