WOODEN O SYMPOSIUM
Southern Utah University - Utah Shakespeare Festival
August 8-10, 2011
Conference Priorities - The Wooden O Symposium invites papers and sessions on any topic related to Shakespeare and early modern drama but gives priority to those relating to the Utah Shakespeare Festival's 2011 summer season: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Richard III and Romeo and Juliet. Also, in celebration of their 50th anniversary the Utah Shakespeare Festival, in cooperation with Southern Utah University Sherratt Library, will be hosting an exhibit featuring a First Folio and other original Shakespeare texts on loan from the Folger Library. In recognition of this singular event the Symposium is also encouraging authors to submit papers on subjects related to early Shakespeare texts. In support of SUU's mission to promote undergraduate research, the Wooden O Symposium regularly includes at least one undergraduate panel as part of the program
Scholars attending the conference will have the unique opportunity of immersing themselves in research, text, and performance in one of the most beautiful natural settings in the western U.S.
Selected papers from the symposium are published in the peer-reviewed Journal of the Wooden O Symposium.
