The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society (MRDS) is extending its tailored “New Voices in Medieval Drama” strand to the Leeds International Medieval Congress next year (2024). MRDS continues its annual tradition of inviting all scholars new to the field of early drama studies—especially graduate students, recent PhDs, and early career researchers (within four years of receiving the degree)—to submit their work to the panel. The panel will consist of four papers and commentary from a respondent.
MRDS welcomes all approaches to early drama studies for this open-topic session. Proposed papers do not have to speak to the Congress’s proposed topic of “crisis,” however, papers related to this general topic will be especially welcome.
