full name / name of organization: Midwest Modern Language Association

In keeping with the conference theme “Health in/of the Humanities” the permanent session of the Shakespeare and Shakespearean Criticism panel is soliciting presentations that address illness and health in the work, criticism, or teaching of Shakespeare. The panel welcomes papers that approach illness and health expansively, including mental health, the body politic, and the place of Shakespeare (without presupposing there is one) in the health of the humanities.

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and brief bio or c.v. to Jeanette Goddard at goddardj@trine.edu by April 15.

The MMLA conference will be held in Chicago, IL November 14-16, 2024.
