The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society seeks three 20-minute presentations on
any aspect of medieval and early modern Dutch and Flemish drama for a session at the 2017
International Medieval Congress at Leeds.
We particularly encourage papers that focus on the 2017 IMC conference theme of
otherness. The Low Countries seems a particularly fruitful area of focus for this theme, as they
spent much of the Middle Ages as perpetual “others” with fluid boundaries and constant
changing of hands. Possible topics to consider include (but are not limited to) Dutch biblical
drama; the abele spelen and their accompanying farces; the drama of the Chambers of Rhetoric;
humanist and Lutheran influences on drama; French-language plays from the Low Countries;
cultural exchange with England and France; processions and festivals; and the use of drama and
performance as religious and social criticism.
We invite submissions in any language, but ask potential presenters to keep in mind that
English is likely to be the most accessible language for the bulk of our audience.
