The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 23.0529 Monday, 24 December 2012
Date: December 22, 2012 7:19:22 AM EST
Subject: BSA Honorary Fellows 2013
At its recent meeting of the Board of Trustees the BSA, and on the recommendation of the Honorary Fellowship Committee, it was unanimously decided to appoint two Honorary Fellowships for 2013.
Members of the British Shakespeare Association will be delighted to learn that the two Honorary Fellows for 2013 will be Professor Terence Hawkes and Professor Stanley Wells, both of whom have graciously accepted the invitations issued by the Honorary Fellowship Committee of the BSA.
Professors Hawkes and Wells have led the field of Shakespeare Studies over the past 50 years, and both continue to contribute to its advancement. They were also instrumental in the setting up of the BSA. An event to celebrate their installation as Honorary Fellows will take place in Stratford at some time during 2013, and members will be notified once arrangements are in place. This will be the first event of its kind in the history of the BSA, and will set a precedent for the award of Honorary Fellowships in those interstitial years when the biennial Conference does not take place.
