Subject:    Romeo and Juliet in Harlem . . . 

 

My name is Aleta Chappelle and I wrote the screenplay adaptation and I’m the director of ROMEO AND JULIET IN HARLEM. The film has been accepted at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival and it will screen Wednesday, July 16th at 7PM.

 

We would love to get the word out to the Shakespeare community, not only because we’d love to have them come to the screening but also we’d love them to follow our progress on Facebook.

 

Here’s our Facebook page;

I know it’s short notice but I hope you can help us. This is a unique production with a total cast of color and our goal it to keep Shakespeare’s works alive as we perform his text in a modern day urban setting.

 

Please contact me if you have questions or need more information.

 

Thank you,

Aleta

 
 
Shakespeare Digital Challenge

From Alexa Huang, Chair of the MLA Committee on the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare 

 

Announcement

 

The New Variorum Shakespeare Digital Challenge: The Second Round

 

The MLA Committee on the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare (NVS) is sponsoring its second digital challenge to find the most innovative and compelling uses of the data contained in one of the NVS editions. This year the MLA is making available the XML files and schema for two volumes, The Winter’s Tale and The Comedy of Errors, under a Creative Commons BY-NC 3.0 license.

 

Scholars can freely download the XML files and schema from GitHub: https://github.com/mlaa/nvs-challenge.

 

The committee seeks entries featuring new means of displaying, representing, and exploring this data in the most exciting API, interface, visualization, or data-mining project. It is especially interested in entries that combine the NVS data with another Shakespearian project, such as Folger Digital Texts, Internet Shakespeare Editions, or Open Source Shakespeare. The goal is to see the possibilities of the NVS in digital form and, in particular, the innovations in scholarly research that might be enabled by opening up the NVS’s code. Projects will thus be judged both on the quality of the interface they provide for the NVS and on the insights produced by the mash-up.

 

The deadline for entries is 1 September 2014. The committee will assess the submissions and select the winner no later than 1 October 2014. The prize of $500 and an award certificate will be given at the 2015 MLA convention in Vancouver.

BSA: Elections to the Board of Trustees

The Shakespeare Conference: SHK 25.296  Wednesday, 2 July 2014

 

From:        BSA < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it >

Date:         July 1, 2014 at 10:47:54 AM EDT

Subject:    Elections to the Board of Trustees

 

British Shakespeare Association


Every three years, we invite members of the British Shakespeare Association to stand for election to the Board of Trustees. There are 6 elected members of the Board and they play a very important role in guiding the work of the BSA and ensuring that the organisation is soundly managed and keeps true to the values and charitable objects in our constitution. We welcome applications from a broad range of candidates.

 

As a Trustee, you will also be a company director (as the BSA is a charitable company) and you will have a number of legal responsibilities as set out by the Charity Commission and the BSA’s articles of association. There is no pay for Trustees but reasonable expenses will be met. We meet three times a year (usually in Stratford-upon-Avon) and at the Annual General Meeting. However, most of the real discussions take place online before meetings. The term of office is three years, after which you will have the option of standing for a further three years.

 

To apply, please complete the attached form (if you've not been able to download it please email me directly at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and return electronically to the address on the form by the 8th September 2014. Only electronic copies will be accepted. The form will then be vetted by a Nominations Committee to make sure that your application is valid. Once we have all applications in they will be put out to the full membership for election with a view to confirming the membership of the new Board at our November/December AGM. The first meeting of the new Board will take place in January 2015 with further meetings in May and September.

 

This is an opportunity to help shape the next three years of the BSA. I very much hope you will consider standing. If you are at the conference this weekend, I will be very happy to discuss this opportunity with you, as will all of the current Trustees who will be there. We are also holding a special ‘meet the Board’ session at the conference—see the programme for details. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

The position of Web Officer will be advertised separately.

 

best wishes

Stuart Hampton-Reeves

Chair of the Board of Trustees

International Shakespeare Association 

10th World Shakespeare Congress 2016: 

Creating and Re-creating Shakespeare 

31 July to 6 August, 2016 

London and Stratford-upon-Avon 

 

The year 2016 marks four hundred years of popular, artistic, and scholarly enthusiasm for Shakespeare’s life and works. We justly celebrate Shakespeare as a creator of plays and poems, characters and ideas, words and worlds. But so too, in the centuries since the playwright’s death in 1616, have scholars and thinkers, writers, artists, and performers—of all kinds and from around the globe—re-created him. In such perpetual reinventions of Shakespeare we seem to have confirmation of Ben Jonson’s words: Shakespeare was “not of an age, but for all time”. 

 

The Tenth World Shakespeare Congress of the International Shakespeare Association will honour Shakespeare’s 400-year legacy and celebrate the continuing global resonance of his work. The Congress’s rich programme of plenary lectures, seminars, panels, workshops, events, and performances will take place across two successive locations: first in Stratford-upon-Avon, among the key sites of Shakespeare’s personal life; and subsequently in London, close to the site of his most famous workplace, the Globe theatre. WSC 2016 will offer unparalleled opportunities to engage with current Shakespeare performance, criticism, and pedagogy, and to connect with fellow Shakespeareans from around the world. 

 

The Congress organisers welcome proposals for papers, panels, workshops, and other events (including performances and other creative responses) relating to any aspect of Shakespeare’s work, life, and continuing legacy. 

 

Proposals of 500 words for seminars, panels, and workshops may be submitted to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  

 

Workshops and seminars should be co-hosted with at least one other delegate. The Congress is an international event, and, as such, potential co-hosts are strongly encouraged to collaborate with delegates from other countries or geographical regions. Proposers will understand that there will be more space for seminars than panels on the conference programme. 

 

Deadline for submissions: 30 September 2014 

 

Those submitting proposals should ensure that their membership of the ISA is current. 

 

Financial donations to the World Shakespeare Congress are greatly appreciated. All such donations will be used to provide grant subsidies for early-career scholars and delegates from countries with less competitive economies. For further information please write to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it \

 

We look forward to welcoming delegates and their families and friends in the summer of 2016.

British Shakespeare Association

 

You are warmly invited to an event designed for all of those interested in Shakespeare and education: teachers at all levels, students, alumni and practitioners.


There will be a free to attend symposium on 25 June 2014 titled “Shakespeare in Education: Innovating and Collaborating in the Age of Digital Humanities.” The event is organised by students of the University of York and the Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham. It follows on from the 2013 symposium (www.facebook.com/events/190164174477208/). It will be held from 10am-5pm at the University of Birmingham main campus in Edgbaston, bringing together both new and expert researchers at an emerging hub of scholarship in Shakespeare and education. Together with disseminating, sharing, and discussing a range of teaching methods and approaches, we will have visiting speakers and experts to discuss topics at the forefront of the field, ranging from using digital Shakespeare resources to active teaching approaches.

 

Speakers include: Dr. Sarah Olive, University of York & Chair of the BSA education committee; Dr. Erin Sullivan, Shakespeare Institute; Dr. Catherine Alexander, Shakespeare Institute; Anthony Banks, Associate Director at National Theatre Learning; and co-organisers Laura Nicklin, University of York, and Thea Buckley, Shakespeare Institute. Registration will open at 9:40 and the day will begin at 10:00 and will progress through a series of panels including lectures, roundtable discussions and active workshops on the topic of teaching Shakespeare. The day will finish at 17:00 with an opportunity for networking and further discussion over coffee and cake.
This student-led symposium aims to build on the knowledge base of current approaches to teaching Shakespeare, by situating it in the latest scholarly conversation through sharing insights gained through the organisers’ wider experience in participating at international Shakespeare conferences. These include the Worlds Together Conference on Shakespeare in education, 2012, London, UK, and the Folger Shakespeare Library educational workshops, 2013 and 2014, Shakespeare Association of America (SAA) Conference, St. Louis, USA. The event is generously funded by BSA Education and the University of Birmingham’s PGR Development Fund, with CLAD support. 


A light lunch will be provided for all attending. We are also a short walk from the nearby University of Birmingham railway station. There is good connectivity by bus or train from Birmingham city centre, as well as onsite pay and display parking. For more information please visit our facebook page event:
