CFP: Performance Practice as Research

The Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society is proposing to host a session entitled ‘Performance Practice as Research’ and we are seeking proposals for 20-minute papers that ideally integrate our chosen topic with the conference theme "Climates." The conference will be held on 5-8 July 2021. Please see the Leeds 2021 conference website for further inspiration.
  • The deadline for abstract submissions is 20 September 2020 and should take the form of a 250-word paper proposal and a brief biography. Please submit your proposal to Dana Key (
  • There are also a few details to confirm along with your submission from the Guidelines for Session Proposals:
    • Firstly, please confirm that you can attend the conference. The conference organisers are not yet able to confirm whether this will be held live or on-line, so please confirm your flexibility in participating either way when you submit an abstract.
    • Secondly, please confirm that you have not submitted a paper for another session, and, finally, to acknowledge that you are aware of speakers needing to pay the Registration fee (information on bursaries can be found on the conference website).
Please do get in touch with any questions, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Many thanks, Dana L. Key
