Description

This panel in interested in the ways medieval drama helps us think about temporalities within its own period and across others. How does medieval drama incorporate contemporary political, social, spiritual, and gendered concerns within or through temporal disruptions or cross-temporal dynamics? Papers might explore these questions through audience orientations to temporalities, temporalities within dramatic texts, and performance contexts and interactions. Papers might also trouble distinctions between drama in the medieval and early modern, interrogating how temporal relations within and among these literary and historical periods helps us understand them together.
