Description

This panel examines the intersection of the historical and dramatic during the Tudor and Stuart periods, drawing upon histories and legends rooted in medieval tradition. The session papers examine plays by William Shakespeare (1 Henry VI, Hamlet, Othello) and John Webster (The White Devil), drawing, as well, upon earlier and contemporary dramatic influences, social and legal debates, and contemporaneous understandings of desire and identity to discuss the ways in which the drama of the period sought to construct and reconstruct understandings of identity and selfhood relative to the past.
