Description

Conceived in conjunction with the Lydgate Society, this session contributes to a two-panel sequence celebrating the career of Claire Sponsler, whose work on medieval drama touched most strongly on the corporeality of dramatic performance, its connection with medieval culture writ large, and the ways that it touched both medieval and modern cultures. She also explored the complexities of “importing” medieval drama to the United States, as well as the pedagogical realities of editing and teaching medieval drama, remnants of medieval performance in visual archives, and non-textual performances.
