British Graduate Shakespeare Conference
Sixteenth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference
5th – 7th June 2014
The Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham
We invite Graduate students with interests in Shakespeare and Renaissance Studies to join us in June for the Sixteenth Annual British Graduate Shakespeare Conference.
This interdisciplinary conference, celebrating its sixteenth anniversary in 2014, provides a friendly and stimulating academic forum in which Graduate students from all over the world can present their research and meet together in an active centre of Shakespeare scholarship in Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Undergraduate students in their final two years of study are also invited to attend the conference as auditors.
The conference will feature talks by David Crystal (University of Wales, Bangor), Richard Buckley (University of Leicester Archaeological Services), Ewan Fernie (Shakespeare Institute), Tony Howard (University of Warwick), Grace Ioppolo (University of Reading), Simon Palfrey (University of Oxford), and Anna Marsland from the RSC. A round table discussion about Shakespeare’s collaborative plays will be led by Peter Kirwan (University of Nottingham) and Will Sharpe (University of Birmingham).
Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend two RSC productions: Henry IV Part II, directed by Gregory Doran, and starring Antony Sher as Falstaff, and The Roaring Girl, part of the Roaring Girls season, both at a group-booking price. Lunch will be provided on each day, and we will be hosting a party and a reception for the delegates.
The deadline for registering as auditors is Friday 23rd May 2014. You can still make a payment after this date, as late as on the door upon arrival at the Shakespeare Institute BUT any kind of transaction carried out after 23 MAY will be automatically qualified as Late Fee and no concessions apply.
