The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 26.040 Monday, 2 February 2015
Date: Friday, January 30, 2015 at 1:22 PM
Subject: Registration for Making Links Conference Now Open
Registration is now open for the conference, ”Making Links,” at the University of Victoria on 7th-8th April, following the SAA meeting in Vancouver:
The cost of registration is CAD55 before 1 March, CAD75 thereafter. Lunch for both days is included in the registration fee.
The conference venue is on the campus at the University of Victoria; the conference hotel is the Laurel Point Inn right on Victoria’s inner harbor and a short walk from downtown. Transportation will be provided from the hotel to the University. The section of the website that offers advice on accommodation and travel has a link to the hotel, where you can book at the conference rate of CAD99.00 per night. This rate will apply both before and after the conference if you have time to make a holiday of your trip. You will also find information about traveling from Vancouver to Victoria in the section of the site on accommodation.
As you will see from the program the conference features a range of papers looking at the opportunities presented by the digital medium in developing and publishing editions of Early Modern drama. Our plenary speaker will be James Mardock, whose paper is titled "Cyborgs are the New Codex: Reading Machines and the Editing of Early Modern Texts.”
The afternoons will each offer a choice between two workshops, one targeted at those working with texts specifically being created for the ISE (and its sibling sites, the Queen’s Men Editions and Digital Renaissance Editions), the other at more general issues in the creation of digital editions. When you register, you will have an opportunity to sign up for the workshops that interest you — it would be wise to make your choice early.
The conference banquet will be held at Il Covo, a short walk from the hotel, and will cost CAD55 per person. You can sign up for the banquet (and include a guest) when you register.
We very much look forward to seeing you in Victoria.
All good wishes,
