Subject:    CFP 'Reforming Shakespeare: 1593 and After'

 

SHAKSPERians with access to the city of Leicester, England, may be interested in the following Call for Papers:

 

What: 'Reforming Shakespeare: 1593 and After'

 

When: 3 June 2014

 

Where: De Montfort University, Leicester, England

 

Why: This is a one-day scholarly symposium on the kinds of alteration that have occurred to Shakespeare's writing as it has made its journey from author to readers and playgoers. 'Reforming' may take the sense of being given new shape as authorial or non-authorial adaptation, rewriting, borrowing or allusion and arguments about any of these processes in connection with Shakespeare fall within our purview. 'Reforming' can also suggest correction and improvement, including censorship, editing, and tidying up of text to make it conform to new conditions of reception, and contributions on those topics are also welcome. Send proposals for 15-minute papers to Prof Deborah Cartmell <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.> and Prof Gabriel Egan <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

 

Who: Prof Graham Holderness (University of Hertfordshire) and Prof Richard Wilson (Kingston University) are confirmed keynote speakers. The rest will chosen from submitted proposals.

 

Flyer: Please download from http://cts.dmu.ac.uk/news/flyer.pdf and distribute wherever interested parties may be found.

Gabriel Egan
