Shakespeare and Anachronism. KiSSiT (Kingston Shakespeare Seminar in
Theory) one-day conference, Rose Theatre, Kingston, 18 February
2017. Speakers include: Professor Tiffany Stern, Dr Erik Roraback.
We look forward to paper proposals discussing
various aspects of Shakespearean drama, performance or theorisation,
characterised by anachronistic aspects such as:
Theorisation: Presentism vs ‘the
levers of form’ (Kiernan Ryan)
1. ‘The Globe phenomenon’: aspects
of anachronism of Elizabethan/Jacobean working theatre
reconstructions and their use – their cultural, institutional,
2. Theatre production: ‘updating’ vs
‘meshing’ of time periods (modernising today vs the Elizabethan use
of ‘modern dress’); costume, set and possible
3. Thematic: purposeful anachronism as
creative tool of playwrights’ composition
4. Methodologies of reflection and analysis:
ad hoc vs post hoc – practice-as-research in performance (PaR) vs
discursive forms of criticism
5. The relationship of the plays to their
historical time as e.g. political interventions/anachronistic
theatricalisation of politics and culture in Early Modern times
(such as HenryVIII’s jousting)
