1990

Globe Theatre Site

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 142. Thursday, 27 Dec 1990.
 
Date:     Thu, 20 Dec 90 10:51 EST
From:     <COX@HOPE>
Subject:  Globe archeology
 
 
        I have just had a letter from Andrew Gurr, of the University of
Reading.  He is the principal academic consultant to the Rose and Globe
digs.  His letter appeals for mail to be sent to the Secretary of State
for the Environment and the head of English Heritage on behalf of the
Globe dig.
 
        His letter is too long to type here in full, but the gyst of it
is that the government is planning to put the Globe dig on hold for twenty-
five years.  Apparently this plan is not yet policy, and time remains to
influence the decision.  Hence Gurr's appeal for letters.  If you believe
the dig is important enough to proceed with at once, and if you are in-
clined to write two letters, please address them to:
 
                Michael Heseltine
                Secretary of State for the Environment
                c/o Heritage Division
                Department of the Environment
                2 Marsham Street
                London SW1P 3EB
 
                Dr. Geoffrey Wainwright
                English Heritage
                Fortress House
                23 Savile Row
                London W1X 2HE
 
        Incidentally, I wrote to inform Andrew Gurr of the existence of
SHAKSPER and to suggest that he subscribe to it, so he could issue future
letter requests by means of it.
 
Season's greetings (even if they come after Ken's hiatus),

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 141. Wednesday, 19 Dec 1990.
 
Date:     Wed, 19 Dec 90 13:21:03
From:     "R.J.C. Watt" <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Subject:  Florizel's dress
 
Beth Christopher asks why Florizel's dress appears to change from that of
a shepherd to that of a courtier sometime in the course of _The Winter's
Tale_ IV.iv.
 
A good enough answer is to be found in Pafford's note to IV.iv.1 on
p. 89 of his Arden edition of the play.

Season's Greetings

Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 140. Wednesday, 19 Dec 1990.
 
Date:         Wed, 19 Dec 90 00:01:34 EST
From:         Ken Steele <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>
Subject:      Season's Greetings
 
 
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
 
As I suspect I have already suggested, the annual exam / essay crunch
has hit, and discussion on SHAKSPER, like that on REED-L, has suddenly
ground to a halt in response to increased marking responsibilities,
studying preparation, and/or preparations for seasonal festivities.
 
I myself just barely surfaced above a flood of undergraduate essays,
only to be awash in waves of greeting cards, gift shopping, and
babysitting.  Discussion on SHAKSPER will unfortunately be halted
between December 20th and 28th, as I will be away from my terminal
(and the EPAS and ListServ facilities at Toronto will be operating
unattended, which may mean that they will be inoperating unattended).
If anyone has any messages they wish to transmit before this protracted
hiatus, please submit them today.
 
As always, my apologies to anyone this may inconvenience or disappoint,
in particular our new members who have seen SHAKSPER only in its most
silent mode.  I will do my best to stimulate further discussion once
we have all recovered from term end and/or the holidays.
 
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish each and every one
of you a truly joyous holiday season, whether Christmas, Hanukkah,
or simply the semester break.  Also best wishes for a happy, healthy, and
productive New Year!
 
See you in a week.
                                    Ken Steele
                                    University of Toronto

Subject: Linguistics List
 
[I reproduce this announcement from the ANSAX-L Discussion Group,
 because I think it might interest members of SHAKSPER as well.  KS]
 
 
                   ANNOUNCING A NEW LIST
 
                This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
         A new list has been formed, which will serve as a place of
discussion for those issues which concern the academic discipline of
linguistics and related fields.  The list is international in orientation,
and hopes to provide a forum for the community of linguists as they exist
in different countries.  Though the list is moderated, and all submissions
are subject to editorial discretion, it has no areal, ideological or
theoretical bent, and discussion of any linguistic subfield are welcomed.
Membership of the list is open to all.
 
    To subscribe to this list, please send a message to

line the following:
 
         SUBSCRIBE LINGUIST
