                        OHIO SHAKESPEARE CONFERENCE 1993
 
                           March 25-27, 1993
 
 
    The Ohio Shakespeare Conference for 1993 will be held in Cleveland OH and
    hosted jointly by Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland State
    University.  The topic for the conference will be:
 
 
    "There the Whole Palace Open'd": Court and Society in Jacobean England
 
 
    This will be an interdisciplinary conference drawing on the work of literary
    scholars, historians, art historians and musicologists. The central topic is
    the court of King James: its structure; organization; political, social and
    aesthetic tastes; impact on local and wider English histories. In pursuing
    the court's images and accounts of itself, the conference will include a
    full-scale, historically informed reconstruction of the masque
 
 
    			"Oberon, the Faery Prince"
 
 
    by Ben Jonson, Inigo Jones, Robert Jones and others. Consideration of Oberon
    as an instance of Jacobean court culture  will include a discussion of the
    production with the professional artists involved: stage director,
    choreographer and music director.
 
 
    Plenary speakers at the conference will be:
 
    Prof. Leeds Barroll, University of Maryland
 
    Prof. Peter Holman, University of Essex
