“O, let me see thee walk”: A roundtable on early modern embodiment and mobilities
Uploaded: 16th June 2022
What methodologies can be used to examine mobility and embodiment in early modern theatre? How can intellectual, biological, or cultural contexts help us to understand what is happening on the stage? And what can practices beyond the theatre – in relation to the playhouse’s immediate environs, for instance, or other types of activities or performance – tell us about early modern mobilities or processes of embodiment more widely? This roundtable discussion brings together international early modern drama experts to share their newest research on this theme, with the aim of sharing cross-disciplinary perspective and shaping some important questions for the field.
In addition to the recording of the event below, Susan Anderson has provided written notes for her opening remarks.
