Subject: 	Waterloo Conference on Elizabethan Theatre
Date: 		Wed, 24 Jul 91 10:45:58 EDT
 
Dear Fellow SHAKSPEReans;
 
	My apologies, particularly to those who have
submitted notes, for the delays in distributing SHAKSPER
this week.  I have been spending my days at the
University of Waterloo, Ontario, for the 14th
International Conference on Elizabethan Theatre, "Women
and the Elizabethan Theatre" (and my evenings have been
spent unpacking crates at our new address).
 
	Other members of SHAKSPER in Waterloo this week
include Ed Pechter (Concordia), Kay Stockholder (UBC),
and Steven Urkowitz (CUNY); and I've also been pleased to
meet a number of scholars who are very interested in
joining us here on Bitnet, including Leeds Barroll
(Maryland), Alan Somerset (Western Ontario), and June
Schlueter (co-editor of *Shakespeare Bulletin*).  Look
for their names here soon.  (Incidentally, some of you
may also know Marga Munkelt, a West-German textual
scholar who has just gained network access in order to
join us here too.)
 
	The Waterloo conference, which has always been a
relaxed, intimate gathering, has 63 pre-registered
delegates this year, and an increasing number of graduate
students.  Unlike the larger SAA and ISA meetings, the
Waterloo conference has no parallel sessions and plenty
of spare time for conversation and/or dining.  (For
details on the papers being presented, see the tentative
schedule WATERLOO CONFRNCE SHAKSPER on the Fileserver).
Each evening of the four-day conference, delegates travel
to the Stratford (Ontario) Festival (this year they see
*MAAN*, *12N*, *Les Belles Soeurs*, *Hamlet*, and
*Timon*).  The conference is held every two years, and I
heartily recommend the next one to anyone who can attend.
(More information will be posted on the 1993 conference
as it becomes available).
 
	The following posting announces an eclectic
combination of Elizabethan events featuring
Shakespeareans Andrew Gurr and Jill Levenson, to be held
at Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, Ontario) in
January 1992.  Hope to see some of you there!
 
						Ken
