Possible topics may include (but are not limited to): The future trajectory of a specific theoretical lens’s role in Shakespeare studies. A theoretical lens’s relationship to a common goal such as antiracist Shakespeare pedagogy or decolonizing Shakespeare performance. A theoretical lens’s relationship to an emerging trend in Shakespeare studies. The significance of a theoretical lens for a yet-to-be-addressed area of inquiry (or vice-versa). “Theoretical lens” is here used broadly, to gesture towards particular ways of approaching, framing, and understanding topics. Proposals should be approximately 150 words in length and submitted, via the SAA’s online form (link below), no later than 11:59 PM CST on Monday, December 12, 2022.
