Subject: 1991 SAA Conference in Vancouver
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
I just received the January 1991 Bulletin of the Shakespeare Association
of America, which includes details of the 1991 Annual Meeting, scheduled
for Vancouver, British Columbia, in March. Although those of you who
belong to the SAA will probably have received this information via the
usual channels, I append relevant information for SHAKSPEReans who have
not. This is on the assumption that potential SAA members, and
SHAKSPEReans who are simply curious about current trends in scholarship,
will be interested in the Conference Programme.
After the conference, I hope that SHAKSPER will serve as a forum in
which to continue discussion about issues raised in Vancouver. Until
then, however, I should remind members of Seminar 1 that many of us are
on SHAKSPER, and ready and willing to discuss our abstracts and papers
This file has also been placed on the SHAKSPER Fileserver, as VANCOUVR
SHAKSPEReans can retrieve files or logbooks from the SHAKSPER
Fileserver by issuing the interactive command, "TELL LISTSERV
AT UTORONTO GET fname ftype SHAKSPER". If your network link does
not support the interactive "TELL" command, or if Listserv rejects
your request, then send a one-line mail message (without a subject
line) to LISTSERV@utoronto, reading "GET fname ftype SHAKSPER".
For a complete list of files available, send the command "GET
SHAKSPER FILES SHAKSPER" to obtain an annotated index. (Note that
the "INDEX SHAKSPER" and "GET FILELIST SHAKSPER" commands will
result in an *un*annotated list generated automatically by
Listserv. These lists include size information, but are less
legible to human eyes.)

SHAKSPER GUIDE, or contact the editor, <
