ABOUT

 

A warm welcome to the website of Shakespeare Magazine!

 

As you’d expect from the name, it’s a magazine dedicated to exploring and celebrating the life and works of William Shakespeare.

 

We launched our first issue on 23 April 2014, as the world celebrated 450 years since the birth of the Bard.

 

We’ve quickly found readers in all corners of the globe, and it’s clear that Shakespeare Magazine is a truly international publication.

 

Shakespeare is England’s greatest gift to the world, so Shakespeare Magazine is completely free to anyone and everyone, no matter who you are or where you are.

 

The Shakespeare Magazine website is a place where you can read the latest issue of the magazine and peruse the latest Shakespeare News.

 

You can also follow our Twitter feed (with other social media channels coming soon). And we’ll be posting Shakespeare features, offers and competitions that won’t be available elsewhere.

 

Shakespeare Magazine aims to give a new voice to Shakespeare fans everywhere. I hope you’ll visit us often.

 

Enjoy your magazine and website.

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:

CFP: Unexpected affect in Shakespearean Drama, NeMLA 2015

Date:         June 10, 2014 at 9:41:28 AM EDT

Subject:    CFP: Unexpected affect in Shakespearean Drama, NeMLA 2015

 

Unexpected affect in Shakespearean Drama

 

This panel will explore the ways in which Shakespearean drama delivers emotional intensity (passions, affectations, embodiment, etc.) in unexpected places. When might certain emotional reactions be surprising in Shakespeare’s plays? Are there particular characters that share their feelings unexpectedly, yet with astonishing resonance?

 

The significance of this session is to explore whether, after four centuries of exposure, these can still be capable of emotionally shocking. In today’s academic climate, do Shakespeare’s words have the potential to be so emotionally disturbing that students might/can/should expect a “trigger warning” on syllabi?

This panel will explore unexpected representations of affect in Shakespeare’s works, including:

 

-       affect in the comedies, including “comedies of humour”

-       affect in unnamed characters

-       affect in allusions

-       affect through wordplay (punning, homonyms, and so forth)

-       affect in prologues or epilogues

-       affect as communicated by servants or children

-       reviews of unexpectedly affective productions of Shakespeare on stage and screen

-       exploring Shakespearean emotions in the classroom and online

 

NeMLA 2015 will be taking place in Toronto, Canada, April 30-May 3, 2015. This year, applicants will be submitting their abstracts directly to the NeMLA site (https://nemla.org/convention/2015/cfp.html#cfp15046), so please allow time to familiarize yourself with the new format. Please submit abstracts for 20-minute presentations by September 15, 2014. Email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Call for Papers

Bakhtin and Shakespeare: New Directions

Northeast Modern Language Association, Toronto ON (April 30 - May 3, 2015)

 

Since his death in 1975, the work of Russian literary theorist and cultural philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin has continued to influence a wide range of disciplines, from novel and film studies to geography and sociology; from linguistics and psychology to art history and biblical hermeneutics. It is not surprising that this advocate of multiplicity should provoke interdisciplinary extensions and revisions of his work. In notes about the state of literary scholarship published before his death, Bakhtin wrote about “immense treasures of potential meaning” that have yet to be discovered in Shakespeare’s works. The decades that followed saw a flurry of scholarly engagements with Bakhtinian concepts and the plays (e.g., Michael D. Bristol on carnival, James R. Siemon on dialogism). But what is the current state of Bakhtin in Shakespeare studies? What new directions might his writings enable in the study of Shakespeare? What might a “second wave” of Bakhtinian Shakespeare criticism produce? This panel invites original papers examining new directions for Bakhtin and Shakespeare. Papers may address methodological or theoretical issues, engage in meta-critical surveys of current scholarship, or propose new applications of Bakhtinian concepts to the poems or plays.

 

Paper proposals must be submitted directly through the NEMLA Website. Go to:

Call for Papers

Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference

October 17 and 18

Kelowna, British Columbia

 

This is the second version of this call for papers. Please note the new conference dates, and new deadline for proposals.

 

The next meeting of the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Conference will take place on October 17 and 18 in Kelowna, a resort town at the centre of British Columbia’s wine country. 

 

The theme of this year’s conference is “The Global Renaissance.” George Saliba, of Columbia University, and Lesley Cormack, of the University of Alberta, will provide keynote addresses.

 

While the Renaissance is usually considered a European event, neither its sources nor its influence are confined to western Europe. We therefore seek to work actively with scholars of both European and transatlantic culture and society from 1300-1700, including art historians, economists, historians, scholars of religion, theatre historians and practitioners, scholars in the history of science and medicine, political scientists, and comparativists. The theme should be understood broadly, but we particularly welcome papers on exploration narratives, geographical knowledge, and contact and influence between cultures and languages. Papers are usually presented in English, but may concern the literature, history or culture of any language.

 

The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society (PNRS) promotes scholarship in Early Modern Studies by hosting an annual conference, held alternately in the United States and Canada and open to all scholars from North America and beyond, including graduate students. The PNRS is an affiliate of both the Renaissance Society of America and the Canadian Society for Renaissance Studies / Société Canadienne d’études de la Renaissance.

 

For individual papers, please send a one-page abstract or proposal and a one-page c.v. to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it no later than July 15th, 2014.

 

To propose a panel, please send an abstract for each paper, a one-page c.v. for each presenter, and a paragraph from the panel organizer describing the overall focus of the session to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it no later than July 15th, 2014.

 

Papers must be kept to a twenty-minute reading time, including any technical and electronic support. All papers should be essentially new and never before presented in public.
