Ben Jonson in the 21st Century: Critical Approaches to the Jonsonian Masque: Special Session at RMMLA – Reno, NV, 10/08. The publication of the Cambridge Jonson still is impending, but excitement among early modern scholars continues unabated. Whether 2008 finally is the year of publication, Jonson studies continues to reenergize and to diversify in its momentum. The 2008 session aims to continue a vibrant conversation, reconsidering Jonson in the wake of 20th and 21st century scholarship, recognizing Jonson as a key figure for 21st century literary studies, and addressing the challenges Jonson offers to students.
