This panel will explore controversies and conflicts over the values of remembering and forgetting in Shakespeare’s plays. Topics to be addressed by the panel might include, though are not limited to, the relation of memory and oblivion to individual identity, to the identity of a nation, to the ongoing Reformation, to efforts to suspend or displace confessional conflict, and to the conditions of performance. Please send 250-word proposals to Jonathan Baldo, the Eastman School of Music of the University of Rochester,
