Description

Claire Sponsler examined the role of European medieval drama in the history of North America, making the case that drama carved out a space in which the practices of the Old World came into contact and communication with those of the New. Following Sponsler’s lead, this panel presentation invites scholarship that explores modern performance(s) of medieval drama. The panel will facilitate conversation exploring the ways in which performance creates a point of contact with the medieval world while utilizing affective means of engagement for 21st-century audiences.
